Classic TV: Adam-12 opening credits (1968-1975)


Premiering in the fall of 1968, Adam-12 was the brainchild of Robert Cinader and Jack Webb of Dragnet fame. Each episode was intended to portray a day in the life of an LAPD “policeman” as realistically as possible, with Officers Pete Malloy (Martin Milner) and Jim Reed (Kent McCord) facing the tragic and amusing events of day to day life in a big city.

The show would run through 1975 — for a total of seven seasons — introducing law-enforcement procedures and jargon to the general public, all while paving the way for the many police-procedural shows that followed in its footsteps. – AJW
