Toni's Boys

In 1980, the TV series Charlie's Angels was riding high, so ABC decided to clone the show by making a version featuring three good-looking young men working for a woman boss. It was called Toni's Boys. As you can see, other than the '80s version of good-looking young men, it didn't have much to offer. Why would you recruit an athlete and a cowboy for a private detective agency?

Charlie's Angels were all trained cops. Here's the 1980 show opening so you can compare. The music and the graphics are the same, but Toni's Boys just looked like ABC was trying too hard. The pilot aired in a Charlie's Angels time slot near the end of season four, but the network never picked it up. (via Weird Universe)
