Gallery: Father Mulcahy Through the Years


William Christopher was 40 when he started playing Father Mulcahy on M*A*S*H in 1972, 51 when the series ended in 1983, and 53 when AfterMASH ended its short run. How much did he and his character change over the years? Check out this gallery to find out:

The gallery features screenshots from two episodes from all 11 seasons of M*A*S*H. As a bonus, I’ve included two screenshots from the first season of AfterMASH and one screenshot from the second season.

  1. Maybe I missed something, but Fr Mulcahy never wore a dress, and Klinger was never dressed as a priest.

    1. That’s weird. I distinctly remember writing out William Christopher’s info at the start of the post. I wonder what happened. Anyway, I’ll fix it.
