Tony and Shep Thomas
Created by Robert Carrington, Robert Specht and Everett Chambers
Hee-Haw's very own Hager twins played twin P.I.s, TONY and SHEP (SHEP!!!) THOMAS, who use their identical twin status to solve a case involving a psychic swindle, a spunky old dame and a murdered medium in 1976 TV pilot Twin Detectives. The pilot flopped, which is, perhaps, something for which we should all give thanks.
Suffice it to say it didn't fare very well with viewers.
By the way, silent movie icon Lillian Gish made her TV movie debut in this piece of crud. Shame, Lilly, shame!
-- Lee Goldberg, on Twin Detecives
A short list of other twin P.I.s.
Unlikely private eyes (No, really...)
