Fred Sanford (Redd Foxx) and his son, Lamont (Demond Wilson) own and operate Sanford and Son Salvage, where they collect and resell second hand items, antiques and junk. Their hilarious adventures and business dealings set the stage for some classic television comedy.
Sanford and Son ran for five seasons on NBC, earning four Emmy nominations, a Golden Globe for Redd Foxx and the distinction of being the highest rated show on the network for four years.
Since much of the first season was based on previously written material, the series had yet to create many of the great supporting characters we all remember, like Aunt Esther, Grady, Bubba, and Rollo. However, in "The Copper Caper," we meet Officers Smitty and Swanny for the first time. Below is a brief summary of all of the episodes you will get in this set.
1. "Crossed Swords"- When Lamont buys a valuable porcelain statue for $15.00, he auctions it off to make enough money to start his own business.
2. "Happy Birthday, Pop"- Lamont tries to make Fred's sixty-fifth birthday special, but it's not going to be easy to please his dad.
3. "Here Comes the Bride, There Goes the Bride"- It's Lamont's wedding day and he's left at the altar by his bride, who has cold feet. The family gets together back at the house for a "reception," where the main topic of conversation is who gets to keep the gifts.
4. "The Copper Caper"- Another one of Lamont's moneymaking schemes backfires when he and Fred are duped into buying stolen copper.
5. "A Matter of Life and Breath"- Lamont's plan to get Fred to give up smoking crumbles when he joins him for a free test at the Breath Mobile and receives alarming results.

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

The Jeffersons: Complete first season 2 dvd set (13 episodes)

I purchased the Sanford and Son DVD series a few months ago and I am pleased with my purchase. I already had about 120 episodes recorded on cheap video tapes and the quality on these does not come close to the DVD's. This set is better than the one's that...advertises under their "TV Greats" section because you get the entire first season, episodes 1-14 on 2 DVD's...The..."TV Greats" version gives you 4 episodes for the same...price and those 4 episodes could be from any one of the 5 seasons. This is a must for every Sanford and Son fan however if you are a fan of Esther, Rollo, Grady, Bubba, or any of the other more famous supporting characters then don't buy this DVD. I would try to rent it first because those supporting characters don't appear in Sanford and Son until season 2 and later. These DVD's are from the first season when Fred was Fred and Lamont was trying to find his niche....Have you seen what the going price is for one season of "Friends" or "The Sopranos?"...I cannot wait until the 2nd season is released. Does anyone know when that will be?

Format: DVD
This is a sitcom about a father & son who are as different as could be, & yet care deeply for each other. The most basic format & probably the best one is the interaction of the characters. Today style & scenery can overshadow the scripts & actors. Not so here, the raw angst & bond between father & son has often been overlooked in this underappreciated show. Junkyard owner the devious, lazy Fred Sanford{Redd Foxx}, & his overworked, verbally haranged{you big dummy}, son Lamont{Demond Wilson], had little peace or prosperity.

Both are tragic figures running in place trying to scrape out a living in the Watts area of Los Angeles. Three episodes stand out in my memory. "Here Comes The Bride, There Goes The bride," Lamont's fiancee leaves him at the alter & her family wants to take back their gifts. Fred & Lamont eventually leave on the honeymoon vacation together. In "A Pad For Lamont," Fred constantly interrupts Lamont's dates, he moves out to pursue the single life in privacy only to find out that the grass is no greener away from his father. The viewer feels Lamonts frustration leaping off the screen. In "The Barracuda," fred's proposal of marriage to the widow Donna harris prompts a ton of loud objections from bewildered Lamont. In the ensuing machinations hilarity rules, as Lamont got his way by ruining the upcoming nuptuals. After the season of fred's torments the viewer will surely be rooting for Lamont. This was not their funniest season, but a fine start nonetheless.
