Trivia

The cot featured in the holding cell in the Jump Street Chapel, was, on occasion, used by the actors to ensure they would be on-time for work. If an actor had gone out partying the night before, he was known to go to the set, and spend the night on the cot, to ensure he could not get in trouble for being late to work. See more »

Goofs

Throughout the first season Hanson repeatedly says "tail" when his mouth obviously says "ass." This was a post-production change in response to network censorship, who thought the word "ass" was inappropriate. See more »

The Mod Squad of the 80's
14 April 2003 | by SargebriSee all my reviews

This was definitely a quality show. This show was a far cry from what the Fox network eventually became. Many of the scripts dealt with what young people go through on a day to day basis and used a cop show to show it. Issues like date rape, drugs, teen suicide, school violence and incest were all covered in the first two years of this show. When Jump Street premiered, it was the shot heard round the world due to the fact that it was the very first show to air on the Fox network, which at the time was only being broadcast on Sunday nights and it ushered in a whole new era in television. Also, Johnny Depp wasn't the only good thing about this show. Peter DeLuise, Holly Robinson (Peete) and Dustin Nguyen all made this show one of the cult classics of the 1980's.
