Originally titled 'You'll Never Get Rich' and often now referred to as just 'Bilko'. The series starred Phil Silvers as Master Sergeant Ernest G. Bilko of Fort Baxter's motor pool. He was always looking for a way to make a fast buck, provided the Colonel didn't find out. His platoon was frequently the brunt of his money making schemes.
