Malloy and Reed of Adam-12 showed off their goofy sides on Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In

"I sure wish you wouldn't slam the door on my line."

Adam-12 is usually known for its gripping realism, its law enforcement jargon, and the relationships built within the force as the cops patrol the streets. One thing that it isn't readily known for is its humor. There were lots of sitcoms on TV at the time that favored laughs over plot — and Adam-12 left them to it.

However, this doesn't mean that our favorite LAPD officers could not crack a joke.

During seasons five and six of the sketch comedy show Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In, Martin Milner and Kent McCord dropped in from time to time as Officers Malloy and Reed, their respective characters from Adam-12.

Most of the time they stay in character, delivering quips as they sit in the familiar car. Other times, well… just watch above.

Watch Adam-12 on MeTV!

Milner looks to have had a great sense of humor!

I never watched Adam-12 that much when it was in first run, but I'm really enjoying the reruns. Kent McCord and Martin Milner were great together, the writing was fantastic, the stories were realistic.

MeTV's sister station Decades runs reruns of Laugh-In weeknights. As Gary Owens would say, check local listings.

Back then, a network wouldn't think twice about trashing the integrity of one series for the marketing benefit to another.

Good thing they didn't encounter Officer Judy.

I like Adam-12. Nice guys just trying to serve their community.

I've seen the whole shows these came from! Basically, the problem was that Milner & McCord weren't comedians, and George Schlatter thought the mistakes were funnier than the jokes!

Kent McCord's only "official" comedy role was in "Airplane II: The Sequel."
