Kookie takes over
18 February 2017 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This 77 Sunset Strip episode leans to the comic more than most of them I've seen. Edd Byrnes actually takes the lead in this one when he finds runaway Sherry Jackson who while stowing away in the back seat of a gangster's car may have overheard a confession to murder.

The two stars Efrem Zimbalist and Roger Smith are thinking Jackson might just be a runaway heiress from San Francisco and they have to deal with a most humorless man Alexander Campbell. They also have to deal with King Donovan another private eye who likes to tail people and move in on their action.

When both Bailey and Spencer get sidelined and I won't say how, Kookie takes over. And it turns out the girl is the key to a case the LAPD is working on.

Will Hutchins from Sugarfoot makes a guest appearance getting a chance to plug his own Warner Brothers show.

This one has more than a few laughs.
