Sergeant Bilko   1951 Parade Originally known as "You'll Never Get Rich" and then "The Phil Silvers Show," the granddaddy of all military sitcoms was broadcast from 1955 to 1959. Silvers starred as Master Sgt. Ernie Bilko, the con artist supreme who turns Fort Baxter into his personal base of operations for one get-rich-quick scheme after another. Harvey Lembeck, Joe E. Ross, and Maurice Gosfield as Pvt. Doberman were among the members of Bilko's platoon, and Paul Ford played the camp commander. . .

He was a star back then, but there were so many stars back then. If he started his career he would be a superstar because I feel there is a true shortage of the greats!

never watched that, but from the description it sorta sounds like McCale's Navy.

I so agree with you Lambchop and Freckles. Talent like that has almost ceased to exist. And the world is such a different place now, those shows would never go over with today's audiences.
