Trivia

At the beginning of the pursuit of the black motorcycle this is one of the few times one of the CHP motorcycles is seen to perform a wheelie with the front wheel of Jon's motorcycle coming off the ground. See more »

Goofs

Getraer tells Baker and Poncherello that Herzog is facing 5 years for robbery and 14 years for hit and run. Circa 1982 in California, the penalty for felony robbery was more severe than for traffic offenses such as hit and run. Additionally, the injury to the dancer was not an accident but was an intentional act, so a hit and run (accident) charge would be improper. See more »

Animals Making Bank Robberies
9 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In Trained For Trouble,dogs and chimps are robbing a bank. As they leave, Jon And Ponch chase the animals down an alley and onto a roof. The chimps and dogs are too fast for them though and get away when their owner drives them off in a truck.

Then,a CHP Officer sees a bird steal money bags from a Pervis armored car shipment. Jon And Ponch chase after the bird. When Ponch gets distracted from looking at the bird, he drives off the road and tears his shirt.

Later, on patrol, Ponch and Jon chase after a motorcycle rider with a dog on his back. They call ahead and have a roadblock set up. When Jon and Ponch to the hospital to meet the look-alike, they find the animal man, chase him, and arrest him.

The animals makes bank robberies does not quite get it done in this episode.Also,the comedic part of the story wherein Ponch is mistaken for a Chippendale strip dancer does not generate enough laughs.
