Sanford and Son

Junk dealer Fred Sanford was Norman Lear's black counterpart to Archie Bunker. The gravel-voiced widower hurled outrageous one-liners at his Bible-toting sister-in-law, Esther; cooked up get-rich-quick schemes with buddies Grady (who got his own spin-off series) and Bubba; and feigned countless 'big ones' (heart attacks) to win the sympathy of long-suffering son Lamont. Based on the British series Steptoe and Son<'a>, the show consistently ranked in the Top 10.

    Yes, and I think we did 'Steptoe and Son' much better.
