Sanford & Son (1972-1977 TV Series):

Leroy-  Played by Leroy "Sloppy" Daniels.  He was one of Fred's fat buddies that you only saw in the second and third seasons of the shows.  I always liked it when Fred, Bubba, Leroy, and Skillet partied down.  He's a very memorable character, but not in as many episodes as you would think.  Leroy was only in five shows.  The characters of Leroy and Skillet were later written out of the series and as Fred explained to Lamont, they didn't want to hang around him because he was too cantankerous.
