Go Cart And Bono
3 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In Go-Cart Terror,while the CHP officers pursue furniture thieves, Ponch and Jon prepare a go-cart team for competition, while also trying to help one of its misguided members.

On patrol, Ponch and Jon help a girl who fell off her bike. As they see if she's alright, some teenagers ride by on go-carts. One stops to apologize for hitting the bike while the other stops to apologize. After the other go-cart gets away, Ponch returns to find Jon. After the briefing, everyone's wondering if the go-cart driver was a member of the CHP's go-cart team.That afternoon, Ponch takes charge of the go-cart club meeting. As he and Jon leave, Ponch notices Wayne's helmet...the same one the reckless driver was wearing. The next day, on duty, Ponch goes to talk to Wayne but spots him on his go-cart in the street. Wayne ends up making a van splash into a lake so Ponch stops to help. Wayne turns around and comes back to call it in for Ponch. Ponch dives in and pulls the woman out. After everything turns out fine, Wayne admits he just wants his parents to come home. At the go-cart track, Ponch and a fireman challenge each other to a race. Ponch goes off the track and loses. To raise money, the go-cart kids hold a car wash.

Meanwhile,Ponch realizes he saw the thieves leaving the Price Bros store. Later, the "Special Guest Stars" are stealing office equipment. Baricza's the first in pursuit and Bonnie soon joins in.Then,Jon and Ponch join Bonnie. Not far down the highway, Mike's truck loaded with all the office equipment rolls down a hill. He runs off before Ponch and Jon arrive. The next day, Baricza checks out a closed warehouse claiming to be having a sale. After looking in the window, he drives out back and spots the truck. After calling it in, he chases them. Ponch and Jon join in, dodge some thrown furniture, and stop the truck on an unfinished part of the highway.

The episode features Sonny Bono as special guest playing Mike.Also,we see go cart as the sport of the week in addition to catching thieves of the furniture.
