As played by Mario Van Peebles, Sonny Spoon was a private detective with an eye for the ladies (and vice versa). People in legal places who seamed to tolerate him, then throw in a few lowlife informers; You know that still certainly doesn't sound original. But as not so often the case, the results WERE GREAT, & How it came about didn't matter so much as how the finished product looked.
Thanks to lightly amusing scripts and likeable acting - plus a pleasing tendency to treat disabled people like regular people rather than sentimental crutches (a trait shared with "Wiseguy") - "Sonny Spoon" was one of the more entertaining private-eye shows out there. Too bad Mario Van Peebles, And this fledgling series, wasn't given more than a 15 Episode chance to make it work, I think it would have.
"Now I want this understood - I control the film, video and television rights to this entire story..." Was always a quote from Sonny to the press & all concerned.
