Car 54 Where Are You ran from September 1961 until September 1963 on NBC.


Created by Nat Hiken, who also created The Phil Silvers Show, Car 54, was the first situation comedy about police officers. It was also one of the few series of it's time to feature a black performer ( Nipsey Russell), as a regular.


Car 54, Where Are You? centered around Officer's Muldoon and Toody ( Joe E. Ross, Fred Gwynn), - two of the most unlikely patrol-car partners ever seen on a police force! Toody was short, stocky, friendly and just a little bit nosey , a marked contrast to the tall, quiet Muldoon. Although they were assigned to New York's 53rd Precinct - a run-down area in the Bronx not generally considered a place for a sitcom to take place - they always managed to encounter more comedy than crime! Much of the action took place in the precinct house itself, mostly in the locker room as the Officer's changed into their uniforms, and the comedy was more of the old, slapstick variety, reminiscent of Mack Sennett.


One unusual aspect of this show was the partners' patrol car, which looked identical to those used by real-life New York City police - but only because the show was filmed in black & white! The car was actually painted red and white to distinguish it from real police cars during the shooting - all of which was done entirely on location in New York. On the viewers screen at home, the red and white car looked identical to the dark green and white of the real New York City Police cars.


Other's in the large cast included Al Lewis as Schauzer; Charlotte Rae as Mrs. Schauzer; Bea Pons as Lucille Toody; Paul Reed as Capt. Block; Nipsey Russell as Officer Anderson; Fred O'Neal as Officer Wallace; Al Henderson as Officer O'Hara; Duke Farley as Officer Riley; Hank Garrett as Officer Nicholson; Shelley Burton as Officer Murdock; Jerry Guardino as Officer Antonnucci; Jim Gormley as Officer Nelson and Joe Warren as Officer Steinmetz.


Joe E. Ross who played Toody also appeared in Hiken's previous series, " The Phil Silvers Show" while Bea Pons played his wife in that series; thus Ross and Pons became the first actor-actress team to play two different married couples on two sitcoms.


Among the guest stars on this series were Maureen Stapleton, Molly Picon, Wally Cox, Larry Storch, Tom Bosley, Ossie Davis, Sugar Ray Robinson, Rocky Graziano, Margaret Hamilton, and Alice Ghostley ( as Muldoon's girlfriend Bonnie Calsheim).


Sixty episodes were produced.



Another Summary





Car 54 Where Are You? was a US sitcom, created by the incomparable genius that was, Nat Hiken, which was first broadcast on NBC TV from 17th September 1961 to 8th September 1963. In total 60 rollicking laugh-out-loud shows were made.


Many critics and comics believe that this, hugely popular, show was and indeed still is one of the best comedy series ever to appear on television.




The series followed the adventures of NYPD officers Gunther Toody (Joe E. Ross) and Francis Muldoon (Fred Gwynne) in the fictional 53rd precinct in the Bronx, These two intrepid officers were assigned to Patrol Car 54. Gunther was short, stocky, nosy, not very bright, and lived with his loud, domineering wife Lucille. Francis, an Irish American, was very tall, quiet, and more intelligent. He was a shy bachelor who lived with his mother and two younger sisters, Cathy and Peggy.


Episodes had various directors, the most recognized being Al De Caprio. Stanley Prager and Nat Hiken also directed several episodes. Most of its filming was on location in the The Bronx, and at Biograph Studios.


Nat Hiken won the 1962 Emmy award winner for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Comedy for his sterling work on Car 54. That same year, the show was also nominated for Outstanding Program Achievement in the Field of Humor.....plus, Nat and his fellow scriptwriters, Tony Webster and Terry Ryan, received nominations for in the Outstanding Writing Achievement in Comedy category.





A police squad car in Nyack, New York, was stolen from its parking place in front of the police station. The townspeople and police immediately dubbed it - naturally - Car 54.


n Akron, Ohio, the two detectives who drove Cruiser number 54 petitioned their captain to please make the other patrolmen quit calling them "Toody" and "Muldoon" and to order the police radio dispatchers to stop thenceforh from calling out, "Car 54 Where Are You?" Over in Dayton, the department dropped the number 54 from their fleet. Across the Rockies, in Berkeley, California, a police bulletin was quoted as saying that a witness had described a man, who held up a supermarket, as being the double of "Officer Muldoon."


These incidents reflected the impact on America of TV's newest comedy hit, Car 54 Where Are You?and of its two bumbling heroes, Joe E. Ross (as Officer Gunther Toody) and Fred Gwynne (as his partner, Officer Francis Muldoon). On the show, they drove Car 54, which was attached to the mythical 53rd Precinct in the Bronx.


Not every police official liked the show, which depicted the zaniest bunch of policemen since the Keystone cops.......one high-ranking New York police official, who insisted on anonymity, said he would have liked to see the show cancelled as he believed it made all policemen look morons.


"Being a policeman is a grim and humourless business, not at all funny," he was quoted as saying.


The show's creator, Nat Hiken, commented, "That reaction may have been the result of comments made by a few sensation-seeking television columnists........the same thing happened with Bilko (The Phil Silvers Show that was also conceived by Nat). The Army was behind the show from the start, and offered us cooperation. Then a New York columnist wrote, ARMY BIG BRASS UPSET BY BILKO. It wasn't true, We tried to trace the source but couldn't."


Nat researched Car 54 by sitting around a New York precinct squad room for several weeks, listening to the banter and gossip among the men. Nat recalled, "I found a very warm, friendly atmosphere. They never once mentioned any 'grim, humourless' aspects of their jobs."


