Did You Know?


In the book "Creating the Filmation Generation", Lou Scheimer recounts that Larry Storch was a connoisseur of fine liquors and Forrest Tucker a hard drinking man. As part of their contracts, Storch wanted two gallon jugs of white wine any time they shot, and Tucker a case of beer. After two weeks, Tucker wanted Jack Daniels instead of beer. Lou said "They would start out drunk and get sober by the end of the shoot". See more »

12 September 2003 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Larry Storch and Forrest Tucker did a wonderful job on F Troop. It is a cult comedy classic and they were as good as Bud Abbott and Lou Costello when it came to comic chemistry. This show holds a special place in my heart. I remember watching it as an eight year old and it brought me a lot of laughter and enjoyment. I watched it on Saturday morning cartoons (a golden memory of my childhood in West Virginia) and I also watched Far Out Space Nuts with Bob Denver and Chuck McCann. Storch and Tucker were a couple of bumbling ghost busters who had a guy in a gorilla suit as a partner. The thing I remembered was always the spoof of Mission Impossible that they did where they got blown up every time. Kids need innocent, fun programming like this now more then ever before and I wish they would put this show back so that new generations can have some good and innocent laughs as well. It was only a few years ago that I saw a video of this show in a Blockbuster at Fort Riley, Kansas. It has been so unfairly forgotten. Larry Storch and Forrest Tucker both served our country well in World War II. Tucker served in the Army and Larry Storch was a Navy submariner. They are heroes in real life as well as on the screen. I write to celebrities as a hobby and wrote to Mister Storch recently. I praised his fine services to our nation and he sent me a beautiful signed picture he said "To Sergeant David Tucker, thank you for the greatest letter I have ever recieved".
