Trivia

Goofs

After the robbery via bird takes place, the dispatcher gives the "suspect" description and Jon picks up his radio mike and says "What?" at which point the dispatcher repeats the description. Radio procedure would be for Jon to call in using his designator "7 Mary 3" and ask the dispatcher to repeat the transmission. As a seasoned officer, Jon would use this procedure as a matter of routine, which he does in the following scene. Additionally, even though Turner sees the crime, he is never heard on the radio.

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.
