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 »

A funny side of the war, 6 August 1999
Author: Andy Sporner (asporner@ne.mediaone.net) from Boston, Massachussets

This movie is one of the few that show what can happen on a submarine full of unlikely sailors (included the nurses). This is not unlike the TV series CPO Sharkey and the movie "Down Periscope"

I would like to see this TV series in another language such as the German version mentioned above
