California Crude was the 115th overall episode of Sanford and Son. Also the fourth episode of Season Six, it first aired on NBC-TV on October 8, 1976.
While Fred and Lamont are digging a garden, oil is discovered underground at the junk yard. Fred sees millions but before any money can be paid it must first be tested.
While cultivating their backyard garden, Fred and Lamont apparently strike oil. Their unexpected windfall attracts the attention of an Arabian oil expert named Aram (Ross Martin). Naturally anticipating a huge financial bonanza, Fred begins spending money even before he gets it -- and then doesn't get it.
