    I was reading (my favorite M*A*S*H character) McLean Stevenson's bio on IMDB, and came across this little tidbit...

    I tried to find a video of this moment on YouTube with no luck (might not be searching correctly). Anyway, does anyone know if there is a clip of this on the net? If so please point it out to me, I'd really like to see it.

    Boy, I was a dedicated watcher of both those shows on air. Sure don't remember that.

    I would love to see it as well.

    Woah.. I'd love to see that too. I remember my mom bursting into tears when his character's death was announced.

    So he survived the instant death of the plane crash, but died of dehydration in the ocean? He certainly didn't show up in "After M*A*S*H" so he must have been dead. Man, he'd have been better off dieing in the crash.

    You mean than being in "After MASH" of course, and you'd be right. What did that thing last like three episodes?

    Of course Stevenson left by his own hand to make the show Hello Larry, generally considered one of the biggest turkeys in TV history.

    The only "AfterMASH" episode I remember seeing concerned an unconscious patient being brought in, and the staff somehow decided he was a hero from WW2. (Maybe they made that part up to get him admitted.) Turns out they were right, after a fashion. He did fight in the war, but for the Germans...

    Turns out it lasted thirty one episodes. I know I saw the first and probably a few more but I gave up fairly quickly.

    But I still saw more of that show than I did Hello Larry.

    Years later McLean Stevenson said he thought the public were in love with him, but it was really Henry Blake.

    I got good news and bad news.

    The good news is the video does exist. Bad news I cant find it anymore.

    I was doing research on MASH several years ago about why Blake, Frank, and Trapper left the show. I came upon the trivia about Henry Blake and I literally searched for hours for the video. I came across two websites that had it. One video no longer worked but the other website did.

    I cant find the darn thing again and dont have the time to search for it again. It was several years ago so the website may not even exist anymore. I came by it by luck.

    Was it a full sketch or just a quick 10-15 second job?

    There are some Carol Burnett DVDs on Netflix Any idea if it might be on one of those?

    Are the Netflix DVDs full episodes, or the cut down highlights versions that aired in reruns? That might mean the segment isn't available. Look for season 8, episode 22.

    Anybody else notice that this is shot at the Fox Grotto? Planet of the Apes, Logan's Run, Lost in Space? This grotto is about a 1/4 mile from the Ranch where they shot MASH.

    It was a quickie. I think it lasted a good 20 seconds. The description of the scene basically says it all.

    I may possibly saved the link to my personal computer. Next time I go home I will check and see.
