Sledge and Dori are assigned to investigate when 15 Elvis impersonators are murdered within a three-week period. They find that all 15 had two common characteristics: all were recent graduates of "The Famous School of Elvis Impersonators" and all were killed with a gold microphone immediately after winning a local Elvis impersonators' contest. Sledge goes undercover at the school, but his investigation is hindered by the building janitor. He nevertheless enters the next installment of the Elvis impersonators' contest in the hope of emerging victorious and becoming bait for the killer. No attempt is made on Sledge's life after he wins the contest, but an unlikely suspect is spotted in the bar holding a gold microphone when Sledge and Dori decide to go inside for a drink after their brief stake-out.

Did You Know?


Just before going on stage at the Elvis impersonators' contest, Sledge asks Dori about his position in the line-up. She tells him that he will be following a contestant from Dallas and preceding a contestant from Miami. Sledge ponders this and says "Between Dallas and Miami - what a terrible place to be!" The joke is in reference to the positioning of "Sledge Hammer!" with respect to its first-run network airings. The show aired on the ABC network opposite "Dallas" on CBS and "Miami Vice" on NBC. These were two of the highest-rated network shows at the time and this positioning was the proximate reason that "Sledge Hammer!" consistently finished near the very bottom of the television ratings lists despite generally favorable critical reviews and a devoted fan base.
