Re: Columbo and Adam 12

I barely know Adam-12, but even without Columbo's car, that still is very interesting.

Re: Columbo and Adam 12

Heh, well it's a bit of a mystery considering I took the screen capture myself and now I can't locate the scene. The original tip came in 2009 from the Forum's old pal Headache2112, who wrote, back then:


"I've been watching episodes of Adam-12 on the Hulu website. Knowing that both Adam-12 and Columbo were Universal properties, I thought there was a good chance that Columbo's car might turn up in an episode.

Season 4, Episode 14, "Citizen's All" begins with Officers Malloy and Reed responding to a call of a motorist in distress, the victim of a smash and grab.

Adam-12 pulls up next to a woman in a wacky dress standing next to a gigantic Ice Machine. Right there in the background is Columbo's car. In the episode, it's the woman's car. We don't get much more of a look at it, but she does complain about what the thieves did to her car.

Check it out on Click on TV, then Browse. Adam-12 is listed alphabetically. Again, it's Season 4, episode 14.

The car is only seen for the first segment, so don't bother looking for it later in the episode.

It made me smile!"


This morning I found the episode here:

but if the ice-machine lady's scene is in it, I didn't spot it. Could be it was just one of those wacky, throw-away scenes they had, and it got cut from the version at the above link. I probably paid to see it on Hulu back in 2009, just to get the picture! :smile:
