* StripPoker: An early episode has a gag where Hawkeye and Trapper are down to their underwear while playing this with - and losing badly to - a nurse. When Hawkeye loses another hand, he takes off... [[LoopholeAbuse his dogtags.]]
** A later episode has several characters playing this...however, since it's the dead of winter, even the losers are still donning several layers of clothing when the game's interrupted by arriving wounded.

The show ran on Creator/{{CBS}} [[LongRunner from 1972 to 1983]], seven years longer than UsefulNotes/TheKoreanWar during which it takes place. The setting is the 4077th MASH, located just three miles from the front line in Uijeongbu, where the doctors and nurses perform "meatball surgery" and otherwise do what they can to patch up the physical (and, occasionally, psychological) wounds of the conflict's casualties while staving off their own fear, stress, boredom and fatigue by fair means or foul.

Other ways in which the series changed how the SitCom was perceived was by its use (or disuse) of the LaughTrack, commonly imposed by the networks if a studio audience was not going to be present at the episodes' filming. The show's creators grudgingly accepted the laugh track, but soon imposed rules on when it was not to be used (during any of the operating room scenes), and dropped it entirely in certain nontypical episodes. Eventually they abandoned it entirely. (The laugh track was never used when the series was broadcast by Creator/TheBBC in the UK, and the [=DVDs=] on both sides of the pond offer the option to watch the shows with or without the canned laughter intact.)

Considering that [[Literature/{{Mash}} the original novel]] consisted mostly of the characters engaging in WackyFratboyHijinx and boasting about [[AManIsNotAVirgin how much sex they have]], and showed [[ValuesDissonance a truly awful degree of sexism]],[[note]]"Trapper" got his nickname for using a train toilet to take advantage of his prom date and nobody seems to care that this may have been rape as long as he 'got some'; 'Me Lay' is famous for using his absurdly crass pick-up line, "Me lay, you lay," to acquire a stupendous 'batting average'; the ''doctors''' only interest in the epileptic whore down at the local brothel is in how much fun it is to have your penis inside her when she has a seizure; the reputation of the unit depends in part on the size of the dentist's male organ; the list goes on and on.[[/note]] to produce such a long, successful and at times thoughtful series is a fine example of PragmaticAdaptation, a very nice change in a world full of AdaptationDecay. Of course, Dr. Richard Hornberger, one-half of the writing team behind the pseudonymous author of the original book and kinda probably [[AuthorAvatar the model for Hawkeye]], didn't see it that way, and was [[CreatorBacklash known to rant about it]] at length (in a sequel, ''MASH Mania'', he has his version of Hawkeye remark how he enjoys going down to the State University to "kick the shit out of a few liberals").
