Heil Klink - S2-E22

Continuity mistake: The light switch for Klink's office is usually located right next to the door, with the wires going up toward the ceiling. This time, the switch is missing.

Tanks for the Memory - S2-E9

Factual error: In the very end, Klink comes up to the boys. As he stands beside Hogan, the Desilu Studios Water Tower is present behind them.

Tanks for the Memory - S2-E9

Plot hole: When the tank runs into Burkhalter's car, it and the car are destroyed. The guard tower is outside the fence. After the collision, you see the debris is covered by the tower roof. How did the tower get that far inside the wire?

Movie Nut

The Return of Major Bonacelli - S4-E25

Continuity mistake: When Klink is insisting on talking to the cook, Bonacelli has his hands clasped in front of his plate. When the angle changes, his hands are down on wither side of his plate.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Throughout the whole series, there are references to the building that houses Hogan and company. Sometimes it's Building 2, sometime it's Building 3. Also, there are times that Hogan's building has a direct view of the Commandant's building, and times when there is a building between them.

Movie Nut

The Pizza Parlor - S1-E22

Continuity mistake: Newkirk holds takes Schultz's rifle so Schultz can play in the game. On Schultz's second hit, you see Newkirk clapping. In the close up, you see Newkirk's hands firmly on the butt of the rifle. Also, Newkirk is holding the rifle with the muzzle in the dirt. This would put a plug of dirt into it, but when Klink takes it away, you can see that the muzzle is clean and clear.

Movie Nut

The Gold Rush - S1-E18

Other mistake: The truck was stashed behind Hogan's barracks. The Kommandant's office was on the other side of the building. While stealing the boxes of gold, there would be no way that the POWs would have been able to see any approaching figure.

Movie Nut

How's the Weather? - S5-E15

Continuity mistake: Before Hogan lets Klink have the ball to hit, the camera does a close up on the volleyball. It can be seen to be a dull light brown color. After Klink hits it, and it soars up into the air the camera cuts to Hogan and Klink, and back again. When it does the ball is now a shiny orange like color.

Movie Nut

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

Continuity mistake: As Burkhalter talks to Klink, he raises his hand for emphasis on a point. When the camera cuts to a wide shot, you see his arm down by his side, much too quick without a movement to relax the arm.

Movie Nut

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

Continuity mistake: When Hogan is looking around as Klink is showing the gate to Burkhalter. Hogan's hat is up on his head in the usual position. After the camera cuts to Klink, then back to Hogan, the bill of his hat is down shading his eyes.

Show generally

Visible crew/equipment: Many times that there is a close up on Klink, there is a reflection of the studio lighting.

Movie Nut

Hold That Tiger - S1-E2

Other mistake: After Shultz herds the prisoners into the barracks, Hogan opens the door and motions to Newkirk in the tank to get going. Problem is, there are no side viewports for Newkirk to see Hogan, and it looks like he motions to the camera. Also, Shultz is at the wrong end of the building to see the tank go into the end of the barracks.

Movie Nut

Hold That Tiger - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When in Hogan's quarters, they're planning to steal a Tiger Tank from the Germans. When Hogan rolls up the map, the holder it's on magically slides back into the wall. Any other time, he has to push it back.

Movie Nut

The Informer - S1-E1

Other mistake: Klink has on his monocle, as usual. If you look closely, the monocle is a single lens, with no frame. From Episode 2 onward, the monocle has a frame and a gallery. Also, Klink wears it at an angle, not unlike the Penguin in the original Batman series, who also wore a monocle without a frame.

A Klink, a Bomb and a Short Fuse - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: When Burkhalter is standing with Klink after he first arrives, Burkhalter's arms are by his side. When the camera cuts to a close-up, Burkhalter's arms are crossed behind his back, much too quickly than is possible.

Movie Nut

Anchors Aweigh, Men of Stalag 13 - S1-E16

Factual error: When Shultz is standing at the top of the ramp with a crate marked "hors d'oeuvres", talking with Carter and Lebeau, if you look to the right of Shultz's head (camera's left) you can see the Desilu Studios water tower.

Movie Nut

The Gold Rush - S1-E18

Factual error: When the men are lined up to take the strongboxes of gold to switch with bricks, each man in line easily hefts and tosses them to the next man. Gold bricks weigh over 27.5 pounds (12.4kg) apiece. If there 10 bricks per box (going by the size of the boxes), then that comes to 275 pounds per box, plus the weight of the box, which these guys are tossing around without a problem.

Movie Nut

The Scientist - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: When explaining the "experiment" Lebeau has going, the multi-chambered tube is on the left (from the camera's POV) and the long tube with the coil is on the right. As the men up to leave after Carter comes in, the tubes are reversed.

Movie Nut

The Assassin - S1-E29

Revealing mistake: During the attack with crossbow, look closely at the arrow in the door. You hear the sound of the arrow hitting the door, then see the (now skewered) hat shaking on the arrow. If viewed closely, you see a black thread pulling on the arrow. Also, the arrow is almost straight before the break, then it is down at an angle when Shultz is called in.

Movie Nut

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In the first episode, when seen from the inside, the door to the outside opens from the left. In the rest of the series the door opens from the right.
