The "stars" of this military farce were the gallant incompetents of F Troop at Fort Courage, somewhere west of the Missouri, in post-Civil War days. The CO was the wide-eyed, bumbling Capt. Parmenter, who had been promoted from private during the closing days of the war when he accidentally led a charge in the wrong direction - toward the enemy. Unbeknownst to the captain, Sgt. O'Rourke had already negotiated a secret - and highly profitable - treaty with the Hekawi Indians, from whom he also had an exclusive franchise to sell their souvenirs to tourists. There was no peace treaty with the Shugs, however, and they sometimes caused trouble. Cpl. Agarn was O'Rourke's chief aide and assistant schemer, and Wrangler Jane the hard-riding, fast-shooting cowgirl who was out to marry Parmenter.

A lot of colorful Indians and others passed through this series in special appearances, including Roaring Chicken (Edward Everett Horton); 147-year-old Flaming Arrow (Phil Harris); Bald Eagle (Don Rickles); Wise Owl (Milton Berle), an Indian detective; Sgt. Ramsden (Paul Lynde), a single mountie; and Wrongo Starr (Henry Gibson), a jinxed cavalry trooper.
