M*A*S*H Ad - Frank & Hot Lips Week

Some markets put a little extra effort into their M*A*S*H syndication, assembling theme weeks culled from the hundreds of series episodes they had at their disposal. Channel 11 here went even further, apparently getting Larry Linville for a new interview for the occasion. Which had to be kinda weird, since he had long left the show by this point.

Even weirder is the clip art they used for the ad--instead of a shot of Loretta Swit in character, they used this more contemporary photo. A shot that looks like it came from the same photo shoot was used for the Milton Bradley M*A*S*H board game, and I'm no less confused now than I was then why it was so hard finding a pic of Hot Lips Houlihan!
