Storyline

The 4077th Mobile Army Surgical Hospital is stuck in the middle of the Korean War. With little help from the circumstances, in which they find themselves, they are forced to make their own fun. Fond of practical jokes and revenge, the doctors, nurses, administrators, and soldiers often find ways of making wartime life bearable. Nevertheless, the war goes on. Written by Murray Chapman <muzzle@cs.uq.oz.au>

Trivia

Frank Burns' (Larry Linville's) nickname "Ferret Face" came from his brother. He mentioned it to Hawkeye (Alan Alda) and Trapper (Wayne Rogers) once, during a rare drinking binge, and they never forgot it. (Even B.J.'s (Mike Farrell's) first words to Burns when they met were "What say, Ferret Face?") See more »

Goofs

Two sets of the camp were built, one in the outdoors, and one within a studio. This is apparent in numerous episodes when the characters are standing "outside" in broad daylight, but each cast member has numerous shadows as a result of studio lights shining in different directions, as well as an echo within the studio that is not audible on the outdoor set.

Quotes

[as Maj. Burns looks for bombs in a field]
B.J.: What's Frank up to?
Hawkeye: I think he's vacuuming Korea. Eisenhower's coming; he wants everything just so.

Still Funny After 30 Years
10 March 2003 | by See all my reviews

This is still one of the funniest shows on television, especially the first four seasons when they still had a broad sense of humor. To me the glory days of M*A*S*H ended with the departure of Larry Linville (Major Frank Burns). After his departure, especially in the final three years, the show became more and more issue oriented and pretty much lost me until the classic finale. Other than that, it was still a great show.
