Sight gags and non-sequiturs dominate this spoof of police dramas. The six episodes formed the basis for the very successful "Naked Gun" film franchise.
One of the running gags was the man who was so tall, that his head was never seen on-camera, and whose only role was to simply stand there, and he never actually did anything. His name is Tiny Ron, and he played Al on this show and in The Naked Gun film franchise.

Various: Yes, I know.
The closing credits of each episode would be shown with the cast pretending to "freeze frame" as the credits roll - but coffee being poured would overflow a cup onto a character's shoes, or Norberg would enter the scene not knowing to stand still.
The home video versions of some episodes have changed music in some scenes. For instance, when they sing "Happy Birthday" at a birthday and when 'Leslie Nielsen' sings Judy Garland tunes in the nightclub. Presumably this is due to a music licensing issue.
