Storyline

Tony Baretta is a street-smart, maverick undercover cop with the NYPD, who won't hesitate for a second to toss the rule book out the window if it stands between himself and taking some bad guy off the street. His unconventional methods often land him in hot water with his boss (Inspector Schiller, later Lt. Brubaker), but as long as Baretta was getting the job done, there wasn't much they could do. Ex-cop Billy and Huggy Bear-wannabe Rooster were Baretta's main men on the street, and Fred was his pet cockatoo. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@soltec.net>

As with most police shows that were on during the 70's this was one of those that threw police procedure out the window and the main character was a maverick police detective who went by his own set of rules. I think the most memorable thing about this show was the bird and every episode followed the same formula. Too bad though. Robert Blake was a great actor that rose above his child actor days to have a great career.
