Did You Know?


when General Fox points to the star on his shoulder and asks Hawkeye, "What does this mean to you?" Hawkeye responds by quoting a famous Texaco advertisement rhyme, "Always trust your car to the man who wears a star." However, Texaco did not introduce this advertisement jingle until 1962, 9 years after the Korean War ended. See more »

Toomfoolery At Someone's Account!!

Leo Bardonero stopped by to visit Captains Pierce and Hunnicutt in "The Swamp" in "Last Laugh." He told his buddies that he was heading home to Philadelphia. Captain Hunnicutt and Leo Bardonero were telling about the stunts they pulled at Stanford to Captain Pierece. Captain Hunnicutt was happy -- although disappointed -- about Bardonaro obtaining his discharge from the Army. By the same token, he would do anything to return home to Mill Valley. Bardonaro leaves the tent; and then he proceeded with giving them some "surprise" gadgets. Captain Pierce felt the joy buzzer after shaking hands with Bardonero. Captain Hunnicutt had a cigar exploded in the air.

Major Houlihan wanted to see Donald Penboscott in Tokyo. Colonel Potter told her that she could not be spared from duty. From there, the Provost Marshal's Office filed willful misconduct charges against Captain Hunnicutt. It was a setup on behalf of Bardonero as a practical joke -- or so it seemed to Captain Hunnicutt. The military police took Hunnicutt to a detention facility to face these accusations. Colonel Potter and Captain Pierce were heading to Seoul to clear Hunnicutt of these charges. Major Houlihan told Corporal O'Reilly to find Donald Penobscott in Tokyo -- under coercion. He made a contact with Sparky; another contact would not be made until after midnight. Major Houlihan was furious at him for not trying harder.

In the end, B.J. Hunnicutt was cleared of all charges. The cap was too big to fit his head. The forged signature on an invoice indicated that B.J. Hunnicutt was not responsible for the hotel charges in Seoul. Colonel Potter won his case on behalf of B.J. Hunnicutt. Enjoy!!
