Product Description

"Elizabeth! I'm comin, honey!" Those were the words often heard coming from 9114 South Central, home to Fred Sanford (Redd Foxx) and his son Lamont (Demond Wilson) - known more affectionately to each other as "Pop" and "Dummy" - and their junkyard business. Sanford and Son was the second TV series from Norman Lear and Bud Yorkin, who created the groundbreaking "All in the Family" the year before. "Sanford and Son" aired from 1972-1977 and was NBC's most popular prime-time series for four of its five seasons, earning four Emmy nominations and a Golden-Globe Award for Redd Foxx during its run. Enjoy this hysterical first season - or you'll get one across the lip.

Format: DVD
Complete first season of the hilarious sitcom about a 65 year old junk dealer, Fred Sanford(Redd Foxx), and his son/partner, Lamont (Demond Wilson) is a classic. The same people (Norman Lear, Bud Yorkin, etc.) who dominated 1970s television comedy by bringing us All in the Family (1971), Maude (1972), Good Times (1974), and The Jeffersons (1975) also did Sanford and Son (1972). Sanford & Son does not play much on TV anymore, so if you havent had the pleasure of seeing it, but are a fan of any of the previously listed shows I highly recommend it. Redd Foxx was a comedic genius and this show features his best work. This DVD set will feature the first 14 episodes (Jan - April 1972), here are the titles:
01) Crossed Swords
02) Happy Birthday, Pop
03) Here comes the bride, there goes the bride
04) The copper caper
05) A matter of life and breath
06) We were robbed
07) A pad for Lamont
08) The great Sanford Siege
09) Coffins for sale
10) The Barracuda
11) TV or not TV
12) The suitcase case
13) The return of the Barracuda
14) The piano movers
Also recommended:
All in the Family: Complete first season 3 dvd set (13 episodes)
The Jeffersons: Complete first season 2 dvd set (13 episodes)

"Sanford and Son" was an American version of a British show "Steptoe and Son." The premise is the antics of junkman Fred Sanford and his son Lamont. Most of the episodes in the first season were basically adaptations of "Steptoe and Son" episodes.
Nevertheless, you get the entire first season here and it's worth every penny. Obviously, this show was ahead of its time and un p.c. as well. One significant plus with this first season is that you will get each episode in its entirety. TV Land obviously has to edit out certain parts (ie Fred using the N word)for today's audiences.
You also see the evolution of Fred and Lamont, along with Fred's buddy Melvin(played by longtime Redd Foxx partner Slappy White), and see early nemesis' of Fred like Aunt Hazel (Esther didn't appear until season two). All of the episodes are excellent, with my favorites being "Piano Movers", "Happy Birthday, Pop" "We Were Robbed", and "Color TV."
I can't emphasise how important this show was in the realm of pop culture and some of the issues tackled are still relevant today. Nothing like this will ever hit the airwaves again. Pick up the Season 2 and 3 sets as well.

Cantankerous, and somewhat crude, but with a good heart (no pun intended), Redd Foxx is Fred Sanford, an LA junk dealer, in business with his son Lamont, played by Demond Wilson. Sanford and Son, produced by Norman Lear, was the first of his comedies centered on characters of African-American decent, and like "All In the Family", was based on an English sitcom.
Any new program goes through a growth process, as the characters are developed, and the show establishes an identity. Opening with Quincy Jones's classic theme, this program plays to the basic father and son relationship, with dashes of race based humor. Foxx, a night club comedian, tones his act down for TV, and as Fred Sanford, creates a minor TV icon. Among his trademarks, referring to Lamont as "dummy", threatening to deliver one "across the lip", and feigning cardiac arrest. Thoughtful and reasonable, Lamont, is the calming influence, trying to keep Fred from going too far. If Fred's "charm" doesn't win you over, you won't be watching this program for very long.
The quality of the episodes varies, but those that feature the Sanfords actually engaged in the junk business, generally hold your interest. In "The Piano Movers", the guys are involved in trying to remove a piano from an eccentric gentlemen's apartment. "The Copper Caper", finds the junkmen involved with a shady character dealing in stolen copper piping. In "Coffins for Sale", Lamont brings home, and stores in the house, a couple of coffins he picked up at a bargain price.
When it comes to love and romance, these gents have their ups and downs. Classy actress Lynn Hamilton, guests twice as Donna Harris, Fred's love interest. Nicknamed "the barracuda", she endures much abuse at the hands of both Sanfords, with no justification.

Redd Foxx was already well-known in "stag party circles" for his countless "raunchy comedy records" of the 1950s & 1960s, when the irrepressible comic "landed" Sanford & Son, the story of a biggoted junk yard proprietor with a knack for faking heart attacks and kicking people out of his "Kingdom".
DeMont Wilson plays Fred Sanford's loyal 30-something son, who is half of "Sanford & Son", yet seems to be doing almost all of the work. Aunt Esther (played by Foxx's childhood friend LaWanda Paige) is the long-suffering (Bible-beating) sister-in-law, who is routinely insulted by the outrageously rude Fred. A caravan of party-happy "pals" and many well-known actors making cameo appearances all ensure a great time!
This series was definitely treading on fresh sit-com ground. Many prior "tabus" have been removed, and the envelope was pushed farther than it had ever been dared to. The "n" word flew freely, as did every other thinkable (and unthinkable) ethnic "put down". Sanford & Son delivered a new kind of sit-com, one that definitely has departed from Leave-It-To-Beaver-Land and arrived in urban Los Angeles of the early 1970s.
The laughs are genuine, the characters real and endearing, the story lines current (by 1970s standards) and engaging. The DVD perks (MANY extras) make this "first season set" an easy pick. The reasonable price is the clincher! This is the big one, Elizabeth!
