Sunday Funnies: A F-Troop Memorial (1965-66)

Over the past week, two long-lived stars who'd made appearances on F-Troop during the first season passed away.

First, there was Bernard Fox, the Welsh actor who was already making recurring appearances on Bewitched, and would soon add Hogan's Heroes to his workload, when he was cast as "The Phantom Major":



The final scene with Wrangler Jane & Captain Parmenter on a undercover date was priceless.

Then, over the last 48 hours at least, we bade farewell to Zsa Zsa Gabor, who passed away at 99. (Fox was 82) Zsa Zsa turned up in "Play, Gypsy, Play":



What helped both episodes was the yeoman's work, of course, of Larry Storch (Agarn), who should've earned an Emmy nomination at least.

Rest in peace, folks.
