Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })CHiPs was a 60-minute comedy/drama on NBC about two California Highway Patrol ("CHiPs") motorcycle officers. The series ran for six seasons from 1977 to 1983. The stars of the show were Francis "Ponch" Poncherello (Erik Estrada) and Jon Baker (Larry Wilcox), along with their commanding officer Sgt. Joe Getraer (Robert Pine).Each episode of the show featured chase scenes and a series of accidents, many of which were choreographed scenes of cars flipping over and catching on fire. Throughout the entire run the two main characters never drew their weapons, the only police series which can claim that distinction.note Yes, even Barney Fife drew his weapon. And put the bullet in.Though Ponch and Jon are best friends on the show, the actors playing these two roles were known for their deep mutual dislike.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })A Made-for-TV movie was produced called CHiPs 99. Guess which year it came out in.A theatrical reboot, written and directed by Dax Shepard and starring Michael Peña and Shepard as Ponch and Jon, was released in March 2017.Compare to Dragnet and Adam-12, other series centering on police officers in the Los Angeles area.

comment
The Ace: T.C. from "New Guy In Town" can apparently do no wrong. He's so good at his job of CHP officer, the other officers start a pool betting on when he finally screws up. (T.C. even enters the pool himself to show he's a good sport.) He later admits that while his skills make him an excellent officer, it also makes it hard for him to make friends. At the end of the episode, he transfers to another location. Before he leaves, Getraer reveals that he missed a vital clue which could have solved the case earlier and counts that as a screw-up. Guess who wins the pool.

Absentee Actor: Only Robert Pine (Getraer) is present and correct for the entire run.
