To celebrate the 50th anniversary of M*A*S*H, I’m taking a weekly look back at what episode of M*A*S*H aired five decades ago on CBS.
Episode Title: “Yankee Doodle Doctor” (#6, 1×06) [Repeat]
Airdate: Sunday, April 8th, 1972
Written By: Laurence Marks
Directed By: Lee Philips
Nielsen Rank: Unknown
CBS rebroadcast “Yankee Doodle Doctor” 50 years ago today on Sunday, April 8th, 1973.
Here’s the capsule summary from my Episode Spotlight for the episode:
Hawkeye and Trapper sabotage an official Army documentary about the 4077th and instead direct and star in their own honest if irreverent film.
General Clayton, played by Herb Voland, makes his debut in this episode. The character appeared in a total of seven episodes, more than any other general. Also, Marcia Strassman makes her second of six appearances as Nurse Margie Cutler in this episode.
Check back next week for the next installment of 50 Years of M*A*S*H.
