I’ve never seen this show but this “Kookie” guy immediately made me think of Johnny Bravo.
Looking up some info on the show reveals this gem on Wikipedia:
Efrem Zimbalist, Jr.:
"We previewed this show, and because Edd Byrnes was such a hit we decided that Kookie and his comb had to be in our series. So this week, we’ll just forget that in the pilot he went off to prison to be executed."
