    Hey Seniors...want some laughs?

    Go to YouTube and select Jack Webb and Johnny Carson doing a "Dragnet style" skit concerning a robbery.

    I have this short video in my picture files but I don't know how to post it, so you'll have to see it on YouTube.

    It's funny!

    Here's a parody of the 1950s Dragnet show, where Jack Webb plays Detective Sergeant Friday, with Johnny Carson as a robbery victim:

    Google "The Clapper Caper"...its a 3-minute video. I tried transferring it from my photo files but was unsuccessful.

    Oh yea, I remember Dragnet. TV shows that belonged to Jack Webb: Emergency, Adam-12. He actually cast his ex-wife, Julie London, for the part of Dixie McCall ER Nurse for Emergency. He also cast her "then" husband, Bobby Troup, as the ER Dr.

    Sort of funny, but Robert Fuller, aka Dr. Kelly Brackett ER Dr. had been in Westerns as well, like Laramie and Wagon Train (Indian Scout).

    Yes, I watched all of them shows back then!

    Speaking of the series "Adam -12", why do the 2 patrolmen always say "One Adam -12" on their radio communications?

    In the TV series "Adam-12", Martin Milner and Kent McCord are seen in their patrol car saying "One Adam-12" on their radio.

    Why do they say "ONE" Adam-12, when the name of the show is "Adam-12"?

    Beats me. For the longest time I thought they were saying "one out of twelve." (Not very good odds.)
