Nick Small and Chip Frye were a private-eye team with a twist. Frye had the ability to shrink to six inches in height, which gave him a slight advantage in investigating cases. One disadvantage was that Chip wasn't always able to control his shrinking, which made for some embarrassing--and dangerous--circumstances. Written by

This TV series was about the exploits of two seedy detectives: Nick Small (Darren McGavin) and his partner Chip Frye (Jack Blessing). Frye had the superpower to shrink down to 6 inches in height, due to a freak lab accident-- sometimes this shrinking ability helped when he was working on his cases, sometimes not. This pair of Private Eyes investigated pollutants for a nature-loving client. The series appeared on CBS, from March 7, 1983 - June 15, 1983. There were 6 episodes-- 1) Pilot episode 2) "The Case of the Concerned Husband" 3) "The Case of the Street of Silence" 4) "Schlockty Too" 5) "Endangered Detectives" 6) "Fiddler on the Hoof"
One New York reviewer wrote: "Albert Salmi was the guest star in episode #5 of 'Small & Frye'. Albert was easily the most enjoyable highlight of this short-lived TV series, which featured his real-life pal Darren McGavin."
