As if Don Johnson's Sonny Crockett character couldn’t get any cooler on Miami Vice, he also owned a pet alligator named Elvis that he lived with on his houseboat. If that doesn’t sound like a sweet bachelor pad then we don’t know what is.

Elvis was tasked with watching the houseboat while his cop owner was on duty. But instead of actually doing his job, Elvis would often sleep, eat bags of dog food, or spend his time devouring Crockett’s collection of Buddy Holly records.

Unfortunately, towards the end of the series, Elvis inexplicably disappeared and was never mentioned again. Don Johnson always had such nice boots on the show, though. Makes us wonder what they were made of.
