The Gold Rush - S1-E18

Continuity mistake: After the POWs cut the stairs outside Col. Klink's office, Sgt. Schultz walks down them. There is a guard standing to his right. After a switch to show the POWs, when the camera goes back to the stairs, Col. Klink walks out and falls when the stairs collapse. The guard is missing without making any motion to move before. When everybody rushes to Col.Klink, the guard runs in from the left also.

Bad Day in Berlin - S4-E11

Continuity mistake: When a German Major is in Col Hogan's quarters he is wearing black leather gloves. He raises his hand to remove his hat (with gloves). Next scene he is lowering his hat with bare hands. (00:02:10)

Continuity mistake: Episode 3 of season 1, "Kommandant of the Year": At least twice while the characters are under the large tarp around the rocket, there are at least three control panels visible. After the rocket fires and they show the general walking toward the people, behind him is the rocket trailer with only the tarp on it and no control panels.

Hogan Goes Hollywood - S5-E1

Other mistake: In the movie, as the jeep comes up to Byron Buckles' plane, the jeep rolls through previous tracks from previous takes.

Operation Briefcase - S2-E4

Character mistake: As Stauffen parts company with Col. Hogan at the road checkpoint, he salutes Hogan. While that is understandable under the circumstances - after all Hogan just saved his life, it would also be highly suspicious. Both Schultz and Stauffen's adjutant were watching them, so it can't be said they did it surreptitiously either. After all, Stauffen is a German general whereas Hogan is an allied prisoner officer of inferior rank. For an officer of higher rank to initiate the salute is a demonstration of great respect and/or thanks, which, as far as anyone besides Stauffen and Hogan knew, was not warranted in this situation.

Operation Briefcase - S2-E4

Other mistake: When the General arrives at Camp 13 and is greeted by Klink, he notices Hogan and ask Klink who he is. Klink only says he's the Senior POW, the General sends his Aide to get Hogan. The Aide addresses Hogan by name, but Klink never said Hogan's name. (00:07:40)

Color the Luftwaffe Red - S4-E8

Factual error: The medal Newkirk steals from the German officer in the pub is a Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross with Oak Leaves and Swords. There were a total of 148 presentations, most of them 1943-45. By 1942 (where the series is apparently set), less than 25 had been presented. That Newkirk should actually stumble across a wearer by pure chance is highly unlikely, that the wearer should actually "never miss it" as Newkirk states, is plainly impossible. Being the fourth highest ranking military decoration of the Wehrmacht, it would have been missed almost immediately - if not by the wearer himself, then by his fellow officers. (00:22:35)

Bad Day in Berlin - S4-E11

Character mistake: After Le Beau is questioned, Schultz is told to take him back to his cell. Schultz calls "About face! Forward march!" The "about face" is wrong. The door that Le Beau goes out is on his right, therefore the command should have been "right face."

Movie Nut

Diamonds in the Rough - S2-E3

Character mistake: When Major Hagel is going down the list of his knowledge of Hogan's Heroes, he mentions that their code name is Goldilocks. Throughout the series, the code was also Mama Bear, but the most used code name was Papa Bear.

Revealing mistake: Every time they go to destroy a truck convoy, you can see that it is a miniature set with model trucks blown up, and it is a re-used shot every time. Same goes for the trains that get blown up.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Throughout the whole series, the guys access the tunnels through a trapdoor built into the bunk closest to what appears to be the east end of the barracks. What is interesting is the method used to make the trapdoor open and the bunk rise. sometimes, it's two taps, two slaps, or two pushes of a "key", a panel that's made to look like the side of the bunk.

The Purchasing Plan - S4-E22

Continuity mistake: Carter and Hogan are in Klink's outer office when Hogan takes a piece of paper off Carter and folds it into a square. Klink arrives and grabs the paper which has now unfolded to a rectangle. (00:09:10)

Klink vs. the Gonculator - S4-E2
