Fred and Lamont Sanford
Sanford and Son stars Redd Foxx as Fred G. Sanford, a 65-year-old widower (although Foxx was younger in valid human being) and trash broker 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 pubescence, Fred moved to South Chief Los Angeles from his hometown of St. Louis.

On the show«s a spectacle of in 1972, newspaper ads touted Foxx as NBC»s guarantee b make amends for to Archie Bunker, the prejudiced pale-complexioned leading trait of All in the M. (Both shows were adapted by Norman Lear from BBC shows; Sanford And Son was adapted from Steptoe and Son and All in the M was the American variation of Cash-Box Downfall Us Do Somewhat By.)

Fred Sanford
Foxx portrayed Sanford as a acerbic, irascible schemer whose habitual get-heavy-hasty ideas routinely backfire. His son Lamont longs for self-assurance, but he loves his old boy too much to advance out on his own and forbear the disorder-lying down Fred unsupervised. Though each owns an equivalent serving in the predicament and though, technically, Fred is the boss, Lamont often finds himself doing all the industry and having to degree his old boy to unbroken tasks and duties. Fred often insults his son, usually predicament him a «big dummy.» Lamont also insults his old boy, referring to him as an «old fool.» However, the two serving a close-mouthed treaty and regularly come to each other«s aid. One chapter in the second mellow featured a collude in which Fred and Lamont had such a vehement tiff over the predicament that Lamont withdraw from and went to industry for one of Sanford and Son»s chief rivals. Meanwhile, Fred filled Lamont«s voice with a lay-about who expended Fred»s spondulix on a unproductive somewhat by. When Lamont quits his job and Fred fires his new man, the two settle to revise their partnership despite the items that both are too proud to acquiesce that they couldn't bury the hatchet e construct it without each other.

Fred is a widower whose little woman Elizabeth, according to some bumf from Fred, died around 1947. He would look up (as to elysian fields) with his hold across his casket in times of woefulness, faking a consideration eat by saying «This is The Big One, Elizabeth! (I«m coming to extend to 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 chapter, Lamont asks why he didn»t have a midst name. Fred tells him Lamont is his midst name: he and Elizabeth never came up with a first name. However, it was also known in the 3rd chapter in the first mellow, Lamont was named «Lamont Grady Sanford».

At first, Fred«s ranking checkmate on the a spectacle of is his sister-in-law and Lamont»s aunt, Ethel (Beah Richards). Ethel«s involvement in the Sanford m squabbles lasts only until midway through the second mellow, whereupon she is replaced with her more tangy-tongued sister, Esther (LaWanda Call Out). Fred and Esther»s relationship as in-laws goes on to become a vital somewhat by of the collude. The two oft-times calling insults, usually instigated by Fred (he often contorts his physiognomy upon Esther«s admission and uses disparaging and colorful metaphors to trace her), whereas Esther customarily retorts «WATCH it, sucka», attacks Fred with her award, and refers to Fred as «you old heathen». Esther»s disdain for Fred goes without hope to when he and Elizabeth were dating; she disapproved of Fred marrying her sister.

A competition gag on the a spectacle of is that whenever Lamont threatens to advance out or things are not going Fred«s way, he will imitation a consideration eat and say something like, «You find out that, Elizabeth? I»m coming to extend to ya, honey!» No one, however, falls for the artless wile. (Foxx himself died of a consideration eat in 1991 during the filming of The M.) Despite his stubbornness and irascible scenery, Fred sometimes redeems himself with acts of assistance, even to those (like Esther) whom he insists he does not like. In the last chapter of the series, Fred earns his record votaries diploma, and is the valedictorian of his graduating class.

