The creators of the movie Airplane! brought their bent
humor to television in this short-lived series. The setting
was a "large American city," where straight-faced Detective
Frank Drebin and his loyal Captain Hocken investigated
puzzling cases filled with sight-gags and non sequitors. In
the opening episode they arrived at the scene of a murder
to find a chalk outline of the body with Egyptian hieroglyphics
alongside, the police photographer taking a picture of a grinning
policeman posing with the corpse, and a witness who had a hard
time talking through her braces. Parked nearby was a police
car, with big letters on the hood reading POLICE CAR.
