Although many viewers thought the Japanese bomber pilot "Washing Machine Charlie" was fictitious, he existed, and was mentioned in William Manchester's memoir of the Pacific War, "Goodbye Darkness". He was also mentioned on McHale's Navy (1962). See more »
At the beginning of the episodes a newsreel would be shown usually as a way to introduce the subject of that episode's story. The copyright date on the newsreel was MCMXXXIX (1939), which would have been at least two years before the U.S. entered the war. See more »
I loved the "Corsairs" as long as I can remember. I was so disappointed when the Black Sheep series ended I never watched network television again. Pro football was the only network programming I would watch. Then cable came and most recently The History Channel has aired the Black Sheep. I taped as many as I could. Then came my computer and I still haven't watched a network program for over 20 some odd years. I know NBC don't miss me. I don't miss NBC either. God Bless Pappy Boyington. May you rest in peace.
