Brass Cupcake, The

Det. Sgt. Dee Dee McCall (Stepfanie Kramer) was an LAPD undercover policewoman on the police drama HUNTER/NBC/1984-91. Although beautiful, brunette and shapely, her tough determined attitude earned her the nickname the “Brass Cupcake” by her fellow male officers.


Dee Dee, however, had a softer side. She enjoyed bubble baths, wearing silk undies and owned a little cute brown teddy bear named Tom Dooley.

She was teamed with Det. Sgt. Rick Hunter (Fred Dryer) whose character was modeled after the movie cop in Dirty Harry (1971) starring Clint Eastwood.

Note: The Brass Cupcake was also the name of a John D. McDonald novel published in 1954 by Fawcett.


Born in Philadelphia, Jerome Alphonse Holst worked 30 years as a librarian. He has since retired and lives in Greensboro, North Carolina. Mr. Holst is also the author of the children’s books “Norman the Troll,” "Norman the Troll and the Haunted House," and "Gretchen and the Gremlins." In addition, he penned the fantasy novel “The Adventures of Glinda Gale,” a retelling of “The Wizard of Oz" and the reference text “The Encyclopedia of Movie and TV Insults.” .
