Sanford And Son was and still is a pretty popular sitcom about a junk dealer and his son trying to make ends meet and get along. It was based on a UK sitcom called Steptoe And Son. Did you know that it also had a bunch of spin-offs? One I hadn’t heard of until this article is Sanford Arms, an attempt to continue the series despite neither of the title characters returning. It didn’t do well.

    I remember the original Sanford and Son series and even the one from 1980. But this was my first time seeing something about Sanford Arms. One thing I will say about 1970s television….many shows with African Americans as actors and actresses did come about during the 1970s. During the 1960s, there were a lot less African Americans on television shows. So in some ways, the 1970s was quite revolutionary in terms of television series character demographics.

    After looking at your Sanford Arms linked article last night, I started looking up more information on Sanford and Son and even was reminded of Red Foxx’s very last television series from 1991 (the one where he died of a heart attack on the set). Before I knew it, I had spent over an hour looking up information on Sanford and Son and Red Foxx related topics. Needless to say, I consequently didn’t have time to get to the Lone Ranger cartoon as planned (will do that on Thursday during the college basketball games that I don’t watch). That’s what’s great about BWspotlight…..this site reminds me of topics I haven’t thought about it in a while and spurs me to learn more about them. There is a definite educational value (or is it edutaining value?) with BWspotlight for sure!
