Sam McCloud is a Marshal from a Taos, New Mexico, who takes a temporary assignment in the New York City Police. His keen sense of detail and detecting subtle clues, learned from his experience, enable him to nab unsuspecting criminals despite his unbelieving boss.
The weekly adventures of Frank Cannon, an overweight, balding ex-cop with a deep voice and expensive tastes in culinary pleasures, who becomes a high-priced private investigator. Since Cannon's girth didn't allow for many fist-fights and gun battles (although there were many), the series substituted car chases and high production values in their place. Written by

According to the book "Creating the Filmation Generation", Lou Scheimer was interested in producing an animated spin-off called "Young Cannon" in the 1972-1973 season. They got the rights from Quinn Martin, but Fred Silverman at CBS didn't buy it See more »
Cannon frequently uses his mobile phone in his car but exterior shots of the car never shows the necessary antenna. See more »
Remembering the vast numbers of shows out there in TV Land like this one that COULD be shown, it irritates me no end how of the 5 million channels out there, not one of them shows shows like this! (Not even TV Land hmmmm...what potential wasted there!).Instead they all seem to want to be the same station doing the same stuff. Over and over with the same stuff! At any rate I think it would be great and that there'd be a steady niche audience for a station (or several stations) that switched up constantly and aired Loss Leaders like Cannon. There are SO MANY to pick from. Why oh why won't they take a chance and show them? Well I'm sure it's that they don't believe they can make a safe buck that way.
