Hawkeye Pierce Test
| Benjamin Franklin "Hawkeye" Pierce
| Character Information
Hawkeye Pierce (given name Benjamin Franklin Pierce) is a surgeon on M*A*S*H.
Lisa got eardrops at Dr. Hibbert's office and had to wait 20 minutes for them to sink in. Hibbert offered her a M*A*S*H coloring book (with Hawkeye and his bunkmate B.J. Hunnicutt on the cover) in case she got bored. As he handed her the book, he glanced at the pictures and chuckled at one of them as he read the caption aloud: "Hawkeye's antics irritate the other surgeons."
Behind the Laughter
Hawkeye Pierce was the central protagonist of the M*A*S*H TV series and was one of the few characters to appear for the entire run of the show. His trademark was using humor to cope with the stress of front-line surgery. He was portrayed by Donald Sutherland in the film and Alan Alda in the TV series.
