Fred and Lamont Sanford
Sanford and Son stars Redd Foxx as Fred G. Sanford, a 65-year-old widower (although Foxx was younger in intrinsic ) and garbage businesswoman living at 9114 S. Chief Ave. in the Watts neighborhood of South Chief Los Angeles, California; alongside Demond Wilson as his 30-year-old son, Lamont Sanford. In his man, Fred moved to South Chief Los Angeles from his hometown of St. Louis.

On the show«s debut in 1972, newspaper ads touted Foxx as NBC»s declaration to Archie Bunker, the jaundiced snow-white supporter of All in the Next Of Kin. (Both shows were adapted by Norman Lear from BBC shows; Sanford And Son was adapted from Steptoe and Son and All in the Next Of Kin was the American translation of Plow End Us Do Forgo.)

Fred Sanford
Foxx portrayed Sanford as a acerbic, irascible schemer whose numerous get-resonant-bright ideas routinely backfire. His son Lamont longs for autonomy, but he loves his pa too much to influence out on his own and resign the bother-reclining Fred unsupervised. Though each owns an proportionate interest in the trade and though, technically, Fred is the boss, Lamont often finds himself doing all the trade and having to on the blink his pa to crown tasks and duties. Fred often insults his son, usually m him a «big dummy.» Lamont also insults his pa, referring to him as an «old fool.» However, the two interest a constraints and regularly come to each other«s aid. One affair in the second condition featured a compute in which Fred and Lamont had such a fervent wrangle over the trade that Lamont take off and went to trade for one of Sanford and Son»s chief rivals. Meanwhile, Fred filled Lamont«s bent with a lay-about who fatigued Fred»s medium of exchange on a ineffective jotting. When Lamont quits his job and Fred fires his new man, the two arbitrate to fix their partnership despite the truth that both are too proud to accept that they couldn't clear the way it without each other.

Fred is a widower whose strife Elizabeth, according to some intelligence from Fred, died around 1947. He would look up (as to ecstasy) with his at one«s fingertips across his box in times of grief, faking a stomach wasting by saying «This is The Big One, Elizabeth! (I»m coming to associate oneself with you...)«[2] Fred raised Lamont alone and missed Elizabeth deep down. According to Fred, his son was named for Lamont Lomax, a (presumably fanciful) pitcher from the Homestead Grays. In one affair, Lamont asks why he didn't have a mid-section name. Fred tells him Lamont is his mid-section name: he and Elizabeth never came up with a first name. However, it was also known in the 3rd affair in the first condition, Lamont was named »Lamont Grady Sanford».

At first, Fred«s power wafer on the appear is his sister-in-law and Lamont»s aunt, Ethel (Beah Richards). Ethel«s involvement in the Sanford next of kin squabbles lasts only until midway through the second condition, whereupon she is replaced with her more turnover-tongued sister, Esther (LaWanda Call For). Fred and Esther»s relationship as in-laws goes on to become a power forgo of the compute. The two habitually mercantilism insults, usually instigated by Fred (he often contorts his lineaments upon Esther«s access and uses disparaging and colorful metaphors to retail her), whereas Esther on the whole retorts «WATCH it, sucka», attacks Fred with her loot, and refers to Fred as «you old heathen». Esther»s disdain for Fred goes clandestinely to when he and Elizabeth were dating; she disapproved of Fred marrying her sister.

A contest gag on the appear is that whenever Lamont threatens to influence out or things are not going Fred«s way, he will counterfeit a stomach wasting and say something like, «You pay attention to that, Elizabeth? I»m coming to associate oneself with ya, honey!» No one, however, falls for the vacant wile. (Foxx himself died of a stomach wasting in 1991 during the filming of The Superior Next Of Kin.) Despite his stubbornness and irascible kind, Fred sometimes redeems himself with acts of sympathy, even to those (like Esther) whom he insists he does not like. In the last affair of the series, Fred earns his considerable philosophy diploma, and is the valedictorian of his graduating class.

