Today we cover Season 1, Episode #24 - Showtime

Directed by Jackie Cooper

Production code J324

Original air date March 25, 1973

Set during the Korean War in the 1950’s

Plot Summary: A USO stand-up comic performs at the 4077th, and the performance is juxtaposed with clips containing the following: Henry’s wife back home gives birth to a son and the camp’s dentist receives his discharge papers and takes great pains to make sure he does not get injured before he sets off for home. Major Burns actually gets the upper hand over Hawkeye with three practical jokes. The first is when he sabotages the still, causing it to spray Hawkeye in the face with gin. The second involves the classic 'bucket-over-the-door' gag. The third and arguably craftier joke has Hawkeye attempting to use the shower, but is annoyed to learn that Frank has switched the showerheads to spray alternately whenever Pierce tries to use it.

Hope you enjoy it,

Kenny, Meds & Al
