After 40+ years, They're back. The whole crazy bunch of misfits of Fort Courage return and they are funnier than ever.

Capt. Parmenter, Sgt. O'Rourke, Cpl. Agarn, Wrangler Jane, Chief Wild Eagle, Crazy Cat, and Troopers Hannibal Dobbs, Duffy, Hoffenmueller and Vanderbilt provide the laughs while parodying life between the soldiers of Fort Courage and the Hekawi Indian tribe.

It appears we have a nicely packaged set with single-sided picture discs containing all 34 episodes from season one. A great job from the good folks at the Warner Bros.!

I loved this show as a kid and I love it now. When I was a kid, this show was good clean stupid fun and I was a good clean stupid kid. Now I love it because it's good clean stupid fun in a world where sit-coms are crass, dirty, and most of the humor is pornographic in nature.

The reason that F-Troop works is that it had a great cast with great chemistry and timing. There was a lot of repetitive slapstick humor, maybe too much, but there were veteran actors making that humor happen.

Also, the sets were expansive for a sit-com. You had an entire fort, a western town, and an indian camp with not very politically correct indians. (In fact, the sheer non-PC part of the show is something I enjoy as an adult. This show probably couldn't have been made today.)

And, there were just a lot of people in the show. There were many supporting actors among the F-troopers and the indians, just a lot of people involved to interact with the main characters. Contrast this to so many sit-coms that for the most part take place in a living room or a restaurant, or a living room and a restuarant, but not much more.

The humor is probably a bit repetitive and I don't see myself watching more than one or two episodes in a sitting, but I'm thrilled to have this show back in my life in glorious DVD resolution. When my morale droops, I watch F-Troop.

I purchased the 6 episode "TV Favorites" version of F Troop and it only whetted my appetite for full season releases. This was my favorite show in the mid-sixties. It is hilarious with a great cast and a list of guest stars that's a Who's Who of that long ago TV era: Milton Berle, Vincent Price, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Paul Lynde, Harvey Korman, Charley Weaver, Don Rickles etc., etc. Be forewarned though! There is no "message", no "social relevance" and there was never a "very special F Troop" episode. Buy it!!! So they will quickly release Season 2!!

I bought this for my ten year-old son because I would rather he watch "good wholesome comedy" than most of the shows on TV today. He loves it and wanted me to write "it's the best comedy since Giligan's Island!" The antics, humor, and story lines make me wish there were more shows like this that the whole family can enjoy.

First, I waited YEARS for this show to be on DVD. it was a Hold-out for some reason onto DVD. They finally released all of Season 1, in order on DVD. Unfortunately there are no extras at all, and there are no 'chapter" breaks in the episodes 9that really sucks). The episodes are in generally excellent shape and its GREAT to see them UNCUT (all of the TV prints on Nikelodeon or syndication were edited by 3-5 minutes!). The first season is the BEST of the two seasons for one reason--MORE HEKAWI INDIANS!!

I love the HEKAWIS--they are the funniest Indians I've ever seen on TV. Mel brooks STOLE a lot of this for BLAZING SADDLES. Even better, the first season features the great actor Edward Everett Horton as The Medicine man, Screaming Chicken ("Somebody sick, Need soup"). He's hilarious! he didn't sign on for the second season. Now, the show has elaborate sets for a SIT-COM. They used the old (now demolished) Warner Back lot for Fort Courage and the Town. They used 35mm film, stuntmen, horse wranglers, guns, and an entire second set for "The Hekawi" tribe. Most of the show was shot "on-location" which in todays world would cost millions. When you combine the prohibitive costs of the show and the politcally incorrent , but funny as all hell Indians..this isa show that will never be duplciated. The negatives are the DVD box set has absolutely NOTHING but the episodes on it and the episodes feature the same "gags" and "O "Rourke Enterprises" stories over and over...but there are some truly funny bits and gems in this series. I hope season two has some extras!! PS---I bet none of you know this---but in the original broadcasts of this show in 1965--during the first 13 episodes---there were LYRICS TO THE CLOSING ENDE CREDITS!!
