Sunday Funnies: F-Troop

Young Groove loved F-Troop. It was kinda like McHales Navy (which I also loved), but set in the West. We don't see it much today, probably 'cause it's not "pc", but what the heck! With its (semi)star-studded cast and fall down funny situations, the worst fort in the west lasted for two seasons (September, 1965-April, 1967). Dell also produced seven issues of a comicbook version of F-Troop, which ended around the same time the show ended. Here's a sample from the final issue of F-Troop, Groove-ophiles!
