On Jan. 11, 1975, Edith Bunker said a tearful goodbye to her neighbor and friend Louise Jefferson on All in the Family. She and her husband George, were “movin’ on up to the East Side, to a deluxe apartment in the sky!” For the next 11 seasons, The Jeffersons lived among a kaleidoscope of characters, including a sycophantic doorman named Ralph, a bizarre British neighbor named Bentley, and the Willises — TV’s first married couple in which one character was black and one was white.Like All in the Family, The Jeffersons had a bigoted, opinionated loud-mouth at its center: George Jefferson who was constantly putting his foot in his mouth. The show tackled many serious issues, Although comedy was the key element of its success, the show tackled many serious issues from George’s social climbing to Louise’s relationship with her mother-in-law — and Florence’s never ending battles with George. In its final season, CBS pulled the plug on The Jeffersons without giving the show an official finale. However, The Jeffersons is a masterpiece and it remains a landmark in the classic TV landscape.

What is Vintage?

Vintage-Visuals: Shows from the beginning of time to the late 90s. 

There has been some complaints about this blog not being ‘vintage’ enough because we sometimes post stuff from the 90s. I am just going to leave here some definitions of vintage and allow you followers to do with this information as you will. Debate if you see fit even, just know we are not going to stop posting stuff from the 90s. As you can see, there is no specific definition/time period mentioned [Unfollow if you feel this blog does not meet your vintage needs]

Origin of Vintage:

Middle English, probably alteration of vendage, from Anglo-French vendage, vendenge, from Latin vindemia grape-gathering, vintage, from vinum wine, grapes + demere to take off, from de- + emere to take. First Known Use: 15th century
