Farewell Harry Morgan. Liked watching MASH when I was little. 96 is a good long life. Morgan wasn't that much younger than my great grandmother is.

When I read the first half of the thread title, I was like... Harry Morgan's been dead since before Season 1

First words that came to mind were, coincidentally, the first two in mim's clip: horse hockey. RIP. Toodaloo.....

Is the title of this thread a pun on Harry Potter?

Never got into MASH, but I loved watching Dragnet on Nick-at-Night growing up. He'll always be Bill Gannon to me.

RIP. Mr. Morgan!

Never watched MASH, but I remember him from a quite a few Westerns, especially as the Mayor in Support your local Sheriff, and the cowardly Marshal in The Shootist.

RIP.

I liked MASH better with Blake and Trapper, but Col. Potter was ok too. One of Morgan's earlier appearances on the show was pretty loopy as a visiting general... (sound not so great, but scene is hilarious..)

Some of the best were with Blake and Trapper, but I still loved M.A.S.H. up until the point that it got holier than thou. However, when the show lasted 11 years and the Korean War only lasted 3 you would expect the material to be diluted over time.

I still use a line from M.A.S.H. when asked about my religion. "Druid, reform." I'm "allowed to pray at bushes."

The "dreams" episode probably counts as holier than thou, but it was pretty awesome, IMO.

He was a great actor, but the later seasons of MASH weren't all that great. It went from a light herated comedy to a serious drama.

Bill Gannon was also an excellent charater that Morgan played.
