Crazy Like A Fox

Show Summary

Harrison K. Fox was a conservative young attorney trying to develop a successful law practice in San Francisco to support his wife, Cindy, and his young son, Josh. Unfortunately his life was endlessly complicated by his unconventional father Harry, a lovable con artist and private eye who was constantly getting involved in murder cases. Harry was a real character. When he got involved in a dicey case, he would inevitably drag Harrison in with him, sometimes getting free legal advice (he had, after all, paid for Harrison's education), sometimes to get Harrison to take on one of his trouble-prone friends as a client, most often to help with the legwork. That usually meant chasing people, breaking into offices, and getting shot at, just the sort of diversion a conservative attorney enjoys! Harrison's secretary Allison grew used to seeing Harry barge into the office, interrupting important meetings. Despite all this, and regardless of his better judgment, harrison could never turn Harry down. He was, after all, a lovable old coot. In Germany the show is known as Die Fälle des Harry Fox ("Harry Fox's Cases")moreless

  • CBS should have never moved it out of Sunday nights.

    "Crazy Like A Fox" was a terrific show, well-written and acted, which garnered very good ratings in the Sunday evening slot following "Murder, She Wrote." It would have enjoyed a much longer run had CBS not moved it to a different night. Jack Warden and John Rubinstein realistically reversed the traditional conservative father/loose and impulsive son roles, which gave this show a bit of a twist on a somewhat familiar theme. Alas, this isn't the only time one of the major networks engineered a good show's demise by monkeying with its time slot. I still don't know of a DVD release... anyone?moreless
  • Rough-hewn private eye and buttoned-down yuppie son.

    Jack Warden was great in this series. It's like it was the part he was born to play. Sometimes instead of dialogue he would make a grunt which conveyed so much more than words. He would know that the other person was lying or deluded, and the grunt would say it all. I also liked the way he would, let's say, steal a car to chase the bad guys, saying "What could possibly go wrong?" Something always went wrong.

    Jack Warden's son in the series was good looking, and of course a lot younger, but if I had a chance to pick one of the two fictional characters as a romantic interest, it would be Jack Warden. He had that old-fashioned kind of masculinity, and a more intersting persona.

    I loved the show and it would be great to see it again.moreless
