Praise the Fuhrer and Pass the Ammunition - S2-E19

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.

Movie Nut

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.

Movie Nut

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)

Chris Maher

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

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.

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

Movie Nut

Klink's Rocket - S2-E14

Audio problem: The top of the coffee pot is on the basket rather than open, but we can hear the conversation.

Movie Nut

Klink's Rocket - S2-E14

Continuity mistake: As the general comes into Klink's office, Carter pours another cup of coffee, and starts to put the pot down. A second later, he's putting it down again.

Movie Nut

Klink's Rocket - S2-E14

Continuity mistake: During Carter's second meal, the napkin in his shirt comes loose and starts to fall. A second later, it's firmly in place in his shirt.

Movie Nut

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.

Movie Nut

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.

Doc Premium member

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.

Doc Premium member

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.

Doc Premium member

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.

Tanngrisnir

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.

Movie Nut

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.

Movie Nut

Information Please - S2-E15

Continuity mistake: When Newkirk brings his hat loaded with candy, he hands it to Hogan with the badge on the top on Hogan's left. When the camera angle changes, the hat has been reversed.

Movie Nut

Tanks for the Memory - S2-E9

Audio problem: As the baby tank runs by the group in a wide shot, you see Hogan's mouth moving in a conversation, but the words don't match up.

Tanks for the Memory - S2-E9

Revealing mistake: As Hogan goes through the hole to the ladder, the "rock" he brushes against flexes for a second. Likewise, when Kinch climbs through, the "rock" under his hand flexes and mashes down as his weight is on it.

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

Visible crew/equipment: When Burkhalter gets out and goes toward the office, as the camera pans to follow, you can see the shadows of the film crew and equipment.

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

Continuity mistake: Klink comes out to demand his code book be returned. In the wide shot, Hogan has a book in his right hand. In the close up, when he points at Klink with his right hand, the book is gone, and back in the wide shot.

The Rise and Fall of Sergeant Schultz - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: General Kammler tells Klink to straighten his cap. After he does so, the camera cuts to Kammler, then back. Klink's cap is again at the familiar tilt.

Movie Nut

The Battle of Stalag 13 - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: Newkirk and Le Beau are getting the girl into the tunnel via the doghouse, while Hogan has Schultz distracted. Look over Schultz's left shoulder. The doghouse is in its correct position, as you can see the roof. When Schultz turns around, Le Beau and the girl are pulling the doghouse down, where it was down about one second earlier.

Movie Nut

The Great Brinksmeyer Robbery - S2-E18

Continuity mistake: When Hogan is trying to get the woman drunk, they take their first sip of brandy and put their glasses down. Hogan's is full, and he switches the full one for the empty one. He picks up the empty one with his right hand. When the camera cuts to a wide shot of the two of them, it's in his left hand.

Movie Nut

The Swing Shift - S2-E21

Continuity mistake: Burkhalter and Hans Spear are seated at the table in Klink's office and Burkhalter pours brandy for himself and Spear. After the camera goes through several quick cuts, you see the shot glasses empty without having been moved.

Movie Nut

Killer Klink - S2-E24

Continuity mistake: As Schultz comes in, Klink has his left hand on his forehead. As Schultz is talking, Klink starts to raise his head, his hand very close to his forehead. When the camera cuts to a close up, his hand is below chin level.

Heil Klink - S2-E22

Revealing mistake: After Browner gets out of the staff car and is going inside, as the camera pans to the left following him, you see the Desilu Studios water tower.

Movie Nut

Heil Klink - S2-E22

Continuity mistake: After the phone call leading Klink to believe Hitler is coming by, he stands and goes to Hogan. As he stands over Hogan, he is gesturing with his left hand. When the camera angle changes, he's using his right hand.

Movie Nut

Information Please - S2-E15

Revealing mistake: When the boys are working on the fence, when the camera is on Hogan, you can see a modern metal building in the distance.

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

Continuity mistake: The lapels of Schultz's jacket have yellow rectangles where the insignia of rank are. Normally, he has four eagles on them meaning senior Sergeant. In the close ups close to the end, the top piece is missing on the right lapel.

Movie Nut

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

Other mistake: After Burkhalter gives Klink the order to help disarm the bomb, the camera cuts to Hogan and Klink. Between them and over the barracks, you can see the Desilu water tower.

