I looked at the running times on the edited Sanford and Son episodes on DVD: —"Blood is Thicker than Junk" (S2) is edited on both. The episode starts (on tape) with Fred walking in singing "St. Louis Blues." I will check the DVD. —"This Little TV Went to Market" (S3) is edited on both. The episode on tape starts with the TV repairaman saying "Well, I've got good news and I've got bad news." I don't own the S3 DVDs yet. —"A Matter of Silence" (S6) is edited on the DVD but runs 24:46 on the VHS tape. Now who at Sony will listen?
