Small Town Police

Orly Count, Georgia - The rural police situation comedy THE MISADVENTURES OF SHERIFF LOBO/CBS/1979-81 starred Claude Akins as Sheriff Elroy P. Lobo, a scheming southern con man with a badge who maintained law and order in the Orly County, Georgia.

Claude Akins as Sheriff Lobo and his deputies Perkins & Hawkins - THE MISADVENTURES OF SHERIFF LOBO

Assisting Sheriff Lobo were:

  • Mills Watson as Deputy Perkins (Lobo's brother-in-law)
  • Brian Kerwin as Deputy Birdwell 'Birdie' Hawkins (the naive,  college-educated son of the Mayor)

Lobo's life changed when the Governor of Georgia was so impressed by Orly County's low crime rate (due to Lobo neglecting to report any crime stats) that he sent Lobo to Atlanta to work on a crime fighting task force. Deputy Perkins and Hawkins were also chosen to follow Lobo to the big city.

Sheriff Lobo now reported to Chief J.C. Carson (Nicolas Coster) who unlike the Governor, was not very impressed with Lobo and his deputies. The only hope Lobo had to get on the Chief's good side would be to crack a few cases.

Luckily, Sgt. Hildy Jones (Nell Carter), the Chief's secretary who enjoys getting some action outside of the office and fellow detectives Brandy (Tara Buckman) and Peaches (Amy Botwinick) offer their services to help Lobo in hopes of gaining their own personal glory on the streets of Atlanta.

TRIVIA NOTE: The Sheriff Lobo character first appeared on the series B.J. AND THE BEAR/NBC/1979-81 starring Greg Evigan as B.J. McKay, a cross country trucker with a pet monkey named Bear. In this series, the larcenous Lobo (Claude Akins) and his lame deputy (Mills Watson) gave B.J. grief as he drove his 18-wheeler truck through Lobo's jurisdiction.
