*** "A Smattering of Intelligence" (S2) - Flagg does his own oral roll call (sensing a pattern here?) of the cast, as he deduces the personnel of the 4077th may need more observationobservation. TV Land, which has recently brought the show back, also cut the scene where Hawkeye identifies himself to Flagg as Dr. Wassmerman ("I'm looking for a cure for V.D. and thought this'd be a good place to start.")

* CaliforniaDoubling:
** As with the film, exteriors for the show were filmed at the Fox Ranch (now Malibu Creek State Park) near Malibu. California is about as mountainous as Korea, but the doubling is obvious in the winter episodes, where, aside from a lack of snow in any such episode, the surrounding plant life is green and alive.
** Additionally, due to a limited shooting schedule at the ranch quite a lot of "outdoor" scenes (particularly those taking place at night, and/or in the immediate vicinity of the compound) were rather obviously shot on a soundstage. During season eleven, ''all'' scenes were shot on the soundstage because the ranch set burnt down in a wildfire during production of the finale (which was actually the first episode shot that season), and it was deemed pointless to build a new one so close to the end.

** In Season 1's "The Ringbanger", Hawkeye and Trapper [[{{Gaslighting}} gaslight]] a gung-ho colonel (LeslieNielsen) - with twice the casualty rate but half the ground - into thinking he has battle fatigue and needs time to cool off. "White Gold", the penultimate episode of Season 3, ends with Hawkeye and Trapper removing Colonel Flagg's appendix to send him stateside for severel weeks. Season 7's "Preventative Medicine" has Hawkeye perform an unnecessary appendecemy on a colonel to stop him from provoking the enemy to attack him so he could take a hill he was ordered to avoid. [[note]]Interestingly enough, the original script for "Preventative Medicine" had B.J. going along with Hawkeye's scheme (just as Trapper had in the earlier episode), but actor Mike Farrell objected as he believed that B.J. would never do such a thing. The producers eventually agreed, so they let Farrell and Alda ad-lib their way through the scene, acting and reacting the way they felt their characters would.[[/note]]Ken Levine, writer of the latter episode, said the recycling was unintentional, and when they discovered it they were so embarrassed that they deliberately [[http://kenlevine.blogspot.ca/2007/01/mash-oscar-show.html had it scheduled opposite that year's Academy Awards]] so fewer people would see it.
