A Klink, a Bomb and a Short Fuse - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: Newkirk comes out of Klink's office with a code book, and passes it to Le Beau, who immediately holds it up and opens it. In the close up, Carter's hands bring up a book with a camera in it, and Le Beau brings the book out from his back and opens it again.

The Swing Shift - S2-E21

Factual error: In this episode, the HofBrau (which should correctly be written "Hofbräu") is displaying a big red neon sign above its door. From 1939 on, air raid regulations throughout Germany strictly prohibited any unnecessary display of light at night. Any light visible from more than 500m away was considered a breach of air raid regulations.

The Great Brinksmeyer Robbery - S2-E18

Factual error: In the restaurant in Hammelburg, where Schultz discovers Hogan and Newkirk, there's an advertisement for "Brauerei der Jager, Stadt Wien." (Wien = Vienna) Vienna and Hammelburg are more than 500km apart, and if Hammelburg were near Düsseldorf, where the series puts it, it would be more like 700km. That's a bit far away for a brewery to advertise in the pre-globalisation era.

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 Rise and Fall of Sergeant Schultz - S2-E6

Factual error: General Kamler awards Schultz what he calls "The Iron Cross Fourth Grade." There never was a version of the Iron cross called that. The Iron cross came in two ranks, called 2nd class ("zweiter Klasse") and 1st class ("erster Klasse"). The ranks higher than that were called the Knight's Cross ("Ritterkreuz des Eisernen Kreuzes") and were never pinned to the chest but worn around the neck.

Everyone Has a Brother-in-Law - S2-E23

Factual error: Schulz repeatedly calls Klink's adjutant "Kapitän." In the German armed forces the rank Kapitän only exists in the Navy, the German equivalent for the American rank of Captain (which is obviously meant here) is Hauptmann or Stabshauptmann.

Killer Klink - S2-E24

Continuity mistake: When Klink is talking to Schultz, his monocle is in before he bends down, missing when he's looking at Schultz, and back when he straightens up.

Killer Klink - S2-E24

Continuity mistake: As Schultz is going to get checked out, Hogan and the boys stop him, and Hogan feels Schultz's neck. Schultz's arms are by his sides, then after the angle change, they're by his hips. Also, there's two men walking behind the group that weren't there a second before.

The Most Escape-Proof Camp I've Ever Escaped From - S2-E26

Continuity mistake: In the beginning, Carter's hair has been buzz cut. A few minutes later, it's back to regular length.

The Swing Shift - S2-E21

Audio problem: After Schultz discovers the boys in the cannon plant, Hogan lifts a cannon up and taps the metal inside. If you watch closely, he only taps three times, but there are four tap sounds.

Movie Nut

Heil Klink - S2-E22

Continuity mistake: In the beginning, Carter and Newkirk are wiring in the explosives. As they run the spool of wire, first it unrolls clockwise, then counter clockwise between shots.

Movie Nut

The Rise and Fall of Sergeant Schultz - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: After Klink and Schultz chat, Klink offers him a cigar. When holding the box open, Klink's hands shift positions a couple of times.

Movie Nut

Killer Klink - S2-E24

Continuity mistake: When Klink is talking with the doctor, he sits while reading the report. One moment, he's holding the folder, the next, his hands are folded without having dropped the folder.

Movie Nut

Everyone Has a Brother-in-Law - S2-E23

Other mistake: When the boys are listening on the coffee pot, the red light to indicate power is not lit.

Movie Nut

The Tower - S2-E27

Continuity mistake: During the party in Klink's quarters, Kinch snaps some compromising pictures of Burkhalter. In the kissing pose, Burkhalter's eyes are almost shut. In the picture, his eyes are wide open, and looking at the camera.

Movie Nut

Information Please - S2-E15

Other mistake: When the boys are listening to Klink's office, the lid is on the speaker instead of being off.
