F Troop

F Troop Cast

Series Description

The F Troop TV show was a 30 minute situation comedy series on ABC about a Private who is given a field promotion to Captain and given command of Fort Courage. The problem is that he got his promotion and command because he accidentally "saved the day" when he led a cavalry charge in the wrong direction. That pretty much continues to be the theme of the show throughout the series run. Captain Parmenter keeps goofing up and comes out smelling like a rose.

Theme Song

Title: "F Troop"

By: "Irving Taylor and William Lava"

The end of the Civil War was near
When quite accidentally,
A hero who sneezed abruptly seized
Retreat and reversed it to victory.

His medal of honor pleased and thrilled
his proud little family group.
While pinning it on some blood was spilled
And so it was planned he'd command F Troop.

Where Indian fights are colorful sights
and nobody takes a lickin'
Where pale face and redskin
Both turn chicken.

When killing and fighting get them down,
They know their morale can't droop.
As long as they all relax in town
Before they resume with a bang and a boom
F Troop.
