F Troop: The Return of Bald Eagle

The Return of Bald Eagle is a 1955 episode of F Troop which featured Don Rickles as a guest star playing a renegade Indian by the name of Bald Eagle. In the episode, Bald Eagle has been spotted by Fort Dodge and is believed to be heading towards Fort Courage. His reputation as wild and unpredictable precedes him, and Parmenter prepares the Fort for an attack. He is crazy and attacks the fort single-handedly. When the attack fails, he is captured, but he escapes and takes Parmenter with him. O’Rourke, Agarn and Jane head off in pursuit.

This was obviously in far less sensitive times when a white guy playing an Indian by wearing redface was not only acceptable, but considered hilarious.
