Hogan's Heroes (1965)

Trivia: When the show was translated to German, the producers feared that some of the more patriotic lines of Klink would be too nationalist for the bruised German sensibilities. As a result, whenever Klink starts talking patriotic drivel in the original, in the German he starts rhyming nonsense rhymes or talks about his housekeeper and (secret) affair "Frau Kalinke" which does not even exist in the original.

The Kommandant Dies at Dawn - S5-E6

Trivia: This is not really a plot hole but more of a plot device: The episode revolves around using the unsuspecting Klink as a courier by hiding secret information in his belt. This episode however is the only time in the series Klink wears a belt on his coat. In all other episodes, he doesn't wear one.

Trivia: In the show, Klink is depicted as thoroughly unmusical and an atrocious violinist. In real life, Werner Klemperer was a proficient violinist and also a piano player. After the show was canceled, he worked as a classical musician.
