From 1973-78 Telly Savalas portrayed streetwise New York Lieutenant Theo Kojak, appearing on the UK's TV screens each Saturday night. The cover shows Kojak wielding his trademark lollipop, and the character's interior likeness is instantly recognisable. Also making their way into transfer form are co-stars George Savalas (Telly's real-life brother) as Sergeant 'Fatso' Stavros (top row) — and Kevin Dobson as Detective Bobby Crocker (bottom right).
