An interesting comic experiment

I have fond memories of this episode. Starsky and Hutch were strangely
largely absent. Instead Huggy teams up with a friend to solve a case.
It's essentially an attempt to create a comic detective pilot. I think
it worked and was very funny as a sort of crude blaxploitation genre
parody. There is good chemistry between Huggy and the Turkey and lots
of interesting comical African American characters. It's a shame it
didn't take off as it had a lot of potential with some further
refinement. Maybe the TV audience just wasn't ready for an inter racial
comic detective duo. One bi product of the pilot not being picked up
was at least Huggy continued in the main Starsky and Hutch series. One
of the greatest comic characters of 70s cop shows.
