About this item
Fred Sanford and his 34-year-old son live together, many times lacking in harmony, attempting to support themselves as junk dealers. They are surrounded by a cast of characters who help them keep their sense of humor. Return for more laughs with "Sanford And Son: The Third Season", starring legendary comedian, Redd Foxx, as grumpy Los Angeles junk dealer, Fred Sanford, and Demond Wilson as his long-suffering son, Lamont. Emmy-nominated "Sanford and Son" was breakthrough TV, as seminal as it was sidesplitting, ushering in an African-American perspective to the small screen. Golden Globe-winner Foxx told it like it was, raising the roof with his bold brand of outrageous humor, as phrases like "You big dummy!" "How'd you like one across your lip?" and "I'm coming, Elizabeth," all entered pop culture. Created by Norman Lear ("All In The Family"), "Sanford and Son" was as hilarious as it was historic, the first TV sitcom featuring an African-American cast and urban themes, as Fred and Lamont forever dreamed and schemed of making a better life. Returning cast members included Bible-thumping sister-in-law Aunt Esther (LaWanda Page), Fred's girlfriend, Donna (Lynn Hamilton), and old pal Grady (Whitman Mayo), who even got his own spin-off series, "Grady." Cool cameos during the show's third season includes Soul Sisters, The Three Degrees and Antonio "Huggy Bear" Fargas, among others. For fans and collectors alike, this deluxe three-DVD edition, compiling the series' complete 24-episode third season, is unquestionably "The Big One!" TV Trivia Factoid: Episode 19 was written but never filmed, due to contract disputes between star Redd Foxx and the show's producers. The negotiations also force Foxx not to appear in Season Three's final six episodes. He returned to the hit series at the start of the fourth season.
