Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Grateful that the doctors of the 4077th have saved his life, an effusive Greek colonel (Titos Vandis) provides the camp with an extra-special Easter dinner -- namely, a live baby lamb. But when softhearted Radar (Gary Burghoff) bonds with the warm-and-fuzzy critter, he despairs at the thought of his new friend being cooked and eaten. Thus is born that celebrated Iowa serviceman, Charles Lamb -- and thus are Hawkeye (Alan Alda) and Trapper (Wayne Rogers) forced to unveil that tasty new delicacy, "Spam Lamb." And on a more serious note, a soldier who shot himself to get a medical discharge unwittingly confesses his indiscretion to the rule-bound Frank Burns (Larry Linville). "Private Charles Lamb" originally aired on December 31, 1974.
