Premise

A popular variation on Butch and Sundance, with two plainclothes cops on the prowl for bad guys with help from their streetwise informant, Huggy Bear. The stars' banter and chemistry were the show's chief appeal, backed by action-packed car-chase scenes that made red-and-white Ford Torinos all the rage. A 2004 big-screen version starring Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson got the music, fashion and sensibilities of the '70s just about right.
