Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Scatman Crothers guest stars as Bow Legs, an old pal of Fred Sanford (Redd Foxx) (it was Bow Legs who introduced Fred to his late wife Elizabeth). At Bow Legs' behest, Fred's pals develop a nightclub act called "The Zanies." A last-minute crisis results in an impromptu song-and-snappy-patter routine performed by Fred and his son Lamont (Demond Wilson). This episode also features a cameo appearance by singer Billy Eckstine.
