The Battle of Stalag 13 - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: Newkirk and Le Beau are getting the girl into the tunnel via the doghouse, while Hogan has Schultz distracted. Look over Schultz's left shoulder. The doghouse is in its correct position, as you can see the roof. When Schultz turns around, Le Beau and the girl are pulling the doghouse down, where it was down about one second earlier.

Continuity mistake: At the end, as the staff car leaves, the guard has the gate open. You see it's a single gate, suggesting the fence is a single, whereas in other episodes, you see two sets of wire. The gates are double, with a bar on the top to open both gates (inside and outside) at once.

Continuity mistake: As Hogan leaves Klink to go to his barracks, there is a distinct lighting difference on the porch where Klink is. The area between the supports of the porch roof is lighter in color than to Klink's left, also the shadows of the trusses are at a different slant than the area to the right of the screen. And there are extra shadows of the light and the support to Klink's left.
