Hot Lips and Empty Arms - S2-E14

Continuity mistake: When Margaret is seen drunk in Henry's office it is daylight outside. Radar brings news of incoming casualties so they rush outside where it is pitch dark.

Show generally

Deliberate mistake: These errors I assume were caused by the show running 3 times longer than the real war. Col. Potter arrived at MASH in September 1952 a year before the war ended, then a few months passed by Margaret got engaged for 8 months, then Frank Burns left and Charles took his place. In this time the war would have ended. In the final episode Margaret mentions Charles has been there for 2 years. Which means he would have arrived in 1951 a year before Trapper and Henry left and Col. Potter arrived. It's a lot to take in.

Fade Out, Fade In (60 mins.) - S6-E1

Continuity mistake: In the episode 'Chief Surgeon Who' (season one), near the end of the episode we see Radar in Col. Blake's office smoking a cigar with ease, but in the first episode of season six when Col. Potter offers Radar a cigar, he doesn't know how to smoke it and he throws up after he puffs it.

Depressing News - S9-E12

Factual error: When Klinger's walking with Captain Allen and the Stars and Stripes photographer, just before their introductions to "Ben" they pass an empty corrugated box with its flap open, and the recycling symbol can be seen on the flap. Recycling symbols were not in use until about 20 years later.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: There are two sets of the 4077 compound - the outside Fox Ranch set located at Malibu Creek State Park, and the second set inside the studio's Stage 9. The layout of both sets are quite different - Studio 9's set was vastly smaller than the Ranch set, so things such as the proximity of the Swamp to the mess tent are different between the shots filmed at the Ranch and shots filmed at Studio 9, when seen within the very same episodes.

The Best of Enemies - S9-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When Colonel Potter and Charles exit the mess tent carrying the trays, so they can serve breakfast in bed to the winners, they split up and as Charles walks to the Swamp saying, "What a shame to have wasted all these years as a doctor," we have a great view of the boom and boom mic at the left side of the screen as it moves backwards away from Charles, outside the Swamp.

War Co-Respondent - S8-E23

Visible crew/equipment: When they're all in the OR talking about Aggie being at the 4077, Charles compares Colonel Potter's art style to Aggie's, and in the next shot as Potter tells the art critic to tread softly, the boom mic is visible at the top, right side of the screen and just as the mic starts to pull up the shot zooms in on Aggie.

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

Visible crew/equipment: When Frank climbs into the jeep belonging to Major General Cornell Dickering, the MPs show up at the same time that BJ and Hawkeye walk up to join the fun, and during this scene there's a T-mark (albeit a dusty one) on the ground at the driver's side of the jeep.

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.

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

Other mistake: When Hawkeye has Lt. Dish draw the winner of the raffle, he turns the bottom of the glass towards the crowd - meaning they would be able to see Lt. Dish pick the raffle ticket that has been taped to the bottom of the glass, just like the audience does.

House Arrest - S3-E18

Revealing mistake: In the swamp during the movie, Frank comes up and talks to Igor, who is running the projector. Although there is a film running, there is no film on either the supply or take-up reels.

Abyssinia, Henry - S3-E24

Factual error: Henry says that every Wednesday, his wife drives up Route 26 with some friends. US. Route 26 starts out in Nebraska and leads to Oregon. The closest thing that could be described as a "Route 26" would be the road leading from Princeton, IL to Dixon, IL which begins 85 miles from Bloomington. The writer probably meant Route 24, which passes about 20 miles north of Bloomington.

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.
