About MASH banner pic.jpg
Inspired by Richard Hooker's 1968 bestseller, "MASH: A Novel About Three Army Doctors", and the 1970 Robert Altman film of the same name, M*A*S*H depicted the medical staff and personnel of the 4077th Mobile Army Surgical Hospital, a medical unit situated just a few miles away from the North Korean front near the town of Uijeongbu.

Though the TV series started out as a situation comedy, it evolved over time into a comedy-drama hybrid which, while continuing to show how the members of the 4077th attempted to maintain their individual and collective sanity using humor and hijinks, increased the emphasis on the darker side of war.

Despite a rough start, M*A*S*H became highly successful with 256 episodes over eleven seasons, from 1972 to 1983. Except for seasons one and four, the series was a perennial top 10 hit. Along the way, it earned 14 Emmy Awards, eight Golden Globes, a Peabody, and many other accolades for its writers, producers and actors.

The series originally aired on CBS-TV from September 17, 1972 to February 28, 1983. The show still plays in syndication, most prominently on the Classic TV subchannel MeTV.
