Hogan's Heroes

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Throughout the whole series, the guys access the tunnels through a trapdoor built into the bunk closest to what appears to be the east end of the barracks. What is interesting is the method used to make the trapdoor open and the bunk rise. sometimes, it's two taps, two slaps, or two pushes of a "key", a panel that's made to look like the side of the bunk.

Movie Nut

Show generally

Continuity mistake: The scar on Burkhalter's right cheek changes location, relative to the mole on that cheek, in every episode. Possibly in every take.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: The breast eagle on Schultz's uniform is sewn on backwards after the first season, and his belt buckle also changes from a Luftwaffe buckle to a different one.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Throughout the whole series, there are references to the building that houses Hogan and company. Sometimes it's Building 2, sometime it's Building 3. Also, there are times that Hogan's building has a direct view of the Commandant's building, and times when there is a building between them.

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).
