From 1st episode
I love this show!!! It was so funny when I was a kid.
My GG Grandfather was in the 1st Indiana Cavalry during the Civil War. A diary described him as a man who fell off his horse into the river and was sometimes “in the corn.” Another man described an officer as a “walking shithouse.” And this was a good unit!

This theme song was put together by the same man “Milt Franklin” who put together Warner Bros. second and final generation of it’s original Cartoons after Carl Stalling passed away: Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Roadrunner-Wile E. Coyote, etc., etc…………..also it was probably one of the very last if not last theme song’s at Warner’s or any other Hollywood Studio that used it’s own in studio Orchestra. The following years saw the end to studio’s having their own orchestra!
