The 21 Jump Street TV show was a police drama series on the FOX Network for its first four seasons and in syndication for the final season. It was about a squad of undercover police officers. What set this show apart from others was the fact that the officers were all youthfull looking enough to pass for high school or college students. This allowed them to investigate crimes like date rape, parental abuse, school violence, teenage drug usage and others where an older looking officer would never be able to fit into the crowd.

21 Jump Street Trivia
The 21 Jump Street TV show was the very first FOX Network series to air on that new network's very first night!
The Dennis Booker character was going to be killed off at the end of the third season. When he proved to be extremely popular with audiences, the Fox Network not only kept Richard Grieco's role alive, they also gave him his own spin-off series titled, "Booker"!
21 Jump Street was broadcast on all FOX Network stations at the same time for only its first four seasons. For its fifth season, each individual station decided if and when to run the show. The airdates listed below are the dates that most stations aired it.
It's almost impossible to believe how amazing Johnny Depp's career has bloomed since the end of 21 Jump Street. At the time this is being written (summer 2009) Johnny has 19 projects in one stage of development or another including remakes of "Alice in Wonderland", "Dark Shadows", "Happy Days", "The Incredible Mr. Limpet", and "The Lone Ranger"!. And don't worry! There's a "Pirates of the Caribbean 4" in the works too! The guy is a working dynamo!
Theme Song Lyrics
Title: "21 Jump Street"
By: "Liam Stemberg"
We never thought we'd find a place where we belong.
Don't have to stand alone, we'll never let you fall.
Don't need permission to decide what you believe.
I said jump, down on Jump Street.
I said jump, down on Jump Street.
Your friends will be there when your back is to the wall.
You'll find you'll need us cause there's no one else to call.
When it was hopeless a decision's what you need.
You'd better be ready to, be ready to jump.
