List of M*A*S*H episodes

"Bug Out" is a special hour-long episode of M*A*S*H. With North Korean forces on the march, the 4077th must bug out and move the entire camp, but a soldier who has just had serious spinal surgery cannot be moved. Hawkeye, Radar and Margaret stay behind as the rest of the camp tries to set up a new base. Footage from this episode of the 4077th tents being packed up was later recycled in the series finale "Goodbye, Farewell and Amen".

During "Bug Out", Colonel Potter is offered Rolaids by a Korean trying to sell him land for relocation. The Korean War lasted from 1950 to 1953; Rolaids was not released to the American public until 1953.
