Iron Guts Kelly - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: After Iron Guts Kelly dies in Margaret's tent, Frank Burns visits Margaret, suspecting something. Frank asks why there is a general's star on her cot. In the ensuing 'back and forth' dialogue, Margaret's hair goes (in close ups) from nicely combed, to frazzled, back to nicely combed again (and in a different light).

A War for all Seasons - S9-E6

Deliberate mistake: Winchester is listening on the radio to the 1951 Giants win the pennant. In the MASH series, Potter was supposed to have arrived 19 Sept. 1952, and Charles Winchester after Potter did. The Giants won the pennant during the previous year, not when Winchester was there. Also Potter, BJ and Winchester are present for New Years parties for '50-'51 and '51- '52 even though none of them arrived until late 1952.

Henry, Please Come Home - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: As Henry is receiving his medal, Hawkeye walks up and stands close behind a man who is standing up and two women who are sitting down. The camera angle switches to show Hawkeye talking to Trapper and now they are standing behind two standing women.

The Ringbanger - S1-E16

Continuity mistake: When Radar is slipping the glass of milk into Buzz's tent, we see the outside of the tent and there are no windows. From the inside, the milk is placed on a table that is right under a window. Also, the milk is already on the table in a scene before Radar puts it there.

Hot Lips and Empty Arms - S2-E14

Continuity mistake: Margaret is in Henry's office drunk and she tells Henry that he looks just like her father did before he died. In Season 9. Episode 4 "Father's Day" Margaret's father, Alvin 'Howitzer' Houlihan, visits her at the 4077.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In the pilot episode it says the year is 1950. In the episode "Radar's Report" in season 2 Radar says it's 1951, yet in the episode "A War For All Seasons" in season 9 we are told at the beginning of the episode they are going from 1950 to 1951.

Tell it To the Marines - S9-E8

Continuity mistake: The water Klinger accidentally spits on Potter goes from a number of separate spots to one big spot in a couple of seconds.

Private Finance - S8-E8

Continuity mistake: In Rosie's Bar, the lettering reading "GI CLASSY" is in thick letters. From the outside, the lettering is thin.

Hawkeye - S4-E18

Plot hole: When Hawkeye wrecks his jeep on his way back from an aid station, he has a Korean girl take a message to the 4077th, which he claims is 20 miles south. However, in virtually every episode, it is claimed that the 4077th is located 4 miles from the front lines.

Factual error: In the beginning, you can see that there's a First Lieutenant bar on Margaret's left collar instead of the medical symbol Caduceus, like Charles has on.

Visible crew/equipment: As the M.P. jeep escorting the General's jeep gets close to the camera, a reflection of a lighting rig or reflector is seen in the right windscreen.

Movie Nut

Hawkeye Get Your Gun - S5-E10

Character mistake: As Potter and Hawkeye pull up to the MP checkpoint, Potter and the MP exchange salutes. As per Army regulations, no salutes are given under battle conditions. The reason is that if the superior officer, in this case Colonel Potter, returns the salute, he can be a target for snipers.
