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

Continuity mistake: In the assembly called by Major Burns at the beginning of the show, Klinger is in the front rank far left (except when the continuity error has him centre rear), but after the appearance of Hawkeye in the rickshaw Klinger isn't on parade at all.


The Most Unforgettable Characters - S5-E14

Factual error: In the scene where Hawkeye and BJ are actually fighting while pretending to fight; when they enter the tent, Frank is polishing his boots and whistling the theme music to The Muppet Show (1976). While The Muppet Show had already been screening for a year when this episode was first broadcast, the music was unknown in the 1950s as it was written specifically for the show by Muppets creator Jim Henson, and Sam Pottle.

Preventive Medicine - S7-E22

Other mistake: During the duration of the episode a wounded person is addressed as Corporal North but during the credits he is called Private North.

Depressing News - S9-E12

Other mistake: When Alan Alda and Mike Farrell are walking into frame in the scene where Hawkeye and BJ discover the huge shipment of tongue depressors, Alda's feet are visible for about two seconds and he has bright blue early '80s shoes on.

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.

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

Continuity mistake: In the Commander's office, Frank's arms go from being in front of MacArthur's picture frame, to gone, and back again in a matter of a few seconds.
