O'Rourke's dimwitted sidekick and business partner in the illegal O'Rourke Enterprises scheme, originally from Passaic, New Jersey. His name is a play on both Randolph Scott and John Agar. The episode "El Diabolo" features his Mexican bandit cousin who, like all the other members of his family, looks exactly like him. One running gag involves Agarn's delayed reactions: Agarn makes a suggestion; O'Rourke: "Agarn, I don't know why they say you're so dumb!" At an inappropriate moment a few minutes (or a few scenes) later, Agarn, suddenly indignant, demands: "Who says I'm dumb?!" Like O'Rourke, Agarn apparently spent the Civil War years at Fort Courage. Devious, cowardly, confrontational and often overly-emotional, Agarn frequently collapses in tears with the phrases "Oh, Cap'n!" or "Oh, Sarge!" (depending on whose chest he buries his head in). Whenever he becomes frustrated by something one of the troopers does wrong (which is often), short-tempered Agarn hits him with his hat.
