The exploits of milk-swilling, geriatric private eye Barnaby Jones.
After production of "Barnaby Jones" completed, producers were considering a TV-movie crossover between this show and Buddy Ebsen's previous show The Beverly Hillbillies (1962). The storyline would open with Millionaire Jed Clampett (played by Ebsen) being kidnapped, and Barnaby Jones (also played by Ebsen) hired to locate him. That ATV-movie was never produced, although a similar storyline was created for the 1993 big screen version of "Hillbillies", with Ebsen returning in a cameo as Barnaby Jones, hired by Miss Hathaway to find the missing Granny.
The police cars used in the series are not often of the type used in the Los Angeles Police Department during the 1970s.
