McHale's Navy: Season One [DVD](1962) DVD
From 1962 to 1966, McHale's Navy was ABC's must-see comedy series. With an amazing cast, including Academy Award winner Ernest Borgnine ("Lt. Commander McHale"), comic genius Tim Conway ("Ensign Parker"), the one-of-a-kind comic talent of Joe Flynn ("Captain Binghamton") this series remains second only to M*A*S*H as a truly funny military sitcom.
Veteran seaman Quinton McHale is commissioned into the Navy Reserve at the start of WWII. He becomes Skipper of the Torpedo Patrol (PT) Boat #73 stationed on the island of Taratupa in the Pacific. Assigned to his command are six free-spirited, good-hearted swabbies who love to have fun. McHale and his men are constant irritants to their base commander, Captain Wallace B. Binghamton. Binghamton is forever trying to find a way to get rid of McHale and his rule-bending crew, while McHale & Co. are forever scheming to keep him from succeeding. Despite their hilarious party-boy shenanigans and utter disregard for Navy regulations, when duty calls, the crew of PT 73 does its job and does it well.
This release from Shout Factory includes a cast reunion with Ernest Borgnine, Tim Conway, Carl Ballantine, Bob Hastings and Edson Stroll. All 36 episodes from the first season--including "An Ensign for McHale," "Who Do the Voodoo?," "Three Girls on an Island," "The Day They Captured Santa Claus," and "Uncle Admiral"--are featured in a five-disc set. 15 1/2 hrs. total. Standard; Soundtrack: English.

Navy Joins The Air Force(1965) VHS
There's actually no McHale in this, the second
film based on the popular WWII sitcom, so Tim

stage, as a case of mistaken identity puts him
in the cockpit as a would-be ace pilot. Joe
Flynn, Bob Hastings, Ted Bessell co-star. 91
