Hogan's Heroes

The Scientist - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: When explaining the "experiment" Lebeau has going, the multi-chambered tube is on the left (from the camera's POV) and the long tube with the coil is on the right. As the men up to leave after Carter comes in, the tubes are reversed.

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.

Suggested correction: Although Schultz doesn't have the grenades and his rifle with him in Klink's office, he may have stopped in the outer office and left the grenades and his rifle before entering Klink's office.


The Gold Rush - S1-E18

Continuity mistake: After the POWs cut the stairs outside Col. Klink's office, Sgt. Schultz walks down them. There is a guard standing to his right. After a switch to show the POWs, when the camera goes back to the stairs, Col. Klink walks out and falls when the stairs collapse. The guard is missing without making any motion to move before. When everybody rushes to Col.Klink, the guard runs in from the left also.

Bad Day in Berlin - S4-E11

Continuity mistake: When a German Major is in Col Hogan's quarters he is wearing black leather gloves. He raises his hand to remove his hat (with gloves). Next scene he is lowering his hat with bare hands. (00:02:10)


Kommandant of the Year - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: At least twice while the characters are under the large tarp around the rocket, there are at least three control panels visible. After the rocket fires and they show the general walking toward the people, behind him is the rocket trailer with only the tarp on it and no control panels.

Will the Blue Baron Strike Again? - S4-E12

Continuity mistake: At the airfield, Carter and Newkirk go to move, Carter steps left, and falls into the water. Newkirk takes a step, and leaps into the water, losing his hat, and trying to make it look like Carter pulled him, but you can see him looking to the way he falls. When the camera angle changes, Carter is splashing about, and Newkirk walks up to him from the left without having gotten out from where he fell. And his hat is on, despite losing it from jumping in.

Answer: It's a slang term for an isolated jail cell. In wartime, POWs who attempted to escape or otherwise thwart their captors might be punished with solitary confinement, often in a cramped, poorly ventilated, windowless space.
