M*A*S*H

Letters - S9-E2

Factual error: In this episode, the regulars receive and respond to letters from a Fourth-Grade class in Hawkeye's home town. Charles receives one from a little girl who says she's sent him a birch leaf. Unfortunately, the leaf he removes from her glassine envelope is a maple leaf. (Note: there was no indication that this was supposed to be her mistake.)

The Yalu Brick Road - S8-E10

New this week Continuity mistake: When "Ralph" has Hawkeye and BJ at gunpoint, saving their lives, the scenery behind them changes several times. Sometimes there's the road and a few trees. Then there's no road and a lot more trees and shrubbery.

They Call the Wind Korea - S7-E7

New this month Continuity mistake: When Klinger is coming over the hill at the end of the episode, the camera shows him in the outdoor setting, and the spot he's on has sparse vegetation. When the camera goes to a close up of him, the trees and shrubs are thicker and closer to him. This alternates a couple of times.

Dear Dad, Again - S1-E18

Other mistake: Near the end of the episode Hawkeye is finishing his letter to his father. He writes "kiss mom and sis", but later in the series we find out that his mother died when he was a kid and he doesn't have any siblings.

Rally Round the Flagg, Boys - S7-E21

Revealing mistake: When Col. Flagg holds his pistol up to stop Mr. Pak Sr. from leaving, you can see there is no magazine in the pistol.

Dear Dad - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: When you see the shadow of the helicopter on the ground, there is no shadow of Hawkeye who is supposedly standing in the door getting ready to be lowered to the ground.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In the first season of M*A*S*H, Hawkeye mentions that his father lives in Vermont, in the later seasons his father lives in Crab Apple Cove, Maine and has never left there in 30 years.

Show generally

Other mistake: Across the show, several times doctors looking at an x-ray picture say things like, "Looks like he swallowed a whole junkyard" or "His belly is full of shrapnel." In fact, shrapnel, being metal fragments, should show up as clear white spots on the x-ray pictures, but none of that is visible in any of the x-rays shown throughout the show.

Alcoholics Unanimous - S3-E9

Revealing mistake: When the tent roof caves in and the projector shorts out in a gush of water from above, you can see that actually the projector "shorts out" before the tent roof ruptures. The crew probably didn't want to risk the pyrotechnic devices getting wet.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In an early episode Hawkeye receives a sweater knitted by his sister. Subsequently in the show he has always been an only child.

Private Charles Lamb - S3-E14

Audio problem: At the end of the show, when Trapper is playing his instrument, the music does not match the movements of his hand.

White Gold - S3-E23

Continuity mistake: When Perkins is recaptured, Henry leaves his office with his cigar in his mouth. In the next shot, of him coming through the door again from the other side, his cigar is in his hand.

Operation Noselift - S2-E18

Revealing mistake: When Henry is trying to convince Baker how wonderful the camp is, Henry says that they "had 'The Thing' and 'The Blob' both in one week". "The Blob" was made in 1958. This season of M*A*S*H is set in 1951 and 1952 (and the war ended in 1953).

Welcome to Korea (60 mins.) - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: When Radar and Burns leave the tent for morning parade, Radar's clipboard acquires a pencil.

Temporary Duty - S6-E21

Continuity mistake: When they are talking about taking Sophie for a walk, Roy is sitting on the bunk. His captain's bars & medical insignia are on the wrong sides. After he stands up, they are on the correct side.

The Colonel's Horse - S5-E11

Factual error: While on the phone, Radar spells out BJ's father-in-law's last name, "H-A-Y-D-E-N" to which Hawkeye quips, "M-O-U-S-E" parodying the old line from the Mickey Mouse club. The M.M. club didn't air until 1955.

For the Good of the Outfit - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: Henry pops out the golf ball he is washing into the towel. After he finishes talking to Hawkeye, he resumes washing. However, no ball is missing from the dirty pile.

Show generally

Factual error: During Henry Blake's command, a model of a Bell UH-1 'Huey' can be seen hanging from the ceiling of the commander's office in several shots. In fact, the Huey's first flight was only in 1956.

The Trial of Henry Blake - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: In the scene of Klinger trying to escape from the 4077 on a hang glider, he secures himself into the control frame, but then when he takes off, he's hanging off the frame's bottom bar.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In the episode "Change of Command", Potter asks Mulcahy if he "can do Methodist". In the episode "Period of Adjustment", Potter asks Mulcahy "You wouldn't lie to a Presbyterian, would you?" Just what denomination *is* Potter?
