39 years ago today, the final episode of Sanford and Son aired. It ran on the NBC television network from January 14, 1972 to March 25, 1977. It was originally based on the BBC's Steptoe and Son. Known for its edgy racial humor, running gags and catch phrases, the series was adapted by Norman Lear and considered NBC's answer to CBS's All in the Family. Sanford and Son has been hailed as the precursor to many other African American sitcoms. It was a ratings hit throughout its six-season run.
