Fred Sanford (Redd Foxx) wants a color TV, but his son Lamont (Demond Wilson) spends their available cash on a new car. To convince Lamont to trade in the car for a TV, Fred goes into another of his legendary acts, feigning amnesia. Peter Bonerz, still several months away from his co-star stint on The Bob Newhart Show, is here cast as a doctor. Adapted from "The Colour Problem," a 1970 episode of the British sitcom Steptoe and Son, "TV or Not TV" first aired on March 24, 1972.
