1982: Last Telecast of ‘Police Squad!’

This day in 1982 marked the last telecast of Police Squad!

The series, which was packed with sight gags and comedic wordplay, starred Leslie Nielsen as by-the-book police officer Frank Drebin, who’s generally unaware of the comedic activity erupting around him.

Created by David Zucker, Jim Abrahams and Jerry Zucker — who wrote and directed the feature film Airplane! — the series lasted just six episodes on ABC, but inspired the popular Naked Gun film series, for which Nielsen reprised the role of Drebin.
