Donna Pops The Question was the 95th overall episode of Sanford and Son. Also the eighth episode of Season Five, it first aired November 7, 1975.
After receiving a proposal from another man, Donna gives Fred one final chance to marry her.
Donna, tired of being the longtime erstwhile fiancée of Fred poses the question of marriage to Fred. When Fred again balks at the thought of matrimony, Donna issues an ultimatum: Either Fred marries her immediately, or she'll accept the proposal of another man which happens to be Judge Judge Mel Brooks who appeared in the Season 3 episode "Fred Sanford, Legal Eagle". Can it be that Fred's hesitancy is due to reverence for his late wife Elizabeth, or is he merely suffering from that common malady known as "cold feet"?
Note: Arthur Adams makes a second and final guest appearance as Judge Mel Brooks, a role he played in the Season 3 episode "Fred Sanford, Legal Eagle". Elma V. Jackson appears as Mrs. Harris, Donna's mother.
