The classic television show M*A*S*H was first based off of a film of the same name. The film itself was a smashing success, but when the attempt at making a sequel, M*A*S*H Goes to Maine, was a terrible disaster, creators decided to opt for a television series instead. The original premise was based on the 1968 novel by Richard Hooker entitled Mash: A Novel About Three Army Doctors. Since the film adaptation was met with such glowing reviews, and the creators knew they could do so much more with the original story, the first episode of the television series aired on September 17th, 1972. Today, it still remains one of the most popular television shows to ever grace America.

The dark comedy revolves around the members of the 4077th Mobile Army Surgical Hospital, stationed in Korea during the Korean War. The amazing ensemble cast was filled with versatile actors, who could perform stellar comedy, while also remaining serious and emotional during the more dramatic scenes.

Because much of the series aired during the highly controversial Vietnam War, which had many parallels to the Korean War, the creators knew that the show couldn’t be strictly comedic. While it still remained a great form of entertainment to audience members looking to wind down after a long day, the show wasn’t afraid to be dramatic, serious, and even incredibly sad at times. Many fans of the show agree that this is a major part of what made M*A*S*H such an amazing show.

Today, M*A*S*H still airs in syndication, with audience members all over the country. Even though show is considered old by today’s standards, it’s also, in a sense, timeless. The show still hits just as hard as it did in the 1970s, and even children can enjoy the comedic elements.

M*A*S*H ran for eleven seasons, airing a total of 256 episodes, until it finally ended on February 28th, 1953 with the record-breaking series finale, “Goodbye, Farewell, and Amen.” Today, we’re going to take a closer look at what made this finale so special, as well as some behind the scenes secrets you didn’t know! Make sure you stick around, because we’re going to reveal how the creators were able to adapt to a sudden natural disaster on set, and even turn it into a part of the show!
