Many CHiPs fans love the Halloween episode from 1982. The episode, titled “Rock Devil Rock,” follows guest star Don Most who plays Moloch, a character inspired by Gene Simmons of Kiss. It was directed by John Astin, who played Gomez Addams in The Addams Family.
In the episode, Moloch is wearing Kiss inspired makeup and outfit and is performing at a concert. He sings lyrics about the devil which turns out to be a big mistake! Ponch and Bobby are security guards and escort Moloch to his car at the end of the show. His car begins to play a tape that says, “Moloch must die” and spins out of control.
