A nouveau riche, African-American family who move into a luxury apartment building develop close, if occasionally fractious, relationships with other tenants.
Franklin Cover (Tom Willis) was starring as one of the villainous, sociopathic members of The Men's Association in The Stepford Wives (1975) when this show started its first season.
This here is the living area, where we does our living, and this is the dining area, where we does our dining, and this is the kitchen area...
Louise Jefferson: Where we does our kitchening.
Numerous times on and off throughout the course of the series, people make a left when they leave through the exit of the Jeffersons' apartment. The layout of the hallway has Harry Bentley's apartment at the end about a couple feet away at corner on the left side of the Jeffersons' apartment. So it means logically they are just walking right into the door of Bentley's apartment instead of going straight across to the elevator.
Series creators Don Nicholl, Michael Ross, and Bernard West are listed as "Nicholl Ross West" during the show's closing credits on numerous episodes.
Syndicated reruns in the US are cut by 2 to 3 minutes. One particularly bad cut is of a key sequence in the first episode: after Helen and Tom leave George's apartment after being insulted, they are talking in the hallway, and the scene ends with them kissing. This was a controversial scene back in 1975, but its editing was so that stations and cable networks airing the show could fit in more commercials.
