M * A * S * H is an American television series set in a US Army mobile field hospital ( M obile A rmy S urgical H ospital) during the Korean War . The tragi-comic series based on the movie MASH by Robert Altman from the year 1970 . The main venue is near Uijeongbu in South Korea .


The series was first broadcast on the CBS from September 17, 1972 to February 28, 1983. With its 256 episodes, it lasted longer than the war itself in which it plays. A first episode ("Dear Dad ... Again") was broadcast unsynchronized on N3 in Germany in June 1982 .

The focus of the series is on two surgeons who emphasize the anti-war stance of the series, in particular through their sarcastic attitude towards war and the actions of the military as well as corresponding slogans.

MASH is not just a comedy in the strict sense, but also a bitter tragedy. Characters that were slapstick-like in the first seasons disappear in later seasons or are exchanged for more serious ones (Lieutenant Colonel Blake for Col. Potter, Major Burns for Major Winchester) or appear only rarely (Col. Flagg). The superficial humor never belies the deeply serious discussion of the facets of the war and its justification. The rather low level of detail regarding the actual medical work of the protagonists (this is how the main characters often refer to their work in the original English series as "meatball surgery") supports this statement.

The implementation of the television series for the German-speaking area was taken over by Rainer Brandt , who had already become known through the successful reworking of the television series Die 2 . In addition to the successful translation, which, in contrast to the adaptation of Die Zwei , remained true to the original and did not incorporate any additional pun, the German version also scored with the fact that " canned laughs " were dispensed with. The DVDs that have been released in Germany since 2005 contain two additional English audio tracks. One with and one without a laughing “audience”.

Three other spin-offs emerged from the series : After MASH , W * A * L * T * E * R and Trapper John, MD :

  • After MASH takes place right after the end of the war and takes place in a veterans hospital; only the three characters Sherman Potter, Max Klinger and Father Mulcahy from the original series appear. The series was discontinued after a year.
  • Trapper John, MD is set in the early 1980s and is about John "Trapper" McIntyre's career at the San Francisco Memorial Hospital. The main role of Dr. "Trapper" John McIntyre played Pernell Roberts ; the series ran on American television from 1979 to 1986.
  • W * A * L * T * E * R was broadcast in the USA in 1984 and was discontinued after the pilot episode. A plot was planned around "Radar", who now earns his living as a police officer. Neither After MASH nor W * A * L * T * E * R have been shown on German television so far.

In 2002 the documentary "M * A * S * H": 30th Anniversary Reunion, which was produced by Mike Farrell , was released. In the two-hour show, all of the main characters who were still alive appeared.


M * A * S * H is one of the most successful series in US television history. Although the series had only moderate success in the first season, it became a hit with critics and audiences in the ten following seasons. According to some critics, "the series transformed the medium and made millions members of an imaginary community". The historian Noralee Frankel saw it as "one of the most effective anti-war statements in American history". M * A * S * H received 99 Emmy nominations and won the award fourteen times. The M * A * S * H conclusion of February 28, 1983, at 77%, had the highest ratings of any television series in the States to date . On average, this episode saw around 106 million viewers (121 million in total).

The seasons have been translated into 15 languages ​​and broadcast in 25 countries.


Signpost from M * A * S * H

All the outdoor shots for the series were shot in California, the setting for the camp was near Calabasas in Malibu Creek State Park . Part of the original set was reconstructed in the park, including a signpost as seen in all 256 episodes of the series in the camp. The interior was shot in Studio 9 of the Fox Broadcasting Company in Beverly Hills . The set was used for the second and third seasons of the Vietnam War series NAM - Service in Vietnam .


main characters

Captain Benjamin Franklin "Hawkeye" Pierce

Alan Alda ; Chief surgeon and main character in the series. He is the only one of the actors to appear in all 256 episodes. He is a pacifist, a brilliant surgeon, poker player and womanizer. "Hawkeye" is a character from the novel The Last of the Mohicans , supposedly the only book Pierce's father has ever read. He runs to the chagrin of Frank Burns along with "Trapper" in her tent (the marsh ), a brandy distillery , they also make use of plenty. Pierce is from Crabapple Cove, Maine ; the first few episodes said he was from Vermont .

He is by no means free from character flaws and he hates it when others exaggerate him just because he does great things as a surgeon. Again and again he shows deep compassion for patients, but his character also matures over the course of the series. At the beginning of the series he tries to go after every rock, but avoids any close relationship extremely consistently. In the course of the series, however, there are more and more deeply emotional moments also with his direct colleagues, which he no longer uses only to end up with a woman. He becomes visibly more responsible and thoughtful.

