Didn't last long
18 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I recall a major gag of the first episode was that someone was pressing a remote garage door opener and it caused Yoyo to spin head-to-toe in mid-air. Another time, he couldn't enter a building because the sensor of an automatic door caused him to turn and walk in the opposite direction.

The show received quite a bit of public attention (or at least its catchy name did) but was obviously quickly forgotten. On an episode of the TV series "Maude", a game show host (Conrad Janis) complained that he barely missed getting the lead role in "Holmes and Yoyo".

The following year, ABC attempted "Future Cop" - a dramatic series about a cop (Ernest Borgnine) with a robot partner.
