"Hooperman" is a U.S. television series starring John Ritter. It ran for two seasons on ABC, from 1987 to 1989. A comedy-drama, the series was created by Steven Bochco and Terry Louise Fisher who were the team responsible for creating "L.A. Law".

Ritter played San Francisco plainclothes police officer "Harry Hooperman". In the first episode, Hooperman inherits the rundown apartment building he lives in when his elderly landlady is killed. He also inherits her temperamental pet Jack Russell terrier, Bijoux. Due to the demands of his job as a police officer, he hires Susan Smith (played by Debrah Farentino) to be the building manager, and the pair become romantically involved.

Also starring on the show was Alix Elias as the cheerful and bubbly police dispatcher, Betty Bushkin; Barbara Bosson was Hooperman's divorced superior, Capt. Celeste "C.Z." Stern; Harry's partner, Inspector Clarence McNeil (Felton Perry); Clarence Felder as redneck inspector Boris "Bobo" Pritzger; Joseph Gian as Rick Silardi, a gay cop, and Sydney Walsh as officer Maureen "Mo" DeMott, his patrol partner intent on "saving" him from being gay by making unwanted passes. Dan Lauria (later of the series, "The Wonder Years") played Celeste's former husband, Lou Stern.

Like Bochco's other hit series' "Hill Street Blues" and "L.A. Law", the theme music was composed by Mike Post who would also go on to compose the theme for Bochco's 90s hit series "NYPD Blue".
