Crazy Like a Fox is an American television series set in San Francisco, California, that aired on CBS from December 30, 1984 to May 3, 1986.


The series starred Jack Warden as Harry Fox, a free-spirited private detective who lived by his wits, and John Rubinstein as his high-strung attorney son, Harrison, who unwillingly, and frequently, found himself dragged into his father's cases.

The show's opening would always feature Harry and Harrison talking on the phone in their offices like this:

  • Harrison: Hello?
  • Harry: Harrison, I need your help.
  • Harrison: Dad, you keep forgetting. I'm a lawyer. You're the detective!
  • Harry: Aw, come on son. All I need is a ride. What could possibly happen?

Penny Peyser played Harry Jr.'s wife and Della Reese had a recurring role as a nurse at the local hospital who had an antagonistic (in a very joking and friendly manner) relationship with Harry Sr, often assisting him in his investigations and providing her own information.[1] Originally airing Sundays at 9 pm (EST), the show was a hit in its first season, even cracking the Nielsen Top 10 with an average household share of 19.9, and initially continued to pull solid numbers during its second season, but midway through that season, CBS brought back its Sunday Night Movie, which displaced the show (along with Trapper John, M.D., which followed Crazy Like a Fox up to that point) and resulted in it being bounced around to various time slots, which caused ratings to drop significantly and led to its cancellation at the end of the season.

Reruns were later shown in syndication and on the CBN Cable Network, and a reunion TV movie titled Still Crazy Like a Fox aired on CBS in 1987 that featured Monty Python's Graham Chapman in one of his last roles.

For his performance, Warden received two nominations for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series.[2][3]
