    Amos N Andy was no more offensive in its day as Sanford and Son was during its succesful run - and Sanford got rave reviews. Unfortunately, because of the paranoia of that era's tv executives, most viewers never got a chance to experience the excellence of this series. The only problem with this program was the title. This was truly the "Kingfish" show - featuring one of more unforgettable characters in tv history. Played brilliantly by Tim Moore, Kingfish was Ralph Kramden to Amos' Ed Norton. Kingfish had the schemes and ideas and Amos was his foil. Andy was simply the voice of reason who usually came to the rescue. Add Sapphire to the mix as Kingfish's loyal but skeptical wife, and this seris did nothing worse than display the foibles that could happen in any situation - be it black or white.
