over..... that kit had great box art.

I can only recall one episode and that was from syndication on a blurry UHF
channel in the mid 70s. I thought it was the coolest - the Germans and the
Rats joined forces to rescue a Bedouin Jessica McClure from one of the
watering holes. All these years I've had it in my mind how cool it will be
to revisit that episode and finally get to check out the entire series...
... And then I got to see an episode last year. Ed Asner as a German medic -
stop tape! Eject. I thought it better to stop there and leave the memory
of the Bedouin child episode 30 years in the past and with a smile.
Definitely kid's play, but I'd prefer my kids (if I had any) to watch RP
than some of the crap that passes for children's entertainment these days.
As for the adults, I've caught an episode of "Combat!" here and there over
the years - it has held up rather well over time. Especially for a 60s era
I thought "The Rat Patrol" had one of the coolest theme songs of any TV
show in the '60s era.
The music CD "Television's Greatest Hits, Vol.2: From the 50's and
60's" has "The Rat Patrol" and the "12 O'clock High" theme songs on it.
