TV Time: S.W.A.T. Opening Credits (1975)

S.W.A.T. van 1975. Coolest delivery truck on TV!

Here’s the opening credits for one of my favorite shows as a kid – S.W.A.T. You remember what the acronym stands for right? Special Weapons And Tactics. When that “Wheep! wheep wheep!” blared on the screen you knew it was time for action!

I can remember running around the neighborhood imitating T.J’s leap while toting my own toy M-16. A school friend and I even wrote (what must have been fairly horrible) scripts for the show when we were nine-years-old. One thing we can all agree on, the show had one of the best theme songs of all time. I even bought a 45 of this back in’76 when the tune hit #1 on the charts. Enjoy.

S.W.A.T. ran for two seasons over 1975 and ’76. Here’s your cast list:
Steve Forrest as “Hondo”
Rod Perry as “Deacon” (or just “Deke”)
Robert Urich as “Street”
Mark Shera as “Luca”
and James Coleman as “T.J.”
