Trivia

For the black-and-white location shots, the green parts of the normally black, white, and green patrol cars were painted red so as not to confuse the local populace. 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 »

Hey! Cops really are human!
15 September 2004 | by (Willow Grove, PA) – See all my reviews

This is the only police show I remember from those earlier days that shows members of a professional police force in such a light hearted way. As a retired cop myself, I know it was obviously not to be taken seriously of course. In my opinion, a lot of things on that show, though not all, could happen in real life. This is especially true when the cops are off duty and get into situations which include their personal life. Even a lot of the on duty antics are not out of touch with reality, such as when the guys are alone in the locker room. It truly shows law enforcement in a relaxing, humorous way. Cops really are human!