Alan Alda also wrote screenplays for the series and directed several episodes. In addition, he had included as a condition in his contract that an operation scene was shown per episode in order to document the horror of the war. However, this was not always observed.

Captain John Francis "Trapper" McIntyre

Wayne Rogers ; Hawkeye's colleague and best buddy comes from Boston , Massachusetts . Rogers disapproved of the role of "trapper" in that it was modified from the role in the book. In Hooker's novel, “Trapper” is the driving force behind the jokes and jokes. In the series, however, this part was granted to "Hawkeye" as Alan Alda was the better known actor. Rogers left the show at the end of season three saying that his identity had been "stolen".

Lieutenant Colonel Henry Blake

McLean Stevenson ; lovable, idiot superior and commander of the camp, is not made for a managerial position. He maintains a very relaxed and above all unmilitary atmosphere with his subordinates, never punishes disciplinary violations and is generally very chaotic. That's why he regularly has problems with Frank Burns and Margaret Houlihan , but Maxwell Klinger's antics also cause him trouble. His plane, which he is supposed to fly to his home in Bloomington , Illinois , is shot down and there are no survivors. Blake is the first major character to ever die on a US television series. With this, the actor Stevenson was no longer able to return to the series after his voluntary exit at the end of the third season.

Major Frank D. Marion "Ferret Face" (OV: "Ferret Face") Burns

Larry Linville ; is the most senior officer after Lieutenant Colonel Blake and Colonel Potter, respectively, as the deputy commander. A gun fanatic, narrow-lipped, homophobic, overly patriotic, a coward and known for denouncing everyone from the common soldier to Colonel Blake in order to eventually become a commander himself. He's from Fort Wayne , Indiana . As a surgeon and doctor he is rather mediocre and generally unpopular. Burns has an affair with Major Houlihan; they both believe for a long time that nobody in the camp knows about it. He would never leave his wife who is waiting for him for "Hot Lips". After Houlihan turns away from him, he becomes increasingly lonely and even more cranky. After Margaret's wedding at the beginning of Season 6, he goes nuts - and to the annoyance of Pierce and Hunnicutt , Burns is transferred to a military hospital in the United States and promoted to lieutenant colonel .

Linville dropped out of the series because he was afraid of being locked into the character of a malicious naggle. He was valued privately by his colleagues and very popular with the fans, as he had nothing in common with the character of the series. Until his death in 2000 it was him from time to time in chat rooms and forums to H M * A * S * encounter.

Major Margaret "Hot Lips" Houlihan

Loretta Swit ; Head nurse of the camp is the daughter of Colonel "Howitzer" Houlihan. She grew up mainly in various garrison locations and thus had (sometimes intimate) acquaintances with high-ranking officers. She is a real child of the Army and tries to preserve her femininity in the field. She has an affair with Major Burns until she marries Lieutenant Colonel Donald Penobscott at the end of Season 5. However, the marriage breaks up after a short time and she gets divorced. Houlihan is bothered by what they think is Henry Blake's lax approach to army regulations and reports his violations to his superiors, often assisted by Major Burns. After Potter took command of the camp and she gave up her relationship with Burns, she increasingly comes to terms with the doctors.

The series character, just like the series, becomes more serious. She even comes to terms with "Hawkeye" Pierce, sometimes in his arms in seemingly hopeless situations, which "Hawkeye" Pierce never takes advantage of. At the beginning of the series, she is a war-loving and fanatically loyal US military man who never questions orders. At the end of the series, she is a person who no longer accepts critical decisions by superiors and the government without her own judgments and no longer follows them blindly. She visibly matures as a person and as a woman.

Corporal Walter "Radar" O'Reilly

Gary Burghoff ; born in Ottumwa , Iowa , is a half-orphan and popular across the camp. As the company clerk, he is the commander's right-hand man and, overall, the heart of the camp. Without him, nothing would work; it often seems as if only he has the perspective. His nickname "Radar" comes from his almost prophetic gift. For example, he can report approaching helicopters with injuries long before they are noticed by bystanders or announced by radio messages. Also, not only does he usually know what people are saying in advance and then do the right thing; he also “repeats” commands fractions of a second before he gets them. His mother runs the family farm with his uncle Ed. When the uncle dies, Radar is sent home in episode 4 of season 8.

Gary Burghoff is the only leading actor to leave the film crew; he already played the role of "Radar" in the film.

Corporal, later Sergeant Maxwell Q. Klinger

Jamie Farr ; walks around in women's clothes so that he can be released from the army according to § 8 ("Quirk Paragraph"). His superiors don't care, but Klinger holds on to the "quirk" for a long time, so that officers passing through may see him as a madman and he will be dismissed as a result.

