Ch56 here in los angeles was showing this on weekends along with Combat. It didn’t last long before they took both shows off…I guess the ratings were bad.
I always thought this show was pretty cool.
@cessnaace A local museum advertised that they were showing on the waterfront i asked if they had a video tape they said that they were going to project a 16mm print on the wall is that ok i said is that ok thats great what a blast
how ironic that the only tv show about the north african theatre was brought to you by Camel cigs
Where’s Justin Tarr?
@birdmanofbooze -”It is amazing that relatively shortly after WWII, they could screw up the equipment and uniforms so badly….”

@cessnaace Do you remember the time during the ’88 Olympics in primetime that WSET lost the network and had to run “THE RAT PATROL”? I remember Jeff Taylor came on camera to explain what had happened and then they went to the film. I was much disappointed when they never got a chance to finish the story because about twenty minutes later, Channel 13 regained the signal.
I worked for a TV station in the 80s that would run this show, but only if there were a technical problem with another show. Most of what we ran was on 16mm film. We always kept an episode of The Rat Patrol handy, in case of problems. Chances were, just as soon as we’d begin running the opening to The Rat Patrol, in would come the chief engineer wanting to know what the problem was. lol.
The Camel Cigarette “billboard” announcer sounds more like CBS & Desilu announcer Roy Rowan, not really Fred Foy who did indeed announce the ABC Radio version of Lone Ranger and many other ABC Radio and ABC-TV shows over the decades.
@RobARug The announcer is fred foy who did the lone ranger the dick cavett show and the very intense trailer to dr.Zhivago
@userjoe1020 Realistically, if one were to remake episodes of “THE RAT PATROL”, it would be highly likely that Miley Cyrus would portray the part that Christine Longet originally played. Albeit, her French accent might not be as good!
@chuckcollins Everyone here is Old. Let’s talk about Hannah Montanna.
@edybeast He was typecast so he changed his name he also did combat
