The series was translated to Hungarian in the 1970s. The actor who gave his voice to Kojak, László Inke, resembled Telly Savalas so much, that a movie was shot in which he played Kojak (Kojak Budapesten (1980)). While the original series was in color, the Hungarian film was black and white. Also, according to the film's plot, Kojak was born in Hungary, and had been a very clumsy cop before emigrating.

Theo Kojak kicked major ass and made the bald look cool
Theo Kojak was and IS the epitome of cool. He was a top cop, he kicked major criminal ass, he sucked on lollipops to kick his smoking habit, and best of all, he maintained a crome-dome so cool and fashionable, Vin Diesel doesn't even come close! The late, great Telly Savalas brought to life Det. Kojak, and thus this creation was the precursor to all those hip "supercop" TV shows to come, with NASH BRIDGES bearing in mind. Who loves ya, baby? Kojak does.
