* SpottingTheThread: The episode "Here We Go Again" the plot is ''started off'' with this. An old criminal discovers from one of the main characters that the only thing they had done wrong on a heist they pulled many years ago and served jail time for was that they had disguised as police wearing ''winter'' uniforms instead of summer uniforms. This set off a funny episode as the criminals pull together their now-aged gang to pull off the heist correctly this time. [[spoiler: They pull it off, but are all too weak to pick up the gold bars. They then escape the bank wearing the correct summer police uniforms... from the 1920's, not the PresentDay (at the time the episode aired) 1960's uniforms.]]

[[NewYorkCityCops NYPD]] Officer Gunther Toody (Joe E. Ross) is a short, stocky, dim-witted, married cop who is assigned to Patrol Car 54 in the (fictional) 53rd precinct in the Bronx with the taller, thinner, smarter, unmarried Officer Francis Muldoon (Fred Gwynne). Episodes revolve around the comedic tension generated by Toody and Muldoon's opposite personalities, their unsuccessful attempts to "get tough" and carry out their police duties despite both being too warm-hearted to have the steel nerves they think they require, and Toody's lack of intelligence but abundance of enthusiasm and/or stubbornness proving either an asset or a liability depending on the situation.

* GloriousMotherRussia: In "Toody and Muldoon Meet the Russians", the duo are assigned guard detail for a group of visiting Soviet dignitaries, who decide that the overworked, underpaid NYPD officers are the perfect place to start fomenting Communist revolution in the United States. However, Commissar Malonov is converted into a capitalist New York Yankees fan by the oblivious Toody, while Muldoon persuades the female General Raskolnikov[[note]] As she is female, she should be General Raskolnikov''a''.[[/note]] to get a makeover so as not to stand out in the eastern European districts she wants to visit in New York, and she likes the results so much that she ends up getting drunk and performing a burlesque act at a formal reception.

* TheInspectorIsComing: In "Toody and Muldoon Crack Down", a chief inspector tours the 53rd precinct and finds that Toody and Muldoon are letting over a hundred minor violations (obstructed fire escapes and sidewalks, unauthorised loudspeakers, etc.) go unpunished in their sector. However, his outrage dissipates when he discovers that overlooking minor violations is part of how Toody and Muldoon have ensured that ''no'' major crimes have taken place in their sector in the nine years they've been patrolling it, and that the duo are universally beloved by the local residents and business owners as friendly, helpful, and reliable.
