Radar's Report - S2-E3

Visible crew/equipment: When Klinger walks into Henry's office while Margaret and Frank are there, we can see the chalk T-mark on the floor behind Margaret where Radar was standing moments ago.

5 O'Clock Charlie - S2-E2

Other mistake: During this episode, Trapper and Hawkeye keep switching Frank's pistol with other things. When Frank's training his South Korean platoon, Trapper, Hawkeye, and Radar show up all decked out, and while Hawkeye's telling Frank that using the anti-aircraft gun on the compound will draw enemy planes, etc., there's a pistol in Frank's holster. When Frank turns around, we see that Trapper's right arm is bent over his fly swatter the entire time until he steps away from Frank, and when Frank draws from the holster what he believes is the pistol, he pulls out a plunger, and although it's funny, Trapper never actually had the opportunity to switch the pistol with the plunger, nor did Hawkeye or Radar.

The Long-John Flap - S1-E19

Other mistake: When Frank's with Margaret in her tent and she tells him that she thinks they should reevaluate their friendship, there's a Life Magazine lying on her bed which is dated over 15 years in the future - August 25, 1967, with "The other war in Vietnam" written on its cover.

Love Story - S1-E14

Visible crew/equipment: After Radar tells Margaret that she's needed in the post-op ward Frank sneaks toward Margaret's tent, and when it cuts to Margaret walking into post-op, at the start of the shot we can see the two actors' curved chalk foot marks on the floor.

To Market, to Market - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When Radar walks into Henry's office to tell him that there's a general there to see him, we get a good view of Henry's new desk and its beautiful ornate design, but later when Hawkeye and Trapper are carrying the desk and then it's lifted out by chopper it's a completely different desk - also note that this desk has casters.

The Bus - S4-E6

Continuity mistake: The "KILROY" Hawkeye writes on the window as BJ looks out was in the center with his fingertip. Later, as Hawkeye looks out, the "KILROY" is now closer to the frame, and the lettering is different, a small capital A in front of it, and lines above and below it.

Movie Nut

Aid Station - S3-E19

Visible crew/equipment: As Hawkeye walks into the Aid Station, the shadow of the camera plays across his entrance. Also, the area he walks through is extremely well lit, despite the fact the sun is behind the station, indicating stage lighting.

Movie Nut

Adam's Ribs - S3-E11

Revealing mistake: As Radar, Henry, Klinger and Trapper get up to answer the emergency call, the outside background can be seen in the upper right corner of the shot, showing it was done on a sound stage.

M*A*S*H - The Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: After Frank picks up the still, his hands alternate from left hand above right to right hand above left between angles.

Rally Round the Flagg, Boys - S7-E21

Revealing mistake: As Charles leaves the Mess Tent, you can see the camo net where there normally is none, and the background abruptly ends about 20 feet from the end of the building.

Movie Nut

The Sniper - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: At the picnic, the basket is sitting with the end towards the camera, and bottle of liquor in it. Before the first shot from the sniper, the basket is sideways, and the bottle in front towards the camera on the ground.

Movie Nut

Show generally

Factual error: In one episode in the hospital tent, Hawkeye hands a Hershey Chocolate Bar to a wounded soldier lying in bed. The back of the candy bar had a Universal Product Code (UPC) on it. UPCs were not used until the 1970s.

Tom348

Bombed - S3-E15

Continuity mistake: When Margaret asks Frank for cash to help her sister get an apartment, he asks about her father leaving her anything, implying that her father is dead. Later on, we see her father when he comes to visit her in another episode.

Movie Nut

Show generally

Factual error: Throughout the series, actors are seen wearing cuffless permapress fatigues. Neither cuffless nor permapress utilities were available until the 1970s.

Abyssinia, Henry - S3-E24

Continuity mistake: When Henry kisses Margret, she grabs her hat. In the reverse shot, her hand is around Henry's neck. After the next cut, it's on her hat again.

Doc

Images - S6-E9

Continuity mistake: When Cpl. Hendrix is examined on the operating table, Klinger and Hawkeye admire his tattoos. Klinger asks "do you really think the real Louise is built like that?" and Hawkeye replies, "If she is, I'm in love". Later, when Radar talks to Hendrix, Radar says, "Her face is still pretty, and her legs are the greatest." Hendrix asks, "What about the rest of her?" and Radar replies, "There isn't any." How could Hawkeye and Klinger admire Louise's build if the tattoo was that shot up?

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

Audio problem: When the soldiers in the back come flying through the window, you hear a window pane break and cullets tingle when the window is in fact a Japanese-style paper window.

Bulletin Board - S3-E16

Continuity mistake: First, Radar is seen drumming on his tin cans with bare hands. After cut, when the hula girl appears, without interruption of the drum pattern, he suddenly is holding some sort of drumsticks.
