American comedy/Detective show featuring veteran character actor Jack Warden as the rough and unpredictable private detective Harrison Fox Sr. who solved crime with the reluctant help of his son, respected San Francisco attorney Harry Fox Jr. portrayed by John Rubenstein.
This was one of those typical Buddy cop shows of the eighties, with just a little role reversal thrown in for fun. Harry Senior was a little crazy and more often than not got his son in trouble, jeopardizing his reputation as an upstanding member of the community. In the end they always pulled a solution out of the nether regions and they each learned a lesson about tolerance and understanding that seemed to cross the generational boundaries.
Think Hardcastle and McCormick, but backwards. The show had 35 episodes and ran from 1984-1986. It was followed by a TV reunion movie "Still Crazy Like a Fox" in 1987
