To My Fellow Highway Patrol Fans:
Welcome to the Web Page dedicated to the show we grew up watching. If you are like me, I can never get the site of a big black & white Buick zooming down a wide open California freeway out of my system.
Over the years, my love of "Highway Patrol" has led me to collect video copies of the episodes, articles, photos, toys, and finally to build a 55 Buick Highway Patrol replica! I have had the honor of meeting many of the show's stars, advisors, creators, and directors. Along the way I have learned a great deal about 50's TV, Ziv productions, and the real California Highway Patrol.
I commend Glenn Davis for putting together this fine Web Page, so these memories could be shared with other big boys who become mesmerized when they hear that familiar refrain.
Many Happy Highway Patrols,10-4!

You have found THE Highway Patrol Show site!
For all of you, like me, who have previously failed to find any sites truly dedicated to the preservation of Dan's legacy; this is your chance to come forward and join the premiere group of fans. Sign the guestbook so that the scope of Danism can be seen. This may lead to something big; a movement.
Thanks to Gary for bringing the memory to life and to Glenn for the forum to express it.

Yesterday, I learned Robert Waguespack recently passed away. Robert was a big
fan of Highway Patrol. He used to come to various car shows where we became
friends and he even got to meet Kelly Crawford. I'm grateful for the fact my
car and our website added some joy to his final days...10-4!

Happy New Year to all 'Highway Patrol' fans! 2013 begins our site's 15th year as the preeminent source of information on the classic series. Mark your calendars and plan to attend our Annual 10-4 Day. This will be the 10th one held and sure to be a blow-out celebration in Hollywood.

Does anyone know if the THIS or it's sister COZI network have any plans to start rerunning Highway Patrol again? I don't know how these new "networks" are defined, they at times will flash the WPIX logo, which is a NYC station.
Do the large stations sport many little such offshoots? I would assume that would be good, as it is then more likely they will show older shows such as Highway Patrol. Heck, COZI shows Hopalong Cassidy.

I suspect they are giving the show a rest and will bring it back in the future. I have also contacted the founder of MeTV and to see if they would be interested in running the series and they are. However he told me because the show is owned by MGM it's probably going to remain on THIS...10-4!

DVD news - tvshowsondvd.com is reporting that TGG Direct (an official licensee of MGM-TV properties) will make seasons 2, 3, and 4 of Highway Patrol available on DVD on April 2. The price will reportedly be $24.95 per season. I have purchased TGG Direct's offerings of "Bat Masterson" and "Sea Hunt" and have found the quality to be excellent and the releases a terrific value for the price. The only caveat I'd offer is that their initially stated release dates are sometimes a bit optimistic. If you're watching for the DVDs and they aren't yet available by April 2, don't panic.

I just love the TV Series - Highway Patrol. This is the best way to bring back the past. This is also far superior than attending a High School Reunion (for me that is). I was bullied in High School, but went to my 20th & 40th Reunion. The few classmates I liked wanted to stay in touch - well they did provided I call ed them, and they never called me. What a bunch of misers! Well, I got wiser this time, and did not go to my 50th High School Reunion. It was about the happiest day of my life, and I even forget more about the classmates that bullied me. All this was about money & getting as many people to come. Well, I found a better way to be in touch with people I knew back then. Just go to whitepages.com This free people search helped me make friends with people I knew over 50 years ago. I did not get 100% response, but that's OK - The 5% response was plenty satisfactory! Old time TV is my way of bringing back the past. No bullies to worry about, no fees for attending a Reunion, peace of mind, and not getting as nervous as a
long tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs. Glad I'm doing what I'm doing at this time!

I just pre-ordered the newly released seasons 2,3, and 4 thru Amazon. I have two complete sets from other companies already but the quality in some episodes isn't the greatest and some of Mr. Crawford's tips at the end are missing in some episodes.
I am hoping these will have the same quality as the MGM Season 1 has.
Susan Bowers email@example.com Lakeland Feb 19/2013 14:09 PST
Susan: With regard to the quality of the DVDs, I'm optimistic based on my experience thus far with TGG Direct's releases from its MGM-TV licensing agreement. I noticed that "Highway Patrol" is at a higher price point per season ($24.96) than either "Bat Masterson" or "Sea Hunt," but assuming the quality is similar, I would still regard the price as VERY reasonable.
Sam Spear firstname.lastname@example.org Charlotte NC USA Feb 23/2013 11:19 PST
Is 'mountain cabin' #16 (blatz beer) the only episode that has the original commercials??
cory Feb 23/2013 14:17 PST
That bootleg copy is as far as I know the only one with vintage commercials, 10-4!
Gary Feb 24/2013 18:46 PST
Early last year I bought the entire set for 100 and some dollars....$125 or something like that. These discs were shipped from China and have a greenish label with a picture of "Dan" holding a mic. The quality is FAIR to POOR and they do,indeed have the original commercials. The MGM version is probably MUCH better quality and I would assume that they are probably about the same as what they put on TV.

