Originally broadcast on December 12, 1975 during the show’s fifth season, “Ebenezer Sanford” is a spoof of Charles Dickens’s “A Christmas Carol.”
“And the face of Halloween” is Fred’s rude reply when Esther brings presents to the Sanford house. “Adios, sucker” Esther says as she makes her exit!
Ronnie (Eric Laneuville) needs a job so he can buy Christmas gifts for his parents. So, Fred hires him to do inventory for the miserly sum of $10!
Eric Laneuville returned as Daniel, Esther and Woody’s adopted son. He later appeared on “St. Elsewhere.” Today, he’s an Emmy-winning director!
Demond Wilson as Lamont plays the spirits of Christmas Past, Present and Future — all in wild costumes!
The Spirit of Christmas Past takes Fred to his childhood home in St. Louis, where he sees his mother (Kathryn Jackson) and himself (Marc Copage).
Fred's mother calls him “Fredsie" during the Christmas Past sequence. Ronnie later calls him “Fredsie,” which Lamont mocks.
The Spirit of Christmas Present shows Fred Esther’s party, where she says she didn’t invite Fred "because he doesn’t have the Christmas spirit.”
Fred gives Lamont’s presents to Ronnie’s parents, even though they’re monogrammed. The initials "LS" stand for “Love Somebody,” Fred tells them!
Redd Foxx sings “The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire)” accompanied by jazz guitarist Herb Ellis (who plays Esther’s landlord).
