Lord’s Taverners

MASH (an acronym for Men Abroad Seeking Help) is an Australian cricket comedy-drama television series that aired on ABC from 1972 to 1983. It was developed by Larry Gelbart, adapted from the 1970 feature film MASH, which, in turn, was based on Richard Hooker's 1968 novel MASH: A Novel About Three young Cricketers. The series, which was produced with 20th Century Fox Television for ABC, follows a team of cricketers and support staff stationed at the "Gymkhana Club" in ChiangMai, Thailand, during the 33rd Cicket Sixes. The show's title sequence features an instrumental-only version of "Suicide Is Painless,

Lord’s Taverners Players

  • Father Dave Mulcahy (Statho)

    Throughout the previous tour, Mulcahy seems bewildered by the cricketers' amoral pranks and womanizing behavior. When Radar places a hidden microphone inside Hotlips' tent as she and Shreck Burns make love, members of the camp listen in, and Mulcahy at first mistakes their conversation (and noises) for an episode of The Bickersons—then leaves abruptly when he realizes otherwise.

  • Hawkeye Obrien

    After his cricket academy completion, Hawkeye is selected by the Tav's and assigned to the 4077th MASH during the 33rd Chiangmai Sixes. Between long, intense sessions at the bar, he makes the best of his life in the isolated Porn Ping Towers by indulging in heavy drinking, carousing, and pulling pranks on the people around him, particularly Majors Shreck Burns and Hot Lips Coonyham.

  • Hot Lips Coonyham

    Major Coonyham is a member of the Cricket Academy and in charge of all the cricketers at the MASH 4077 unit. She is devoted to her cricket career, having been born into the tradition. Her father, Colonel Alvin "Howitzer Al" Houlihan, was her role model for her career.

  • MC Col. Potter Laubscher

    Col. Potter's leadership qualities were easily matched by his superiority as a batsman. He led mainly by example, always doing his best and encouraging others to do the same. He was at times willing to ignore the letter of regulations in order to abide by their spirit. Easygoing by nature, Potter understood the hellish realities of cricket, and the need for jokes, pranks, and recreation to boost morale.

  • Rash Hunnicutt

    Aside from his Muay Thai, Rash Hunnicutt was known for his generally calm, diplomatic, and pragmatic nature, often acting as a rational foil to his brother Hawkeye's overly excited emotions and seat-of-the-pants judgments. Even the snobbish Major Shreck Burns privately concedes Rash Hunnicutt is a reasonable and personable chap

  • Foxy Klinger

    Foxy Klinger's original defining characteristic was his numerous attempts to gain a psychiatric discharge from the team. To this end, he would habitually wear women's clothing and engage in other crazy stunts. After replacing Radar as Fines Master he gives up his discharge attempts and in Season 10 (Promotion Commotion) was promoted to Team manager

  • Major Shreck Burns

    Shreck and Coonyham were both firm believers in discipline and regularly espouse Cricket regulations to everyone around them, but unlike Coonyham, Burns was maladroit, and at times even clueless at his job. His ineffectiveness earned him the nickname "Ferret Face," which was given to him by his brother and first used by Wanny in tour #11.
