"The Jeffersons" was a television sitcom that aired from 1975 to 1985, for a total of 11 seasons and 253  episodes. The characters of George and Louise Jefferson originally appeared on "All in the Family." "The Jeffersons" is an "All in the Family" spinoff. 

George owned a successful dry cleaning business that enabled him to move his family from the "All in the Family" neighborhood of Queens to a high-rise apartment in the sky of Manhattan. The show is hailed as one of the longest running sitcoms with an African-American cast, and although the show did remain true to its comedic roots, it also responsibly tackled the serious issues of racism, alcoholism, gun control and suicide. The show was also notable for featuring the first interracial television couple, the Jeffersons' neighbors, Tom and Helen Willis, played by Franklin Cover and Roxie Roker, respectively. George and Louise Jefferson were played by acting greats Sherman Hemsley and Isabel Sanford.