The figure Klinger (rank: Corporal) was originally created only as a gag for an episode, but enjoyed great popularity, so that it was expanded and Klinger was part of the regular cast. Klinger is known for the fact that relatives he invents constantly fall ill or die in the United States and that he must therefore go home urgently. He also constantly invents new excuses such as Arabs or Gypsies as ancestors or religious reasons why he has to go home urgently. His attempts are usually seen through immediately. When the series later developed a bit away from the slapstick, he took off his women's clothes. He became a company clerk when Burghoff left the series. At the end of the series, he married a Korean woman ( Rosalind Chao ) and now even voluntarily stays in Korea. In season 10, Klinger was promoted to sergeant.

Klinger is a rascal and quite experienced on the black market, but he is absolutely loyal to his friends and would sacrifice his last shirt for them. It is not uncommon for him to do this to give them pleasure without being able to expect them to even notice.

His hometown of Toledo , Ohio is also the hometown of actor Jamie Farr. He is the only one of the regular cast who actually did his military service in Korea, albeit only after the fighting ended.

First Lieutenant , later Captain Father John Francis Patrick Mulcahy

William Christopher , in the first episode of George Morgan ; is the Catholic Chaplain for Unity and is from Philadelphia , Pennsylvania . Before the war he looked after young people and trained them in boxing, boxing himself and often talks about his sister, who as a nun in a Catholic monastery also looks after young people. Mulcahy sometimes makes a somewhat naive impression, but he by no means lives behind the moon and mostly tries to maintain faith in the good and to keep the troops together. He holds the rank of First Lieutenant until he is promoted to Captain in Season 8 . In addition to his work as the MASH chaplain, he also looks after an orphanage near the camp and regularly organizes relief supplies. In the last episode of the series, he rescues caged prisoners of war from artillery fire, with a grenade exploding right next to him and costing him almost all of his hearing. He then decides to devote himself to caring for the hard of hearing. In the episode "My Dearest Mildred" (4th season) Christopher has a joint appearance with his wife Barbara (as Lt. O'Connor).

Colonel Sherman T. Potter

Harry Morgan ; replaced from the fourth season Henry Blake as commanding officer.

Small, tough, fair, with all my heart husband of his wife Mildred and a professional soldier ( cavalryman ), made himself three years older during the First World War in order to be able to take part in the war. He's something of a father figure in the camp. In contrast to the younger surgeons, Col. Potter seldom attracts attention in the operating room with loose sayings; his role is characterized by a rather dry sense of humor. He is a technically excellent surgeon whose methods and, above all, experience from a total of three wars are highly valued by everyone else. Potter is from Hannibal , Missouri .

There are different details about his first name Sherman Tecumseh . One says the name pays homage to General William Tecumseh Sherman , one of the most famous generals of the American Civil War . According to other sources, he was named after Larry Gelbart's family doctor and the name addition Tecumseh was therefore just a rumor.

Harry Morgan already had his first guest appearance in the series in the episode "Belly in, chest out" / "The General Flipped at Dawn" (3rd season, episode 1). In it he played the wacky General Bradford Hamilton Steele.

Captain BJ Hunnicutt

Mike Farrell ; comes to the camp as a replacement for "Trapper" in the fourth season. Born in Mill Valley , California , the captain is a loyal husband to his wife Peg and a loving but desperate (because absent) father to his young daughter Erin . Even he doesn't know what BJ means in his name; in one episode he claims his mother is Bea and his father is Jay .

Major Charles Emerson Winchester III

David Ogden Stiers ; ingenious snob, gourmet, Harvard graduate, blue-blooded in spirit, luminary in the camp and troublemaker with style, lover and expert for classical music (especially Mozart , Wagner and Ravel ), what Colonel Potter and especially "Hawkeye" and BJ always to the white heat drives. Winchester is Frank Burns' successor from season 6 . He was initially sent to the 4077th as a 48-hour replacement for Major Burns, but was then permanently transferred to the camp because he had won a card game against his superior Colonel Baldwin and had insisted on collecting his winnings. He tries in vain to be transferred to Tokyo General Hospital . His skills as a surgeon are phenomenal and, in his opinion, a waste of the camp (which he lets "Hawkeye" and BJ feel). He's not at all thrilled that he has to work with these "vulgar cretins". He desperately tries to use every opportunity to leave the camp as quickly as possible, for example by curling up with passing generals and writing letters to congressmen. When he is supposed to slander Margaret Houlihan in order to cover his former superior Colonel Baldwin , who would transfer him back to Tokyo, he decides against it and stays at camp.

