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?

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.

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.

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.

Monkey Business - S3-E29

Factual error: In several episodes, Hogan's men communicate by radio with a British submarine, and the dialog hints that the sub is submerged at the time. During the WWII era, submarines could not communicate by radio without surfacing first. In most episodes one might argue that the sub could be running shallow with a mast up, which would perhaps be within the technical possibilities of the era, but in this episode, the sub is talking to Hogan's men while under attack by a destroyer. This pretty much rules out running at periscope depth, because ramming was regularly-used tactic for killing subs that were in the process of diving or surfacing. To avoid confusion: Nowadays, subs can communicate while running several hundred feet deep by using VLF and ELF. However, these are definitely not capable of transmitting voice, but are text-only.

What Time Does the Balloon Go Up? - S3-E24

Plot hole: Hogan has the men fly kites to get wind data and build a hot air balloon for a man to escape in. In reality, kites and hot air balloons are pretty much mutually exclusive - if there's enough wind to fly kites, one can't launch a hot air balloon, and vice versa.

The Ultimate Weapon - S3-E28

Factual error: Towards the end of the episode, Burkhalter gets a call from a General Seidenbaum. Anybody with such a "Jewish" name would have been weeded out of the officer corps by the Nazis. In fact, anyone of that name would have had great trouble even getting his Ariernachweis (proof or aryan ancestry), and without carrying a copy with him he could not have opened a charge account at the local bakery. Most people with such names (those who managed to pass the Nazi board of racial review) had them changed to more "German" ones like Müller or Schmidt to escape the constant bullying. A little bit of background on "jewish" names: At some time during the medieval period, Jews in the German Reich who traditionally didn't use last names were forced to have them. Many selected names like Gruenbaum, Cornfield, etc. Which over time were perceived as "typical Jewish" names, even though many bearers weren't even of Jewish faith any more.

Drums Along the Dusseldorf - S3-E30

Factual error: All through this episode, characters keep referring to the river the bridge *du jour* spans as "The Düsseldorf" or "Düsseldorf river." The city of Düsseldorf is situated on the river Rhine - there is no "Düsseldorf river." It's a well known fact that the producers were hardly geography whizzes, but not knowing the Rhine is bad even by their standards.

Duel of Honor - S3-E22

Hogan, Go Home - S3-E19

Continuity mistake: In Hogan's quarters, as he and Critendon are talking, his arms are by his sides, and suddenly crossed.

One in Every Crowd - S3-E10

Two Nazis for the Price of One - S3-E17

LeBeau and the Little Old Lady - S3-E25

Continuity mistake: When Newkirk and Carter are playing Gin, Newkirk puts a card on his forehead so Carter can't get it. When he puts it on his head, it's about a quarter inch below his hairline. In the close up, the card is now at the hairline. In the wide shot, the card is again about a quarter inch lower.

What Time Does the Balloon Go Up? - S3-E24

Continuity mistake: When the British spy is trying to get to the camp, the area around him seems fairly lit, as at dusk, after the sun just set. When he glances toward the gates, the sky is black, suggesting night (the shot of the gate is stock footage). When the shot goes back to the spy, it's dusk again.

Hot Money - S3-E9

Other mistake: When the head counterfeiter comes in, there is a sign on the barracks behind him that says "BARRACK 3." Two problems with this. First, Hogan and company are housed in Barrack 3. Second, there is not a Barrack building between Hogan's building and Klink's office building.

Monkey Business - S3-E29

Factual error: In this episode, the Royal Navy submarine that acts as a radio relay for Hogan's men is hunted by a destroyer. Like in most such Hollywood scenes, depth charges are seen exploding right next to the submarine, which just shrugs the blasts off. In reality, any depth charge that went off closer than 100 meters was instantly deadly to a submerged sub.

Duel of Honor - S3-E22

Factual error: Erica says she has a plane to take Klink and her to Argentina. The only transatlantic airplane in Germany at that time was the FW-200 Condor, whose military value would have made it hard to requisition even for an SS Gruppenführer (which would be the real rank a "General" would hold in the SS, different mistake), let alone for his wife. Plus, even the FW-200 could not have made it even to the Brazilian coast without a refueling stop somewhere along the African west coast, which would have been a problem, because Germany had no possessions there. Klink, being a Luftwaffe (Air Force) officer, should have at least been suspicious of that plan, even if he didn't know all the details off the top of his head.