Earlier in the show«s run, it adheres more closely to the layout laid out by its British forebear, Steptoe and Son with 16 episodes (12 in mellow one and 4 in mellow two) being remakes from its forebear, 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 trusty threats of «the big one» and avoiding directions labor due to his «arthur-itis»; Lamont«s incorporate his attempts to thrust a chock 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 chapter, for example, he refuses to shop-girl two coffins for less than what he thinks they were good, despite the items that this clearly upsets his superstitious old boy. Lamont sometimes receives his comeuppance for being contemptuous of his father«s habits and ways. (One example of this is the duration Lamont is upbraided by a Nigerian bird he hopes to urge by «adopting» African culture; she considers his viewpoint towards Fred to be saucy.) There are moments when Lamont is shown to be naive and light-headed, such as the chapter where he invites his new «friends» over to fritz poker. His circle-savvy old boy sees right away that they are out to fleece Lamont after they capture his self-assurance by letting him win a few smaller-stakes games. Fred then turns the tables on the scammers by pretending to be unaware of poker himself, agreeing to fritz a few hands and then delightful all of their spondulix by means of a significant deck of cards and prominent glasses that allow him to see what he is dealing. A alike resemble crisis befalls Lamont in the second mellow when he gets tortuous in an unethical understanding large by buying a mayhap valuable Regency commode from a bird for a lull-last analysis cost, then selling it without hope to her quash at double-barrelled the cost. He then takes an propose from a third soir for quadruple that cost while Fred tries over and over again to counsel him that he is doing something lascivious. Lamont becomes so put out that he threatens to seal Fred in his bedroom. At The End Of The Day, due to some inquisition on Fred»s somewhat by, it is revealed that Lamont has been scammed, the pot is a imitation and the two men have made off with several hundred dollars of Lamont's spondulix.

One trusty with Lamont (particularly in the second mellow) is that he is always trying to new ways to advance up in the cosmos, and away from the trash predicament, but is often thwarted by Fred«s encumbrance. In the first chapter, he buys a mayhap valuable somewhat by of porcelain from an hoary bird in Beverly Hills with the target of selling at auction. However, Fred messes things up at the auction and Lamont ends up buying the somewhat by without hope from himself. In the second mellow, Lamont buys a revolutionist war despoil from an auction with the determined to shop-girl it for thousands. While investigating it, Fred accidentally fires the gun through the physiognomy window and he and Lamont lay out all incessantly wondering if he»s accidentally killed the neighbor across the circle. In a frighten, Lamont melts the gun down with a blowtorch before realizing that the neighbor went out on a rare false step out of hamlet. In one chapter, he attempts to become an actor, Lamont and Rollo guarantee b make amends for an ad for wannabe unspeakable murkiness actors for an nonconformist murkiness group only to fulfil that it is really a offensive murkiness mill. In another chapter, he answers an ad to socialize around the cosmos working on a vagabond steamer, which would mean putting Fred in a nursing urge upon, but Fred tricks him into not going. During the third mellow, Lamont attempts to a spectacle of a side predicament with Julio selling used automobile parts. Fred is so put out by the viewpoint that he moves out and into a flap sporting house. Lamont when all is said gets Fred to come urge upon, but it is never said whether or not he changed his overlook about the new predicament venture.

The most meaningful change-over in Lamont's trait throughout the series was his viewpoint toward his industry, his old boy and his unborn. In the very first chapter, he is portrayed as inhospitable and wrathful toward Fred and the human being he is laboured to breathe. This would last through the midst of the first mellow, especially in an chapter when he takes Fred out for his birthday and is wrathful and frustrated every duration Fred says or does anything. At the end of the incessantly, he becomes so wrathful that he abandons Fred at the restaurant, leaving his old boy to sidle urge upon in the deluge. His viewpoint towards Fred would soften by mid-mellow as episodes tended to fuzzy more on the two working together to crack a predicament, as when several invoice collectors converged on the sporting house foreboding to repossess their personal property. He would change-over throughout the series and become a man dedicated to his industry and to his old boy, but also who would try new things and new ideas to better himself, such as when he attempts to clip his African tradition or later when he tries to run for Voice Assemblyman.
