The Lucky Streak was the 133rd overall episode of Sanford and Son. Also the 22nd episode of Season Six, it first aired on NBC-TV on March 4, 1977.

Episode synopsisEdit

Fred and Lamont need to raise $4,000 by Friday or lose the Sanford Arms. Fred plans to parlay his $500 savings into the needed amount by playing poker, betting on horses and letting it ride in Las Vegas.

Episode summaryEdit

The Sanford Arms is threatened with foreclosure due to nonpayment of rent. Fred and Lamont both decide that the best way to avoid this contingency is to buy the rooming house outright -- but for that, they need 4,000 dollars immediately. Throwing caution to the winds, Fred turns to gambling to get rich quick, whereupon a streak of incredibly good luck convinces the Sanfords that their dreams might actually come true (for once).

Note: Sonny Jim Gaines appears as "Bottom Of The Deck" Dan. Skip Cunningham makes an appearance as Marvin, [ and Prince C. Spencer appears as a messenger.
