Strange Bedfellows was the 80th overall episode of Sanford and Son. Also the 18th episode of Season Four, it first aired January 31, 1975.
In this spoof of "Let's Make a Deal," Fred, Grady and Bubba appear as contestants on "Wheel and Deal," hoping to win a new car as a birthday present for Lamont.
In this spoof of the popular daytime giveaway game show Let's Make a Deal, Fred and his pals Grady and Bubba attend a taping of the TV game-fest "Wheel and Deal." Dressed respectively as a fairy, a gorilla, and a Viking, our three heroes rack up a number of impressive and expensive prizes -- at least until Fred decides to gamble it all on "What's behind Curtain Number Two." What happens next profoundly affects the outcome of Lamont's (Demond Wilson) birthday party. John Barbour makes a guest appearance as the Game Show host.
