Sanford and Son first aired in January of 1972 on NBC as a mid-season replacement. The series was the second series created by the All in the Family creator, Norman Lear and it was based on the British sitcom, Steptoe and Son. Sanford and Son was the first sitcom that Lear created that had a cast composed mostly of African Americans. Lear would follow it up in 1974 with Good Times and The Jeffersons in 1975. Sanford and Son was also the only Lear sitcom that didn't air on CBS.

Sanford and Son starred stand-up comedian, Redd Foxx as 65-year old junk collector, Fred Sanford. Fred ran his junk collection business from his home located in Los Angeles. His home was run-down but it was comfortable enough for him and his son, Lamont, with whom he lived with and who was a partner in the business. Lamont was dissatisfied with the business and would threaten to leave but Fred would fake a heart attack and yell "I'm coming, Elizabeth." Elizabeth had been Fred's wife who had preceded him in death.

Fred’s wife and Lamont’s mother Elizabeth had passed away more than 20 years ago. Fred showed special interest in a female character of the show Julio, a Puerto Rican who is a friend of her late. Lamont is a restless person who on many occasions wanted to leave his father’s business and wanted to try his luck elsewhere. But every time Fred manages to pull some trick on him like faking a heart attack to get his son to stay. The other main characters of the show included Esther Anderson and Grady Wilson.
