Watch the Disney movie "The Cat from Outer Space" and you'll see McLean Stevenson playing a harried doctor, and Harry Morgan as a lunatic general.

Harry Morgan's performance as General Bartford Hamilton Steele is actually what won him the role as Colonel Potter. The producers at M*A*S*H were very impressed with him and when McLean Stevenson left, they asked Morgan to replace him.
