You got 21 out of 21
Potter salutes you!
#19 - Frank Burns received one Purple Heart for being injured in a war zone.
He was injured by a shell fragment. An egg shell fragment cracking a 3 minute egg.
His Purple Heart was taken, by Hawkeye Pierce, and given to a Korean newborn.
The Korean newborn had received a bullet wound, after his mother had been shot while carrying
him, before giving birth in the camp.
Please, MeTV, fix the erroneous question.
Oh, and don't mess with canon.

I got 19 out of 21. Bonus if you remember who Radar's favorite comic book hero is.

21 of 21. I am the Ultimate Masher. Greatest show in history. Favorite scene was Klinger dressed as Statue of Liberty as Gen. McArthur rolls by,

20 of 21. Even though I got the answers they had two horrible questions: Radar is also a fan of horses, and it's his love of them that brings Sophie to Potter. Burns twice RECEIVED the Purple Heart, they were just both stolen from him by Pierce/Trapper/BJ to give to those they felt were more deserving.

I clicked on number three too soon, I missed that it had a "both" option!
Gosh darn it!
Oh well, at least Potter still saluted me!
That's the only thing that really matters in life!
My life's ambition has been satisfied!
I pity those poor folks who only got 19/21!

Um Klinger stayed in Korea after the war to look for his New wife's parents! Yes he eventually got back to the states in After MASH but he stayed for her.

Klinger stayed to help his wife look for her family. I don't know if they found them before After Mash or finally gave up looking. I was thrown on the comic book question because I thought I remembered Charles saying to the guy who stuttered that he enjoyed reading Captain Marvel or something.

Klinger stayed in Korea after the war? I don't remember that. He was back in Toledo by the time "AfterMASH" premiered.

21/21. I salute me too. A good quiz.

18/21! missed 6 thru 8! The others were either obvious or the most logical. About 2: it would have been really weird if Margaret got her nickname from Daddy and weirder still if it had been BJ...LOL!!!
#8 is process of elimination. Charles was not married, and I believe that as part of Frank's backstory, it was mentioned that his wife came from $. You are right about the other questions. If you've seen the episodes enough of course you'll learn the character's backstories. Like Trapper playing football for Dartmouth. He's from the east, so it's logical that he would've attended an eastern school.
Look down below and you can see I commented on Anthony'
s reply. I couldn't help myself. He typed Colonial Potter instead of Colonel Potter!
Question: Can you, or anybody, tell me the connection that M*A*S*H has with Sesame Street? There is a tie-in.
Didn't see that, it's funny! On 8, I remembered Mrs. Burns AFTER I answered! Potter's wife was Mildred and we all know NOW why Winchester never got married...LOL!!
Do you know the answer to my question? Just curious. If not, I have a feeling someone else might. Especially if they have children
There are a few connections.

Big Bird named the bear "Radar" after Burghoff.

Miss Piggy once dressed as Margaret Houlihan.

Loretta Swit appeared on Sesame Street.

M*A*S*H is included for the letter M.

I know there are some others but I'm still waking up LOL.
There was more emphasis on that in the movie. He's the one who has neurosurgeon Capt. Oliver Harmon "Spearchucker" Jones transferred to the 4077 as a ringer. The Jones character was written out of the TV show after just a few episodes.

19/21. Missed #3 (clicked too soon) and #20. In an early episode, Margaret mentions a sister. Wasn't sure if Father Mulcahy ever mentioned his sister's actual name.
JeffTanner nerakr 5 months ago
Yes he did. Many times he said his sister the Sister's, because she was a nun, name was Kathy, or Cathy.
