Trivia:
Many viewers have thought that because "Old Charlie" the town drunk would usually be thrown through the saloon doors (or window), bounce off a support post, fall face forward over the hitching rail, spin around and land on his face or back in three episodes, he was actually a young stuntman in "old man" makeup. In reality "Charlie" was ace stuntman Harvey Parry, who at that time was 65 years old and had been a stuntman for almost 45 years.See more »
Goofs:
Incorrectly regarded as goofs: James Hampton's character, Bugler Hannibal Dobbs, is a Texan serving in the United States Army immediately after the Civil War. Although white males from Reconstruction (formerly Confederate) states were under a blanket suspicion of treason at the time, many non-conformists proved loyalty by fighting for the Union during the War. It's possible that Dobbs was one of these.See more »

This wonderful comedy show should have been on longer., 19 November 2004
Author: nlstock from Australia

F-Troop is the kind of classic comedy show that should have been on for many years. It makes you want to kick the people that canceled it. I read that fans at the time wrote in letters to keep it alive,but unfortunately the foolish television executives canceled this fine show after only two seasons. Season one(B&W)went for 34 episodes and season two(color)of F-Troop went for 31 episodes for a total of 65 thirty minute episodes,and classic comedy episodes they are. Ken Berry(Captain Parmenter)used his dance training to fine effect in the many comedy stunts that he did. He also appeared in the Andy Griffith show and also had his own show after F-Troop finished. Ken then went and did a lot of Disney tele-movies and TV shows like The Love Boat and Fantasy Island,but F-Troop was his best show by far. I hope that this series gets to DVD as I will be first in line to by the two box sets.
