Jeffersons-35 Years Ago

Thirty-five years ago on January 18, 1975, George Jefferson a successful businessman, millionaire and owner of seven dry cleaning stores came into our lives. We watched on CBS as George and his wife moved to their ritzy penthouse apartment on Manhattan’s fashionable East Side. As the opening theme song “We’re Movin’ on Up” showed the moving van in front of “their de-luxe apartment in the sky." Did you know that the Jeffersons was a spin-off of All In The Family and lasted eleven seasons? It is the longest-running comedy with a predominantly African American cast in the history of American television. We have the first seasons of the Jeffersons available on DVD for seven-day checkout to relive your nights from 35 years ago.
