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.

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.

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.

Movie Nut

How's the Weather? - S5-E15

Continuity mistake: After Hogan calls off the volleyball game to go see what Kinch wants, he goes into the barracks. From the outside, the door is already open. When the camera shot is indoors, Hogan is opening the door again.

Movie Nut

Oil for the Lamps of Hogan - S1-E14

Other mistake: Anytime Hogan steals one of Klink's cigars from the back of the humidor, he takes the hinge pin out from the left of the box (camera's right). This time, he takes out the pin, got the cigar, and put the pin back in from just what looked like just left (camera's right) of center.

Movie Nut

Happiness Is a Warm Sergeant - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: When accessing the tunnel entrance, usually the spot is in the middle of the side board that is tapped. Newkirk slaps the corner and post of the top bunk.

Movie Nut

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

Revealing mistake: When General Burkhalter has entered the camp and is stopped at the gate, the camera cuts to Hogan and the guys. Above the barracks, you can see the Desilu water tower. (00:15:30)

Movie Nut

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

Audio problem: When Schultz comes into Hogan's office with the pie plate, he starts talking about Klink. As Hogan puts his hand over Schultz's mouth to stop him talking, Schultz is cut off mid-word. The sound he made is heard there, and again at Klink's office, almost like an echo, when everything else said is heard in real time. (00:08:40)

Movie Nut

Will the Blue Baron Strike Again? - S4-E12

Revealing mistake: When Hogan, Newkirk, and Carter are at the Blue Baron's secret airfield, Hogan opens the barrel and stuffs in a rag and lights it so it will be a flare for the Allied bombers. The flight line and the planes on it are an obvious cutout. The fire couldn't have spread to the surrounding ground like it was shown. Also, when the bombs were going off on the airfield, you can see that the explosions are very small charges behind the cut outs.

Color the Luftwaffe Red - S4-E8

Revealing mistake: When the truck with Hogan and company pulls up to the Luftwaffe HQ, the camera pans to the right to look at Klink getting out of the side car. When the camera cuts back to Hogan and company, they shake as if the truck just stopped, but it can be seen that the truck was stationary.

Movie Nut

Color the Luftwaffe Red - S4-E8

Other mistake: The telephone booth located by the Luftwaffe HQ appears to be one of the London police boxes.

Movie Nut

Man's Best Friend Is Not His Dog - S4-E6

Other mistake: When referring to the barracks, usually Klink will refer to the buildings by their numbers (Barracks 2, barracks 3, etc.). In this episode, he calls the building "Building G".

LeBeau and the Little Old Lady - S3-E25

Continuity mistake: When Newkirk and Carter are playing Gin, Newkirk puts a card on his forehead so Carter can't get it. When he puts it on his head, it's about a quarter inch below his hairline. In the close up, the card is now at the hairline. In the wide shot, the card is again about a quarter inch lower.

Movie Nut

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

Continuity mistake: When the British spy is trying to get to the camp, the area around him seems fairly lit, as at dusk, after the sun just set. When he glances toward the gates, the sky is black, suggesting night (the shot of the gate is stock footage). When the shot goes back to the spy, it's dusk again.
