How to Win Friends and Influence Nazis - S3-E7

Factual error: Burkhalter pulls some papers out of his bags marked "Top Secret." Why would German papers be marked in English, so the prisoners know what not to look at?

Two Nazis for the Price of One - S3-E17

Visible crew/equipment: A string is seen attached to Colonel Klink's cap that is used to yank off the cap after Colonel Mannheim fires his pistol at Klink.

Nights in Shining Armor - S3-E8

Factual error: When the prisoners are in the workshop to "fix" the plumbing, sergeant Shultz is armed with a krag Jorgensen rifle. German soldiers were armed with the k98 mauser, not the krag.

Steve Kozak

Axis Annie - S3-E23

Continuity mistake: As Newkirk is talking to Axis Annie, his arms are crossed. They are uncrossed a second later without moving.

Movie Nut

LeBeau and the Little Old Lady - S3-E25

Audio problem: After Hogan and company get into the car to go to town to get Lebeau, Klink is walking around to get in the passenger side, Schultz takes off, leaving Klink standing alone. After Klink calls out, you hear the screeching of tires sliding on pavement. Trouble is, the camp doesn't have any pavement.

Hot Money - S3-E9

Plot hole: The prisoners fake a fire with some smoke bombs to have an excuse to rush into the print shop and smash up the print plates. Afterwards they even receive thanks and a reward for their valiant efforts. In reality, the guards would notice immediately that nothing in that room is even singed, but everything important has been smashed by fire axes.

Everybody Loves a Snowman - S3-E14

Continuity mistake: Carter and Newkirk have just taken the escapees down the tree trunk to the tunnels. When they go to open it, they clear off the snow to open it. When the shot goes to a German soldier that was chasing them, the phony stump is suddenly covered over again. It would still have been visible, having just been exposed.

Movie Nut

D-Day at Stalag 13 - S3-E3

Factual error: The motorcycle courier coming in wears sunglasses that are definitely newer than 1942. Sunglasses with domed, wrap-around lenses were not invented in the 1940s.

Is There a Doctor in the House? - S3-E18

Continuity mistake: Hogan pulls a container with a red cross out of the drop box and opens it. It is labeled "penicillin" inside and contains among others several vials of clear liquid. Back in the camp, Hogan gives a box with a red cross on top to Kinchloe, saying "here's the penicillin." It is a completely different box.

Axis Annie - S3-E23

Factual error: After Carter realises Hogan got the envelope off so fast, Newkirk says "Speedy Gonzales." 'Hogan's Heroes' was supposed to take place from 1942 to the end of the war. Speedy Gonzales first appeared in "Cat Tails for Two" in 1953.

How to Win Friends and Influence Nazis - S3-E7

Visible crew/equipment: When Hogan gets up in the hotel room they're all in, the shadow of the boom mike plays on the wall he heads toward.

Movie Nut

Drums Along the Dusseldorf - S3-E30

Other mistake: The fire spread from the back of the canopy to the front too quickly to be real. Therefore, it had to be soaked with an accelerator.

Movie Nut

A Russian Is Coming - S3-E12

Factual error: On the map in Klink's office, the nearest town's name is Hamilburg. This a misspelling, as the real name is Hammelburg.

Movie Nut

Is General Hammerschlag Burning? - S3-E11

Continuity mistake: As Hogan and Kinch walk into the club, Hogan is holding the mop up. A second later, it's on the floor, with his hand on top.

Movie Nut

Hot Money - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: As Stoffel sets off the smoke bombs, the first one lands by a set of silver cans by a crate. The second one lands in almost the same spot, but the first charge is gone.

Movie Nut

Funny Thing Happened on the Way to London - S3-E5

Other mistake: When Lieutenant Bauman starts speaking German, his last two words "especial mission" is said in a decidedly French accent. The correct German phrase would be "Sonderauftrag." Non-German terms like "Mission" were generally avoided in the Wehrmacht for ideological reasons.

Movie Nut

Some of Their Planes Are Missing - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: Though six planes were supposed to be destroyed, only two were visible or bombed. At the fade out, the two planes blowing up were a reversed, re-used shot.

Movie Nut

Some of Their Planes Are Missing - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: After getting out of the tunnel, Hogan, Carter, and Le Beau are in a truck travelling to the meeting. Hogan in in the right seat, Carter on the left. But as the pull up to the meeting, they have switched sides, Hogan on the left and Carter on the right.

Movie Nut

Some of Their Planes Are Missing - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: In the tunnel, Le Beau picks up some darts and tosses one with green feathers at the target. When the camera looks at the target (a picture of Hitler) a blue winged dart hits the board.

Movie Nut

Some of Their Planes Are Missing - S3-E2

Other mistake: While Carter starts shining boots, the disturbed stage flooring can be seen in front of the opposite building; the joint between the panels is markedly raised.
