Movie Nut

Show generally

Factual error: The rank badges on the SS Uniforms often do not match the character's spoken rank. For example, Maj. Hochsteter the regular Gestapo officer displays the rank of a SS Colonel (Standartenf├╝hrer). His correct title would be Sturmbannf├╝hrer.

The Kamikazes Are Coming - S6-E20

Revealing mistake: As the rocket blasts out of the recreation hall, the guide wires for the model are visible.

Show generally

Factual error: The first episode of Hogan's Heroes (Season 1) begins with a view of Stalag 13 and a title: "Germany, 1942." That said, Colonel Hogan indicates in several episodes that he has worked in the Pentagon although construction of the Pentagon was actually completed in 1943.

The Kamikazes Are Coming - S6-E20

Other mistake: As Marya comes out of camp office, the seams between the sections of the studio flooring are visible at the bottom of the shot.

Klink for the Defense - S6-E19

Visible crew/equipment: As Newkirk and Hogan enter the office, the shadow of the boom mike plays on the wall.

Movie Nut

That's No Lady, That's My Spy - S6-E17

Other mistake: The Kommandant's building and the barracks appear to be only twenty to twenty-five feet apart, showing that this scene of Roll Call is in the studio. Otherwise, the outdoor shots are at the studio back lot.

Movie Nut

The Dropouts - S6-E14

Revealing mistake: In the close ups, Professor Bauer's spectacles do not have lenses.

Movie Nut

It's Dynamite - S6-E10

Revealing mistake: As the truck passes Carter and Newkirk, it's easy to tell they're hiding behind tarp-covered boxes rather than the greenery or rocks around them.

Movie Nut

Kommandant Schultz - S6-E7

Other mistake: As Schultz talks to Burkhalter, it sounds like he says Captain.

Movie Nut

Kommandant Schultz - S6-E7

Visible crew/equipment: As Schultz calls for attention, the studio lighting is reflected in his monocle.

Movie Nut

Klink's Masterpiece - S6-E3

Factual error: As the staff car comes up the street, there are a number of neon signs lit up, as well as store fronts. This is wrong as during the night in wartime Europe, such lighting would be dark to avoid night bombing.

Movie Nut

Klink's Escape - S5-E26

Other mistake: As Hogan and Kinchloe sit on the bunk to keep the trap door from opening, the secret switch to activate it is visible.

Movie Nut

Standing Room Only - S5-E21

Continuity mistake: The whole operation is supposed to be at night, but when the original seven approach the gate to surrender, it's late afternoon, and very light.

Movie Nut

Never Play Cards with Strangers - S4-E7

Other mistake: As Carter brings the German truck to a rough stop, in the closeup, you can see that although Carter and Newkirk lurch in the seats, the truck was already motionless.

Operation Hannibal - S4-E17

Factual error: The cover of the plan for Unternehmen Hannibal is marked "SEHR GEHEIM." That phrasing does not exist in German. The correct term would be "streng geheim".

Doc Premium member

The Empty Parachute - S5-E11

Other mistake: As the boys are unloading the truck, one of the cases is WEIN (wine) , and marked with a 'Z' in the corner. In Season 4 Episode 22 "The Purchasing Plan", the boxes marked "Z" were boxes containing nitro glycerin for the underground.

Movie Nut

The Witness - S4-E23

Revealing mistake: As Schultz comes in the barracks door, there is a sliver of the studio background visible by the door jamb above his head.

Movie Nut

The Meister Spy - S6-E16

Continuity mistake: Klink's name is still on his office door in one scene but suddenly changes to Privat with no one touching it. (00:18:40 - 00:19:15)
