The Ballad of F Troop (Excerpt)
The end of the Civil War was near
When quite accidentally
A hero who sneezed abruptly seized
Retreat and reversed it to victory …

Welcome to Fort Courage

Home of F Troop

If you take a left at the rock that looks like a bear, and a right at the bear that looks like a rock, you’ll end up at Fort Courage, home of television’s beloved sitcom, F Troop.

Politically incorrect by modern standards—the F Troop theme song includes the words paleface and redskinF Troop symbolizes a simpler time when television shows were allowed to laugh at race and religion without fear of reprisals. None of the regular Indian characters were played by Native American actors.

Indeed, many of the Hekawis were played by veteran Yiddish comedians employing classic Yiddish shtick. Most notably, Medicine Man Roaring Chicken was portrayed by legendary actor and voiceover talent Edward Everett Horton.

Jane Loves Wilton

Captain Parmenter and Wrangler Jane

Melody Patterson was only 16 when she auditioned for the part of Wrangler Jane, not really expecting to get the job. She and her mother didn’t tell the producers her real age until just before shooting started.

That’s why in the first season while Jane pursues Wilton Parmenter at every conceivable opportunity, he never returns a kiss. By the second season, Melody had turned 18 and Wilton was allowed to be a bit more affectionate.

Chief Wild Eagle
(On How the Hekawi Got their Name)
Many moons ago tribe move west because Pilgrims ruin neighborhood. Tribe travel west, over country and mountains and wild streams. Then come big day … tribe fall over cliff. That when Hekawi get name. Medicine man say to my ancestor, ‘I think we lost. Where the heck are we?’

I’ll never forget what Edward Everett Horton said to me: “Promise me, Larry, you will never grow old.” I’ve tried my best to use that advice.
