Telly Savalas with a lollipop as Kojak

"Who loves ya, baby?" Telly Savalas sucks on a lollipop in his role as Lt. Theo Kojak, the title star of Kojak. The cop drama ran on CBS-TV from 1973-78. The lollipop was one of Kojak's trademarks, along with his bald head, his disco-era suits, and his swingin' catchphrase, "Who loves ya, baby?" Telly Savalas was born in 1922, so he turned 51 the year the show debuted.
