THE M*A*S*H HOT DOG CONNECTION!

packos-map

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio judge’s decision means a hot dog chain that
earned a place in pop culture on the TV series “M.A.S.H.” will stay in the family.

The family feud over ownership of Tony Packo’s played out in a Toledo courtroom Tuesday.

A county judge gave control of the company to a private restaurant group that
plans to put Tony Packo Jr. and his son back in charge of the chain.

The restaurant was made famous 35 years ago after being mentioned on six
episodes of “M.A.S.H.” during the show’s run in the 1970s and ’80s. The dogs
were favorites of cross-dressing Corporal Max Klinger on the show.

(Note: Klinger is played by real-life Toledo, Ohio native Jamie Farr, shown below.)

A dispute between descendants of the restaurant’s namesake erupted this
summer, causing both sides to make bids to take over the company thats
been a family tradition since 1932.
