As a child, I grew up watching Amos 'N Andy shows each week as they were produced. At the time I knew I just liked the antics of "The Kingfish". He was the main star even though the title of the show only depics Andy Brown (occupation unknown) and Amos (the cab driver) as the main characters. The acting troupe were absoutely a perfect combination. Tim Moore's character of The Kingfish was brillant! I remember so many laughs. They were happy laughs, not of racism but just a child seeing a good show. I do not know who owns the rights to the shows now but I have heard that they were removed from being broadcasts again for the wrong reasons. Redd Foxx is more racists than Amos 'N Andy ever were. These shows were "A1" wholesome in my book and should be enjoyed again by the next generation.