Earlier in the show«s run, it adheres more closely to the form laid out by its British antecedent, Steptoe and Son with 16 episodes (12 in condition one and 4 in condition two) being remakes from its antecedent, with Fred and Lamont often at loggerheads over various issues. Fred and Lamont are also depicted as being equally manipulative. Fred»s manipulative acts consist mainly of his persistent threats of «the big one» and avoiding vade-mecum labor due to his «arthur-itis»; Lamont«s subsume his attempts to force a fissure between Fred and his girlfriend, Donna Harris (Lynn Hamilton), whom he sees as usurping his mother»s place.

Lamont Sanford
Lamont is depicted at times as the greedier of the two. In one affair, for example, he refuses to retail two coffins for less than what he thinks they were importance, despite the truth that this clearly upsets his superstitious pa. Lamont sometimes receives his comeuppance for being contumelious of his father«s habits and ways. (One example of this is the dated Lamont is upbraided by a Nigerian daily he hopes to emphasize by «adopting» African culture; she considers his bent towards Fred to be rude.) There are moments when Lamont is shown to be naive and balmy, such as the affair where he invites his new «friends» over to stage play poker. His suiting someone to a t-savvy pa sees right away that they are out to deceiver Lamont after they procure his coolness by letting him win a few smaller-stakes games. Fred then turns the tables on the scammers by pretending to be unschooled of poker himself, agreeing to stage play a few hands and then engaging all of their medium of exchange by means of a considerable deck of cards and peculiar glasses that allow him to see what he is dealing. A almost identical dilemma befalls Lamont in the second condition when he gets byzantine in an unethical huge quantity by buying a god willing valuable Regency commode from a daily for a reel-rear end penalty, then selling it clandestinely to her quash at coupled the penalty. He then takes an put on the market from a third dinner party for quadruple that penalty while Fred tries over and over again to notify him that he is doing something abandoned. Lamont becomes so put out that he threatens to bar Fred in his bedroom. Decisively, due to some inquisition on Fred»s forgo, it is revealed that Lamont has been scammed, the pot is a counterfeit and the two men have made off with several hundred dollars of Lamont's medium of exchange.

One persistent with Lamont (particularly in the second condition) is that he is always trying to judge new ways to influence up in the humanity, and away from the garbage trade, but is often thwarted by Fred«s obstruction. In the first affair, he buys a god willing valuable disintegrate of porcelain from an decrepit daily in Beverly Hills with the objective of selling at auction. However, Fred messes things up at the auction and Lamont ends up buying the disintegrate clandestinely from himself. In the second condition, Lamont buys a terrorist war rummage through from an auction with the aim to retail it for thousands. While investigating it, Fred accidentally fires the gun through the lineaments window and he and Lamont dissipate all darkness wondering if he»s accidentally killed the neighbor across the suiting someone to a t. In a go to pieces, Lamont melts the gun down with a blowtorch before realizing that the neighbor went out on a rare move out of township. In one affair, he attempts to become an actor, Lamont and Rollo declaration an ad for wannabe dusky fog actors for an unearned fog callers only to earn that it is really a nasty fog plant. In another affair, he answers an ad to move around the humanity working on a drifter steamer, which would mean putting Fred in a nursing accommodation, but Fred tricks him into not going. During the third condition, Lamont attempts to vacant a side trade with Julio selling used automobile parts. Fred is so put out by the mental image that he moves out and into a fall flat line. Lamont at last gets Fred to come accommodation, but it is never said whether or not he changed his disregard about the new trade venture.

The most substantial modulation in Lamont's position throughout the series was his bent toward his trade, his pa and his approaching. In the very first affair, he is portrayed as against and piqued toward Fred and the he is phoney to fare. This would last through the mid-section of the first condition, especially in an affair when he takes Fred out for his birthday and is piqued and frustrated every dated Fred says or does anything. At the end of the darkness, he becomes so piqued that he abandons Fred at the restaurant, leaving his pa to convoy accommodation in the sprinkle. His bent towards Fred would soften by mid-condition as episodes tended to concentrate more on the two working together to reveal a incorrigible, as when several banknote collectors converged on the line looming to repossess their possessions. He would modulation throughout the series and become a man dedicated to his trade and to his pa, but also who would try new things and new ideas to better himself, such as when he attempts to hold his African tradition or later when he tries to run for Express Assemblyman.
