Storyline

This short-lived series tried to apply the ideals of the '60s youth culture to the American Revolution. Jeremy Larkin, Isak Poole, Henry Abington and Elizabeth Coates were members of "the Yankee Doodle Society", a rebel group based in Chester, Pennsylvania in 1777. Reporting directly to General Lafayette, the team operated as spies behind British lines. Jeremy was the son of Chester's Tory mayor, who hid his political ideas behind a facade of disinterested pacifism. Elizabeth was a liberated woman ahead of her time and Isak was an ex-slave. The brains of the group was Henry, a big fan of Benjamin Franklin (whom he resembled), and always able to invent whatever device or scheme the group needed to finish their missions.

I loved THE YOUNG REBELS!
30 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a young teen and history buff, I loved THE YOUNG REBELS and recall not wanting to miss one episode when it aired in the 1970s. I somehow was able to watch every First Run episode as I don't think any were repeated before its cancellation. Watching first run episodes of any show in 1970 was tricky as you had to plan to be home for it! Unlike today, when you can watch it on Hulu or buy it on DVD. I was able to videotape all but 2 episodes off the old CBN Channel, but they infuriated me when they edited out the main title sequence and substituted their own 4-second "banner" title sequence to allow more commercial time to air during the broadcast. At least the end credits were intact as I loved the robust, upbeat Yankee Doodle-like music score. The other thing I loved about this show was its serious nature. Unlike shows of today, there was no stupid witty banter between its characters. The 2 paperback novels based on this series were good reads as well.
