"Ebenezer Sanford" is the Christmas episode of the 1970s sitcom Sanford and Son. It was originally broadcast during the show's fifth season on December 12, 1975.


As the title suggests, Fred is acting like a Scrooge, rejecting the efforts of family and friends to draw him into the Christmas spirit. Will three spirits who resemble a certain "big dummy" son be able to teach him the usual lesson?


Redd Foxx, a decent crooner in his own right, caps off the episode with his rendition of "The Christmas Song".
