A re-run of many of the gags from the original TV series 'Police Squad'. An Airplane type spoof, this time with the an incompetent lieutenant (Drebin) who always 'gets his man'. Visual gags come thick and fast, and it's impossible to catch them all with one viewing. The plot.. Queen Elizabeth II of England is coming to town, and Vincent Ludwig has plans to assassinate her using a brainwashed baseball player. Written by
The Villain. Even Mother Teresa wanted him dead.

Did You Know?
The conversation between Ludwig and Papschmear about "Sensory Induced Hypnosis" is a direct spoof of a scene in Telefon
(1977), where Charles Bronson
is offered a demonstration of "Drug Induced Hypnosis" See more
When Drebin is singing the national anthem, the American flag behind him is in the wrong position. The Union Jack is to the flag's right. US Flag protocol mandates that no flag should be on the American Flag's right (the viewer's left) when flown at the same height. See more
Tell me, Mr. Papshmir, in all the world, who is the most effective assassin?
Well, I would think ANYONE who manages to conceal his identity as an assassin.
Yes, but there is even a more ideal assassin - one who doesn't KNOW he's an assassin.
Two of the bit part actors in the film are credited as thugs, but way apart. The first actor is credited as Thug #1 and then just below him, the second actor is credited as Thug #27. See more
