GLOUCESTER CITY, NJ (CNBNewsnet)(October 26, 2022)--For one reason or another, there is less laughter today. Back in the day, people didn't take themselves so seriously. Some politicians from both sides of the aisle were friends with different ideas on how the world should spin. Norman Lear, an award-winning television producer who was a Liberal, came up with several award-winning popular shows that
dealt with the social and political issues of the day. One such show was All in the Family. It got many of its laughs by playing on Archie's bigotry. However, the dynamic tension between Archie and his liberal son-in-law, Mike, provided an ongoing political and social sounding board for various topics. Archie appears in all but seven episodes of the series.
And then there was Sanford and Son an American sitcom television series that ran on the NBC television network from January 14, 1972, to March 25, 1977. It was based on the British sitcom Steptoe and Son, which initially aired on BBC One in the United Kingdom from 1962 to 1974. It was known for its edgy racial humor, and catchphrases, the series was adapted by Norman Lear
This brings us to the video clip below pieced together by C3PMeme. He used some clips from the Sanford and Son show and replaced the character's heads with current politicians of today. Very ingenious and very funny. Thank you to Bonnie Flegher, GHS alum Class of '62 for sending it to us.
