77 Sunset Strip was an American private eye show by Warner Bros that played on British TV from 1958 to 1964. The programme starred Efrem Zimbalist Jr as Stu Bailey, Roger Smith as Jeff Spencer and Edd Byrnes as the ultra-cool Gerald Lloyd Kookson III (Kookie). Set in Hollywood, the private eyes worked out of office 77 on Sunset Strip.
