AfterMASH Bumper, Version 1

Here’s a “bumper” for AfterMASH that aired near the end of the first half of the hour-long premiere (“September of ’53”) in September 1983. These bumpers were used to remind viewers that the very show they were in the process of watching would, in fact, return after a commercial break.

I can’t say whether bumpers were used during every episode of AfterMASH or just during the premiere.


  • David Goehner says:

    They were in pretty much every — if not all — of the episodes. These would appear at the start of the commercial break just before the final tag/ending credits. “M*A*S*H” had a similar one (showing flying helicopters) during its network run.

    I was hoping you’d chime in, David.

  • Big Daddy O'Reilly says:

    It almost sounds like he’s saying “AltarMASH”, lol.
