Aired: January 14, 1972 - March 25, 1977 (NBC)
Theme Song: Quincy Jones "The Streetbeater"

Reportedly written by Quincy Jones in just 20 minutes, “The Streetbeater” is one hell of a Redd-hot groove, bursting at the seams with an overload of the dirtiest (Sanford & Son is a show set in a junkyard, after all), chunkiest, and funkiest doses of heavy, bad-ass organ and cowbell to ever pop on the boob tube.
