Storyline

Jeremy Larkin, Isak Poole, Henry Abington, and Elizabeth Coates were members of "the Yankee Doodle Society", a rebel group based in Chester, Pennsylvania in 1777. Reporting directly to General Lafayette, the team operated as spies behind British lines. Jeremy was the son of Chester's Tory Mayor, who hid his political ideas behind a façade of disinterested pacifism. Elizabeth was a liberated woman ahead of her time, and Isak was an ex-slave. The brains of the group was Henry, a big fan of Benjamin Franklin (whom he resembled), and always able to invent whatever device or scheme the group needed to finish their missions.

Great show - still relevant
3 October 2006 | by szanitySee all my reviews

I'm a history teacher and would love to have this show on DVD to use in my classroom. I remember it well. It got me hooked on American history at a young age. It would be most useful for discussions regarding the way Americans view (and the way American popular culture depicts) the American Revolution and specifically the notion of 'freedom fighters' vs 'terrorists'. It is also an interesting view of the 70's craze for 'relevatism'. I remember being extremely disappointed when it was taken off the air. The acting and the story lines were good. I specifically remember Henry the Ben Franklyn fan and Lafayette that was played by a young Frenchman very well. Of course a young Lou Gossett Jr with hair is certainly worth preserving this show for posterity all by itself! It came out when young people preferred to watch things like Laugh-in and the Partridge Family the year they took the long-running Daniel Boone off the air. Daniel Boone is very similar, especially the first couple of seasons which are available on DVD now, but I rate the Young Rebels a notch above Daniel Boone for current day relevancy.
