Trivia

During the fourth season, Ross Martin had a heart attack and missed several episodes. In production order, Martin did not appear in episodes 93-101, a total of nine episodes. Charles Aidman appeared in four episodes (93-96). William Schallert appeared in two (97-98). Alan Hale appeared in #99, John Williams in #100, and Steve Carlson in #101. Ross Martin returned in episode #102, "The Night of the Diva", but there were only two more episodes shot after that. See more »

Goofs

Throughout the series various characters mispronounce "cavalry" as "calvary", confusing a pair of near-homonyms with Latin origins. Cavalry means soldiers on horseback. Calvary means an object shaped like a skull. The most (in)famous "place of the skull" (Calvariae Locus in Latin) was a Jerusalem landmark where Jesus Christ and various convicts were crucified during Roman Empire times. See more »

Crazy Credits

The opening credits as originally designed for the pilot (and included on the season 1 DVD) show the animated cowboy knocking down the woman trying to stab him. In the first season as aired, the cowboy kisses the woman, who dreamily turns away instead of trying to stab him. Later episodes reinstated the cowboy knocking the woman down. See more »

An actor's dream and babes galore
27 March 2004 | by (South Florida) – See all my reviews

Looking back at this show after all these years, two things stand out. First, doing this show must have been nirvana for Ross Martin. In almost every episode, he got to change costumes, add makeup, and play a completely new character, usually with a different voice and/or accent. What character actor doesn't dream of that, and what a marvelous talent he was!

Second, when this show first aired, I was going through puberty, so it was probably a big influence - but I cannot recall a TV series that consistently featured, week in and week out, more drop dead gorgeous women than this one did. To the producers I say thank you, thank you, thank you!!
