Jerry Van Dyke,
This was ( and still is) a funny show. It was removed from the air waves because the NAACP felt is was degrading. The truth is, it was not degrading to Black folks. The NAACP has managed to keep it off the air to this day. It is possible to rent some of these shows at local video stores. If you want to laugh, just rent them. They offer a timeless brand of humor, just as I Love Lucy & The Andy Griffith Show. Sadly, they are banned from modern television. The actors on this show were comedy legends. The people who like to rewrite history love to say that Julia was first TV show with blacks, yadda, yadda, yadda.... It gave everyday, regular work to loads of Black actors, who never had it before or after. Even Jesse Jackson pronounced it as non-racist in the PBS documentary "Amos 'n' Andy: Anatomy of a Controversy"(1986). If Jesse Jackson himself says it is not racist, then what more can be said?
