''Ironside'' is a 1967-1975 CrimeAndPunishmentSeries whose main character is wheelchair-bound chief detective Robert T. Ironside, played by ''Franchise/PerryMason'' star Creator/RaymondBurr.

Seasons 1-3 are currently available on [[http://www.hulu.com/ironside Hulu]]. The first four seasons are available via DVD on Region 1, while the entire series is available in Australia.

A [[Series/{{Ironside 2013}} remake]] was launched on NBC in fall 2013, starring Blair Underwood - and lasted [[ShortRunner four episodes]] (out of nine produced).

----
!!Tropes featured include:

* AwesomeMcCoolname: Detective Robert T. Ironside.
* BananaInTheTailpipe: Used to fill the car with carbon monoxide and knock out its inhabitants.
* DoesNotLikeShoes: "The Man Who Believed" and "Once More for Joey" both feature Ironside investigating the mysterious deaths of hippie musicians who were known for going barefoot.
* CrossOver: With ''The Bold Ones: The New Doctors'' (also produced by Raymond Burr's company Harbour Productions Unlimited).
* ExoticDetective: Ironside.
* GeniusCripple: Ironside himself.
* TheGenerationGap: Considering that the series takes place in UsefulNotes/SanFrancisco during TheSixties and TheSeventies, this trope is inevitable.
* MarketBasedTitle: When Creator/TheBBC bought this for the UK it was billed as ''A Man Called Ironside'' for no apparent reason.
* PilotMovie
* PoorlyDisguisedPilot: Two in a row at the end of the seventh season - "Riddle At 24,000" (about a crime-solving doctor played by Desi Arnaz) and the two-parter "Amy Prentiss: AKA The Chief" (revolving around San Francisco's first female chief of detectives, played by Creator/JessicaWalter). ''Dr. Durango'' (the name of the proposed former series) didn't sell, but ''Amy Prentiss'' joined the lineup for ''Series/TheNBCMysteryMovie'' the following season.
* ReunionShow: 1993's ''The Return Of Ironside'' (sadly, Raymond Burr passed away not long after it first aired).
* UsefulNotes/SanFrancisco: The series' setting.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: When Barbara Anderson (who won an Emmy for playing Eve Whitfield) left the series to get married, Elizabeth Baur - that's her in the page image - took over as Fran Belding.
* SyndicationTitle: It was syndicated as ''[[TheEponymousShow The Raymond Burr Show]]''.
* TyopOnTheCover: In "The Man Who Believed", guest character Samantha Dain is misspelled as "Samantha Dian" onscreen.
