Although it is stated numerous times that Theo Kojak is of Greek heritage, the name "Kojak" is actually of Polish origin. Kojak's heritage was changed to Greek in order to match Telly Savalas's Greek heritage. See more »
My favorite show of all time. Kojak(1973) was a detective show with a sense of humor. Was the best of all the Police shows during the 1970s because of the great acting and interesting guest stars. Telly Savalas gives the character of Kojak a witty toughness that many later Police shows have copied since. Telly Savalas was an actor who made the films that he was in much entertaining to watch. The best episodes were the ones with great guest stars.
