Trivia

The original plan was for Operation Petticoat to run as a one-hour series. They shot a 2-hour pilot movie, and several one-hour scripts were written. Then ABC had second thoughts and decided it would work better in a half-hour format. The first script (after the pilot) was shot as written and shown in two parts, allowing time for the other scripts to be rewritten. See more »

While a lot of people are familiar with the John Astin version most don't even realize there was a second season with an entirely new cast and many new characters. I loved the Astin version when I was a kid but don't even remember Season Two.

It's hard to picture Montooth's Bender replacing Lt. Holden.

Nor does it seem to have the same humor and the Pink Submarine bit was getting rather old.

Worse they turned the Sub from a combat sub into a glorified hospital ship.

They should have let it go when the first cast was cut.
