"McHale's Navy" is one of my guilty pleasures. This 1960 buddy
comedy military sitcom aired on ABC from 1962-1966 and starred Ernest
Borgnine, Joe Flynn, Tim Conway, Carl Ballantine, Gary Vinson, Billy
Sands, Edson Stroll, Gavin MacLeod, John Wright and Bob Hastings and
produced at Universal Studios. When visiting Universal in the mid
1960s I got to stand on the bridge of the PT 73 that was used in rear
projection of the ocean scenes, and saw one of the PT boats used in the
series. Here is the complete pilot show as seen on ABC and
locally on WTVP and WTVH in central Illinois on October 11, 1962.
"Broadsides" was the "sister" series of "McHale's Navy"
that ran on ABC during the 1964-65 season. It was also produced
by the creator of McHale's Navy, Edward J. Montagne. This
military comedy sit com starred Kathy Nolan, Edward Andrews, Dick
Sargeant, Lois Roberts, Sheila James, Joan Staley, Jimmy Boyd and
Arnold Stang. You might not remember or have heard of this one,
but I think you might like it. This is a complete episode....
