Sergeant Gork was the 110th overall episode of Sanford and Son. Also the 22nd episode of Season Five, it first aired on NBC-TV on March 5, 1976.
Fred regales young Roger with tall tales of his World War II exploits that draw more from the late movie than the history books.
Hoping to impress his future grandson Roger (Edward Crawford), Fred (Redd Foxx) weaves an incredible tale of his "heroic" exploits during WWII. Casting himself as the Patton-like "Major Fred G. Sanford," Fred concocts an unbelievable account based on every war movie cliché ever minted, culminating in a top-secret mission to sabotage a Nazi guided-missile plant. Naturally, Fred's contemporary cronies appear in his fabrications, among them "Lieutenant Lamont," "Fingers Rollo," and "Bubbaface Bexley."
Note: Frank Nelson appears as a U.S. Army soldier. Fritzi Burr appears as Helga a German masterspy, Kenneth Menard appears as a customer, Pat Morita appears as Japanese Colonel Hiakowa, Milton Frome appears as a Nazi officer and voicer, and Martin Kosleck makes an appearance as a Nazi General.
