Added DiffLines:

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Alan North's Ed Hocken is much more of an authority figure to Frank than the close buddy George Kennedy played in the later films. Peter Lupus' Norberg also is not the total klutz O.J. Simpson's Nordberg is later introduced to be.

* UmbrellaDrink: In the fifth episode Drebin is given one with so many pieces of flair in it that it takes him a few tries before he can find a place he can put his lips to the cup to without getting an umbrella up his nose.
