"CHiP's" Ponch or Jon?




"CHiP's" That's California Highway Patrol to you Pal.

Back in my day, growing up in the 70's... I'm talking when kids had to be in bed at 8:00 and it was a treat to get to stay up for your favorite TV show once or twice a week, The TV Show "CHiP's" was King. After school, neighborhood kids across America would gather and fight over who was the famed motorcycle cops Ponch (Erik Estrada) or Jon (Larry Wilcox) while riding bicycles side by side.

Then you get in trouble for chasing down your little brother or sister and making a traffic stop and roughing them up a little bit..

Now Ponch was considered the cool one that got all the girls, but after a 30 year re-evaluation and watching a few shows again, its obvious that Jon was the more intelligent leveled headed one. I think I'm more the Jon type now.

Because of the amazing evolving Internet, you can now watch this 1970's classic on Fancast.com. Even if you not a fan, it's worth it just to see all the old cars. Your almost guaranteed to see a Pacer or Pinto in every episode. You can even enjoy the distinct 70's funk orchestra music that was ever present on most programming of the era. Sure did sound like my trumpet God Idol Maynard Ferguson was playing the theme music for "CHiP's", but I was unable to make the connection. Maynard did perform the high screaming trumpet work for "Gonna Fly Now" theme from the 1976 movie "Rocky".

Maybe "CHiPs" and the music amongst other reasons made That 70's Show so popular. At the time, the 70's just seemed like the lost decade.
