Redd Foxx, was a co-star in Cotton Comes to Harlem (1970). In the film, Foxx played a junk dealer.

Demond Wilson caught the attention of executive producer Bud Yorkin during a guest appearance on All in the Family in 1971, where he played a burglar who broke into Archie Bunker's house.

CBS PASSED ON THE SHOW, AND REGRETTED IT FOR YEARS.

Quincy Jones was skeptical of Sanford and Son, because he had worked with Foxx decades earlier in shows, and recalled not one word out of the comedian's mouth being appropriate for NBC. "I just wrote what he looked like," Jones said about his composition "The Streetbeater," the series' theme song. "It sounds just like him, doesn't it?"

FOXX WORE MAKEUP TO LOOK OLDER.

THE HEAVY SHOES WERE WHAT TRANSFORMED REDD INTO FRED.

FRED SANFORD WAS NAMED AFTER REDD'S BROTHER.

Lamont Sanford was named after Lamont Ousley, one of the two other teenagers who made up the washtub band Foxx formed when he dropped out of high school after just one year.

LAWANDA PAGE WOULD HAVE BEEN FIRED IF IT WASN'T FOR FOXX.



FOXX WALKED OFF THE SHOW DURING SEASON THREE.

For the final six episodes of the third season, Grady was put in charge of the business while Fred Sanford was in St. Louis attending his cousin's funeral because Foxx had walked off the show.

After Sanford and Son ended 1977, NBC tried to keep the party going without Foxx, who left to do a variety show on ABC, and Wilson, who refused to keep the show going due to a salary dispute. In Sanford Arms, Phil Wheeler (Theodore Wilson) moved into Fred and Lamont's house after the two moved to Arizona. Phil and his two teenage children attempted to turn the rooming house next door into a successful hotel.

Sanford(1980-1981) brought back Foxx, but Wilson again refused to reprise his role.

He was replaced in the business by Cal Pettie (Dennis Burkley), an optimistic Texan. NBC canceled it after 19 episodes, burning off the final seven over the summer of 1981.

THE SANFORD AND SON SALVAGE TRUCK WAS PURCHASED FOR $3500.

Foxx collapsed on October 11,1991, during rehearsals for his new sitcom, The Royal Family. "They were rehearsing on the set and clowning around, and Redd was sort of breaking people up when he collapsed," a spokeswoman for the show told The Los Angeles Times. "They all thought he was joking around at first, and then they called the paramedics."

Plot Of "Cottom Comes To Harlem"

Reverend Deke O'Malley (Calvin Lockhart) is selling shares in a Harlem rally for a Back-To Africa movement ship to be called The Black Beauty. During the rally, several masked gunman jump out of a meat truck and steal $87,000 in cash from the back of an armored car. Two Harlem detectives, Gravedigger (Jones Godfrey Cambridge) and "Coffin" Ed Johnson Raymoun St Jacques chase the car and a bale of cotton falls out of the vehicle. Uncle Budd  (Redd Foxx) has found the bale of cotton and sells it for $25 to a junk dealer but buys it back later for $30. There was a reward out for the bale of cotton because the $87,000 was thought to be hidden inside of the bale. After accusing O’Malley for stealing the money and taking him captive, Detectives Jones and Johnson were able to bribe Calhoun (J.D. Cannon), a mob leader, to give them $87,000 after discovering that Uncle Budd had run off with the money to retire in Africa.
