** In the episode "Der Tag," Radar is shown sleeping with a copy of ''ComicBook/TheAvengers'' comic book on his chest, with the 1970s logo. One shot later, it switches to another issue of the same comic with the '60s logo. Either way, the Avengers weren't around during the Korean War (in fact, none of the major characters from the Marvel Universe had even been ''created'', other than ComicBook/CaptainAmerica). In "Court Martial," Radar is shown possessing a ''[[ComicBook/TheAmazingSpiderman Spiderman]]'' comic book. Spidey wouldn't be created until 1962.

** In "The Abduction of Margaret Houlihan", Col. Flagg shows up "disguised" in an Italian Army uniform, a false mustache and McArthur sunglasses. When Col. Potter asks him why he's dressed that way, Flagg says he's actually dressed as Ling Chow, a Chinese double agent. When Potter remarks that he doesn't look Chinese, Flagg replies, "Neither would Ling Chow if he were dressed like this."

* ExtraLongEpisode: The fourth, fifth, sixth, and tenth season premieres were originally hour-long episodes that were later split into half-hour two-parters for reruns; similarly, Season Seven originally had an hour-long ClipShow that was also split into a half-hour two-parter in syndication. Of course, the GrandFinale was a two hour (minus commercials) TV movie.

** Two moments in "Some 38th Parallels": an entire subplot focuses on a nurse wanting to get it on with Hawkeye, but he can't because he's suffering from a case of impotency. Secondly, Frank holds a garbage auction, and tries to wish the Korean bidders prosperity, but he looked up the wrong word, and instead, wishes each of them a prostitute.

** Hawkeye attempting to surrender the entire camp to a lone sniper, against orders, so they can attend to the wounded (without even trying to explain how this makes any sense);
** It actually was explained and made good sense. They surrender, the sniper stops shooting thus enabling the doctors to get the wounded into the OR where they can be treated. It was successful too.

** This is used by Klinger as a dodge one time. He attempted to convince everyone that he believed the 4077 was Toledo (he played off the wounded as him helping out the victims of a traffic accident). This almost worked--but, as always, he blew it at the last second.
