Synopsis by Hal Erickson
In the market for a color television, Lamont (Demond Wilson) wants to purchase a new TV on credit, but Fred (Redd Foxx) intends to spend no more than 50 dollars on a used set. Luck of luck, Fred finds just such a bargain at Guy's Groovy Grab Bag. Alas, Fred has unwittingly purchased a stolen TV -- and it was stolen from his pal Grady (Whitman Mayo, in his first series appearance). This Sanford and Son episode was loosely based on "The Colour Problem," a 1970 episode of the series' prototype Steptoe and Son.
