My Friend Tony

Show Summary

When he was in Italy shortly after the end of World War II, John Woodruff was almost pick-pocketed by a very young street hood named Tony. Years later, a fully grown Tony arrived in America to join John as half of a private-investigation team. Professor Woodruff, whose academic career in criminology had given him the ability to analyze the most obscure clues to resolve cases, needed Tony to do his legwork and handle the physical side of the business. As they traveled around the country on assignments, the contrast between Woodruff's conservative, analytical approach and Tony's carefree spirit provided a very productive relationship.

    Back in the 60's, detective dramas were as abundant as dandelions, however making one that stands out is a different story.



    My Friend Tony was a short-lived series that appeared on NBC on Sunday nights back in 1969. It was a show about how an . Army soldier had a chance encounter with an Italian waif who tried to pickpocket him. Years later, the now adult Italian, Tony reunites with the former GI now a criminologist, Prof. Woodruff & they spend their time together solving crimes.



    I felt it was my civic duty to remind people of shows that became obscured in the mists of time & My Friend Tony was one of them.moreless
