Though light on historical accuracy, 'F Troop' is heavy on slapstick humor and gags of all varieties. After accidentally turning the tide in an America Civil War battle, private Wilton Parmenter (Ken Berry) is elevated to the rank of captain and made commanding officer of remote Kansas outpost Fort Courage. There, the naive commander is constantly duped by the scheming of his non-commissioned officers, Sergeant Morgan O'Rourke (Forrest Tucker) and Corporal Randolph Agarn (Larry Storch), who are in cahoots with local Indian tribe the Hekawis, engaging in illegal business dealings known as "O'Rourke Enterprises."
