During the Revolutionary War, Colonel Francis Marion led a string of unconventional campaigns against the British in the Carolinas. His skill at staging raids, then vanishing into the trackless marshes earned him the title "The Swamp Fox." As Marion, Leslie Nielsen lacks Loggia's panache. He's also required to make rather heavy-handed speeches about the rightness of the American cause and its inevitable victory that bring the story to screeching halt. And he always seems to pick the most obtuse members of the British army as targets. Although The Swamp Fox ran for six installments, from October 1959 through January 1961, it was eclipsed by more exciting Disney Americana, notably Texas John Slaughter (1958-1961). (Unrated, suitable for ages 8 and older: violence, alcohol and tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

I think Walt would roll over in his grave if he knew all the terrible shows that Disney produces now (Lizzie, Raven, etc..). Especially since he loved history, old folk-lore, and learning.
I think like Boomerang, Disney should have a "Classic Disney Channel" that only runs tv shows/movies produced before 1985.
a good choice; there is too much missing material. Had hoped for
a complete,unedited release of this Disney classic. This can only be a partial amount of the original.
They only gave us threee episodes of each show!!! In this world of box sets and double sided DVDs this is nothing but a complete RIP OFF.
Now I won't buy the Spin and Marty set and it's unlikey I'll buy another Disney Treasures! Frankly Leonard Maltin should be ashamed of himself for being associated with this ripoff.
I never cared for the Elfego Baca story, I had been known to go to my room and VOLUNTARILY do my homework on Sunday nights when these episodes played, but I would have GLADLY paid the price for this set if it had included ALL of the "Swamp Fox" episodes!
Above and beyond the fact that I am proud to have Francis Marion as a distant relative, and that I hail from the same part of our great country as this hero of the Revolutionary War, who, with his compatriots, probably contributed as much as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, or any of the other Founding Fathers to win us our freedom, I really loved this story just for itself!
Not only have I decided NOT to waste my money on this incomplete set, I have even gone as far as removing it from my "Wish List" to save the funds of my family and friends, as well! I shall wait to see, hopefully, if Disney will ever release the entire "Swamp Fox" story in a complete set, for which I would GLADLY pay their somewhat exorbitant price.
