The Piano Movers was the fourteenth episode of Sanford and Son. Also the final episode of the series' first season, it premiered April 14, 1972. The episode Based on "The Piano" by Ray Galton and Alan Simpson.


It's putting the match to the powder keg when rough and tumble Fred and Lamont are engaged to remove a piano from the lavish Beverly Hills apartment of a cultured antiques collector (Lester Fletcher). Lamont is dedicated to the getting the job done, but Fred spends most of his time snooping around the man's apartment and making wisecracks about the possibility that he might be a homosexual. The man, who keeps walking in and out of the apartment, takes pity on Fred who, from his point of view, seems to be doing all the work. Finally, when the piano becomes wedged in the front door, and a policeman (Rick Hurst) alerts the Sanfords that they have to move the truck which was parked in a no-parking zone, Lamont gets fed up with the man's negative attitude and decides to leave it there.
