The ninth episode of M*A*S*H aired 50 years ago today. “Henry, Please Come Home” aired for the first time on Sunday, November 19th, 1972 on CBS.
Here’s the capsule summary from my Episode Spotlight for the episode:
After the 4077th receives a 90% efficiency rating, Henry is assigned to a hospital in Tokyo, leaving Frank in charge. Hawkeye, Trapper, and others conspire to get Henry back.
Although aired ninth, this was actually the second episode to be filmed.
