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.

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.
