F Troop - Netflix
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' When pale-face and red-skin both turn chicken; When drilling 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!"
Runtime: 30 minutes

F Troop is a satirical American television sitcom about U.S. soldiers and American Indians in the Wild West during the 1860s that originally aired for two seasons on ABC. It debuted in the United States on September 14, 1965 and concluded its run on April 6, 1967 with a total of 65 episodes. The first season of 34 episodes was broadcast in black-and-white, the second season in color. The series relied heavily on character-based humor; verbal and visual gags, slapstick, physical comedy and burlesque comedy make up the prime ingredients of F Troop. The series played fast and loose with historical events and persons, and often parodied them for comical effect. There were some indirect references made to the culture of the 1960s such as a “Playbrave Club” (a parody of a Playboy Club) and two rock and roll bands (one which performs songs written in the 1960s).
