As great as Gilligan's Island was you can say just the OPPOSITE about Dusty's Trail. It's absolutely AWFUL.

Forrest Tucker was in it but I can't imagine he was proud of it. The irony is I think Bob Denver actually said Dusty's Trail was his favorite show to make. That's the actual acting not the final product. It's still pretty shocking he said that considering how horrid the show was.

Warner Bros. made a BIG mistake in cancelling F-Troop. Had they done a few more seasons, it would have become a syndication staple, like “Hogan’s Heroes”. A classic example of playing the short game, not the long game. I hope whoever was responsible for the decision got fired, because they cost the studio millions.
Totally agree but we're the ratings good for F Troop back when it originally aired?

F Troop is the Funniest Thing I have seen. Unbelievable it only lasted two seasons, and that the marvellous opening scene was not repeated for season 2.

That was good but I like the season 2 opening too IIRC.

The lyrics for the opening tune also went away w/ Season 2, which I think was a shame. I suspect WB didn't want to spend all the $ refilming that opening in color. By 1966, all the Big Three networks, including ABC, required all primetime programming to be in color. ABC'S The Fugitive also as far as I know didn't refilm its stock footage used in the show's opening (train derailment, Kimble falling in the creek) and stuck mostly w/ tinted still images for its Season 4 opening in color.

Why did it last 2 seasons? Because it stunk. It'd last longer if were any good

It's funny that 50 years later no one would really care if they had just kept showing the B&W opening.

I liked the second opening. I think the song works better as an instrumental and the artwork was cool.

The Fugitive only used the footage of the train derailment and the creek in season 1. Starting with season 2, they used still images. I thought it was interesting that they just tinted the same images from seasons 2 and 3 for use in season 4. They only new shot for the season 4 intro was for David Janssen’s credit, a live action shot now in color.
