Fans of Late Night with Conan O'Brien are familiar with the hilarious Pale Force cartoons that feature comedian Jim Gaffigan and O'Brien as very pasty crime fighters. But recently, the series hit a new high with the Law & Order: Pale Face story arc.

While Jim and Conan investigate tanning bed murders, they go to Dick Wolf's barbecue restaurant (picture, top right) to canvas witnesses. Later, we see Lieutenant Van Buren, Detective Lenny Briscoe, ADA Jack McCoy - heck, even Ben Stone makes an apperance.

There are many things we love about L&O: Pale Force, but we think we like the spoofing of L&O cliches the best. The "Hot Assistant DA," witnesses who happen to remember critical pieces of information, Briscoe talking about beating the bottle... oh, we miss you, Jerry Orbach!

Watch Pale Force: Law & Order. Gaffigan voices all the characters and co-writes the episodes with Paul Noth, who also directs and draws the cartoon. The music is by Patrick Noth, Paul's brother.
