Synopsis by Hal Erickson
To cover up the fact that he has accidentally broken his son Lamont's precious porcelain connection, Fred (Redd Foxx) claims that their home was burglarized. Naturally, Lamont (Demond Wilson) calls the cops, whereupon Fred makes a tall tale taller by improvising an account of his heroics when confronted by the thieves. Eventually, Lamont learns the truth, and craftily arranges for Fred to be hoist on his own petard. Adapted from "Robbery With Violence," a 1970 episode of the British sitcom Steptoe and Son, "We Were Robbed" originally aired on February 18, 1972.
