Kojak was an action/crime television show that aired on CBS in the United States from 1973 to 1978, and ran for a total of 118 episodes from October 24, 1973 to March 18, 1978.


The show was apparently being shown in reruns in California in 1986, which Biff Tannen had watched.

When Biff was left bald as a result of being caught in Dr. Emmett Brown's inertial buoyancy displacement convector in Hill Valley woods on the night of May 11, he explained his new look to George McFly the following day as "just tryin' a little Kojak thing for the summer" — a reference to actor Telly Savalas, who played the show's title character, Lieutenant Theodore "Theo" Kojak. However, George didn't think the "tough-guy look" suited Biff.
