Broadside was an American sitcom that aired on ABC during the 1964-65 television season. The series starred Dick Sargent, Sheila James (her last regular television series role) and Arnold Stang. According to television nostalgia website TV Party, Broadside was from the creator of 'McHales Navy' and centered around the women of the Navy (WAVES) circa World War II, who found themselves transfered to an island in the South Pacific to run the motor pool in an otherwise all-male environment.
Broadside is a weekly, single-panel comic published in the Navy Times since 1986, and written by Jeff Bacon. The humor is very specifically directed at United States Navy personnel, and considered nearly incomprehensible by many non-Navy servicepersons. Bacon also writes a second cartoon called Greenside, featuring United States Marine Corps personnel stationed aboard Navy vessels.
