Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Budding artist J.J. (Jimmie Walker) paints a portrait of a black Jesus, causing all sorts of controversy in the Evans household. (Next-door neighbor Willona [Ja'net DuBois] thinks that the portrait more closely resembles Ned the Wino -- who, indeed, was J.J.'s model.) But when the family begins to enjoy a streak of incredibly good luck, it appears as though the painting is somehow responsible. All this causes another crisis when a gallery offers to showcase J.J.'s painting in an exhibit. Series creator Eric Monte appears in a cameo role.
