The Birth of the Swamp Fox Oct 23, 1959 One of producer Walt Disney's more blatant efforts to duplicate the success of his early TV miniseries Davy Crockett, the 8-part Swamp Fox featured another flamboyant frontiersman hero who wore coonskin-style headgear and whose adventures were introduced with a catchy, memorable theme song. Based on a book by Dr. Robert D. Bass, The Swamp Fox stars Leslie Nielsen as real-life American patriot Francis Marion, a wealthy landowner who during the Revolutionary War led a hardy band of guerilla fighters against the Redcoats and pro-British tories in his native South Carolina. The villain of the piece (at least in the first few episodes) was another actual historical figure, the ruthless Banastre Tarleton (John Sutton), an officer in the British Green Dragoons (Marion and Tarleton later served as the models for the hero and villain, respectively, of the 1999 Mel Gibson film Patriot). In the first episode, Marion is prevailed upon by his friends and neighbors to help free South Carolina from t

Swamp Fox: Brother Against Brother Oct 30, 1959 In the second episode of Walt Disney's eight-part miniseries The Swamp Fox, the Redcoats have retaliated against the raids of Colonel Francis Marion's guerillas by burning down their homes. While Francis (Leslie Nielsen) advises his men to wait before striking back, his own brother Gabriel (Dick Foran) is in no mood to bide his time. Gabriel has vowed vengeance in particular against the pro-Tory Videaux family, even though Mary Videaux (Joy Page is in love with Francis. What neither Gabriel nor the Redcoats realize is that Mary is secretly working on the guerillas' behalf, spying on the British and reporting their activities to Francis.

Swamp Fox: Tory Vengeance Jan 1, 1960 This story begins with Marion taking Toby, a servant boy, home after finding him dead. They stop at a schoolhouse to learn of Mary Videaux's whereabouts. He learns that Mary is taking tea at the home of Colonel Townes, a Tory leader. The Freedom Fighters storm the home to avoid a connection being made between Mary Videaux and Francis Marion. In secret, the Swamp Fox tells his fiancee of Toby's death, and tries to determine if Tarleton now knows of her scheme of espionage. Reaching no definite decision, Fran tells her to meet him at his brother's place later. Colonel Tarleton, arriving at the Townes plantation, insists he be allowed to take Mary home. On the trip, he accuses her of sending a message to Marion, but she stands her ground. Tarleton obviously lacks proof, but before the matter is resolved, Marion arrives, disarms Tarleton, and orders ""the lady"" to continue on her way.

The Tories have devised a plot to control the salt and medicine in the colonies in an effort to break Rebel resistance. The Swamp Fox enlists the aid of Mary Videaux, his fiancee, to procure the much needed medicine for him. Mary is still believed by many to be a Loyalist, and she convinces Colonel Tarleton to let her have the quinine and salt. While meeting her at Monck's Corner, Francis finds Amos Briggs in a tavern and captures him with the aid of Old Joseph, Toby's father. With Briggs held captive, Marion returns to camp with Mary--she insists on nursing his sick men back to health--and orders the Tory locked in a crude holding cell.

But Francis sniffs out the plot, and leads the British through the swamp. In the ensuing battle, his followers defeat Tarleton soundly, forcing him to return to the Videaux Plantation. Marion elects to let him feel comfortable there, and the episode ends.
