Al Bundy is a misanthropic women's shoe salesman with a miserable life. He hates his job, his wife is lazy, his son is dysfunctional (especially with women), and his daughter is dim-witted and promiscuous.
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

The producers of Trapper John, M.D. (1979) approached Wayne Rogers to play the title role in their new spin-off. He declined. If he had, the producers of Trapper John would have most certainly had to pay royalties to their parent show MASH! As it was, when they were sued by Gene Reynolds and Larry Gelbart and the MASH team, they successfully argued that Trapper John was actually a spinoff of the MASH movie and the book, not necessarily the tv show. They would have had a hard time making that argument if Wayne Rogers had been hired to play Trapper! See more »

You're a tribute to man's endurance. A monument to hope in size 12 pumps. I hope you do get out someday. There would be a battalion of men in hoop skirts right behind you.

The pilot episode's original opening title sequence was edited out of all versions in syndication. It is replaced by the standard opening title sequence used during the remainder of the series run. The original opening is only available on the OOP Columbia House and 2002 Fox Video VHS/DVD releases. See more »
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.
