M*A*S*H Bloopers

A couple of minutes of surprisingly foul-mouthed M*A*S*H bloopers!

Milton Bradley Puzzles - 1982

Saw these two 250-piece puzzles for sale on eBay--I cannot imagine they sold well, considering the fact that Milton Bradley (or someone else) picked the most boring or just plain weird scenes possible to use for the puzzles!

When did you ever see Margaret clowning around with Klinger like that? And Col. Potter could not look more bored in that shot with Sophie (who also looks bored). Very strange!

M*A*S*H Postcard - 1983

This M*A*S*H postcard is on sale on eBay--it's from the Smithsonian's exhibit on the show (which featured a couple of the show's sets, including The Swamp) which ran not too long after it went off the air.

I wonder how CMR did on her mid-term?

M*A*S*H Playing Cards - 1982

Saw this for sale on eBay--since the staff of the 4077th played cards a lot, I guess you could call this a completely justifiable tie-in!

A "Hot Lips Look-alike contest"? As Radar might say, Holy Cow!

Lethbridge Herald - 3/3/83

An interesting piece about the emotional toil M*A*S*H going off the air had on people!

Wisconsin State Journal - 6/3/73

This article came less than a year into M*A*S*H's run, and before CBS moved the show to after All In The Family--where the rest of America pretty much found it, so the Wisconsin State Journal (or some AP reporter) was ahead of the curve. Click the image to read the whole piece!

Roswell Daily Record - 12/20/82

A very favorable piece about M*A*S*H Executive Producer Burt Melcalfe, a little less than three months before the show left the air.

Check out the headline and last line of the first paragraph, which describes Metcalfe as having "made a great show even greater." Now, I love the show as a whole, all eleven seasons, and think some of the series' best moments occurred in Seasons Six through Eleven. But you'd be hard pressed to find anyone who says that M*A*S*H's best years, as a whole, were post-Larry Gelbart and Gene Reynolds.

Yuma Daily Sun - 12/2/77

A surprising amount of column space devoted to what would, ultimately, not really go anywhere: the "romance" between Hawkeye and Margaret. That's how big M*A*S*H was!
