When I was a kid I changed the lyrics.

"Through early morning fog I see
Hawkeye out taking a pee
I even saw his wee-ee-nee
He banged it on a willow tree"

Still sing it that way in my head whenever I hear it.

Marcus Aurelius: DecemberNitro: I used to avoid that theme song like the plague. MASH aired as the last of the good late night reruns when I was in high school, so hearing that musty old thing kick in meant it was time for sleep.

I love how ABC would add an upbeat ending so the show wouldn't cut out on a down note.  "Suicide!  Ba-dump-DUMP!"


I love that there are people who forget M*A*S*H's entire original run on tv was on CBS.

punkwrestler: Gubbo: Was it me, or did it change after Radar left.

i think they cut off an opening shot of Radar from the opening credits, and it misses a note or two at the very beginning? Or was I going mad on my watch through when I was locked down and going mad with nothing else to do

It's you they only take him out. If you also look at the intro they made subtle changes when BJ took over for Trapper, but the song is intact. Someone actually compiled all the openings the show had:

ClavellBCMI: Hawk24: The CBS Saturday night lineup in 1972/73:

All in the Family
MASH
The Mary Tyler Moore Show
The Bob Newhart Show
The Carol Burnett Show

Never had to get up and change the channel.

The only one of those shows I usually went and did other things during was Bob Newhart in 1973. I *never* missed Carol Burnett, that cast was absolutely amazing even to 12yr old me (and yes, I cried during the closing segment of her final episode).

Stratohead: Mad Scientist: Hope he didn't commit painless suicide.

Mandel wrote the music Michael Altman wrote the lyrics.


So he committed painful suicide?

That was the 60 minutes clock noise for me.   When I was a kid and I heard that, it was going to be time for bed soon and the weekend was over.
