Welcome to Korea (60 mins.) - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: When Radar and Hawkeye leave the 4077, the jeep they're in has its windshield in the fold-down position over the hood, but in the two shots from behind Hawkeye and Radar when they see the checkpoint up ahead and Hawkeye speeds up, the windshield has vanished and there's a star on the hood.

Revealing mistake: At the end, in the shot of Klinger singing while he's sewing a dress on his White Rotary sewing machine, as he's guiding the fabric forward it isn't actually under the machine's presser foot, which it needs to be in order to be stitched by the needle.

Adam's Ribs - S3-E11

Continuity mistake: When Hawkeye's in the mess tent holding the food tray the succotash is on the left and potatoes on the right with a space in the middle, so when Igor serves him creamed corn offscreen the corn should be between the potatoes and succotash, but when Hawkeye's having the fit and walks away from Igor, the potatoes (a higher mound) are now in the center space between corn and succotash.

Kim - S2-E6

Other mistake: When Hawkeye and Trapper are arguing with Henry about not sending the little boy to the orphanage, Henry says, "Look, you think I wanna send this little fella away? I got two kids of my own. I'm a former child myself," but at the end of season 1 Henry's wife delivered a boy, whom Henry was aching to be with, so Henry really has three kids.
