Thanks for posting this. A real treat to watch.
I sped here after searching for this. Old Little Feat fan here. Doodah! And thanks, Zubes!
I used to get so mad at these shows for making fun of my music! I still do!!!
Oh My Lord, I remember this episode. So that’s Lowell and Ritchie! This one is worth five hoots!!!
Wow, thanks – that was long-forgotten!
Reminds me of the Gilligan’s Island episode that ran a couple years earlier and had a rock and roll band show up on the Island (The Mosquitos). Both episodes ended with the cast forming their own rock and roll band. Also similar plots on The Munsters and a few others of the period. The fact this happens in the Old West really is hilarious.
this must have been when they were just hanging around waiting for columbus.
“We call ourselves the Bedbugs”
and they rock.
I love F-Troop
and Lowell and Richie.

The old beginning was better with the cannon shooting the lookout tower.
The Bedbugs fukn rawk!!! So does Calamity Jane
Total Hoot – Great Post
hey, does anyone know if there is a clip around of Calamity Jane doing “Mr. Tamborine Man”. it’s a gas1
Try “Hogan’s Heros” same formula writing.
F Troop was no ordinary western as it poked fun of the Beatles, The famous eating scene in “Tom Jones” was parodied, and things in the news of the day. It was a parody of “Fort Apache” type films also.
F Troop was one unique show! I do not think any other show came close to it!
i never heard of this show.stumbled on this watching a rutles video.
it was the in thing to do at the hight of beatle mania to put beatle spoof groups or do one in these 60s shows that are now TV’s most celebrated classics.
Hi, I’m making a biography of sorts on Lowell and I’m wondering if you might steer me in the direction of this (Or any) Lowell footage.
Wicked- Richie Hayward looks the same! I wonder what was going through Lowell’s mind at the time…
How is it these guys can play an electric guitar when electricity wasn’t invented until another 40+ years after the Civil War???
These cats is cool. F Troop was so much cooler than Mama’s Family.
*they were ALWAYS sticking a fake-Beatles act into these sixties shows. Pretty cool. Donno if I ever saw this one.
