Added DiffLines:

* CoolOldGuy: Despite the fact that his popular self-titled production logo scared some fans (particularly children), he was known as a [[NiceGuy really decent and likable guy]]. Also, when ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' paid homage to his closing logo in the episode. "The Front", he loved it so much, upon meeting showrunner at the time, Mike Reiss, [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments he gave him a hug.]]

Added DiffLines:

* FollowTheLeader: ''The Last Precinct'', Cannell's only SitCom (created with regular collaborator Frank Lupo), was clearly patterned after ''Film/PoliceAcademy'' (in the pilot a character even says "How [the cops] got out of the police academy I'll never know").
