The Softer They Fall - S5-E18

Factual error: Burkhalter refers to Jesse Owens winning the gold medals in the Berlin Olympics, and that Hitler left the stadium every time Owens was to be presented a medal. Truth was, Hitler left the stadium when another black man won the day before, and didn't snub Owens at all. In fact, Hitler wasn't in attendance the days Owens won.

The Defector - S5-E10

Visible crew/equipment: As Hogan, Le Beau, Kinch, and Schultz talk at the car, the boom mike is reflected in the chrome and on the hood.

The Antique - S5-E12

Character mistake: Schultz states "In Hammelburg, they call me die Glitterzehe", which is a literal (but wrong) translation of the term "twinkle toes." That term does not exist in German, and even if it did, it would have to be GlitZerzehe, because the German word for twinkling is 'glitzern', the word 'glittern' does not exist.

The Gasoline War - S5-E4

Revealing mistake: During the main part of the plot, the guys are putting dynamite on each truck in the convoy as they fuel up at Stalag 13. It is supposed to be dark, (hence the reason the boys wear black) but there are shadows as if it were day. It's impossible for the driver in the following truck and the guard in the tower to miss seeing the boys as they go back and forth to plant charges.

The Merry Widow - S5-E24

Continuity mistake: As Schultz marches in with the Kraut platoon, he reports to Klink. As he goes to stand at attention and report, the new tunnel section he's over collapses, and he completely disappears into the hole. The camera goes to a close up on Klink, then back to the hole, and you see Schultz standing in the hole and it's only chest deep.

The Empty Parachute - S5-E11

Other mistake: As the boys are unloading the truck, one of the cases is WEIN (wine) , and marked with a 'Z' in the corner. In Season 4 Episode 22 "The Purchasing Plan", the boxes marked "Z" were boxes containing nitro glycerin for the underground.

Get Fit or Go Fight - S5-E16

Factual error: In the rec hall where Klink is weightlifting, there is an advertisement poster for the Grindelwald region on the wall, which is in Switzerland. The German propaganda poured a lot of money into promoting the Reich's own recreational regions through the "Kraft durch Freude" program. With the war going badly, they especially wouldn't want a "Look how beautiful Switzerland is" poster in plain view of their troops every day.

Crittendon's Commandos - S5-E25

Character mistake: To have an excuse not to start up the truck motor, Schultz claims his driver's license has expired. German driver's licenses don't expire.

One Army at a Time - S5-E20

The Gasoline War - S5-E4

Six Lessons from Madame LaGrange - S5-E22

Character mistake: The SS guard salutes Major Hochstetter with his palm out, in the British fashion. Firstly, German soldiers salute palm-down, secondly, by the Wehrmacht (and SS) military protocol, he should just click his heels and not salute at all when receiving an order.

Bombsight - S5-E7

Factual error: About 10 minutes into the show, Newkirk is using binoculars to watch Klink put the combination into his safe. He goes one direction for the first number, the opposite direction for the second number, then goes in the same direction for third number. Opposite for the fourth number. For the radial tumblers to set, it has to be alternating directions.

The Kommandant Dies at Dawn - S5-E6

00:09:50

Coleman Mannheim

The Klink Commandos - S5-E3

Revealing mistake: The first shot of the train the view is normal. Then after Lebeau starts in reverse you can see the smoke trail going in the wrong direction. The final shot shows the train moving in reverse, but notice the smoke trail is going to the rear of the train instead of the front as it should be, since it's moving in reverse.

00:15:05 - 00:22:25

Coleman Mannheim

The Gasoline War - S5-E4

Other mistake: As Schultz tries to find Flensheim on the wall map, what he's checking isn't a road map, but a city plan with a harbor on it.

Six Lessons from Madame LaGrange - S5-E22

Factual error: Hilda is writing with her left hand. At the time of the Third Reich, it was still the practice in Germany to force left-handed children to learn to write with their right hand.

The Sergeant's Analyst - S5-E23

Factual error: In this episode, the running gag is that Schultz keeps flattening Col. Hogan's pumpernickel loaves. In reality, pumpernickel is a very compact bread that contains virtually no air at all and is impossible to flatten in this way. The shape is also wrong: pumpernickel is almost always baked in rectangular baking pans. To avoid confusion: the original, German pumpernickel is quite different from what's sometimes referred to as pumpernickel in England and America.

Klink's Escape - S5-E26

Continuity mistake: When Klink is "taken hostage" in the barracks, he is in his tunic only. Later in the car he has his overcoat on. He was supposed to be kidnapped, he could hardly ask Hogan to let him slip into his office for his coat.

The Softer They Fall - S5-E18

Other mistake: Usually, the picture at the podium has the microphone "bug" for Hogan, and it's blatantly obvious, except to the Germans. This time, there is no bug, but an extra picture that the boys can take the eyes out of and listen in.

Add time

Fat Hermann, Go Home - S5-E17

Continuity mistake: When Schultz comes over to talk to the boys, they open the truck door that has a map on it in chalk. They erase it, and go to close the the door on the right side of the shot. When the camera angle changes, they're closing the truck door again.

The Klink Commandos - S5-E3

Plot hole: In his German uniform, Col. Hogan wears a number of decorations, among them the Iron Cross first and second class. When did he earn those if he has just been drafted for a suicide mission? After all he was not posing as a Wehrmacht soldier for a change but wore the uniform "officially".

The Softer They Fall - S5-E18

Continuity mistake: Klink comes out with the "insurance policies" in his hand. They are lying beside each other, with a little space between them, and tilted in one position in his hand. When the camera goes into a close up, they are touching, and in a different position.

Get Fit or Go Fight - S5-E16

Continuity mistake: When the woman is kissing Klink in town, she hands a note to the boy who puts the note inside the spare tire's hubcap. There was no tape to stick it anywhere, yet when LeBeau goes to get the note, it is stuck with tape to the center of the spare tire.

How's the Weather? - S5-E15

Audio problem: When Klink comes into the barracks, he puts the bottle of alcohol into his jacket to hide it. When he does, you hear a distinct clink (no pun intended) of glass on metal. None of the POWs wear anything that would cause this.

The Empty Parachute - S5-E11

Continuity mistake: Toward the end of the episode, Hogan turns Shultz around, grabs one of the grenades Shultz is carrying, and hands it off. The one grabbed was closest to Shultz's left side. A few moments later, Shultz turns his back briefly to the camera; there is now a space between the grenades, as if Hogan grabbed the middle one. After a brief dialog Shultz marches Hogan into Klink's office. Once there, you notice that there are now no grenades on Shultz's belt, and his rifle is gone, both without his stopping.

The Empty Parachute - S5-E11

Continuity mistake: In this episode, the picture next to the light switch wire is a group seated around a table. In "The Defector" (S5:Ep10) the picture was of Hitler making a speech, and the microphone he's speaking into hides the Heroes' bug.

How's the Weather? - S5-E15

Continuity mistake: Before Hogan lets Klink have the ball to hit, the camera does a close up on the volleyball. It can be seen to be a dull light brown color.
