|TOUCAN'S TRIVIA: Ever wonder why the TI-99/4A version of M*A*S*H had a white background when the show itself rarely, if ever, had snow? Well, according to Paul Munsey, "A bug in the graphics wouldn't consistently draw all the pixels of the helicopter on any background color but white. Somehow the motion triggered some problem and our only known solution was to use a white background."|
|TOUCAN'S TRIVIA: 20th Century Fox held a competition to see who could design the best sequel to M*A*S*H. By mailing in a description of your idea for M*A*S*H II, you could win a prize depending on how the top guns at 20th Century Fox viewed your idea. The Grand prize winner (awarded to the person that sent in the best game design) would get their name printed on every copy of the cartridge sold (supposedly on the back of the box) and also $25,000 in cash. 4 First Prize winners would receive AMC Jeeps, 400 Second Prize winners a TI-99/4A system, and 4000 Third Prize winners free games from 20th Century Fox. In April 2000 there was a post to rec.games.video.classic from someone who sent in a game design and won Second Place in the competition, click here to read that story.|
|TOUCAN'S TRIVIA: The Atari 2600 version of the game came packaged with a free M*A*S*H T-Shirt (which can be seen in the game competition ad).|
