"HAMMERED: The Best of Sledge" (Laserdisc) - Prepare yourself for four crime stories that pack more punch than Sledge Hammer's trusty Magnum. And loaded with more misadventure than there is air between Sledge's ears. Our hero find himself up against the likes of the infamous Elvis impersonator serial killer, a powerful Mafioso Don, the sex-starved Elizabeth, and a violent revolutionary. Armed only with a Magnum, grenades, several Uzi machine-guns, and a bazooka, our hero singlehandedly makes the streets safe again for law-abiding citizens.Written by
Episode 7, "All Shook Up", featured a sarcastic jab towards the series' lead-in at the time, Mr. Belvedere (1985), and caused a subsequent feud between the two shows. This bad blood carried over to The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson (1962), where "Mr. Belvedere" star Bob Uecker made a wisecrack about "Sledge Hammer" while guesting. This would lead Spencer to hurl an even more vicious insult at "Belvedere" in a later episode. See more »

Is that a silencer?
No, it's not a silencer. This little doodad is my own invention. I call it a loudener.

Before the first episode of the second season was shown, this "disclaimer" appeared: The following season of Sledge Hammer! takes place five years before that nuclear explosion. Thank you. See more »
DVD release omits the laugh track heard on the original broadcasts. See more »
I laughed my ass off watching this show.!!! David Rasche had a ball spoofing Dirty Harry. This show sort of reminded me of Police Squad. They cancelled it because it was ahead of its time and people were too slow to catch all of the gags in it. Anne Marie Martin was wonderful as Sledge's partner and the chemistry between the two was irresistable. I have so many fond memories of this show and I only wish they would put it back in syndication.
