Fred and his son Lamont (Demond Wilson) work together in the salvage yard and have a hilariously rocky, no-holds-barred father-son relationship. Nominated for multiple awards, Foxx won

I love Sanford and Sun
Verified purchase
I love Sanford and Sun, but the sounds in these episodes are off and the words are not matched up from their mouth movement.

One of the best all-time SITCOMs
Verified purchase
One of the best all-time SITCOMs! The humor and talent on this show were unrivaled at the time, and Redd Foxx is an American comedy icon. Must watch for those who hate political correctness.
