Oops, I forgot to post yesterday! Sorry about that. Let’s end the week by revisiting “Cold Target,” the second of two episodes of The New Mike Hammer in which Timothy portrays reformed criminal Kenny the Knife. It first aired on December 1, 1984. Hammer (Stacy Keach) discovers Kenny leading the hymn singing (yes, Tim sings in this episode, however briefly) at the local gospel mission and enlists his aid as his “man on the street.”
The first episode featuring Kenny was “Satan, Cyanide and Murder” (4.14.84). It’s unfortunate that he didn’t become more of a recurring character; he’s pretty darn funny. Directing this episode was Jon C. Andersen, assistant director of many television shows and feature films, including the Monkees‘ Head (1968), also featuring Tim.
