The popular American war comedy-drama series Mash was the first original spin-off series adapted from the 1970 feature film of the same name. The CBS series went on from 1972 to 1983. The story is about a medical unit stationed during the Korean War.

The story is based on author Richard Hooker‘s experiences as a combat surgeon during the Korean War. The film’s success spawned the TV series. MAS*H debuted on CBS in 1972, becoming one of the most iconic shows of all time.

Charles S. Dubin Reveals Why Radar Left Mash

There were other reasons why Burghoff left: “MAS*H” director Charles S. Dubin claimed that the actor felt like he was not given his proper dues while playing Radar. He further added that some issues regarding Burghoff’s personal life might have led to his untimely departure.

The director talked about how the actor was allegedly having problems with his wife during the time and even struggled to get through a particular scene in his farewell episode. Dubin remembered how Burghoff broke into tears, and he had to stop everything for 15 minutes and calm him down while walking him around the backlot of Fox. The script was about a future with a character whom Radar loved, which might have led to the breakdown.
