It Was a Thing on TV Twin Pack (Episodes #93 & 94): Into The Sanfordverse Parts 1 & 2

This week on It Was a Thing on TV is the big one Elizabeth!

Over these next two episodes, we will explore the three spinoffs of Sanford and Son, as well as the show which caused Sanford and Son to end. In part one, we look at the first spinoff, Grady, as well as the show which effectively killed the mothership, The Redd Foxx Comedy Hour.

In part two, we have two more visits in the Sanford and Son family–the very short-lived series which replaced the parent show, titled Sanford Arms, and an early 80s attempt to revive the franchise in Sanford.
