M*A*S*H Ad - "Bug Out"
For once, a pretty accurate description of the episode, and no use of goofy photos of cast members spliced together!

"The Hot Ones"?

M*A*S*H Ad - "Stars and Stripe"

I wonder how Wayne Rogers felt, having his M*A*S*H past so directly referenced, considering his fairly acrimonious departure. Considering what a great lead-in M*A*S*H was, for any show, he was probably okay with it!

TV Guide - 4/25/81

Yet another piece of M*A*S*H obscura courtesy Swamp Rat Russell Burbage, a 1981 edition of TV Guide featuring an extended article on the making of an episode of the show. Really interesting behind the scenes glimpse, capped off by an Al Hirschfeld cover. Not bad for 40 cents!

Thanks again Russell!

TV Guide - 9/10/83

Another piece of M*A*S*H obscura courtesy Swamp Rat Russell Burbage, here's a 1983 edition of TV Guide featuring an article on the new show, AfterM*A*S*H. Note the somewhat condescending tone in the article, I guess the writer just couldn't help themselves.

Thanks again Russell!

Dynamite #19

Swamp Rat Russell Burbage sent me a box o'fun for my birthday a few months ago, including some M*A*S*H stuff, like this issue of everyone's favorite magazine, Dynamite!

 It might seem surprising that a magazine aimed at kids would so extensively cover what was an adult TV show, but I think it only underscores just how massively popular the show was at the time. Side note: it's funny that the only promo still Dynamite could get of Harry Morgan was when he was playing General Steele in Season 3's "The General Flipped At Dawn", not a shot of him as Col. Potter. No one said running a magazine would be easy.

Thanks Russell!
