Corporal Muldoon was a character who appeared in the Season 8 episode of the CBS-TV series M*A*S*H titled Captains Outrageous. The part of Muldoon was played by actor John Orchard, who also played the recurring role of Ugly John Black in Season 1 of the series.
Muldoon, an Australian non-commissioned officer and regular at Rosie's Bar, allowed the establishment to operate provided he received free liquor when he ordered "coffee". When Charles, who was tending bar in that episode, and unaware of the arrangement between Muldoon and Rosie, had the audacity to charge Muldoon for his drink, soon after which Rosie's was temporarily closed down. When Rosie, who was laid up sick in O.R. with cracked ribs stemming from getting caught up in a big bar fight was sparked between an argument between a Turkish and Greek soldier, was able to return to the bar, Muldoon declared it off limits; when she wondered why, he asserted "You shouldn't have left "Chauncey Uppercrust" (what he sarcastically dubbed Charles) here behind the bar!"
