    Considering tthis show was 40 years old, they did a credible job with it for the time!

    I wish there were full episodes uploaded on here, it’s virtually impossible to watch if you’re in the UK :(

    Awesome video! I’ve seen the first 3 seasons on DVD and seeing these network promos really take me back. Very, very cool…thanks for posting. By the way, there’s a nice 3 part video on Route 66 with a nice interview with Martin Milner. Type into search: route 66 festival part 1

    The narrator makes it sound vaguely like one of the 70s GI joe action figure commercials………..” you and GI joe can take to the streets, hold a stakeout, and can catch a theif with his kung fu grip!”

    I grew up in Southern CA on this show and Emergency! I can remember going to a Car Show at the LA Convention Center and meeting Martin Milner and Kent McCord WITH the ADAM-12 unit ! lol Back in the late 60′s and early 70′s the LAPD would come to Elementary Schools and do high speed turns and burnouts in their patrol cars… very cool :)

    Big up to Officer Gus Grant!

  14. emceeslo says:

    That’s right! And when the kids got home, they got another ruthless beating from their parents! But don’t forget the bad cops that make life hard for the good ones doing their job the right way. One bad cop negates 100 good ones.

    i think that until the had a series of disasters they were probably just that popular. think they were least expensive of all. what killed them/ that fishbowl car?

  16. mick621 says:

    seems the thumbs downs are against me. im sure there’ll never be a movie for this. Was ‘the rookies’ this bad too???

  17. thebruno44 says:

    horrible huh…. god, I’m only 36, this feels like a million years ago

  18. sed1228 says:

    @bsbl23 You’re right! The car was a Plymouth until season 5 when they went to the AMC Matadors.

  19. NitekMuscle says:

    Martin Milner sure was bringing the everyman hotness in Adam 12.

  20. 1234567890123456nona says:

    dude i love this freakin tv show

  21. rebel70s says:

    This was a spinoff from Dragnet and so was Emergency it was on syndications reruns durin the late 1970s thy sure dont make any good family oriented today

  22. mick621 says:

    early product placement? maybe he was getting paid?

  23. mick621 says:

    i remeber this as a kid. 7 seasons??? i guess TV has changed more then i realized. what LOW production values

  24. bsbl23 says:

    If I’m thinking correctly, in the early episodes they drove a Plymouth.

  25. TheJerseybull says:

    From the first episode noticed a Rambler car parked promently ,usually a brown 2 door model then an American model,a station wagon,now I am aware that a lot of other makes appear to but since I like AMC cars they just stand out,and this was before the series used the Matador as the squad car. Pete even ‘owned’ a 2 door Matador,he went from the Mustang rag top to that AMC.also noticed a fair amount of AMC’s in Dragnet.Wonder if Jack Webb liked AMC’s and used them for his shows.hmm