One of the few official blasts against Car 54 came in San Antonio, Texas where the Police Officers Association passed a resolution to the effect that the show "made them look stupid." According to Variety, the show-business weekly, a copy of the said resolution was sent to NBC President Robert E. Kintner, asking that the series be discontinued. But luckily the document was given short shrift.


Car 54 was filmed at a studio within the territory of New York's 48th Precinct. The captain of the 48th let it be known that his men found the show amusing and discussed it often in their squad room. He also said that the presence of rogue policemen in uniform (the cast of Car 54) on the streets of his precinct had created no confusion among the area's residents and his own men.


But, one morning a Bronx housewife came running down the street and in through the front door of the studio, screaming, "Help, police! My husband is beating me!" The show's crew quietened her down, then called legitimate police to rescue her from her torment.


Nat recalled, "Of course, that might have happened because we had a sign reading '53rd Precinct' outside the building.....we have since removed the sign."


The show never used real policemen, even in crowd scenes. In fact, the Car 54 that Toody and Muldoon drove was painted dark red and white to destroy any resemblance to a real New York police squad car!

Here's Joe E. Ross's Obituary from The New York Times


Joe E. Ross Dies at 67; Actor in TV's 'Car 54'

AP
Published: August 15, 1982


Joe E. Ross, an actor best known for his role as the chunky policeman Gunther Toody in the television series ''Car 54, Where Are You?,'' died Friday, apparently of a heart attack, a family spokesman said. He was 67 years old.


Mr. Ross was stricken while performing in the clubhouse of his apartment building in suburban Van Nuys, according to Joe Seide, a friend and former publicist. He was pronounced dead at St. Joseph Medical Center in Burbank.


Mr. Ross, a New Jersey native, went to Hollywood in the 1950's to play Sgt. Rupert Ritzik on ''The Phil Silvers Show'' on CBS from 1955 to 1959. He and Fred Gwynne starred as two patrolmen frequently in hot water in ''Car 54,'' broadcast on NBC from 1961 to 1963.


Mr. Ross also appeared in ''It's About Time,'' a short-lived comedy series on CBS about two astronauts whose space capsule lands in the Stone Age. He played the caveman and Imogene Coca portrayed his wife.


In recent years, he made club appearances and had guest roles on television. He is survived by his wife, Arlene.



Here is Fred Gwynne's Obituary from the LA Times


Fred Gwynne; Actor Played 'Munster,' 'Car 54' Roles


July 03, 1993|MYRNA OLIVER | TIMES STAFF WRITER






Fred Gwynne, a dour but lovable stage, film and television actor for four decades who was best remembered for his leading roles in the 1960s cult television series "The Munsters" and "Car 54 Where Are You?" died Friday. He was 66.


Gwynne died in his home near Baltimore of pancreatic cancer, his New York legal representatives at Kraditor, Haber & Bienstock announced.


The versatile character actor had most recently appeared as the Southern judge in the popular comedy film, "My Cousin Vinny," released last year.


Asked about his favorite parts, Gwynne named serious roles such as Big Daddy in the play "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof," but then added:


"And I might as well tell you the truth. I love old Herman Munster. Much as I try not to, I can't stop liking that fellow."


The 6-foot, 5-inch Gwynne wore elevator shoes, plugs on his neck and a square head to play the seven-foot, Frankenstein monster-like Herman, patriarch of an odd clan that lived in the eerie Gothic mansion at 1313 Mockingbird Lane in the 1964-66 CBS series.


Although the original black-and-white series was short-lived, it has enjoyed a longstanding history in reruns and was remade as "The Munsters Today" with John Shuck as Herman in 1988-91.


Gwynne's television life as the New York cop Francis Muldoon in "Car 54 Where Are You?" was also short-lived, running on NBC from 1961 to 1963, but that series also has enjoyed perennial reruns. With Joe E. Ross as his short, nosy partner, Officer Gunther Toody, the taciturn Gwynne managed to find more comedy than crime in the 53rd Precinct station house and on the streets of New York's Bronx.


Gwynne was also a gifted writer and illustrator of children's books, including "The King Who Rained" and "Chocolate Moose for Dinner." He had recently completed a book to be published at Christmastime.


Born July 10, 1926, in New York City and the son of a stockbroker, Gwynne began his acting career in 1952, when he was featured with Helen Hayes in the Broadway play "Mrs. McThing." He appeared in such plays as "The Fogs of Spring," "The Lincoln Mask," "The Enchanted," "Our Town," "The Winter's Tale" and "Hamlet." He last appeared on Broadway in "Who Dunnit?" in 1983.


In 1979, Gwynne won an Obie, the off-Broadway award comparable to a Broadway Tony, for his role in "Grand Magic."


He made his film debut in "On the Waterfront" in 1954, and later appeared as a mobster in "The Cotton Club" in 1984, as leading man Michael Douglas' co-worker in "Fatal Attraction" in 1987, and as a curmudgeon in "Pet Sematary" in 1989.


Gwynne also was a familiar character on quality drama programs, including "Studio One," "Kraft Theater," "DuPont Show of the Month," "Play of the Week," "U.S. Steel Hour," and "Hallmark Hall of Fame."


Gwynne's distinctively deep voice was also familiar in television commercials and voice-overs for documentaries.


He served in the Navy during World War II and graduated from Harvard University in 1951.


Gwynne is survived by his wife, Deborah, and four children.
