You Know the Voice(s): Bill Woodson, Larry Storch, & Pat Harrington, Jr. (F-Troop, 1966)

Bill Woodson makes his 2nd appearance on F-Troop as the Secretary of War, but that's not the whole story.

In "Spy, Counterspy, Counter Counterspy", the Secretary sends a counter-intelligence agent (Abbe Lane) to Fort Courage. However, a rogue agent named B. Wise (Pat Harrington, Jr., who was doing The Inspector at the time) has arrived ahead of her to try to gain the confidence of Captain Parmenter (Ken Berry). Harrington is doing his best impersonation of Don Adams as Maxwell Smart, since Get Smart, like F-Troop, was a 1st year series during the 1965-6 season, albeit on NBC.

Poor Agarn (Larry Storch) winds up the guinea pig for a top secret experiment, but we're getting ahead of ourselves........

Harrington's hammy, over the top performance actually makes Adams look like an Emmy winner......
