"I could stick your face in dough & make gorilla cookies.", January 1, 2004

24 episodes on 3 DVDs. Color/10 hrs/NR/fullscreen. Though conflict erupted between comic Redd Foxx and the producers of Sanford and Son during its third season, viewers of this three-disc set, which compiles all 24 episodes of the 1973-74 season, are spared the backstage rancor and instead enjoy more hilarious episodes, fueled as always by Foxx's Emmy-nominated performance as cantankerous junkman Fred Sanford. Sanford and Son was a solid ratings hit as it entered its third season (ranked third
Finally, more Sanford & Son has arrived! With more Aunt Esther, Julio, Chico the goat, Bubba, Rollo & lots & lots of Grady! This 3 DVD set contains all 24 episodes of the hilarious 3rd season. The 3rd season, which ran from September 1973 - March 1974, is interesting because Redd Foxx (due to contract disputes with producers) does not appear in the last 6 episodes of the set.

Topic Title Summary Views
Sanford & Son's third season not only debuted Grady Wilson(Whitman Mayo) but boasted many classic episodes including The Chameleon(Blind Mellow Jelly),Lamont, Is That You?(The Gay Blade),Introducing The Three Degrees,This Little TV Went to Market(Guy's Groovy Grabbag),Fred Sanford, Legal Eagle,and many others. Unfortunately towards the end of the season Redd Foxx was absent due to contract disputes.It was explained that Fred was in St. Louis,and Grady was watching the business for Fred.Although some episodes were funny,Redd Foxx was definately missed. By the following season,Foxx returned with a raise,but the show started to slip in quality.But even mediocre S&S was better than most shows on the air during the era.
