All in the Family: Sammy's Visit (track #5 on Stay Tuned: Television's Most Unforgettable Moments DVD (Garner Creative Concepts, 2002)). [Category: Outtakes & Obscurities]

The end of Sammy Davis, Jr.'s visit to the Bunker household is certainly an unforgettable moment. I won't give it away––it will probably make you laugh out loud if you haven't seen it before. Norman Lear and Sally Struthers provide some mildly interesting background to this clip. Again, the whole episode would have been better, but this moment does deserve some sort of enshrinement.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ****. Weirdness: **. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.
