21 Jump Street is the headquarters for a squad of police officers who specialize in investigations relating to young people. Each of the Jump St. personnel was selected for their ability to pass for high school or college students, allowing them to operate undercover in areas where it is difficult for regular police officers to blend in unnoticed.

After the second season, a spin-off was planned titled "City Court". The intention was to follow the Jump Street cases through the court system. A two-hour pilot was planned in which Tom Hanson is put on trial for murder. But because of the 1988 writer's strike, the series was never produced. The storyline featuring Hanson's murder trial was later used for the third season finale. See more »
Throughout the first season Hansen repeatedly says "tail" when
his mouth obviously says "ass." This was a post-production change in response to network censorship, who thought the word "ass" was inappropriate. See more »

Off. Tom Hanson #2:
Hey Ronnie. The safety's on the left, man. You ought to take it off if you want to threaten somebody.
Safety don't work, man. Never did.

Great to see that the show has hit the DVD format. Watched a few episodes so far from Season 1. Great show and don't know why it was not on reruns anywhere here in Canada. Noticed some over dubs on some dialogue, not sure if that was done back when the show was on FOX or if it has been done when putting it on DVD. Looks like some words are overdubbed, could swear that ass was said originally but you get a different word said. Watch the actor's mouth when the dialogue seems a bit louder briefly. What a gem though this show was and always will be. Holly Robinson is so sexy and still is today. I wonder what Johnny Depp thinks of this being out now on DVD. He never liked doing the show after the 3rd season but stuck it out for his contract duration. Would be nice to hear his comments and have him on the extra features. Too bad.
