A comedic actor who also did voiceover work, Storch played the scheming Corporal Randolph Agarn on “F Troop” and was nominated for an Emmy Award in 1967 for his performance on the show.
“F Troop,” which ran for two seasons on ABC, was a satirical Western about bumbling soldiers and peaceful Native Americans at a fictional Army outpost in the Old West. The politically incorrect series featured sight gags, slapstick comedy and White actors — including Don Rickles — playing Native Americans.
The New York native made guest appearances in dozens of TV series throughout his long career, including “I Dream of Jeannie,” “Get Smart,” “The Flying Nun” and “The Love Boat.”
Storch was also a familiar face on popular variety shows, including “Sonny and Cher,” “Laugh-In” and “Hollywood Squares.”
In the latter part of his career, he returned to New York and appeared on Broadway. He was cast with Reba McEntire in the 2000 revival of “Annie Get Your Gun.” At age 81, he performed multiple shows a week in a 2004 production of “Sly Fox.”
Through it all, Storch embraced being remembered for his “F Troop” role.
