* [[HeyItsThatGuy Hey It's That Guy]]: [[Series/{{Route66}} And he's still driving a car!]]
** It's [[{{Series/Lassie}} Timmy's mom]] (she didn't fall in the well, though)!
** Some woman stole [[LeaveItToBeaver Wally's]] new car just as he got back from 'Nam! Ward's gonna clobber him!
** [[TheDickVanDykeShow Buddy Sorell]] is a Mermaid who's [[ActorAllusion heard all the jokes]].
** [[Franchise/{{Emergency}} John Gage's]] girlfriend tried to get him busted for burglary and Chet Kelly was delivering pizzas. And then there's Marco Lopez, who showed up in several different roles.
** [[{{LaughIn}} Jo Anne Worley]] as a roller derby queen who socks it to a thief (and has the hots for Malloy).
** [[Film/RepoMan Bud]] apparently was a welfare hustler before he started repossessing cars.
** [[Series/TheBionicWoman Jaime Sommers]] was flirting with Officer Reed!
** [[Film/AnimalHouse Otter]] stole a horse!
** [[Series/ThePartridgeFamily Keith Partridge]] was a drug addled teen. In one episode of this show, I mean.
** [[Series/TheWaltons Grandma Walton]] helped herself to a vacationing neighbor's living room furniture.
** [[Film/SilenceOfTheLambs Clarice Starling]] and her best friend got themselves stuck on the roof of their elementary school.
** [[Series/TheMunsters Eddie Munster]] was the head of a gang of child burglars (he only did it because [[{{Film/Psycho}} Mother]] told him to).
** [[Series/GeneralHospital Roy DiLucca]] saved someone from a warehouse fire [[spoiler:after he started it while robbing the place.]]
** [[Series/GreenAcres Mr. Haney]] got wasted and was directing traffic in the middle of a busy intersection.
** Some mean punks ran over [[Series/CharlesInCharge Buddy Lembeck's]] football.
** A vigilante private citizen thumb cuffed [[Series/StElsewhere Victor Ehrlich]] for supposedly stealing a set of mag wheels.
** [[Series/BlackSheepSquadron Pappy Boyington]] became a Los Angeles County District Attorney.
** [[Franchise/PerryMason Della Street's]] teenage daughter got busted for dealing drugs. Although with the right lawyer she'll probably stand [[ThePerryMasonMethod a good chance of beating the rap.]]
** [[Series/{{Bewitched}} Darrin Stephens]] got into a battle with his neighbor over the use of a boat. [[DownerEnding It didn't end well.]]
** [[Series/{{Mash}} Frank Burns]] left the medical profession after the war and became an LA detective.
** [[Series/TheDickVanDykeShow Sally Rogers]] thought a rattlesnake had snuck into her suitcase on a trip to Phoenix (it was an electric toothbrush).
** [[Franchise/CharlieChan Number One Son]] got involved in a gang war in Chinatown.
** [[Film/TheBreakfastClub Principal Vernon's]] daughter was kidnapped (which may explain why he has no tolerance for hoodlums).
** After missing the last train to Clarksville, [[Series/TheMonkees Micky]] went to LA and wound up in a motorcycle gang.
** [[Series/HogansHeroes Sergeant Carter]] was taking pictures of a naked girl out on Venice Beach (probably learned the fine art of nude photography from Hogan).
** [[Series/FamilyAffair Jody Davis]] got caught buzzing around Los Angeles on a hopped up dirt bike. Mr. French should have kept a better eye on him.
** [[Series/EightIsEnough Tom Bradford]] was a raving drunk, which may be why his son [[Series/EightIsEnough Tommy]] tried to run away to Montana in the next episode.
** [[Series/TheAndyGriffithShow Helen Crump]] left Sheriff Taylor for Officer Malloy.
** A kind of "hey, it's that vehicle" with one episode using the Crown Pumper fire engine that later was the first Engine 51.

Added DiffLines:

* Although Martin Milner did not get a full police funeral as Jack Webb did at his death, he was paid tribute by one of the LAPD bands playing at the funeral, and an End of Watch broadcast on the LAPD radio that can be heard [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lI6WKJiPwCw here.]] The last line is a definite TearJerker. Many police officers also attended the funeral, having been inspired in their career choice by Martin's portrayal of Pete Malloy.
