Trivia

The first Coyote was built from a Manta Montage kit car. The second, used later in the series, was built from a DeLorean DMC-12. Reportedly the car was changed because the two men ( who both stood six feet tall ) had a hard time getting in and out of, as well as sitting in, the kit car. See more »

Goofs

In the start credits, when the Coyote jumps over and hits the roof of another car, the back right wheel has broken and sitting almost at right angles. When it lands it is fine again. See more »

User Reviews

Wow this show was great!
24 September 1999 | by culwinSee all my reviews

Along the same lines of wacky 80s shows like A-team and Dukes of Hazard, this was one of the funnest (albeit not very realistic) shows of the decade! Comedy and action ensue as retired Judge Hardcastle (Brian Keith) and semi-retired convict Mccormick (Daniel Hugh-Kelly) solve cases in the same buddy style as 48 Hours and Lethal Weapon. This show is great for both kids and adults; there is some violence, but it is unrealistic violence, such as car explosions. I don't think anyone ever gets shot or killed. They just don't make great shows like this anymore!
