I was 11 when I watched this series and was an instant fan, I haven't seen or heard of it since. I too loved Combat! and felt Garrison's Gorillas was a perfect follow-up because of it's sense of humor which was welcomed at that time. I loved Goniff's irreverence, Actor's suaveness and I had a crush on Chief. It's true Ron Harper was a little wooden and I viewed him almost as background support, but make no mistake, he had control of his men and I think the others respected him. I recall the first few episodes included Telly Sevales (cashing in on his Dirty Dozen character), but I didn't feel he quite fit in and was glad he left in short order. Bottom line, these were fun and action packed. I even remember having a Garrison's Gorillas coloring book!
