  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (1)

    • As Starsky and Hutch see off some brawling rednecks:
      Redneck: "Lousy Cops, what right've you got hanging around Sue Ann?"
      Hutch: "Mess with the lady again, friend, you're gonna find out."
      Starsky: "Hey... that's terrific. You sound just like Dirty Harry."
      Hutch: "Dirty who?"
      Starsky: "Harry. Cop over in San Francisco."
      Hutch: "Oh."
      - A nod to the Dirty Harry movies, in which David Soul (Hutch) co-starred in the second, 'Magnum Force' (1973)

  • NOTES (2)

    • Special Guest Star Scatman Crothers plays "Fireball". Only seen in one scene, playing (imaginary) baseball with Huggy, we don't learn much about his character other than he seems to be an ex-baseball star, who's possibly suffered some mental problems. A talented musician, with countless classic movie credits to his name, Scatman Crothers also provided the voice of 'Hong Kong Phooey', in the cult 1970s Hanna Barbera cartoon series. Incidentally, this is the last episode that Huggy Bear is seen in until the next season.

    • Lynn Anderson (country singer Sue Ann Grainger) is in real-life a singer, nowadays retired, and wrote and performed the songs heard in this episode.
