Watch McHale's Navy
- 4 Seasons
McHale's Navy takes place in World War II on a Pacific Island Base called Taratupa. McHale is the commanding officer of the Naval Ship that is stationed here and he and his men are about to get the surprise of a lifetime. Japanese planes decide to bomb the island virtually destroying every inch of the military base. When the attack was over it was discovered out of 150 Marines and Naval personnel only 18 had survived. There was virtually no way to make a rescue attempt as the Japanese had the entire region heavily patrolled and so the men had no choice but to hide among the island and survive. They become good friends with the natives and begin to live among them. After months of living in a state of leisure and not even working on ways to get rid of the Japanese, the men get another surprise. A new executive office parachutes onto the island with new orders for McHale. However, McHale refuses to follow the orders and risk the lives of the men that were left after the attack. The men have grown so accustomed to their living arrangements that they started to fit in with the locals. One man started a laundry service while McHale owned a still and was making moonshine. To make matters worse for the poor executive officer McHale was close friends with the Native Chief. When it is later learned that a Marine battalion is pinned down on the beach and on the horizon another Japanese attacked lurked McHale began to change his mind. He is ordered to use his ships and protect the Marines but due to the bombing all ships had been sunk. He decided to overrun a Japanese ship and keep the Japanese flag flying so he could get as close as he could to a Japanese Cruiser. Once he was close enough he would then send out two torpedoes to destroy the cruiser and sink it to the bottom.
