* SpotTheImposter: Bandit Kid Vicious has tied and gagged his good twin, Captain Parmenter, preventing him from shouting about the switch. However, as the sheriff prepares to take Parmenter away, he trips on the rug [[TheKlutz in a very familiar fashion]]. Sergeant O'Rourke has the gag removed, allowing Parmenter to prove his true identity by correctly identifying Agarn's first name, Dobbs as the company bugler, and Wrangler Jane as his girlfriend.

* AttractiveBentGender: Agarn, dressed as an "Indian maid", to coax the Loco Brothers out of their cave. Made funnier by the fact that Wrangler Jane, an actual woman, had failed in an earlier bid to do the same. Made famous to a new generation by being the clip shown on {{Freakazoid}}. It helped that Agarn learned the Indian Love Dance at a Hekawi party.

Added DiffLines:

* FreudianExcuse: A later episode reveals why Parmenter's always dragged his feet on his relationship with Jane: his father and other men in the family treated families like military units.


Added DiffLines:

* UncannyFamilyResemblance: Agarn's assorted relatives.
* UndyingLoyalty: The troopers to Parmenter. They're all aware of his failings as a commander, but they're loyal because he's such a BenevolentBoss. In one episode, the men get to quit the army on a technicality, but they end up coming back because they feel guilty for leaving Parmenter in the lurch.

Added DiffLines:

* InSeriesNickname: O'Rourke and Agarn often inspire the troops on Parmenter's behalf in the first season by urging them to "Do it for the old man!" Parmenter asks "What old man?" and has to be reminded that O'Rourke is referring to him. It's especially funny considering Parmenter's age relative to the older and more experienced O'Rourke.
** Inverted on one occasion: Parmenter urges his men with "Do it for the old man!" and O'Rourke has to be reminded instead.

* ActuallyNotAVampire: VincentPrice makes an appearance as a spooky immigrant in "V For Vampire". Everyone thinks he's a vampire, except of course Captain Parmenter. His reason? "They're not mentioned in the army manual." Of course, he's not a vampire.

* CaptainErsatz: B. Wise from "Spy, Counter, Counterspy" is essentially Maxwell Smart from ''Series/GetSmart'' in an Old West setting. They even borrow a couple of his [[CatchPhrase Catch Phrases]]. Justified as it would be unlikely for Smart to have time-travel capabilities. [[spoiler:And also averted, as Wise proves to be a traitor.]]
* CastingGag:
** Trooper Duffy (Bob Steele) is an elderly cavalryman who claims to be the sole survivor of the Alamo, and regularly recounts his exploits there. Steele was previously a 1930s and '40s Western movie star, and had once been in a movie about meeting Davy Crockett at the Alamo.
** Sergeant O'Rourke is played by Forrest Tucker, who once portrayed a similar "O'Rourke" Cavalry Sergeant on ''Series/{{Gunsmoke}}''. In real life, he also served as a member of the United States Army Cavalry under George S. Patton.
