Lennie Crooke and George Robinson are inept detectives teamed together to solve crimes. Captain Andrews is their exasperated boss, Sgt. Higgenbottom a smarmy co-worker. Freddy confesses to most of the neighborhood crimes.
Don Adams, best known for playing super agent on Get Smart, may not have had his choices of playing normal characters. He plays the guy who manages a supermarket. First let me state that I have worked at supermarket for 5 1/2 years. The show had potential in the beginning but it was the Syndicated craze and not everything was network standards. It was the age of B Television with syndicated comedies but I remember this show for being one of the few sitcoms ever set in a supermarket which is now the sized of a local convenience store. No, this show wasn't great. I remember Dinah Christie who I always mixed up with Lois Nettleton. You can't blame, Don Adams, he has bills to pay. The cast themselves were generally forgettable. The show never really launched itself with all it's potential. Believe me, there are occasions when the supermarket like mine was the center of attraction. Everybody and anybody in town came and interacted in one. I don't remember customers who make up the wonderful experience of working there and of course, you can't forget the horrible ones.
