Yes, Soap. I forgot all about that.

Probably a good move. Were there any flaming gay characters on TV in the early 1970's? I don't even remember any subtle gay characters back then.


"Dallas" did a storyline on one in a serious way. He would not have bee portrayed as "openly gay" but just acting quite that way. Wasn't there a guy on "Bewitched" that came off that way?

In any case, the gag would not have worked with that type. It would have been one-shot. Klinger was funny because he was a regular guy pretending to be nuts. He even refused a discharge for being homosexual and transvestite, knowing what it would do to his life.

I find the most ironic thing to be that after many years of trying to get discharged and sent home, Klinger was the one character that stayed in Korea after the end of the war.

Not sure about that
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/AfterMASH
Max Klinger had found himself in trouble with the law in Toledo. Colonel Potter wrote to him and offered him a job as his administrative assistant. Klinger's nemesis at General General was D'Angelo's executive secretary Alma Cox (Brandis Kemp), a mean-spirited woman who was forever trying to "get the goods" on him, from rifling through his desk to giving him just one day to prepare for a civil service exam, the latter of which, despite her underhanded efforts, he still manages to pass.

Season Two opened with Klinger escaping from the River Bend County Jail to attend the birth of his child and remaining a fugitive until a judge sent him to the psychiatric unit at General General, where Klinger feigned insanity to avoid prison and the Potters took in Soon Lee and the (as yet unnamed) baby. Mike D'Angelo was transferred to Montana and was replaced by smarmy new administrator Wally Wainwright (Peter Michael Goetz). Anne Pitoniak was brought in to replace Barbara Townsend as Mildred Potter. David Ackroyd was promoted to a regular cast member after multiple guest appearances in the second half of the first season. An attractive new psychiatrist, Dr. Lenore Dudziak (Wendy Girard), arrived to begin the daunting task of evaluating Klinger, while Potter was horrified that Wainwright assigned Alma Cox as his new secretary.

He supposedly took a local discharge but by the fall TV season was back in Toledo, ended up in county jail.

Never saw AfterMASH but in the last episode of MASH didn't he decide to stay? I haven't watched that episode in over 30 years but that was how I remembered it.

He said he was staying, but his wife found her family right away and they both moved to Toledo. He could not get an apartment with a Korean wife so Potter set him up in MO and the VA hospital.
