Storyline

After Starsky and Hutch successfully chase down a transvestite shoplifter violating his parole, they get a tip from a Huggy Bear about a dead body. The flamboyant jive-talker got his information from Joe Collandra, formerly a stage psychic, now the owner of a diner, who was just showing off and now regrets it. Collandra's previous stint at using his paranormal abilities to help the police resulted in misery for the beleaguered ex-showman, and now he wants nothing to do with psychic detection. The trouble is, his vision of a dead body, in a place that is very like an amusement park, proves to be true. And now the skeptical Starsky and the believing Hutch need his help in a crime the dead man was involved with: the kidnapping of a schoolgirl, the daughter of a wealthy football team owner.
