The series was translated to Hungarian in the 1970s. The actor who gave his voice to Kojak, László Inke, resembled Telly Savalas so much that a movie was shot in which he actually played Kojak (Kojak Budapesten (1980)). While the original series is in color, the Hungarian film is black and white. Also, according to the film's plot, Kojak was born in Hungary, and had been a very clumsy cop before emigrating.
