The series revolves around two Los Angeles private detectives, both former government secret agents: Efrem Zimbalist, Jr. played Stuart ("Stu") Bailey, a character Huggins had originated in his 1946 novel The Double Take (which he later adapted into the 1948 movie I Love Trouble, starring Franchot Tone in the role). Roger Smith played Jeff Spencer, also a former government agent, and a non-practicing attorney. The duo worked out of a stylish office at 77 Sunset Boulevard (colloquially known as "Sunset Strip"), between La Cienega Boulevard and Alta Loma Road on the south side of the Strip next door to Dean Martin's real-life lounge, Dino's Lodge. Suzanne, the beautiful French switchboard operator played by Jacqueline Beer, handled the phones.
Comic relief was provided by Roscoe the racetrack tout (played by Louis Quinn), and Gerald Lloyd "Kookie" Kookson III (played by Edd Byrnes), the rock and roll-loving, wisecracking, hair-combing, hipster and aspiring P.I. who worked as the valet parking attendant at Dino's, the club next door to the detectives' office. Kookie's recurring character -- a different, exciting look to which teens of the day related —- the valet parking attendance who constantly combed his piled-high, greasy-styled teen hair, often in a windbreaker jacket, who worked part-time at the so-called Dean Martin's Dino's Lodge restaurant, next door to private investigator agency at 77 Sunset Strip—frequently acted as an unlicensed, protege detective who helped the private eyes (Zimbalist and Roger Smith) on their cases based upon "the word" heard from Kookie's street informants. Kookie called everybody "Dad" (as in "Sure thing . . . Dad."), and was television's homage to the Jack Kerouac style of cult-hipster of the late 1950s. To the thrill of teen viewers, Kookie talked a jive-talk "code" to everyone, whether you understood him or not, and Kookie knew better than others "the word on the street." Some say the Kookie character borrowed much from James Dean's "Rebel", and was the progenitor to The Fonz of the Happy Days series (switch hot rod for motorcycle; same hair, comb and a leather jacket).
Kookie's constant on screen tending of his ducktail haircut led to many jokes among comedians of the time, and resulted in the 1960 charted 'rap' style recording (8 weeks), "Kookie, Kookie--Lend Me Your Comb"
Yupper, GaryD, you nailed it! "The Beverly Hill Billies" was the show, if I am not mistaken the Imperial belonged to the Clampett's business manager.
Mr. Drysdale at the Bank of Beverly Hills.
Twister, a childhood favorite of mine.
Speaking of Dodge Rams....
Red Ram is from Twister. And the second one is from Walker Texas Ranger, I think. The GMC van in my last post was the Trinity Killer's in Dexter. ^Just saw you answered Twister. I also loved that when I was young lol.
These 2 are from movies
Yep, those wide brimmed hats are impossible to miss!
Another favorite of mine...
