Genre: Comedy, Crime
Premise: ``Stroker and Hoop'' is an animated satire of '70s cop shows like ``Starsky & Hutch.'' Though it takes place currently (mid-2000s, when it first aired), the title characters act and dress in 1970s style and are detectives in Los Angeles. Stroker Strockmeyer, a former mattress salesman, likes his PI work because he gets to shoot people. But his partner, Hoop Schwartz, loves the job and never fires a gun intending to hit a target. The two use talking auto CARR, which is 20 years past state of the art. Being mediocre, they take jobs offered by those who can't afford competence.
