Trivia:
The car used for Reed and Malloy's close ups was towed by camera car. The car's windshield showed reflections of the camera and crew, so the car's windshield was removed. However, this led to the wind blowing Reed and Malloy's hair, so a shield was created to enclose the camera and front of the car.See more »

FAQ

Was there ever any Adam-12 reunion movie for television?
What is a "cedar woman"? Or is that what they're saying? Throughout the series, the dispatcher regularly tells the officers that a "cedar woman" has reported a crime. Or is that what she's saying? If so, what is a "cedar woman"? If I'm not hearing it right, what is she saying, and what does it mean?

Excellent show!, 31 October 2001
Author: Drewboy-2

This is a wonderful show that I really enjoyed as a child! The very first episode, originally airing on 9/21/68, was a classic. Pete Malloy is disgruntled and about to quit the force after his patrol partner's death in a warehouse shooting, and is assigned rookie cop Jim Reed, age 23 and fresh out of the LA police academy. That first day, the officers break up a fight between two men over a lady on the street, then they chase two robbers in a big 1959 Buick four-door that crashes and burns in a canal confluence - this is a breathtaking sequence - that Buick is HUGE with the big canted fins! Malloy finishes his day by giving mouth to mouth to an infant who had stopped breathing. All in a day's work! A portent of good things to come over the next seven years. Watch it, get videos - you won't regret it!
