Sanford & Son (1972)

Whitman Mayo as "Grady Wilson"

Junk dealer Fred Sanford runs roughshod over his son and partner, Lamont, in a groundbreaking sitcom. Fred's moneymaking schemes routinely backfire, and he does just about anything to get out of working -- up to and including faking a heart attack. He's rude, sarcastic, outspoken, overtly prejudiced, and pretty darn nasty to his friends and family.

Golden Globe (1975) Nominated Best Performance by An Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television
