The Lucky Streak
Fred Sings The Blues
Funny, You Don't Look It was the 134th overall episode of Sanford and Son. Also the 23rd episode of Season Six, it first aired on NBC-TV on March 11, 1977.
Inspired by Alex Haley's "Roots," Fred orders a family crest and genealogical scroll that states he's African royalty and a descendant of the Jewish Ethiopian Falashas.
Evidently inspired by the TV miniseries Roots, Fred is convinced that he is a descendant of none other than King Solomon. And how did this "revelation" come about? Well, it seems that Fred shelled out big money (a whole 25 dollars) to a family-tracing service -- who told him that he is the ancestor of a famous Jewish historical figure.
