Default Who was your favorite Caucasian cop--Swanhauser ("Swanee") or Hopkins ("Hoppy")?

Two recurring characters on "Sanford and Son" during its first season were LAPD officers "Smitty" Smith (Hal Williams) and "Swanee" Swanhauser (Noam Pitnik). Not long after "Sanford and Son" began its second season, Officer Swanhauser was replaced by Officer "Hoppy" Hopkins (Howard Platt). There were noticeable differences between "Swanee" and "Hoppy"; "Swanee" was serious and to-the-point, whereas "Hoppy" was bumbling and clueless.

Who was your favorite Caucasian cop on "Sanford and Son"--Swanhauser or Hopkins? Which one do you think was a better foil for the easy-going "Smitty"?

Drop me a line...I'd love to hear from you! Enjoy your evening, everyone!

I thought both were good characters and well-played.

If I were Smitty, would rather have Swany watch my back than Hoppy.

Noam Pitnik looks like Jose Menendez the father of the Menendez Brothers who killed him.
