Hogan's Heroes

Hogan's Hofbrau - S1-E13

Other mistake: After talking to the officers in the Höfbräu, the scene shifts to a closed business with Hogan talking to the waitress. As it shifts, the cameraman accidentally shakes the camera.

Movie Nut

The Flight of the Valkyrie - S1-E5

Other mistake: As Crittendon pops through the wall, it is easily seen that the wall is Styrofoam, or other similar easily moldable material.

I Look Better in Basic Black - S1-E28

Other mistake: When Hogan asked the girls if they wanted to try to escape to England, the one in "basic black" said that anything is better than being booked in a German prison camp for three years. How did she know when the war would be over?

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

Other mistake: When Klink is trying to demonstrate the automated gates to Burkhalter, Kinch makes the gates close, knocking Klink into Burkhalter. Before Klink tells Schultz to open the gates, they are already in motion.

Go Light on the Heavy Water - S1-E9

Other mistake: After the smoke bomb goes off in Klink's office, there is a shot from the outside where the boys get a blanket to catch Klink. If you look at the window of the office behind them, you can see the smoke coming out in an up and down pattern, suggesting the smoke to be coming from a rig controlled by an out-of-sight crew member.

The Gold Rush - S1-E18

Other mistake: After the truck is stopped, Newkirk tosses a dart at the tyre in order to flatten it. Since the tyre hit was the rear tire, there should have been the track from the front tire, but wasn't. Also, a puny, hand-tossed dart couldn't have penetrated the thick construction of a heavy-duty truck tire, let alone flatten it in twenty seconds.

Movie Nut

The Gold Rush - S1-E18

Other mistake: When stopping the truck and Schultz, the area directly behind Carter and LeBeau can be seen to be a matte painting. The reason is because where they are is completely covered in snow, but the open area is very little, and there is a huge snowdrift piled up at the wall.

Movie Nut

Oil for the Lamps of Hogan - S1-E14

Other mistake: Anytime Hogan steals one of Klink's cigars from the back of the humidor, he takes the hinge pin out from the left of the box (camera's right). This time, he takes out the pin, got the cigar, and put the pin back in from just what looked like just left (camera's right) of center.

Movie Nut

The Informer - S1-E1

Other mistake: In this episode, the German spy Hogan conducts around the Underground tunnels sees things (i.e., steam room, weapon manufacturing line, barber shop, etc.) that are never seen in the series again.

Suggested correction: It is never made quite clear whether those were really supposed to be a thing or just part of an extremely elaborate plot to throw off the spy. Admittedly, if they were supposed to be part of the plot, the question how Hogan's men managed to set up such a complicated system in the time available would be a mistake in its own right.

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

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

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.

Trivia

When Klink is begging Hogan to trade places with him for fear of assassination, he says to him something like."I want to live til 80...all my family has lived til 80." Werner Klemperer, who played Klink, passed away in 2000 aged 80.
