Fred Sanford
Foxx portrayed Sanford as a sardonic, irascible schemer whose recurrent get-opulence-fleet ideas routinely backfire. His son Lamont longs for self-confidence, but he loves his pa too much to pull up stakes out on his own and go away the discord-decumbent Fred unsupervised. Though each owns an the same as equity in the function and though, technically, Fred is the boss, Lamont often finds himself doing all the travail and having to broken-down his pa to absolute tasks and duties. Fred often insults his son, usually line him a «big dummy.» Lamont also insults his pa, referring to him as an «old fool.» However, the two equity a close down b close union and regularly come to each other«s aid. One occurrence in the second condition featured a determine in which Fred and Lamont had such a stimulated affray over the function that Lamont discharged and went to travail for one of Sanford and Son»s chief rivals. Meanwhile, Fred filled Lamont«s with a lay-about who puke Fred»s moneyed on a hopeless detail. When Lamont quits his job and Fred fires his new man, the two reach to emend their partnership despite the low-down that both are too proud to declare that they couldn't announce it without each other.

Fred is a widower whose old lady Elizabeth, according to some bumf from Fred, died around 1947. He would look up (as to valhalla) with his to across his casket in times of suffering, faking a magnanimity begin by saying «This is The Big One, Elizabeth! (I«m coming to ally you...)»[2] Fred raised Lamont alone and missed Elizabeth completely. According to Fred, his son was named for Lamont Lomax, a (presumably imaginary) pitcher from the Homestead Grays. In one occurrence, Lamont asks why he didn»t have a magnanimity name. Fred tells him Lamont is his magnanimity name: he and Elizabeth never came up with a first name. However, it was also known in the 3rd occurrence in the first condition, Lamont was named «Lamont Grady Sanford».

At first, Fred«s dominant spoil someone»s game on the come is his sister-in-law and Lamont«s aunt, Ethel (Beah Richards). Ethel»s involvement in the Sanford one«s own flesh squabbles lasts only until midway through the second condition, whereupon she is replaced with her more acrid-tongued sister, Esther (LaWanda Announce). Fred and Esther»s relationship as in-laws goes on to become a primary contribute to of the determine. The two commonly business insults, usually instigated by Fred (he often contorts his features upon Esther«s admittance and uses disparaging and colorful metaphors to narrate her), whereas Esther broadly retorts «WATCH it, sucka», attacks Fred with her shekels, and refers to Fred as «you old heathen». Esther»s disdain for Fred goes retreat from to when he and Elizabeth were dating; she disapproved of Fred marrying her sister.

A operation gag on the come is that whenever Lamont threatens to pull up stakes out or things are not going Fred«s way, he will modify a magnanimity begin and say something like, «You consent that, Elizabeth? I»m coming to ally ya, honey!» No one, however, falls for the straightforward trick. (Foxx himself died of a magnanimity begin in 1991 during the filming of The Regal One's Own Flesh.) Despite his stubbornness and irascible disposition, Fred sometimes redeems himself with acts of turn, even to those (like Esther) whom he insists he does not like. In the last occurrence of the series, Fred earns his considerable lyceum 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 ancestor, Steptoe and Son with 16 episodes (12 in condition one and 4 in condition two) being remakes from its ancestor, 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 perpetual threats of «the big one» and avoiding enchiridion labor due to his «arthur-itis»; Lamont«s beadroll his attempts to shepherd a split 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 occurrence, for example, he refuses to shop-girl two coffins for less than what he thinks they were significance, despite the low-down that this clearly upsets his superstitious pa. Lamont sometimes receives his comeuppance for being lordly of his father«s habits and ways. (One example of this is the just the same from yet to yet Lamont is upbraided by a Nigerian number he hopes to influence by «adopting» African culture; she considers his bent towards Fred to be impudent.) There are moments when Lamont is shown to be naive and halfwitted, such as the occurrence where he invites his new «friends» over to entertainment poker. His road-savvy pa sees right away that they are out to con Lamont after they addition his self-confidence by letting him win a few smaller-stakes games. Fred then turns the tables on the scammers by pretending to be oblivious of poker himself, agreeing to entertainment a few hands and then captivating all of their moneyed by means of a considerable deck of cards and prime glasses that allow him to see what he is dealing. A like emergency befalls Lamont in the second condition when he gets tortuous in an unethical shop-girl by buying a god willing valuable Regency commode from a number for a surprise-posterior bounty, then selling it retreat from to her placate at spit the bounty. He then takes an announce from a third fete for quadruple that bounty while Fred tries over and over again to alert him that he is doing something impure. Lamont becomes so put out that he threatens to ringlet Fred in his bedroom. Irrevocably, due to some probe on Fred»s contribute to, it is revealed that Lamont has been scammed, the pot is a modify and the two men have made off with several hundred dollars of Lamont's moneyed.

One perpetual with Lamont (particularly in the second condition) is that he is always trying to judge new ways to pull up stakes up in the clique, and away from the scrap function, but is often thwarted by Fred«s impedance. In the first occurrence, he buys a god willing valuable musical number of porcelain from an aged number in Beverly Hills with the intent of selling at auction. However, Fred messes things up at the auction and Lamont ends up buying the musical number retreat from from himself. In the second condition, Lamont buys a different war pillage from an auction with the steady to shop-girl it for thousands. While investigating it, Fred accidentally fires the gun through the face window and he and Lamont disburse all incessantly wondering if he»s accidentally killed the neighbor across the road. In a frighten, Lamont melts the gun down with a blowtorch before realizing that the neighbor went out on a rare oversight out of municipality. In one occurrence, he attempts to become an actor, Lamont and Rollo satisfy an ad for wannabe swarthy glaze actors for an spontaneous glaze entourage only to produce that it is really a taboo glaze plant. In another occurrence, he answers an ad to take around the clique working on a derelict steamer, which would mean putting Fred in a nursing shelter, but Fred tricks him into not going. During the third condition, Lamont attempts to unbarred a side function with Julio selling used automobile parts. Fred is so put out by the philosophy that he moves out and into a drop down firm. Lamont in due course gets Fred to come shelter, but it is never said whether or not he changed his desire about the new function venture.

The most critical alter in Lamont's type throughout the series was his bent toward his travail, his pa and his to be to come. In the very first occurrence, he is portrayed as inhospitable and provoked toward Fred and the just the same from yet to yet he is feigned to real. This would last through the magnanimity of the first condition, especially in an occurrence when he takes Fred out for his birthday and is provoked and frustrated every just the same from yet to yet Fred says or does anything. At the end of the incessantly, he becomes so provoked that he abandons Fred at the restaurant, leaving his pa to proceed shelter in the shower. His bent towards Fred would soften by mid-condition as episodes tended to target more on the two working together to crack a obstreperous, as when several tabulation collectors converged on the firm minatory to repossess their chattels. He would alter throughout the series and become a man dedicated to his travail and to his pa, but also who would try new things and new ideas to better himself, such as when he attempts to avail oneself of his African tradition or later when he tries to run for Country Assemblyman.
