The Redd Foxx Show

Show Summary

What happens when you take the hilarious comedy of Redd Foxx, and give it an "80's twist"? You get The Redd Foxx Show, a short-lived sitcom which aired on ABC in 1986. The Redd Foxx Show follows the life of Al Hughes (Redd Foxx), a newsstand owner who adopts a "street-wise" teenager named Toni (Pamela Segall). Along with Al is Diana (Rosanna DeSoto), who works with Al in the newsstand, and Jim-Jam (Nathaniel Taylor, Teddy Wilson), who also owns a newsstand of his own. Everything seems to be going fine for Al, but as the show went on, Toni "disappeared", and in came his ex-wife Felicia (Beverly Todd) and his son, Byron (Sinbad). Unfortunately, the show lasted only 4 months. Theme Song Lyrics Written and Performed by: Kool & The Gang On the street...the heart of the city. Life sometimes...ain't so pretty. You're on your own...but you're never alone, no no. (In the city) You must be strong (In the heart of the city). You're not alone, no no no no (In the heart of the city). Someone there... (ooh) with a heart of gold (ooh ooh) yeah. (In the city, there's a heart of gold) (In the heart of the city) (In the heart...ooh ooh ooh ooh oooh)moreless

  • red foxx was a genius

    it is too bad he passed away. this show was hilarious. della reece and red foxx were a match made in heaven. red foxx was in my opinion the greatest african american comic of all time. i used to listen to his stand up on old vinyl records. he was ahead of his time and were it not for him, there would have never been a richard pryor, eddie murphy, or even bill cosby.moreless
