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.
