Tuttle - S1-E15

Corrected entry: At the credits, the fictional character is mentioned: "Tuttle.........as himself" (00:25:05)

Correction: This is a joke and not a mistake. By "fictional character", you do not mean one created by MASH writers for the show, but a fake Captain made up by Hawkeye and Trapper. It was just a funny way of saying since Tuttle only existed on paper, that paper existence was real and fictional.

Tuttle - S1-E15

Corrected entry: Hawkeye and Trapper make Tuttle an alumnus of "Berlin Polytechnic" and translate that (wrongly) as "Berlinishes Polytechnikum". Berlin's polytechnic university was named "Technische Hochschule Berlin" at the relevant time - and at no time offered a medical curriculum. To study medicine in Berlin, Tuttle would have to attend "Freie Universit├Ąt Berlin" instead.

Correction: And how are Hawkeye and Trapper suppose to know that? They are after all, making all this up. It is never meant to be factual.

It is intended to fool Margret and Frank, so it has to be assumed that they meant to pull it off. Hawkeye says "It can't be any place they'll check", which is why they select a German university in the first place. That shows it is indeed meant to be if not watertight, then at least convincing. To use an university you don't know the proper name of doesn't make sense under these circumstances.

Tuttle - S1-E15

Corrected entry: When Margaret and Frank look over Tuttle's file, Margaret reads aloud the words "Berlinishes Polytechnikum". The correct German wording would be "Berliner Polytechnikum". While this could be ascribed to a mistake of Hawkeye or Trapper, no indication of that being the case is given in the show.

Correction: It is indicated. That is what Hawkeye says as he writes it down. He doesn't know German well.
