It isn't long before Lamont regrets this move, but it is up to Fred's pal Bubba (Don Bexley) to bring father and son back together. The episode was based on "Homes Fit for Heroes", a 1964 episode of Steptoe and Son, the British series forerunner to Sanford and Son, by creators Ray Galton and Alan Simpson.
