    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.

    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.

  18. Tazzman says:

    F Troop was one unique show! I do not think any other show came close to it!

  19. koslow88 says:

    i never heard of this show.stumbled on this watching a rutles video.

  20. frostarian1 says:

    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.

  21. Brybri says:

    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.

  22. mojoryno says:

    Wicked- Richie Hayward looks the same! I wonder what was going through Lowell’s mind at the time…

  23. Stoned69 says:

    How is it these guys can play an electric guitar when electricity wasn’t invented until another 40+ years after the Civil War???

  24. regusted says:

    These cats is cool. F Troop was so much cooler than Mama’s Family.

  25. mowm88 says:

    *they were ALWAYS sticking a fake-Beatles act into these sixties shows. Pretty cool. Donno if I ever saw this one.
