Sunday Funnies: A blonde Native American? (F-Troop, 1966)

Time to take another trip to Fort Courage for a 2nd season episode of F-Troop.

Sgt. O'Rourke (Forrest Tucker) & Corporal Agarn (Larry Storch) are on a scouting mission. Out of water and thirsty, Agarn begins seeing mirages, but things change when the horses are stolen by an Apache maiden who isn't what she seems.

Turns out that "Yellow Bird" was abducted by the Apaches as a child, and when she leaves behind a clue to her true identity, O'Rourke, Agarn, and Captain Parmenter (Ken Berry) set up a family reunion with her biological father. Good thing, since Yellow Bird has designs on the captain, much to the jealous consternation of Wrangler Jane (Melody Patterson). Julie Newmar swaps her Catwoman jumpsuit from Batman for a Native American dress.

Rating: A-.
