His character "Radar" on M*A*S*H (1972), who showed a fondness for the care of animals, was actually inspired by Gary's true love for wildlife. He once worked for the Animal Rehabilitation Clinic in Southern California, where he nurtured and cared for many species of birds such as the brown pelican, and many other animals including opossums, gray squirrels, raccoons and abandoned creatures needing special attention.

The teddy bear that Burghoff carried as Radar O'Reilly in M*A*S*H (1972) is now at the Smithsonian Institution. However, when the entire set, along with props, was displayed in the Smithsonian immediately after the final episode was aired, there was a note added to the case displaying many props that they had been unable to locate the bear.

Gary's favorite sports are baseball and fishing. He has visited and fished in every state except Alaska, where he plans to visit one day. He is also an inventor and holds several patents for fishing tackle, including Chum Magic, a floating device that can be filled with chum to attract fish. Gary says it helps increase catches by about 300 percent.

The only actor in Twentieth Century Fox's hit film MASH (1970) who was asked to reprise his character for the extremely successful television series. G. Wood played General Hammond in both the movie and television series but he was not a regular character in the series although he was a regularly recurring character.

He left M*A*S*H (1972) after Season 7 because of burnout and a desire to spend more time with his family, though he returned in Season 8 to film a special 2-part farewell episode, "Goodbye Radar".

Left the M*A*S*H series following a series of contract disputes and an insistence that he was being deprived of more commercial success in film and television due to the time demands of the series. Once he left the program, job offers were few, and his career never again reached that level of success.

Gary Burghoff and Susanne Zenor in M*A*S*H (1972)

In several TV talk show interviews many years following the conclusion of M*A*S*H, several of the lead performers of the series confided - each on different occasions - that the series regulars were actually somewhat glad to see Burghoff leave the show. There were continued stories of the actor missing rehearsals, consistently showing up on the set hours late at a time, and even failing to show at all. The actor's primary complaints, they claimed, was a failure to get additional screen time for his character, but whenever changes to scripts were made, he did not show up for filming.

His left hand had 3 fingers that were significantly smaller than those on his right hand. He was born with a condition called Poland syndrome, named after British surgeon Alfred Poland, that is a rare birth defect. His version of Poland Syndrome was more specifically Brachydactyly (Short fingers).
