Sidekicks is a crime drama that aired on ABC.

Sergeant Jake Rizzo is chosen by Sabasan as tutor of his grandson Ernie Lee, the last heir of an antique clan of special martial artists and a highly trained karate fighter.

Through the series, Ernie tends to often get into dangerous situations where bullies at school or in the streets of Los Angeles threaten him or his friends, or in dangerous situations where his adoptive father ends up needing his help after criminals which he has captured try to escape or try to harm him. With help of his quick moves, unique powerful skills and the clever advice of his deceased grandfather, Ernie manages every time to overcome all of the dangerous situations he gets into and manages to overwhelm his opponents.
