Trivia

Real-life NYPD squad cars of the period had white roofs and trunk lids and green bodies, with all or parts of the fenders painted black. The cars on the black and white TV series seem to follow this striping design except for the black fenders. See more »

Goofs

In some versions of the opening credits, most notably the version in which Toody and Muldoon are playing checkers in the car, the bubble light atop the squad car jumps when the car shakes. It should be bolted in place. See more »

Often Ignored Classic...
30 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Car 54 Where are You? is one of the funniest TV series to ever appear on television. The chemistry between the dim-witted but affable Gunther Toody (played by Borscht-belt stand-up comic Joe E. Ross ) and his cultured but painfully shy bachelor partner Francis Muldoon ( played by the pre-Munsters Fred Gwynne ) rings true in every episode. You definitely get the feeling watching this comedy that these two cops are closer than brothers. What really makes this series outstanding though is the superior writing and the supporting actors. Wally Cox, Nipsey Russell, Godfrey Cambridge, Charlotte Rae, Ossie Davis, Jake LaMotta ( the subject of Scorcese's 'Raging Bull' ), Rocky Graziano, Sugar Ray Robinson, Jack Gilford..these are just a handful of some of the well-known actors and personalities you'll see when watching this series.

I recently found the entire series for sale on the internet and I have thoroughly enjoyed it.

"Oooo.....Oooo!!"
