Here is a listing of the various opening segments
at the beginning of each Car 54 episode:
1) Toody and Muldoon salute the police commissioner
as they drive by
him, thus causing Toody to drop the ice cream out of his cone.
2) Toody and Muldoon are playing checkers on the
dashboard while on
patrol, Muldoon hits a bump in the road causing the pieces to move,
and Toody wins the game.
3) Toody dons a disguise as a female blond in hopes
of being able to
catch a crook.
4) Toody and Muldoon realize they are wearing each other's hats.
5) Toody plays a joke on Muldoon by putting a pop-out
snake in a fake
can of "peanuts". (My personal favorite)
6) Toody waves a fake spider on a string in front
of Muldoon, causing
no reaction out of him. The spider lands on a clipboard, Toody
reaches for it, and gets "spooked" himself.
7) Toody forgets he is wearing sunglasses at dusk
and has to use a
flashlight to see what he is writing in his report.
8) Toody tries to figure out why the two-way radio
Muldoon shows him that the handset isn't plugged into it.
9) Toody opens his lunch box to find that Lucille
has packed everything
into it.....except the food.
10) Toody and Muldoon are driving around handcuffed
to each other
because they lost the handcuff key.
11) Toody is playing a flute, which makes a cobra
snake appear. Muldoon can't
believe his eyes. When he tries to make Toody look, the snake disappears.
