We all love a good spin off show , to us it is a way to see more about that character , to see more funny things happen to them, but what if a show makes a spin off and has NO main characters or actors from the original show? well this is what happened with the very very short lived...
Sanford Arms was a spin off of sorts from Sanford and Son , But Fred sanford nor Lamont were in the show.. Red Fox ( fred Sanford) left sanford and son after 6 seasons to do a variety show for ABC TV and that left Lamont to star in the lead role for this show. The network gave Desmond Wilson ( lamont Sanford) a contract with a salary that he felt was way to low. Desmond Wilson was angry with this figure denied to do the show, The Producers moved on and brought in a new Main charter his name was Phil Weeler a widower and old Army buddy of Fred Sanford's. It was explained that Fred and Lamont had moved to Arizona and they sold their property to Phil. Phil now lived in the Sanfords' old house with his two teenage children, Angie and Nat. At the end of Sanford and Son they bought the rooming house next door so that was included in the property and now it was turned into a hotel.
Only a few secondary characters made appearances on the spin off from the main show , Grady, Bubba and Aunt Esther were on board to help with the hotel.. But this showed didn't have enough help with the ratings and was canceled after only 4 episodes..
