M*A*S*H gave its viewers so much to look forward to during the 11 years it was on air. The series gave us Alan Alda, Loretta Swit, Gary Burghoff, along with the rest of the 4077th crew. It also gave viewers hope and provided laughter during the 11 seasons.

A big part of what makes M*A*S*H special was the impact the series had on the country during the 1970s. We want to test your knowledge of this iconic series. We are taking it to the 4077th to test your M*A*S*H memory.

You will be given three statements, and your job is to pick which statement you think is a lie. Good luck!

You got 4 out of 10 - The truth is... Hawkeye was hoping you would've got a higher score. Brush up on your M*A*S*H memory with another quiz. I should have got at least 6 because I kept looking for the one that was TRUE. So if the first option was TRUE I clicked on it and got it wrong. Plus #7 is a little deceiving. It said the first option is the lie with the reasoning that "Gary Burghoff was the only actor in the M*A*S*H film asked to be in the series." That may be true but the first option says "There were four actors in the M*A*S*H series that were also in the M*A*S*H film (1970)." It didn't say that were "asked to be in the series" it says "also in the series". G. Wood, played General Hammond in both the movie and the series and guitar player Corey Fischer (not Loudon Wainwright III) was in the movie and series playing two different characters. I figured there had to be a fourth that I could not remembe so I figured the first option was correct and not the LIE. Even if they were the only 3 actors to be in both the series and movie (and thus not 4 making it the LIE), the reason about Gary Burghoff is not entirely true. He was the only regular cast member but there were other actors (and probably an acrtress or two) who appeared in both the movie and the series.

Coming from a life of being average, 5/10 is as good as being perfect, mediocrity,

8C I guessed was a lie. Loretta Swit missed about 4 episodes and appeared very little in a 4th in Season 4 because she left early to appear in a production of "Same Time, Next Year", more than just the 1 that the "truth" states.

I'm confused about #4. "Gary Burghoff was the only regular actor to leave the series without being replaced." That's not really true. Klinger replaced him as clerk.

True...but Trapper, Henry and Frank were all replaced [for want of a better term] by brand new characters. Klinger just took on a new job as company clerk...once he sobered up from that drinking binge he and BJ went on that one night, anyway.

Ah, thank you for clarifying that.

More lies: There are 255 episodes of M*A*S*H (there are 251 CBS BROADCASTS which is different). Also G. Wood portrayed the same character in two episodes of M*A*S*H and in the movie. Also Timothy Brown and Corey Fischer appeared in both the movie and series but playing different characters.

#7 The actor who played sparky was seen only once or twice in the series. He also played the radio operator in the movie (not a part of radar's job description - too much to do for one person in a real MASH outfit). Yes they were minor roles at best.

I was in the Twilight Zone when I took this quiz. I can’t reveal my score it is too embarrassing

8/10 I had a couple of lucky guesses.

Wayne Rogers was sued for breach of contract? I know he said in an interview if he had known MASH would be so popular, he never would've left. And he didn't like playing second banana to Alda.

In most episodes I like Trapper better than Hawkeye. Certainly funnier. Not a second 🍌
frenchman71 Coldnorth 23 days ago
Gotta agree. I always liked Trapper. At times he was funnier than Hawkeye. And the early seasons, uo to & including season 5, were the best. I'm also including Henry & Frank Burns.

Question 9 is wrong, Jamie Farr was also both in the pilot and in the finale. In the pilot we see him in a nurse uniform and then at the end of the episode we see him with nothing but a rifle. In the finale we see him get married.

Jamie started in Ep 4, Chief Surgeon Who. But the answer about the paintings is wrong, Harry Morgan did not paint those.
