Continuity mistake: Klink was sitting in his chair as Hogan is guessing his age. Klink's hands are clasped in front of him, and a second later, his right hand is on his hip.

Hogan Gives a Birthday Party - S2-E1

Factual error: When the crew in the plane gets ready to drop the bombs on the refinery, Hogan (in the pilot seat) tells Carter (who is looking through the bomb sight) exactly when to push the button. In fact, the pilot of a WW2 bomber had no way of even knowing when exactly to release the bombs - it was the job of the bombardier, looking through his targeting optics, to know that. Carter at the bomb sight should be telling Hogan how exactly to steer to get the bombs onto the target.

The Top Secret Top Coat - S2-E29

Continuity mistake: When Hogan and company are getting ready to listen to the sock from "Aunt Alice" they plug the coffee pot up to their recorder. As they do so, the light that indicates power is lit up, but then Lebeau plugs in the power cord.

Praise the Fuhrer and Pass the Ammunition - S2-E19

Factual error: In the ammunition dump, a sign saying "Warnung Hoche Sprenggefahr" can be seen. That is not correct German. First, and foremost, it must be "hohe" and not "hoche", the latter form does not exist. Secondly, the word "Sprenggefahr", while not formally wrong, was never used in German. Depending on what the meaning of the sign is supposed to be, it must either be "Explosionsgefahr", if the overall danger of an explosion is meant, or if the property of the ammunition of being explosive is meant, it should be "Hochexplosiv." If the general presence of explosive material is being warned of, "Explosivstoffe" or "Hochexplosives Material" would be possible.

The General Swap - S2-E17

Continuity mistake: When the staff car is approaching the fallen tree it has white staff flags, but when it stops at the tree it has the red swastika Nazi party flags. (00:12:00)

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.

Movie Nut

Heil Klink - S2-E22

Other mistake: When the camera pans left following Brauner's car, you can see palm trees in the background. The area the Stalag is supposed to be in wouldn't have palm trees.

Tanks for the Memory - S2-E9

Plot hole: The boys take out the radio control unit from the mini tank. Le Beau is needed to get in and drive it to make it appear okay. After going between the buildings, they get him out, and start it on its way. Trouble is, no remote control and no driver, yet it turns and operates smoothly.

Movie Nut

Colonel Klink's Secret Weapon - S2-E28

Continuity mistake: During the inspector general's visit, Le Beau and Newark fall out with switched hats (i.e. Newark is wearing Le Beau's red hat and vice versa). In the next shot when in formation, they are wearing their own hats. (00:21:00 - 00:22:00)

The Great Brinksmeyer Robbery - S2-E18

Continuity mistake: As Kinch answers the question about the radio, he's in quarter profile to the locker with his shirt open. After the cut to a wider scene happens, he's turned toward the camera, and his shirt is half buttoned.

Movie Nut

Diamonds in the Rough - S2-E3

Visible crew/equipment: When Le Beau signals the plane, the camera crew is reflected in the flashlight.

Movie Nut

The Battle of Stalag 13 - S2-E5

Visible crew/equipment: As first Feldkamp, then von Kattenhorn, get in their respective staff cars, the camera crew and equipment is reflected on the doors and glass.

Movie Nut

Hogan and the Lady Doctor - S2-E20

Revealing mistake: As the truck pulls into the laboratory yard, the buildings of the city surrounding the studio backlot are seen.

The Swing Shift - S2-E21

Revealing mistake: As Burkhalter's car comes into the camp, it's easy to see that it's a re-use of stock footage.

The Swing Shift - S2-E21

Continuity mistake: When the Hof Brau is shown, the door is white and opens outwards, and no shrubbery. When Le Beau comes in, the door is completely different, opens inwards, and has a trellis and shrubbery by it.

Movie Nut

Hogan and the Lady Doctor - S2-E20

Other mistake: As Hogan and company listen to Klink's office, the lid is on the speaker, so they shouldn't have been heard or at all.

Movie Nut

Praise the Fuhrer and Pass the Ammunition - S2-E19

Continuity mistake: When Hogan and company pull up to the ammo dump, the guard is standing to the left of the "HOCHE SPRENGGEFAHR" (high explosives) sign. A second later he is standing in front of the other end of the sign.

Movie Nut

Praise the Fuhrer and Pass the Ammunition - S2-E19

Continuity mistake: As Newkirk leaves the stage to do his "hat trick", his sweater is clean. When doing the trick, there are stains on the sweater before he starts.

Movie Nut

Art for Hogan's Sake - S2-E16

Visible crew/equipment: After Hogan, Le Beau and Schultz get into the car, and as it starts to move, chairs, people and equipment are reflected on the glass.

Movie Nut

Klink's Rocket - S2-E14

Visible crew/equipment: As the General gets in his staff car and it leaves, the film crew and equipment are reflected on the sides.
