Six Lessons from Madame LaGrange - S5-E22

Character mistake: The SS guard salutes Major Hochstetter with his palm out, in the British fashion. Firstly, German soldiers salute palm-down, secondly, by the Wehrmacht (and SS) military protocol, he should just click his heels and not salute at all when receiving an order.

Bombsight - S5-E7

Factual error: About 10 minutes into the show, Newkirk is using binoculars to watch Klink put the combination into his safe. He goes one direction for the first number, the opposite direction for the second number, then goes in the same direction for third number. Opposite for the fourth number. For the radial tumblers to set, it has to be alternating directions.

Show generally

Factual error: The program depicted WW2, 1939-1945 but several vehicles are 1947-48's.

I Look Better in Basic Black - S1-E28

Other mistake: When Hogan asked the girls if they wanted to try to escape to England, the one in "basic black" said that anything is better than being booked in a German prison camp for three years. How did she know when the war would be over?

One Army at a Time - S5-E20

Continuity mistake: Col. Klink is eating lunch. The meat on his plate moves from the left side to the right. (00:16:00 - 00:17:00)

The Purchasing Plan - S4-E22

Other mistake: In the tunnel where the prisoners are storing ammunition. Col Hogan tells his men the next one that lights a cigarette gets a court martial. The tunnel is lit by open flames. (00:06:00)

Snag.1

Up in Klink's Room - S4-E21

Continuity mistake: Col Hogan eats Col Klink's chicken leg and places it back on the plate with meat still on the bone. When Col Klink picks up the chicken leg after, there is no meat on the bone. It's stripped bare. (00:01:00 - 00:03:00)

Snag.1

The Safecracker Suite - S1-E27

Continuity mistake: While Klink is talking to Hogan and the Major, the chair next to the door is almost centered under a picture frame. When the Major is arrested the chair is moved to the left. When Klink sits down, the chair is centered again. (00:03:50)

The Kommandant Dies at Dawn - S5-E6

Continuity mistake: As Schultz is eating from the tray he predominantly uses his left hand in each change of shot. When he takes the last piece, he has the toothpick in his left hand, when the shot changes he now has it in his right hand. (00:09:50)

Klink's Masterpiece - S6-E3

Continuity mistake: As Hogan's telling Klink about the drawings, his left arm is extended. The next shot his arm is resting on the cigar box, then back to being extended and notice the pencil under the note pad. Next shot, arm is back on the box and pencil is gone. (00:04:45)

What Time Does the Balloon Go Up? - S3-E24

Plot hole: Hogan has the men fly kites to get wind data and build a hot air balloon for a man to escape in. In reality, kites and hot air balloons are pretty much mutually exclusive - if there's enough wind to fly kites, one can't launch a hot air balloon, and vice versa.

The Klink Commandos - S5-E3

Revealing mistake: The first shot of the train the view is normal. Then after Lebeau starts in reverse you can see the smoke trail going in the wrong direction. The final shot shows the train moving in reverse, but notice the smoke trail is going to the rear of the train instead of the front as it should be, since it's moving in reverse. (00:15:05 - 00:22:25)
