Emergency!

jack webb robert series

(NBC, 1/15/1972, 120 mins). The pilot movie to the hit series about Los Angeles paramedics and their interaction with the fire department and hospital system told briskly in the proven, clipped dialogue Jack Webb style that had served so well in “Dragnet” and “Adam-12” (its two stars turn up here to give this film a Webb continuity). The five leads continued in the series (1972-77), and then first Robert Fuller and then Julie London and Bobby Troup (married in real life) were phased out during the occasional “Emergency!” specials during the 1977-78 season. Kevin Tighe and Randolph Mantooth also provided the voices to their characters in the Saturday morning animated series.
