What if The Jeffersons and Sanford and Son had multi crossover episodes?

The Jefferson and Sanford and Son were my all time two T.V. series I watched the most. What if The Jeffersons( aired from January 18, 1975, to July 2, 1985) and Sanford and Son (aired from January 14, 1972, to March 25, 1977, and Sanford that aired from Marh 1980 to January 1981)

What if The Jeffersons and Sanford and Son had multi crossover episodes? I would have loved to watched the interaction between these characters:

1) George Jefferson (the late Sherman Helmsly) and Fred Sanford (the late Redd Fox),

2) Lionel Jefferson (the late Mike Evans) and Lamont Sanford (Demond Wilson)

3) Florence Johnston (Marla Gibbs ) and Aunt Esther Anderson (the late LaWanda Page)

4) Thomas "Tom" Willis (the late Franklin Cover); Harry Bentley ( the late Paul Benedict) ; Ralph the Doorman (Ned Wertimer) and Grady (the late Whitman Mayo); Rollo Lawson (Nathaniel Taylor );

Woodrow Anderson (Raymond Allen)

Is it me or does comedian/actor Mike Epps look like he could be related to Nathaniel Taylor who played Rollo Lawson on Sanford and Son?
