This video is part of an ongoing project to build a retrospective TV archive made exclusively for the LL community on my Retro TV channel at
The Rat Patrol was originally broadcast between 1966 and 1968 with 58 episodes. The title of the show was derived from some of the British commonwealth forces nicknames in North Africa like the Desert Rats or the Rats of Tobruk
They did a respectable job putting the complete series in a DVD collection. Worth the investment whether you're just a casual viewer, a fan of the show or a die hard collector. I recommend it. As far as I know there were 8 books and 1 comic series based on the show also.
Amusing bit of trivia. In order for Mirisch-Rich Television Productions to gain the upper hand in bargaining leverage after the first successful season, each major star was shown a separate script where their character was killed in action. So the actors couldn't bargain for pay raises.
