Police Squad! (1982 - 1982)
A nutty satire of police dramas from the creators of the 'Airplane!' films, with a nonstop barrage of sight gags, puns and silly jokes. The series didn't duplicate the success of those movies, but it did lead to the 'Naked Gun' features, with Leslie Nielsen still playing the deadpan Frank Drebin and surely becoming a cult favorite. And don't call him Shirley.
