Next Episode of Crazy Like a Fox is
not planed. TV Show was canceled.
Meet Harry Fox (Jack Warden), a San Francisco private investigator who, at first glance, seems a likely candidate for early retirement.
But don't tell Harry. At age 55, he hasn't slowed down one bit and is still plunging through life, streetwise, ingratiating and as irascible as ever. And even though he looks bedraggled in his rumpled clothes, Harry doesn't care. He puts his style into detective work.
When a client's in trouble and Harry's gumshoe expertise isn't enough to clear him, he calls on his son, Harrison (John Rubinstein), for legal advice, which usually requires some fast talking on Harry's part.
Harrison is Harry's direct opposite. At 32, he's well educated, nattily attired and stylishly groomed. In fact, he would rather run his law practice without referrals from dear old Dad. But on the other hand, when a client's in trouble and needs a piece of evidence, who do you think Harrison calls on first?
It may seem a mismatched partnership, but it works—even though their cases have as many ups and downs as the San Francisco streets.
Take the case of the murdered-but-not-really-dead wife. It all started with a visit from Harrison's client, out on the streets after 12 years in prison for killing his wife.
He claims she's still alive, a fact Harry proves by tracking her down. But that causes an even bigger problem: the enraged ex-con has set out to kill her for real. And it's going to take another Fox hunt to find him and stop him. Just another day in the life of Harry Fox and Son.
Filmed on location in the most picturesque locales of San Francisco, Crazy Like a Fox also stars Penny Peyser as Harrison's wife Cindy and Robby Kiger as their son Josh.
The comedy/adventure series is produced by Frank Cardea & George Schenck and John Baskin & Roger Shulman.
After being released from prison for the murder of his wife, a man sets out find his wife, who is still alive, and finish the crime for which he was imprisoned.
When a wealthy associate dies, Harry is left a cigar box containing film clips of the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake, a cigar, and baseball cards in the will of the man who died. The cigar box also contains a message: "If you're as good a detective as you think you are, use these clues to discover the key to my success."
Harry is hired by a nun to find out how a prostitute was able to get herself into the will of a priest.
A friend of Harry's informs him that he is engaged to Harry's goddaughter.
While on vacation, Harry sees a person commit murder. Harry witnesses the murder in a motor-home while camping with Harrison and family. A camping outing for the Fox family turns into a hunt for a body when Harry claims to have seen a murder being committed aboard a motorhome.
The mystery begins when the Foxes lose their way. On seeing the parked motorhome, they pull over to ask for directions. It is then that Harry witnesses the murder. Harry snoops around the motorhome the next morning but is threatened by the owner, Chuck. Shortly after this, a woman who resembles the "murdered" lady emerges. Puzzled, Harry asks the local sheriff to make a search for the body. But nothing turns up....
A man who has been fatally wounded stumbles into Harrison's office asking for Mr. Fox and then dies soon after. Now, Harry must figure out who Mr. Fox is and why the man wanted him.
A stranger walks into Harrison's office but before he can utter a word, he collapses and dies. Neither Harrison nor Harry knows him. It turns out he was a con artist named Dragotti who had swindled several people. The Press gets wind of it and the incident is splashed in the papers. Thinking Harrison is Dragotti's lawyer, the dead man's victims swarm the office and even picket outside his residence....
Harry finds a counterfeit bill among his winnings in a poker game. Gino, a restaurant worker, tells him that a customer gave it to him as a tip the previous night. Meanwhile, a criminal called Henry Clay born holds a meeting with his men. Elmo, Nick and Nolan and lets slip that he knows one of them had taken a bill from his test batch of counterfeit twenties. Nolan, the guilty one, confesses that Gino now has the money. Clayborn and men confront Gino, who desperately rings Harry up, begging him to come and meet him at the warehouse with the bill.
