Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Politically incorrect comedy is the order of the day when the Sanfords, one of TV's most endearingly cantankerous families, return for another season of junkyard mischief. Join Fred Redd Foxx, Lamont Demond Wilson, Aunt Esther LaWanda Page, and an inimitable supporting cast as they trade countless barbs and insults in Norman Lear's classic, stereotype-skewering series. In a minor bit of TV history, Redd Foxx does not appear in the season's final six episodes, as he was in the midst of contract negotiations he returns in Season 4. This three-disc set includes all 24 third-season episodes in their original broadcast order and offers a visit with America's favorite albeit only TV family of junk sellers.

    Perhaps the strongest season

    This season includes some of the funniest moments of the series. The episodes of 'Lamont goes Libra' and 'Moma's Baby, Popa's Maybe' are hilarious and somewhat shocking for their day, even shocking by today's standards. This series brilliantly balances social commentary with intelligent, witty comedy. Despite, the show being know for 'Dummie Lamont' and 'Ugly Aunt Ester' jokes, Redd Foxx is a sophisticated comedian who is at his best when he turns racial stereotypes on their head.