Movie Nut

Heil Klink - S2-E22

Continuity mistake: As Brauner, dressed as Shultz, gets into the staff car, he has no glasses on, as Shultz does not routinely wear them. After the shot cuts to Shultz and back to Brauner, and as the car pulls away, you see Brauner with horn rimmed glasses suddenly on.

Movie Nut

The Battle of Stalag 13 - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: At the end, as the staff car leaves, the guard has the gate open. You see it's a single gate, suggesting the fence is a single, whereas in other episodes, you see two sets of wire. The gates are double, with a bar on the top to open both gates (inside and outside) at once.

Movie Nut

The Schultz Brigade - S2-E2

Other mistake: Hogan is listening to Klink's office with the coffee pot, and the clear top is still on the basket that is the speaker, but you can hear Klink.

Movie Nut

Don't Forget to Write - S2-E13

Other mistake: When the recruiting officer is talking to Klink, Hogan and company listen in, as usual. The problem is the coffee pot. Any other time, they take off the top, take out the basket (which is the speaker) and plug in the power: this time, they forgot to remove the top to hear it, which would have muffled the sound. But the conversation was heard just the same.

Movie Nut

Praise the Fuhrer and Pass the Ammunition - S2-E19

Continuity mistake: When the German officer throws the dummy grenade, it lands about 15 or so feet from Hogan. In the next shot, Hogan takes only a step or two (about three or four feet) and picks it up.

Movie Nut

Praise the Fuhrer and Pass the Ammunition - S2-E19

Continuity mistake: As Klink tells Hogan of his suspicion, his arms are folded. A second later, his left fist is by his mouth.

Movie Nut

The Tower - S2-E27

Continuity mistake: When Kinch raises the binoculars to look at the tower, the neck strap is crossed in an "X" on his chest. When he puts them down, the strap is straightened.

The Battle of Stalag 13 - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: As Hogan leaves Klink to go to his barracks, there is a distinct lighting difference on the porch where Klink is. The area between the supports of the porch roof is lighter in color than to Klink's left, also the shadows of the trusses are at a different slant than the area to the right of the screen. And there are extra shadows of the light and the support to Klink's left.

Movie Nut

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

Continuity mistake: Hogan is reading the note from the underground on the clipboard that Newkirk brought in. When done reading, Hogan is holding the board at waist height. In the close up, it's suddenly chest height.

Movie Nut

Heil Klink - S2-E22

Continuity mistake: The light switch for Klink's office is usually located right next to the door, with the wires going up toward the ceiling. This time, the switch is missing.

Movie Nut

Tanks for the Memory - S2-E9

Factual error: In the very end, Klink comes up to the boys. As he stands beside Hogan, the Desilu Studios Water Tower is present behind them.

Movie Nut

Tanks for the Memory - S2-E9

Plot hole: When the tank runs into Burkhalter's car, it and the car are destroyed. The guard tower is outside the fence. After the collision, you see the debris is covered by the tower roof. How did the tower get that far inside the wire?

Movie Nut

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

Continuity mistake: When Burkhalter is standing with Klink after he first arrives, Burkhalter's arms are by his side. When the camera cuts to a close-up, Burkhalter's arms are crossed behind his back, much too quickly than is possible.

Movie Nut

Operation Briefcase - S2-E4

Character mistake: As Stauffen parts company with Col. Hogan at the road checkpoint, he salutes Hogan. While that is understandable under the circumstances - after all Hogan just saved his life, it would also be highly suspicious. Both Schultz and Stauffen's adjutant were watching them, so it can't be said they did it surreptitiously either. After all, Stauffen is a German general whereas Hogan is an allied prisoner officer of inferior rank. For an officer of higher rank to initiate the salute is a demonstration of great respect and/or thanks, which, as far as anyone besides Stauffen and Hogan knew, was not warranted in this situation.

Doc Premium member

Operation Briefcase - S2-E4

Other mistake: When the General arrives at Camp 13 and is greeted by Klink, he notices Hogan and ask Klink who he is. Klink only says he's the Senior POW, the General sends his Aide to get Hogan. The Aide addresses Hogan by name, but Klink never said Hogan's name. (00:07:40)

norbertdx

Diamonds in the Rough - S2-E3

Character mistake: When Major Hagel is going down the list of his knowledge of Hogan's Heroes, he mentions that their code name is Goldilocks. Throughout the series, the code was also Mama Bear, but the most used code name was Papa Bear.
