Hard to believe there's an entire generation of people who don't know what I'm talking about when I bring up The Misadventures of Sheriff Lobo.

The Misadventures of Sheriff Lobo.

The Misadventures of Sheriff Lobo was an hour long action-adventure comedic series that ran on NBC from 1979 to 1981. For its second season the show was renamed Lobo.

The lead character, Sheriff Elroy P. Lobo, played by Claude Akins, was a spinoff character from another television series, B.J. and the Bear.

In fictitious Orly County, Georgia, Sheriff Lobo is the lead enforcer of the law, as well as one of its leading offenders. The corrupt sheriff is assisted in his schemes by Deputy Perkins (Mills Watson). An honest but naive new deputy, Birdwell 'Birdie' Hawkins (Brian Kerwin), is unaware of Lobo's schemes. The program also starred Nell Carter as Sgt. Hildy Jones from 1980 to 1981.

When the naive Georgia Governor visits Orly County, he reassigns Lobo and the deputies to his crime fighting task force, Special Crimes Action Team or SCAT in Atlanta, reporting to Chief J.C. Carson (Nicolas Coster). Lobo is forced to contend with his new coworkers, Sgt. Jones and Detectives Peaches (Amy Botwinick) & Brandy (Tara Buckman)).

Other characters in the show were Rose Lobo Perkins (Cydney Crampton), Margaret Ellen (Janet Lynn Curtis) and Sarah Cumberland (Leann Hunley).

The theme song for the show's first season was sung by Frankie Laine.
