SEASON 1:

Fairly short-lived series from 1979 that tried to capitalize on the success of "CHiPs", but failed. BRought to you by the "CHiPs" producers, it centered around the real life group 240-Robert, but changed locations for a more scenic view.

Catchy and memorable, albeit kind of generic (for that time) theme music is by Mike Post and Pete Carpenter. Perhaps this theme gives us some kind of indication to what their rejected theme to "CHiPs" may have sounded like.


Unfortunately, I was hoping to link to the entire series in good quality in English, as previously it had been considered a partially lost series until a couple months ago when a guy uploaded the entire thing to his Google Drive, but all the files are gone, so now all I can do is some episodes in varying quality and only some in English. This also means I won't be doing the suites like I had wanted to.

Keep an eye out on this page incase new loads are re-upped.

All loads on the Archive site, are in English. You'll need to re-archive the page.

PLEASE NOTE: Archive.org has a wonky video player and you need to let the page load before it'll properly play a video, and in a video page that has multiple episodes like this, you may need to click on the specific episode, otherwise the wonky player may start playing the first video.


Attention readers: I have been implementing a system that is nothing more than a note to myself; for cues that I want to include in a suite one day, for now on I will denote them with ^ symbol. It has no special meaning to anyone else but myself. No, the lack of an up arrow symbol doesn't mean the cue is bad (it just may have too much SFX or FX for suite use or just isn't worth my time to edit and include). Hence forth this system will be in all future threads and pre-exiting threads that I go back to for missed episodes. Anything in ( ) are just notes to the arrow and you need not bother with that. The system does not mean that I will make a suite or that one has been made, it's simply for my own reference if and when I do decide to.

    I loved 240-Robert unreservedly during its short run. There wasn't really time to get attached to the cast; the two things that stood out to me were the Hughes 500D helicopter and the theme music. I couldn't get enough of either one.

    I think 240-Robert might have been the first time I became really aware of Mike Post and Pete Carpenter; I liked the theme a lot. I also liked Joanna Cassidy a lot.

    I LOVED this show as a kid. We'd play this all the time. I was always "Thib" because I had light hair, whereas my buddy Marty with the dark hair was "Trap." I don't recall if we had a Morgan, probably whatever girl we could get to play. big grin
