Main Characters in this Episode
- Goof (anachronisms): Laura Lee sings a version of "Hello My Baby" which wasn't written until 1899 by Joseph E. Howard and Ida Emerson. F-Troop is set in the late 1860s just after the US Civil War. She uses the words "Soldier Boy" instead of "Ragtime Boy."
- The title is based on the 19th century song 'She's Only a Bird in a Gilded Cage'.
- Soprano performer Laura Lee sings two sets of high notes breaking two glasses held by visiting Generals (pre-Memorex & Ella Fitzgerald commercial). A third set of high notes causes the Fort Courage tower to come crashing down.
