It takes a M*A*S*H fanatic to answer these questions from a vintage quiz book

Try to pass this TV trivia challenge from 1984.

Book cover: Plume Books

You can find all sorts of goodies at garage sales and used book stores. Take this dog-eared paperback, for example. In 1984, Paul Bertling published a book of trivia titled M.A.S.H.: The Official 4077 Quiz Manual.

The 164-page paperback was meant for serious fans. Our in-house M*A*S*H expert even scratched her head on some of the questions. 

We culled some of our favorites. See how well you know M*A*S*H! If you can get 7 or more, we are impressed!

Watch M*A*S*H on MeTV!

5/11.
The early seasons were best. The last couple of seasons seemed too labored.
Worst Episode: Dream Sequence. It's cringe worthy.

In your opinion, IMO the later seasons became more realistic less of a farcical comedy They were all good in there own way.

The episode where Col. Blake was killed leaving Korea was one of the only 2 or 3 times I ever saw my late dad cry. What a terrible, heart-wrenching thing that'd have been for the man's family and friends in reality...

I missed Klinger's bra. I remember him saying he was wearing a Warner bra, when he first meets Potter.

I knew it wouldn't be Maiden form a real brand but still guessed wrong

Don't forget the pre-Potter appearance of Henry Morgan, who reminded the audience it was neat to beat your feet on the Mississippi mud.
Yeah, He was a nutty General who should have retired from the Army years ago.
His name was Major General Bradford Steele
