Hogan's Heroes

The 43rd, a Moving Story - S1-E23

Character mistake: When Klink explains the route of the trucks carrying the red cross packages to Kühn, he for once uses a map actually showing Germany. Unfortunately, the places he points to start near Luxemburg and track all across Germany. The spot he places Hammelburg at would be near Poznan in Poland.

Request Permission to Escape - S1-E32

Character mistake: When ordering Schultz to finish cleaning his car, Klink salutes Schultz, his returning the salute with the garden hose in his hand leads to Klink being soaked. A salute is, except in rare circumstances, always initiated by the lower-ranking individual and returned by his superior, not the other way round. This rule is broken especially by Klink in several other places as well.

Reservations Are Required - S1-E15

Character mistake: In this episode, Hogan suggests a helicopter as means for escape from Stalag 13. As a matter of fact, the allies had no helicopters operational before April 1944. The famous R-4 made its first flight only in January 1942. So unless Hogan planned to steal one of the Luftwaffe's 20 FW Drache (a maximum of ten or so existing at any given time) or a whole bunch of the single-seat Flettner Kolibri (24 total built) he was out of luck.

Anchors Aweigh, Men of Stalag 13 - S1-E16

Character mistake: Klink claims that the North Sea is about sixty miles from Stalag 13, in reality however the town of Hammelburg and thus the nearby camp are about three-hundred miles from the North Sea.
