Top Hat, White Tie and Bomb Sights - S1-E10

Other mistake: When Klink is trying to demonstrate the automated gates to Burkhalter, Kinch makes the gates close, knocking Klink into Burkhalter. Before Klink tells Schultz to open the gates, they are already in motion.

Go Light on the Heavy Water - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: When the smoke bomb goes off, Klink has his monocle on. After the smoke really starts, his monocle is gone without being taken off.

Go Light on the Heavy Water - S1-E9

Other mistake: After the smoke bomb goes off in Klink's office, there is a shot from the outside where the boys get a blanket to catch Klink. If you look at the window of the office behind them, you can see the smoke coming out in an up and down pattern, suggesting the smoke to be coming from a rig controlled by an out-of-sight crew member.

Movies Are Your Best Escape - S1-E8

Visible crew/equipment: When the staff car is entering and coming to a stop in the compound, the reflection of the crew member, camera and lighting rig can be seen in the chrome of the radiator.

Go Light on the Heavy Water - S1-E9

Visible crew/equipment: When the staff car entering the compound stops, you can see a reflection of the crew member stopping the car, the light rig, and the camera in the chrome.

Bombsight - S5-E7

Continuity mistake: The boxes being carried into the buildings in the beginning of the episode were about sixteen inches high by three feet long. When the bomber plane is dropping bombs, what drops out is a lot bigger than the dimensions of the boxes.

Bombsight - S5-E7

Plot hole: Newkirk says the he'll have the film developed in about ten minutes, and goes into Hogan's wall locker. Why? They have a darkroom down in the tunnel.

Bombsight - S5-E7

Visible crew/equipment: After Carter (hidden in the trash can) switches the fake blueprints for the real ones, Kinch wheels the trashcan past Klink. As he does so, the shadow of the camera is seen on the can.

Operation Hannibal - S4-E17

Revealing mistake: While talking about Von Baler's daughter, Hogan is facing the building talking with Carter and Newkirk. Behind him is an open area of the camp. If you look, you can see that there is no guard in the tower, no shadow of the tower of the guard hut (the sun is behind them and Hogan), and the snow is piled up about three feet behind Hogan, suggesting that the background is a wall mural in the studio.

Clearance Sale at the Black Market - S4-E1

Revealing mistake: The Major goes to shoot out the light that the boys have turned on so Kinch can get the pictures. The first shot is angled too low to hit the bulb, but there is no impact on the front of the door's crosspiece; the smoke and dust comes from behind it. The second shot gets the bulb, but there is no muzzle flash, just sound. Also, there is no impact mark on the brick wall behind the bulb.

Clearance Sale at the Black Market - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: When Hogan is talking to Kiegel, Hogan's eyes are level as he looks across the table at Kiegel. After Kiegel says "Not good enough!", the camera cuts to a close up of Hogan, and he's now looking up as if the Major is standing. A moment later, the Major stands and leaves.

The Klink Commandos - S5-E3

Plot hole: In his German uniform, Col. Hogan wears a number of decorations, among them the Iron Cross first and second class. When did he earn those if he has just been drafted for a suicide mission? After all he was not posing as a Wehrmacht soldier for a change but wore the uniform "officially". (00:17:00)

The Gold Rush - S1-E18

Other mistake: After the truck is stopped, Newkirk tosses a dart at the tyre in order to flatten it. Since the tyre hit was the rear tire, there should have been the track from the front tire, but wasn't. Also, a puny, hand-tossed dart couldn't have penetrated the thick construction of a heavy-duty truck tire, let alone flatten it in twenty seconds.

The Gold Rush - S1-E18

Other mistake: When stopping the truck and Schultz, the area directly behind Carter and LeBeau can be seen to be a matte painting. The reason is because where they are is completely covered in snow, but the open area is very little, and there is a huge snowdrift piled up at the wall.

Movie Nut

Happy Birthday, Adolf - S1-E17

Visible crew/equipment: When spying on a gun emplacement, LeBeau is dressed as a little old lady. When putting on his shawl before going back, you can see the studio lighting reflected on the glasses he wears.

Movie Nut

Anchors Aweigh, Men of Stalag 13 - S1-E16

Visible crew/equipment: When in Klink's office, Hogan gives Klink the bum's rush, convincing him that he's tired. After Klink sits, the camera pans around. As it does so, you can see the shadow of the camera rig.

Movie Nut

Klink's Masterpiece - S6-E3

Other mistake: When the boys are working on the "jigsaw" map, Klink and the guard come in. There is a gust of wind from their entrance. Trouble is, the gust that blows the pieces comes from behind LeBeau, blowing the pieces toward Newkirk's bunk, rather than toward the camera.

Movie Nut

The Softer They Fall - S5-E18

Continuity mistake: Klink comes out with the "insurance policies" in his hand. They are lying beside each other, with a little space between them, and tilted in one position in his hand. When the camera goes into a close up, they are touching, and in a different position.

Movie Nut

Get Fit or Go Fight - S5-E16

Continuity mistake: When the woman is kissing Klink in town, she hands a note to the boy who puts the note inside the spare tire's hubcap. There was no tape to stick it anywhere, yet when LeBeau goes to get the note, it is stuck with tape to the center of the spare tire.

Movie Nut

How's the Weather? - S5-E15

Audio problem: When Klink comes into the barracks, he puts the bottle of alcohol into his jacket to hide it. When he does, you hear a distinct clink (no pun intended) of glass on metal. None of the POWs wear anything that would cause this.
