Heil Klink - S2-E22

Other mistake: When the camera pans left following Brauner's car, you can see palm trees in the background. The area the Stalag is supposed to be in wouldn't have palm trees.

Heil Klink - S2-E22

Continuity mistake: In the beginning, Carter and Newkirk are wiring in the explosives. As they run the spool of wire, first it unrolls clockwise, then counter clockwise between shots.

Heil Klink - S2-E22

Continuity mistake: After the phone call leading Klink to believe Hitler is coming by, he stands and goes to Hogan. As he stands over Hogan, he is gesturing with his left hand. When the camera angle changes, he's using his right hand.

Heil Klink - S2-E22

Continuity mistake: As Brauner, dressed as Shultz, gets into the staff car, he has no glasses on, as Shultz does not routinely wear them. After the shot cuts to Shultz and back to Brauner, and as the car pulls away, you see Brauner with horn rimmed glasses suddenly on.

Trivia: A sinister aspect of an otherwise lightheated comedy, but the fact is that Hogan and his men are war criminals. They engage in combat activities behind enemy lines when not in uniform, and worse, while wearing enemy uniforms. The Germans tried that during the Battle of the Bulge and those arrested were shot.

Answer: Nimrod's actual identity was never revealed in the series. It was only known that he was a British intelligence agent. Nimrod was not Colonel Klink. Hogan had only implied it was him as a ruse to get Klink returned as camp commandant, not wanting him replaced by someone more competent who would impede the Heroes war activities. (As another contributor previously posted, the term "nimrod" is slang for a nerdy, doofus type of person, though it's unclear why that was his code name).
