Klink for the Defense - S6-E19

Continuity mistake: General Burkhalter is eating Klink's dinner. When finished he places a metal cover over the plate. In the next shot the cover is lying on the table and there is extra food on the plate.

Rockets or Romance - S6-E24

Plot hole: Hogan has his men play romantic music over the radio. Earlier they were afraid of the radio in the observation post being detected. Elsewhere in the series, they try to avoid sending too long to avoid being homed in on - which is correct. Now, if they were to play a whole record at once, wouldn't the homing devices pick up on the transmitter at the camp?

Easy Come, Easy Go - S6-E15

Factual error: Klink and Hogan sit behind each other in the P-51 they try to steal. The P-51 is a single-seat airplane, the only twin-seat P-51 are trainers. A trainer would not be at the flight line with the regular airplanes, and if a trainer would actually scramble with the others, it would at least arouse suspicion.

Kommandant Schultz - S6-E7

Continuity mistake: After Shultz has been discredited, Klink is taking away the "badges of rank". When Klink goes to crush the monocle Shultz was wearing, he has his monocle on. After the shot cuts to a closeup of Shultz's monocle being crushed, and widens out, you see Klink's monocle is suddenly gone. It remains missing until Klink goes to the hat rack. The shot cuts from Klink, to Hogan and Shultz, then back, and the famous monocle is suddenly back, both without Klink stopping to take it off, or put it back on.

Kommandant Schultz - S6-E7

Continuity mistake: Notice the jacket that Carter always wears. It always appears worn with age and use. This episode, it appears almost new.

Season 6 generally

Continuity mistake: The display behind Klink changes. Sometimes, a map of the area around The Stalag, sometimes a layout of the the Stalag. Also, the picture of Hitler with the microphone bug. Sometimes there, sometimes moved, or gone completely.

To Russia Without Love - S6-E18

Revealing mistake: As the motorcycle and the side car split apart and drive around independently, you can see that the side car has been given two extra wheels, and some other stuff underneath as well that's not present on regular Wehrmacht BMW sidecars - probably a remote control of sorts. Also, the motorcycle Schultz rides has training wheels mounted in the shot where the side car comes off.

Rockets or Romance - S6-E24

Factual error: Frankel suggests manipulating the missile's gyroscope, and Hogan suggests an electromagnet as means to do it, which is later implemented. Gyroscopes however are not affected by any magnetic force, which is what makes a gyroscopic compass superior to a magnetic one in many situations. To enhance that effect, gyroscopes are deliberately built out of materials with as little magnetic susceptibility as possible. A large electromagnet next to the missile could potentially cause all kinds of havoc with all kinds of parts of the missile guidance and control, but the gyroscope itself would not be among them.

The Big Broadcast - S6-E12

Factual error: Hogan calls the radio detection truck "radar" when he orders the SS guard to switch it off. From other episodes, we know that Hogan knows what radar is, and back then, the difference between radio homing equipment and radar was even clearer to people than it is today, because radio homing was an established technology, while radar was brand new, and most people were not even aware it existed.

The Big Broadcast - S6-E12

Factual error: Baker picks up a lot of static in his radio, then suddenly signs off and says "Sounds like the radio detection unit picked up our signal." Unlike radar, radio signal homing relies entirely on measuring the signals emitted by the transmitter that is tracked. It works by comparing the strength of the signal arriving at each component of an array of directional antennae. The process is completely passive and does not cause any alteration of the signal measurable at either receiver or transmitter at all, and certainly not any audible interference or humming.

The Big Record - S6-E9

Audio problem: When the quartet plays, Klink's bow strokes don't match the music. That is all the stranger since Werner Klemperer was a proficient violinist. Maybe his playing wasn't bad enough on the stage recording?

Revealing mistake: As the rocket blasts out of the recreation hall, the guide wires for the model are visible.

That's No Lady, That's My Spy - S6-E17

Other mistake: The Kommandant's building and the barracks appear to be only twenty to twenty-five feet apart, showing that this scene of Roll Call is in the studio. Otherwise, the outdoor shots are at the studio back lot.

The Dropouts - S6-E14

Revealing mistake: In the close ups, Professor Bauer's spectacles do not have lenses.

It's Dynamite - S6-E10

Revealing mistake: As the truck passes Carter and Newkirk, it's easy to tell they're hiding behind tarp-covered boxes rather than the greenery or rocks around them.

Kommandant Schultz - S6-E7

Kommandant Schultz - S6-E7

Visible crew/equipment: As Schultz calls for attention, the studio lighting is reflected in his monocle.

Klink's Masterpiece - S6-E3

Factual error: As the staff car comes up the street, there are a number of neon signs lit up, as well as store fronts. This is wrong as during the night in wartime Europe, such lighting would be dark to avoid night bombing.
