'70s Sitcom Nostalgia

The popular sitcom "Sanford & Son" debuted today on January 14, 1972 and ran until March 25, 1977. The show was a mid-season replacement on NBC, but became an instant hit with viewers. Aside from the cantankerous junk dealer and his son, there were plenty of others who rounded out the cast including the actors who played Aunt Esther, Grady, Bubba and Rollo. I have friends who have seasons of the show in their DVD collection. Check out the intro theme in the video which was produced by the legendary Quincy Jones. The red pickup truck was used to haul the junk they collected.
