Judge: Name, recipes part of OH eatery with TV tie

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) -- A judge has ruled that the winning bidders of an Ohio hot dog joint made famous on a popular TV show should get their order with everything on it.

The Blade of Toledo reports the judge declared the restaurant's name, Tony Packo's, and its recipes are assets of the company, apparently clearing up questions about whether they were included in the sale.

Tony Packo's was mentioned in episodes of the 1970s and `80s TV series "M-A-S-H," whose cross-dressing character Cpl. Max Klinger craved the hot dogs. The restaurant's man location in Toledo is now decorated with "M-A-S-H" memorabilia.

The judge last month settled a feud over the company's ownership by accepting a bid from a private restaurant group backed by Tony Packo Jr. and his son.
