The staff of an Army hospital in the Korean War find that laughter is the best way to deal with their situation.
There was one nude scene throughout the entire series. It occurred during season two, episode ten, "M*A*S*H: The Sniper (1973)". When Radar was running outside wearing only a towel and the sniper is firing at him, he runs back into the showers at which point, the towel he was wearing was rigged to fall of. This was Director Jackie Cooper's idea, and only one frame was left in for the effect.
Klinger, how dare you wear that hat while in uniform?
Klinger: It's spring, sir.
Characters are often shown very close to the blast of artillery shells. The blast is not the danger, but the flying shrapnel from the shell would have been and as close as they were the would have been hit.
The pilot episode opening credits (only seen in original network airings and on DVD and video releases), feature the legend "KOREA, 1950. A hundred years ago..."
The pilot episode's original opening title sequence was edited out of all versions in syndication. It is replaced by the standard opening title sequence used during the remainder of the series run. The original opening is only available on the OOP Columbia House and 2002 Fox Video VHS/DVD releases.
