    Does anyone know who has the rights to this or who we should harass to get this out. Or maybe a better question is does anyone remember this series but me. One of my favorite shows as a kid. I loved Hogans Heroes too.

    Well if Ben,Jerry and I are the only ones who want it than we will probably never see them I guess.

    Nah, we'll just have to pool our efforts, buy the rights, and release the darn thing ourselves! [​IMG] So, have ya got any good links to Rat Patrol sites Jeff?
    And Jerry, I don't recall Combat off the top of my head, but I bet I might if I saw it. Got a site for that one?

    Oh you guys struck a long dormant urge in me. I loved those series. Wasn't Combat on on Monday nights and Rat Patrol on Fridays?

    I love both these shows also..In fact Here in Canada Combat is on everday at 5 pm On the History channel..It would be quite a DVD set ..over 150 1 hr episodes.
    Heres a few things to refresh your memories:
    Vic Morrow- Sgt. Saunders
    Rick Jason - Lt. Hanley
    Jack Hogan- Kirby (Carried the B.A.R.)
    ??-Cage ( Wore Beret,spoke French)
    ??- Doc (Morphine Anyone?)
    ?? Littlejohn (Big Guy)
    All kinds of guest stars..Charles Bronson,Frank Gorshin,Keenan Wynn, Tom Skerritt,Mickey Rooney, Lee Marvin,James Coburn,Leonard Nimoy,Warren Oates,Hans Gudegast (from Rat Patrol-AKA Victor Newman)...The list goes on & on
    As far as Rat Patrol goes I have a bunch on tape (off TV) but haven't watched them in a Long time...Guess I'll dig one out now [​IMG]

    Anyway back to topic
    Bring on the DVD's ..I'd buy them in a Heartbeat
