Theme Song Lyrics

There’s a hold up in the Bronx,
Brooklyn’s broken out in fights.
There’s a traffic jam in Harlem
That’s backed up to Jackson Heights.
There’s a scout troop short a child,
Khrushchev’s due at Idlewild
Car 54, Where Are You?

In 1994, the movie remake of the series Car 54, Where Are You? starred David Johansen as Officer Gunther Toody and John C. McGinley as Officer Francis Muldoon. Nipsey Russell who appeared on the original series appeared as Police Captain Dave Anderson.
