Twitter loves the return of classic TV star in 'The Jeffersons' special

ABC turned back the clock Wednesday night with live reenactments of classic episodes of "All in the Family" and "The Jeffersons" in a special honoring legendary producer Norman Lear. The all-star cast included Woody Harrelson and Marisa Tomei as Archie and Edith Bunker, Jamie Foxx and Wanda Sykes as George and Louise Jefferson, and Kerry Washington, Ellie Kemper, Will Ferrell, Anthony Anderson, and Ike Barinholtz. But there was one all-time fan favorite that couldn’t are replaced: Marla Gibbs. That’s right! Gibbs reprised her role as the Jefferson’s wisecracking maid Florence Johnston, and it’s safe that even after all these years, Gibbs has still got it.
