EPA invented and honored Ricard Windsor. On the first season of the TV show M*A*S*H, Hawkeye and Trapper John invented and honored what fictional character?
To get some additional supplies for the local orphanage, Hawkeye and Trapper invent a fictional Captain Tuttle (based on Hawkeye’s imaginary friend from childhood). The deception slowly grows until everyone at the 4077th believes Tuttle to be a real person, and the situation worsens when General Clayton decides to award Tuttle a medal and put his picture in the newspaper. Hawkeye and Trapper end their problems by faking Tuttle’s death and claiming that he had asked for all of his back pay to be donated to the orphanage. As the episode ends, they joke with each other about where they got a pair of boots they used for the faked death – from the equally fictional Major Murdock.
