M*A*S*H Ad: "Bottle Fatigue"

Ironic they would use a still of a pickled Winchester (from the episode "Mr. and Mrs. Who?") in an ad for a show about Hawkeye quitting drinking. And what happened to B.J.'s mustache?

M*A*S*H Ad: "War For All Seasons"

"Happy Fun New Year" feels like a tagline that was translated into another language, and then back into English...

M*A*S*H Ad: "Lend A Hand"

"Hawkeye Missing" is more than a little misleading...and check out that groovy outfit Dr. Borelli is wearing!

M*A*S*H Ad: "Period of Adjustment"

Oh man do I love that shot of B.J....

M*A*S*H Ad: "That Darn Kid"

I love the idea of 20th Century Fox sending out promo stills of the goat.

M*A*S*H Ad: "The Yalu Brick Road"

This ad is clever, if awkward...they took a shot of Klinger from Season Eight's "Too Many Cooks (when he changed the Mess Tent into Chez Klinger) and used it for this episode, which, plot-wise, sort of sounds like it matches.

Hawkeye, for his part, just looks annoyed.

M*A*S*H Ad: "Guerilla My Dreams"

It took me a minute or two to figure out what episode they were talking about here...then I saw that small shot Mako in the center, which would mean this was for Season Eight's "Guerilla My Dreams." Not the most accurate write-up...

M*A*S*H Ad: "The Price"

A very silly write-up for what was one the show's more serious episodes. I guess the copywriter just couldn't resist.

M*A*S*H Ad: "Rainbow Bridge"

"And almost start World War III" is a little much...

M*A*S*H Ad: "Good-Bye, Radar"

Kind of an odd description of the episode, but thank goodness we know who played "Hondo"!

M*A*S*H Ad: "Goodbye, Farewell, and Amen"

Not sure when this blurb is from, presumably its sometime around late 1983 or 1984, when some stations were re-running the final episode. The blurb itself is remarkably well-written; methinks who ever wrote it was a M*A*S*H fan.

What I also find interesting is that still of the four doctors--I've never seen that particular promo shot before. Its not a scene from the show, so its some sort of staged PR piece.

M*A*S*H Ad: "Oh, How We Danced"

B.J. looks appropriately sad, Hawkeye looks...kinda manic, actually.

M*A*S*H Ad: "To Market, To Market"

Apparently the joke Hawkeye and Trapper heard was so funny they kept laughing all the way into the next episode!

M*A*S*H Ad: "Pilot"

This is one weird ad...picture and copy! Would you watch this series?

Monday, May 16, 2011

M*A*S*H Ad: "Officer of the Day"

An ad from one of my all-time favorite episodes. Bonus: clip out the Hawkeye and Trapper stamp and save 'em all!

M*A*S*H Ad: "Are You Now, Margaret?"

You could argue Hot Lips should be front and center on this one, but otherwise this ad is fairly accurate.

Should "Commies" really be capitalized?

Saturday, May 14, 2011

M*A*S*H Ad: "Picture This"

Hot Lips gives this episode the thumbs up!

Friday, May 13, 2011

M*A*S*H Ad: ?

Ashamed as I am to admit this, I cannot for the life of me figure out which episode this ad is referring to! Anyone have an idea?

Thursday, May 12, 2011

M*A*S*H Ad: "Back Pay"

If you can forgive Hawkeye's odd positioning, this ad works relatively well--they even worked in Col. Potter's disapproving look!

Wednesday, May 11, 2011

M*A*S*H Ad: "Life Time"

This episode is so special B.J. shaved his mustache off just for the ad!

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

M*A*S*H Ad: "Mr. and Mrs. Who?"

For once, a fairly accurate description of an episode's plot!

M*A*S*H Ad: "Rally 'Round The Flagg, Boys"

This was a tough one--I'm guessing it was from Season Seven's "Rally 'Round The Flagg, Boys" where Col. Flagg accused Hawkeye of being a Commie.

Of course, he did that in every episode...

M*A*S*H Ad: "Trick or Treatment"

This ad actually managed to get the episode title in, albeit indirectly. I wonder what other show made up this channel's "Great new comedy hour"?

Friday, May 6, 2011

M*A*S*H Ad: "As Time Goes By"

This ad isn't about the episode per se, but since "As Time Goes By" was the last episode of M*A*S*H filmed, it was at this shoot that all the press showed up to watch history being made.

M*A*S*H Ad: Making of M*A*S*H"

I'm not sure what "making of" special this is--probably 1981's Making M*A*S*H--in any case, its fairly unusual for a UHF station to run a special like this.

Sad to say, I still have never seen it!

M*A*S*H Ad: "Identity Crisis"

This description makes no mention of the main plot, involving Father Mulcahy and a young wounded soldier. *Sigh*

What's with the old, non-mustachioed shot of B.J.?

M*A*S*H Ad: "Goodbye Radar"

I love how they make it sound just a bit like Radar's going home has some connection to The White Shadow...TV show crossover!