DVD Update: Box art for TGG Direct's releases of Seasons 2, 3, and 4 of Highway Patrol has been posted at amazon.com. I could SWEAR that Gary's Buick is the one pictured on the front of all three boxes! (But it's also possible that someone just did an exemplary job of colorizing an original production still.) I'm also pleased to note that the price per season has been lowered to $21.97.

Here is what THIS TV told me re Highway Patrol in Nov. 2012:
As you know, most of our series are older programs. Many of them are not closed captioned and the FCC gave us a grace period to get all programming 100% closed captioned and we are nearing the end of that grace period.
In order to comply with the FCC regulations for closed captioning, we had to switch out a few programs while we go through the process of closed captioning them. The replacement programs are already closed captioned so they are allowing us to strategically get it all done in a reasonable amount of time. Once our library is 100% in compliance, those programs will return to the schedule.

DVD Update: Not unexpectedly (to me anyway) there has apparently been a delay in the shipment of the TGG Direct DVDs for Season 2 and Season 3. As of today (April 3), only a few sets of the Season 4 DVDs from TGG Direct have shipped from Amazon.com. I received one of the Season 4 sets and can confirm that the shows look very good (if anything, the quality is better than the Season 1 DVDs from MGM MoD). As I posted earlier, TGG Direct's product is high quality and good value, but the company's initially stated release dates often prove to be too optimistic. We'll have to wait a little longer for the remaining seasons, but early returns indicate that the product will be worth the wait.
Sam Spear firstname.lastname@example.org Charlotte NC Apr 03/2013 19:18 PST
Just checked This TV schedule: Highway Patrol is back beginning tomorrow (4/30/13) at 4 a.m. (ET).
Debbie Apr 29/2013 17:32 PDT
Thank you so much for posting about the return of Highway Patrol on THIS! Plus Sea Hunt is on right after. I am so happy, you can paint me yellow and call me a cab. Mike from Jersey
Mike from Jersey brassrazoo@AOL.com New Jersey Apr 29/2013 21:11 PDT
Yes, thanks for posting this info. We will get it listed on the main page of the site, 10-4!
Gary Apr 30/2013 04:27 PDT
I'm curious, after reading about your mostly CF public appearances, is Highway Patrol still popular and a part of the CF culture? Perhaps because of the location filming, that it captured a CF that no longer exists, it has greater appeal for the natives there than say on the east coast,as I feel like the lone fan here in Jersey.
Mike email@example.com Swamps of Jersey May 01/2013 20:03 PDT
Your not the ONLY fan in NJ. I'm in Cherry Hill (near Phila.) and was very dissapointed when THIS in Philadelphia stopped showing HP. Even though I have the complete series on DVD's I still watched them on TV if I was up. I called the station in Phila. and they told me that they will NOT be returning the show. I guess the network doesn't require all stations to carry the same programing.
Stu May 04/2013 12:41 PDT
I did receive Seasons 2,3, and 4. They are all clear and easy to watch. There are two episodes that have slight flaws: Slain Cabby and Hostage Officer. There are a few places where the sound cuts out for a second or two.
Also, the episode lists are not correct for Season 3. But, then you have probably already noticed that. :) All they really need to do is reprint the cover and lists.
I am seriously thinking about getting different disc holders so that each disc has its own holder. When 2 and 3 came, some of the discs were not seated properly and were free-floating, causing some scuffing. They still play good though.
I am just glad to have a good set to watch. :)
Susan Bowers firstname.lastname@example.org Lakeland May 04/2013 23:25 PDT
ThisTV isn't showing Highway Patrol every day. The schedule shows only six airings in May. I don't really mind. I'll take what I can get. I don't like the 4 a.m. time slot though. Wish ThisTV would move Highway Patrol back to 5 a.m.
Debbie May 08/2013 07:22 PDT
Sadly, I just read that jeanne cooper has just passed from an undisclosed illness at the age of 84. She appeared in 'girl bandit' #15 as Louise Douglas. She looked very sexy in this episode driving a 1952 ford confortable (star shaped parking lights) her hair blowing in the wind while smoking a cigarette. I loved the way she drove off in guy prescott's mercury convertible while he was in the gas station.
Warren Siddons May 08/2013 13:07 PDT
Very sad news about Jeanne Cooper. I watched her on Young and the Restless for many years. "Girl Bandit" episode airs tomorrow at 4 a.m.
Debbie May 08/2013 18:39 PDT
I Heard That Jeanne Cooper Died She Did A Highway Patrol Episode I Wear My Fedora Just Like Broderick Crawford Does On Highway Patrol.
Delbert "Dellie Goose" Hutchinson DELLIEGOOS@AOL.COM Tacoma,Washington,USA May 10/2013 14:44 PDT
Absolutely LOVE this show! As a retired cop I really enjoy watching Highway Patrol on thistv. But, got a question: In the fourth season an older man, often with wire-rimmed glasses, is often seen in uniform...either in the office, driving, etc. This man NEVER speaks or says a word. I doubt he had a stroke, etc., as he moves pretty well. Can anyone tell me who this is and what is his story? Thanks

Ziv was known for being frugale and used employees to fill in place of actors, 10-4...
Gary May 20/2013 04:05 PDT
