Adam's Ribs - S3-E11

Revealing mistake: While Hawkeye's in the mess tent leading the protest shouting "we want something else" he climbs the tent pole, and in two of the wideshots the camera has panned a bit too far to the right, and we can see the edge of the tent facade set at the top right corner of the screen.

Adam's Ribs - S3-E11

Continuity mistake: While Hawkeye leads the protest in the mess tent shouting "we want something else," there are two closeup shots of the table where Klinger and Radar are seated, and Klinger's white evening purse is missing, but in the previous and following wideshots the purse is hanging on his arm.

Adam's Ribs - S3-E11

Continuity mistake: When Hawkeye's in the mess tent holding the food tray the succotash is on the left and potatoes on the right with a space in the middle, so when Igor serves him creamed corn offscreen the corn should be between the potatoes and succotash, but when Hawkeye's having the fit and walks away from Igor, the potatoes (a higher mound) are now in the center space between corn and succotash.

The Trial of Henry Blake - S2-E8

L.I.P. (Local Indigenous Personnel) - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: After Lieutenant Willis wakes up in the Swamp he gets dressed and puts his tie around his neck with its tail end on his right, but when it cuts to his closeup the tie's wide end is at his right side, then it switches again.

Kim - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: When Hawkeye's saying goodbye to the nurse in the morning, he reads "35591715" from her dog tag and says, "Even your number is pretty," and then he makes another date with her and again reads her dog tag, but now the number's "39591715."

Kim - S2-E6

Other mistake: When Hawkeye and Trapper are arguing with Henry about not sending the little boy to the orphanage, Henry says, "Look, you think I wanna send this little fella away? I got two kids of my own. I'm a former child myself," but at the end of season 1 Henry's wife delivered a boy, whom Henry was aching to be with, so Henry really has three kids.

Dr. Pierce and Mr. Hyde - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: After Hawkeye and Trapper leave the OR, when they open the door to the Swamp the dartboard is not hanging on the door, but in the interior shot the dartboard's there.

For the Good of the Outfit - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: Hawkeye mails a letter to his father which is delayed in its delivery, and when Hawkeye finally receives a reply from his father it's dated May 24, 1951, but in the previous episode "Radar's Report" the weekly report that Radar typed up was dated October 17 through October 22, 1951.

Divided We Stand - S2-E1

Visible crew/equipment: After we hear General Clayton in the voiceover talking about how it sometimes seems like Henry is Radar's clerk, during this scene in Henry's office we can see the shadow of moving film equipment - likely the boom, at the top, left side of the screen.

Major Fred C. Dobbs - S1-E22

Other mistake: While the dentist is working in Henry's mouth Frank's describing Hawkeye and Trapper's pranks, and right after we see a shot of the dog licking hamburger from Frank's ear, when it cuts to Henry saying, "Frank, just leave my married life out of this. Doc, will you watch it before I swallow your watch!" keep your eyes on Larry Linville as he mouths McLean Stevenson's lines along with him.

Sticky Wicket - S1-E21

Other mistake: When Hawkeye walks into the shower tent while Ugly John's showering he removes his robe, and just as Hawkeye swings open the door to step into the shower stall we can see that he's wearing something, presumably a swimsuit.

Sticky Wicket - S1-E21

Continuity mistake: In the mess tent, when Frank asks Hawkeye why he makes his life so miserable in the OR, notice that in the wideshots there's a silver pitcher, napkin holder, etc. On the table between Trapper and Margaret who are facing each other, but in the shots facing Margaret and Frank, and also Trapper and Hawkeye all of those things vanish and then reappear.

Sticky Wicket - S1-E21

Continuity mistake: In the mess tent, after Radar uses the ketchup he puts the cap back on, but while Hawkeye and Trapper tease Radar about his hearty appetite, when it cuts to Radar's closeups the cap is off the ketchup, but then it's back on in the wideshot.

Sticky Wicket - S1-E21

Continuity mistake: After the opening credits it cuts to Hawkeye, Trapper, Radar, and Ugly John playing poker in the Swamp and they're all wearing their uniforms when they run out to the incoming choppers, but what we see next is the same footage from the Pilot that's shown in the opening credits, with Hawkeye and Trapper wearing Hawaiian shirts as they meet the choppers.

Dear Dad, Again - S1-E18

Continuity mistake: When the Swinging Surgeons are performing during the charity no-talent night, Radar's drum kit is set up differently between the wideshots and closeups.

Dear Dad, Again - S1-E18

Continuity mistake: During the charity no-talent night, when the curtain opens on the Swinging Surgeons we can see Radar using a set of brushes on the drums, but in Radar's closeups he's using drum sticks, then in the wideshot it's back to the brushes again.

Love Story - S1-E14

Other mistake: After Hawkeye asks, "Radar who?" while he's kissing a nurse, it cuts to Trapper, Radar, and Hawkeye walking past a jeep parked in front of the mess tent, then another jeep shows up with Lieutenant Anderson, but both jeeps have the same stain (looks like rust) on the front bar - the same jeep was used in both shots.