Winchester quickly transformed from Burns' successor (who was not liked by anybody as a character in the series) into an absolute favorite with viewers. He is from Boston , Massachusetts .

Minor characters

Major Sidney Theodore Freedman ( Allan Arbus )
Psychiatrist and a welcome guest at the camp, regularly plays poker with the residents there. He repeatedly analyzes soldiers who have been badly affected by the war and makes impressive diagnoses. He always asks the right questions, also to the protagonists.
Colonel Flagg ( Edward Winter )
Secret service agents and obsessional neurotics. He owes his freedom of fools to his CIA / CIC / CID ID card. However, he never knows which secret service he actually belongs to at the moment. By his own admission, he is constantly in a state of total confusion (which he maintains himself). He never laughs. Flagg appears regularly in the first seasons in the camp, but with constantly changing names and in easy-to-see disguise. He says of himself that he feels no pain. He suspects everyone to be subversive, he sees enemies and / or spies everywhere. His biggest fans at the camp are Frank Burns and Margaret Houlihan. Furthermore, he often inflicts injuries on himself when it serves to achieve his goals. For his last appearance he is staged a conspiracy by Charles E. Winchester, whom he previously tried to blackmail in order to get incriminating material about Hawkeye, in which he embarrassed himself to the bone. Winchester clearly shows him his intellectual superiority, but Flagg is too stupid to see that.
Igor Straminsky (Joseph Perry, later Jeff Maxwell )
Not too bright kitchen bull. When he's not working in the kitchen, he digs up latrines and has to listen to orders from Frank Burns. With appearances in 66 episodes, Igor is one of the most prominent minor characters.
Sergeant Zelmo Zale ( Johnny Haymer )
Supply sergeant of MASH 4077.
Sister Lt. Ginger Bayliss (Odessa Cleveland)
Sister Lt. Kealani Kellye ( Kellye Nakahara )
starred as a nurse in 86 episodes of the series; their origins and appearance are often the cause of racial insults by Frank Burns.
Sergeant Luther Rizzo ( GW Bailey )
An uneducated, work-shy, greedy southerner and manager of the vehicle fleet who tries to get everyone a "cheap loan" at 100% interest per day (except for Father Mulcahy , to whom he promised a 25% discount to help the orphans of To make a donation to Korea).
Captain Spearchucker Jones (Timothy Brown)
starred in six episodes of the first season and then was dropped from the cast when it was revealed that there were no black surgeons in Korea.
Timothy Brown was also seen in the film MASH , but in the role of Corpsman Corporal Judson.
Captain "Ugly John" Black (John Orchard)
Anesthetist who can only be seen in the first season. The actor has another appearance in episode 182 as Australian military policeman Muldoon.
Soon-Lee Hahn ( Rosalind Chao )
Korean woman who loses her family while fleeing. She later marries Corporal Maxwell Klinger .
Rosie (Eileen Saki, Shizuko Hoshi (3rd season), Frances Fong (4th season))
She owns the “Rosie's”, a pub in a hut across the street from the camp. She is resolute and bribes the strange control officer with schnapps so that he doesn't close the shop for her.
Brigadier General Crandall Clayton (Herb Voland)
In the first season he is Colonel Blake's chief officer and the secret lover of "Hot Lips".
Brigadier General Hamilton Hammond ( George Wood )
Wood already played the role of Brigadier General Hammond in the MASH film.
Lieutenant Colonel Donald Penobscott (Beeson Carroll and Mike Henry)
from the 6th season husband of Major Margaret Houlihan ; however, they soon separate again because he is unfaithful to her.
Roy Goldman (Roy Goldman)
Goldman appeared in the series under his own name, which was also the case in the series A Cage Full of Heroes and is unique in the TV series world. As a character, he is less noticeable for his remarkable appearances than for their number.
Dr. Borelli
visited the 4077th in two episodes as a surgeon, he was played by Alan Alda's father Robert Alda .


The German version was created by Rainer Brandt Filmproductions GmbH in the early 1990s and was shown on ProSieben and the Kabelkanal (now Kabel eins ) from 1990 onwards. The dialogue book was written by Rainer Brandt , who also directed the dialogue with Thomas Wolff . Some scenes that were originally cut were partially dubbed with other speakers for the DVD release.

In 1982 an episode of the series had already been shown in the original English version by some third party programs . At the end of the 1980s, the graduation film “Mach's gut, leb'wohl and Amen” was released under the title M * A * S * H ​​- Part 2 , synchronized for the first time on VHS cassette . This first dubbed version was replaced by the Brandt editing in the course of the series synchronization and has not been used since then.
