Don't forget Police Squad. He was brilliant in that.

"I'd just come from the stockyards. We'd gotten reports of hundreds of cows had been senselessly slaughtered in the area, but I couldn't find any evidence. I stopped off for a hamburger and checked in with headquarters."

-- Frank Drebin, Police Squad!
