Among the changes made for this television version was to make the characters more middle class. The Fresh Air Taxi Company was changed from the old rundown model T to a later model car with Amos's uniform and office being neat and tidy and always presented as professional. See more »

When I was a kid, I loved to watch Amos 'n Andy on my local independent television station. It was preceded by The Three Stooges Comedy Hour. Then Amos 'n Andy was canceled because the NAACP decided for me that I would think all black people are like the characters on the show. But I didn't believe that anymore than I thought all white people are like the Three Stooges. So, I could no longer watch one of the funniest comedy shows in television history. I also loved the beautiful theme song. It sounds very much like "Palermo." Anyone know the story of this music?
