Are these true or false M*A*S*H facts?

Some of these details are real, and some of them are made up!

M*A*S*H isn't just a great sitcom; it's also a historical document. As memories of the Korean War fade into the distant past, we increasingly rely on artifacts and retellings to keep the lessons fresh. After all, if we don't learn from history, we're all doomed to repeat it.

So tell us: Did you learn from history? Were you paying close attention to M*A*S*H, or is the memory fading into your distant past? Here are some quick questions to see if you're able to recall trivial facts about the long-running series. Be sure to share your thoughts and your score in the comments section below!

Question #7's answer here isn't correct. "Welcome to Korea" does -not- appear anywhere in that 4th season opener. While there -are- some words in the opening of that episode -- such as a quote by Eisenhower -- the words "Welcome to Korea" are not there. I just checked my DVD of that one to confirm this.

And, regarding #9, there are several other characters who were played by more than one performer. Sherman Potter was played by 2 people in the "Dreams" episode. Donald Penobscott was played by 2 different people. And a whole platoon of actresses played somebody named "Nurse Able" or "Nurse Baker."

Sorry to see there still force feeding two hours of M*A*S*H to the viewers every night. Makes me kind of glad we don't get MeTV up here.

I can't believe we're already up to Season 10! When the Christmas season began (late Nov) Frank Burns just left! I remember putting up my Christmas clock just as Hawkeye was saying, "Goodbye, Ferret Face!"

I wouldn;t say horrible, just tiring. Just put something else...like Dragnet..in the 6 PM hour and keep the 7 PM hour for M*A*S*H*

I wish they would have had a Col. Flagg week. He was so funny.
