Hogan's Heroes

To Russia Without Love - S6-E18

New this month Revealing mistake: As the motorcycle and the side car split apart and drive around independently, you can see that the side car has been given two extra wheels, and some other stuff underneath as well that's not present on regular Wehrmacht BMW sidecars - probably a remote control of sorts. Also, the motorcycle Schultz rides has training wheels mounted in the shot where the side car comes off.

Anchors Aweigh, Men of Stalag 13 - S1-E16

Revealing mistake: When the "Boat" is loaded on a "trailer", you can see that it has very little ground clearance. The wheels of the "trailer" actually are hidden behind the boards like on a parade wagon. The boat has no keel and no hull below its freeboard. Besides the question of how the boat got onto the trailer if it is practically built around it, there remains the question of how it is supposed to stay afloat without a keel or a bottom.

The Return of Major Bonacelli - S4-E25

Revealing mistake: When Hogan, Carter and Le Beau are talking to Schultz, you can see it is an overcast day. After Hochstetter comes in and the camera cuts to them talking about Bonacelli, it goes back to Hogan. You can now see that they are on a sound stage. The reasons are that the guard isn't moving in the tower, the boys are well lit, and as Hogan and Le Beau go into the barracks, you can see differences in the painting of the sky on the back drop.

The Gasoline War - S5-E4

Revealing mistake: During the main part of the plot, the guys are putting dynamite on each truck in the convoy as they fuel up at Stalag 13. It is supposed to be dark, (hence the reason the boys wear black) but there are shadows as if it were day. It's impossible for the driver in the following truck and the guard in the tower to miss seeing the boys as they go back and forth to plant charges.

The Gold Rush - S1-E18

Revealing mistake: When Le Beau holds up the gold painted brick and the "gold" brick, the ends reveal that they appear to be pieces of lumber. The ends seem to have grains consistent with lumber.

Movies Are Your Best Escape - S1-E8

Revealing mistake: When Schultz is talking to Hogan and Le Beau, the guard outside walks past. As he does, you can see three shadows from him revealing the studio lighting, rather than him really being outside.

The Battle of Stalag 13 - S2-E5

Revealing mistake: When the scene transitions from Klink and Hogan to a night shot outside of the barracks, you can see palm trees above the roof line. Not normal for the area that's supposed to be represented.

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

Information Please - S2-E15

Revealing mistake: When Schultz checks the barbed wire to see if it is fixed now, he noticeably wiggles the vertical wire, but only barely touches the horizontal one - because it is rigged to come apart, and will again if he handles it too roughly.

The Klink Commandos - S5-E3

Revealing mistake: The first shot of the train the view is normal. Then after Lebeau starts in reverse you can see the smoke trail going in the wrong direction. The final shot shows the train moving in reverse, but notice the smoke trail is going to the rear of the train instead of the front as it should be, since it's moving in reverse.

The Pizza Parlor - S1-E22

Revealing mistake: LeBeau hands Schultz the pan straight from the hot plate, but Schultz puts at least three fingers around it while eating without any apparent issues. Note that LeBeau earlier said the Crepe Suzette were "not quite ready yet" - or in other words, still cooking.

One in Every Crowd - S3-E10

Revealing mistake: After the cell door blows, you can see the fuse of the stick of "dynamite" Newkirk placed still burning on the ground. Since the dynamite would blow when the fuse is burnt up, that literally can't happen.

Tanks for the Memory - S2-E9

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

Revealing mistake: When the men are in ranks for roll call, it's snowing heavily. Given the pitch of the barracks' roofs, there shouldn't be any snow sticking. Therefore, if looked at closely, it can be seen that the "snow" on the roofs is painted in place.

Kommandant Schultz - S6-E7

Revealing mistake: As the scene opens, the camera starts on a shot of the guard tower's roof. As it pans left and down into the yard, over the hill on the left side of the shot you can see a modern crane structure and the corner of a building in the distance.

Funny Thing Happened on the Way to London - S3-E5

Psychic Kommandant - S1-E25

Revealing mistake: When the High Command men are watching the "noiseless engine" plane, the camera cuts to a shot of the four of them in the car. To the right (camera's left) of the man in the right side, back seat, you can see LA's Desilu water tower.

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.

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.

Klink's Old Flame - S4-E20

Revealing mistake: When Schultz is on the way out after giving the guys the news about the inspections and roll calls, you can plainly see that the background behind him is a matte painting. This is easy to spot because the building in the distance is lighter in color, and there are ripples in the fabric used.

I Look Better in Basic Black - S1-E28

The Gypsy - S6-E13

Revealing mistake: When the guys are by the half-track keeping Shultz busy, if you look just above and to the left of Shultz's head, you see some tall fencing at the top of the hill in the distance. From the set up, if appears to be a baseball field outside of the studio property.

The Gypsy - S6-E13

Revealing mistake: When the men are in the yard during their exercise period playing football, there is a wide shot of the yard. The half-track is to the left of the screen with Shultz next to it.

How to Cook a German Goose by Radar - S1-E24

Revealing mistake: Toward the end of the episode, a guard is watching Helga posing in a one piece bikini for Lebeau. As you look past him, you see only blue screen, no view of the surrounding property. Same when Hogan climbs up, you don't see the tops of buildings; you can tell it's on a soundstage.

How to Cook a German Goose by Radar - S1-E24

Revealing mistake: After Hogan and the boys decide to get rid of Tillman, they "accidentally" set fire to the trash can on the Kommandant's porch. To that end they load up a bunch of trash that's been soaked in gas. Then Hogan tosses a lit match in it. The fire starts at the bottom, but all of gas soaked stuff, and the match, were at the top.

I Look Better in Basic Black - S1-E28

How to Cook a German Goose by Radar - S1-E24

Revealing mistake: When the boys set the trash can on fire in front of Klink's office, there is a problem with the trash. While the rest of the waste paper burns down there is one piece hanging over the top edge that doesn't burn, even being in the midst of the flames on that side.

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.
