NBC (ended 1977)




  • Season 2 Episode 9: Women

  • In the beginning of the show the boys respond to a truck turned over with electrical lines on it. Johnny and Roy must use the jaws of life to get the driver out. You see Roy wearing gloves as he is about to start the jaws and then in the next frame he is not wearing gloves and no gloves are in sight.

  • Season 2 Episode 7: Fuzz Lady

  • Goof:  At the end of the show when they lower the kid from the crane, Cap says "Alright, let's get him in the stokes and get him out of here as fast as we can.", when they actually put him on a stretcher that is waiting there.

  • BLOOPER: The ambulance that picks up the mugger in the park is a suburban style. It is still a suburban style when it backs in at Rampart, but as the squad backs in next to it, suddenly it changes to a box style.

  • Season 2 Episode 6: Saddled

  • Kelly Troup, daughter of series stars Bobby Troup and Julie London, appears as one of the injured children on the overturned school bus.  This was her one and only acting credit.  Her half sister, Ronne Troup, appears as the young woman who was injured at the diner and treated by Dr. Early.

  • Season 2 Episode 5: Peace Pipe

  • Goof: After the scaffolding/sniper incident as the whole company is leaving the scene, the dispatcher asks the captain for their status. He tells the dispatcher that both the engine and the squad are available. At the very least one of the paramedics still has to ride back with the victim to Rampart while the other paramedic follows in the squad. They wouldn't be available for however long it took to get the victim back to Rampart and turned over to the doctors.

  • When seen from behind, the drunk's head is bandaged, but when seen from the front, it is not.

    When Johnny puts the canvas up for cover on the scaffold, the sniper shoots maybe twice more in the scene because the police are already on the other roof, yet later, Chet comments that the canvas was like Swiss cheese!!

    When Gage and DeSoto left the hospital to go to the fire at the house they didn't have on their turnout coats but when they got there they had them on.

    When Johnny and Roy respond to the fuel leaking into the waterline in their shirt sleeves, miraculously, as they pull up to the house, they have their turncoats on. That would be hard to do (especially for Roy driving) since they usually carry them in the side compartment of the squad!

    They left behind drug box on the sniper rescue.

  • Season 2 Episode 4: Virus

  • Goof: Watch for the disappearing, reappearing thermometer in Johnny's mouth. Early takes it out and reads it then it reappears in a different shot.

    Goof: When they get Johnny over the top of the building after he collapses, Roy goes down to get him. His helmet is on when he is coming up the side of the building, but then when he is on the roof the next time they show him it is off his head. I don't think that he takes it off because, you can see his hands and he is taking off his gloves.

    Goof: In the scene where Dr. Early is taking Johnny's temperature they are trying to keep him cool with the wet cloth on his head. So, why do they have him all covered up with blankets?? Later on he's on a cooling blanket (the blue blanket with the tubes sticking out) but in this scene it's just regular blankets.

  • Season 2 Episode 3: Show Biz

  • Goof: When John and Roy assist Dr. Knot after his first cardiac problem on the road, the Mayfair ambulance that transports them is a Chevy Suburban type vehicle. When they arrive at Rampart, the Chevy uses the turnaround to back up. But when they show the ambulance backing up, it mysteriously turns into a type 1 box! Is this another case of the magical Rampart Emergency Entrance?

    Goof: The producer guy is introduced to "Johnny and Roy". He shakes Roy's hand and says "Nice to meet you Kevin."

  • Season 2 Episode 2: Kids

  • Goof: When they're hauling the hiker up the cliff (no, really, it doesn't look like a dummy, not at all)

    Goof: Roy looks at map before address is given.

    Goof: When they leave for their first run the guys in the engine put their turnout coat on when they arrive at the scene they are not wearing them.

    Goof: When Johnny grabs the kid in the hole and he is being pulled out by his fellow firefighters, he shakes his head which is all dusty and dirty. When he is seen at the hospital later, his head is all nice and clean and his hair is combed.

  • Season 2 Episode 1: Decision a.k.a. Problem

  • This is the first and only time that the Bio-Phone's antenna is placed on the outside of the ambulance body instead of on top of the Bio-Phone. It was clearly a plot device to cause them to have no contact with the hospital.

  • Character Note: Chet Kelly starting wearing a mustache in this episode.

  • The car that the engine was been pulled out of appears to be a high performance V-8 edition of a 1962 Ford Galaxie, as the crossed flags emblem on the fender signify. But the engine on the hoist, either being pulled out or going in, is a bare bones stock straight
    six cylinder!

  • This episode was with the Crown 51. Of all the episodes shown with the Crown 51 the only episode that it was shown getting a supply line was in Hang-up. It wasn't until the Ward La France 51 that engine 51 used supply lines regularly.

  • Goofs: When Roy is in the bunk room and wakes up thinking about everything, he puts on his bunker pants and walks out. If you watch carefully, while he is putting on the pants, the front right suspender comes off and is dangling behind him. As we watch him walk through the door from behind, the suspender is still hanging, but when the camera cuts to a view of him coming through the door from the front, the suspender is reattached! Goof: Stoker and Lopez pull on the chain to hoist the engine then go and help remove the victim. The engine did not fall after they let go of the chain. Goof: The guy in ambulance is supposedly choking (coughing but his body is not moving. Goof: When Roy stops the Squad to get the victim (Bull) and he looks out the window where's Gage? It also looks like Roy is sitting on the passenger side.

    Goof: And when the squad is bringing in the man after the engine fell on him, why is the man in backwards? When did stretchers start putting the patient's head pointing to the window?

    Goof: EKG on patient (Doctor) he's not patched in and the monitor shows V fib after being shocked, and they all just stare at it. Shouldn't he be shocked again?. Goof: Roy & Johnny leave behind the stokes when they rescue the guy gored by the bull. Goof: When the call goes out for the house fire at the end station 51 gets called out with engines 95, 105 and truck 107. However at the actual scene none of the other stations that got called out show up. Engines 800 and 801 are shown obviously not having been dispatched. Also squad 51 rolls up to the house while engine 51 stops up the street presumably to get a supply line. HOWEVER when engine 51 starts up again, engine 127 is shown from the pilot movie with the hose flopping off the back and as engine 51 is shown again rolling up to the front of the house there is NO HOSE flopping off the back.

  • Season 1 Episode 11: Crash

  • Implausibility--Realistically, two people robbing a house probably would not be wearing a dress, heels, and a suit.

  • Student Nurse Sharon Walters was a pom pom girl for Washington Junior High.

  • Ronnie Troup: Daughter of Bobby Troup

  • Goof: Gage and DeSoto respond to the call where the guy who robbed the house had a heart attack. Note that the Squad is different. It is an earlier Dodge (prior to 1970), probably belonging to Squad 209, Squad 18, or Squad 59. It can't be 36, because the original Squad 51 was Squad 36. The grill plate and the sheet metal is different on the cab.

  • Season 1 Episode 10: Hang-up

  • The Adam-12 episode the guys are watching in this episode is an actual episode of the series entitled "Ambush" and originally aired November 10,1971. Jack Webb also created the show.

  • Series stars Marco Lopez and Ron Pinkard both also appeared in the Adam-12 episode "Ambush".
