Synopsis by Hal Erickson
As a surprise for Fred (Redd Foxx), who is about to celebrate his 40th year in the business, Lamont (Demond Wilson) and Aunt Esther (Lawanda Page) arrange to upholster all his furniture. This of course requires the removal of the furniture without informing Fred. Upon returning to an empty living room, Fred assumes he's been robbed and summons the police -- and his insurance company. Evidently slated to air on December 10, 1976, as the 122nd episode of Sanford and Son, this installment was moved up to January 7, 1977.
