Notes

Tito and J.P. on the job.

  • On Sesamstrasse, the German co-production of Sesame Street, the mice were dubbed by the original German dubbing voices of Don Johnson and Philip Michael Thomas (Reet Reeins and Lutz Mackensy respectively). Sesame Street and Miami Vice were both dubbed in the same studio, Studio Hamburg, where the Sesamstrasse live segments were also shot.
