Trivia

A video game was in the works for this series but after the show's cancellation, development stopped. The game was to feature several puzzle games and a few police training scenarios such as target practice and a police cycle avoiding objects. No screen shots were shown, but an interview appeared in the 1991 issue of Game Dish with developer Matsuo Hoganori and David J. Smithe, who revealed it was the first game they worked on together. However, the only thing that physically was produced was the title screen and a non finished sprite of Lassard's goldfish. See more »

A hilarious cartoon version of a hilarious live action movie series!
10 August 2004 | by Indyfan82See all my reviews

I grew up watching this cartoon in the late 1980s. The movies the cartoon is based on are incredibly funny! The cartoon is very true to the movies and the characters look and sound much like the movies. The whole gang of cops gets the job done in their own unique way, with tons of laughs along the way. Plus, there's a great theme song by The Fat Boys! (Fat Boys coming to town, oh yeah! bomp, ch-ch, bomp, ch-ch bomp bomp) Captain Harris and Proctor are really funny as they try to get the lovable crew of Mahoney, Jones, Sweetchuck, Zed, Hightower, Hooks, House, Callahan, and Tackleberry off the force. But Commandant Lassard and the Professor are there on their side and the Police Academy always comes through. Hooray!
