In 1986 an unsuspecting TV nation met a new kind of comedy hero who made Rambo look like Pee Wee Herman.
David Rasche starred as the trigger-happy lawman whose hatred of criminal scum and yogurt eatin' creeps was matched only by his love of excessive force and a .44 Magnum.
Over the next two seasons, this hilariously deranged lampoon of 'Dirty Harry' and plenty of other targets became one of the most notorious series in television history and launched a rabid cult of fans that grows to this day: this is 'Sledge Hammer'!
