The Bloodhound Gang (TV series)

The Bloodhound Gang (TV series)

"The Bloodhound Gang" was a popular segment from the PBS television program "3-2-1 Contact" about three young people who solved crimes, largely with the help of their knowledge of science.

During "3-2-1 Contact's" first season, the Bloodhound Gang consisted of Vikki Allen (played by Nan-Lynn Nelson), Ricardo Lopez (Marcelino Sánchez), and two "junior" detectives who were alternated between different mysteries: Zach Morgan (Kelly Pease) and Cuff (Glenn Scarpelli). Starting with the second season in 1983, Zach and Cuff were replaced by a new junior detective, Skip (Seth Greenspan).

The Bloodhound Gang got its name from Mr. James Bloodhound (conceivably a private detective) who was perpetually absent from his office, presumably dealing with "adult" cases. Whenever a youth of the Bloodhound Gang would answer the phone, they would say, "Bloodhound Detective Agency, wherever there's trouble we're there on the double! Mr. Bloodhound isn't here!" and accept cases suited to their age, such as exposing frauds.

The "Bloodhound Gang" segments were short, and most (though not all) adventures lasted multiple episodes. If an episode of "3-2-1 Contact" ran too long (usually on Friday episodes), an announcement would tell viewers that "The Bloodhound Gang" would not be presented in said episode.

The segments began with a theme song sung by Dámaris Carbaugh::"Whenever there's trouble, :"we're there on the double. :"We're the Bloodhound Gang.

:"If you've got the crime, :"we've got the time. :"We're the Bloodhound Gang.

"The Bloodhound Gang" was discontinued in "3-2-1 Contact's" sixth season, following the death of Sánchez in 1986. However, reruns from previous seasons were shown sporadically during the seventh season.

The "Bloodhound Gang" mysteries were written by Newbery Medal-winning children's author Sid Fleischman.
