Reno 911! (2003-present)
In this fictional adaptation of Cops!, Thomas Lennon plays loser Lt. Jim Dangle, leader of the incompetent Reno police department. Lt. Dangle, who favors a hot pants version of the traditional policeman's uniform, is also the primary member of the Reno PD bicycle patrol. The running joke is that Lt. Dangle is forever having his bicycle stolen from him in the course of duty. Comedy Central even has a little on-line game called Reno 911!: Petty Theft Bicycle, in which you get try to keep away from the Reno PD after stealing Lt. Dangle's bicycle from outside the doughnut shop.
