    @blkchk it might have been reported as suicide initially because of his age

    but like alot of gay men back in the day, he had a terrible drinking problem…which did affect his health

    i do agree, he wasnt the happiest of people…which is sad, because he brought so much joy to others…one of the greatest comedic actors of our time

    @brabon1 You know what’s weird…I remember it being reported as suicide. I checked on the web just now and although Wikipedia and other sources agree with you it seems a lot of people think the same thing. Maybe it was the way it was reported at the time. I remember I was upset. Either way, he’s gone but still making people laugh.

  3. brabon1 says:

    @blkchk he had a heart attack…the man partied way too much

    i think what is sad, is that most people knew that he was gay, yet he had to stay closeted during all of his career

  4. blkchk says:

    Paul Lynde was hysterical. Too bad he was so sad in real life…committed suicide.

    wow this is good quality footage

  16. ComedyFilm says:

    “Lucky Pierre”…Paul Lynde could get away with just about anything on TV.

  17. litlgrey says:

    I agree with jimtypes. The opening was extremely long for the time.

    DAMN! Why can’t American comedy be like this now… you know… over the top funny!

    Wow, I remember watching the reruns on nick at night when I was young…. I wish TV Land would do JUST the old tv shows and stop taking nick at night’s old line up.
    F Troop, Get Smart, I Dream of Jeanie, The Munsters, Mork and Mindy… all the good shows ^.^

  19. magprob says:

    Man that is good. I forgot how good. I never missed an episode when I was a kid. Larry Storch was animated, almost like a cartoon!

  20. jimtypes says:

    That’s got to be one of the longest set ups before the opening credits ever (for the time period)

  21. moco635 says:

    One of my favorite episodes of F Troop.I watched this show every weekday before my mother called my brothers and I upstairs from our basement for dinner!! Great memories & outstanding quality mon ami!!!!

  22. LordOfNothingham says:

    I went to the larry storch acting school

  23. Valizan says:

    “We always get our man…” Oh Paul…

  24. imjunipernow says:

    I love the way they did “doubles” in the old days. The backs of the fake actor were never quite up to snuff….

  25. keefek says:

    F Troop was one of the funniest shows ever aired. In many ways it was extremely subversive. This episode is almost surrealistic. Paul Lynde is fabulous.
