Trapper, Gonzo And The Gang Entertained Us On ‘Trapper John, M.D.’

Here’s an easy question to answer: Was ‘Trapper John, M.D.’ as popular a TV series as ‘M*A*S*H’?

Nope. Not even close. Not even in the same ballpark.

And that’s OK, because how many series were?  That’s doesn’t make ‘Trapper John, M.D.’ a bad show.  In fact, in my humble opinion, it was a very good show!

Airing from September, 1979 until September, 1986, ‘Trapper John, M.D.’ followed the further, uh, life of Trapper John McIntyre….and yes, that Trapper John.

But now Trapper had a younger Doctor that didn’t always like to follow the rules, didn’t care to fit into the stereotype lifestyle of a physician.  After all, Gonzo Gates lived in a motorhome in the parking lot of the hospital, remember?

Who else was in the series?

Well, take a look in the opening of the show below.  Oh, and doesn’t Trapper look suspiciously like one of Ben Cartwright’s young ‘un’s?

 

Classic TV Character: Angel Martin
