Hogan's Heroes

The Gold Rush - S1-E18

Continuity mistake: Hogan and company use red painted gold bricks to replace the wooden stairs that they sabotaged. The steps after this episode should have been brick, but they went back to being wooden.

Reservations Are Required - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: Hogan dumps a bucket of water on Barnes and Davis each, to make it look like they were the ones who hid in the tanker. They get big wet patches on their uniforms from it, but aren't completely wet through and through - which is to be expected, after all it's just a small bucket of water each. After the next cut however, they are completely soaked like they went swimming.

The Safecracker Suite - S1-E27

Continuity mistake: As G√ľnther leaves the room, Klink touches his forehead and begins to sit down (or his knees are buckling, not relevant). After the next cut, he sinks down into a chair in a closeup. That same chair was behind Hogan before the cut.

Hogan's Hofbrau - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: LeBeau and Newkirk are on a building roof and the Nazi flag is blowing in the wind with great force. In the next shot a guard tower is shown with a Nazi flag that's hanging straight down and not blowing at all. (00:01:00)

Snag.1

The Scientist - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: When Newkirk calls "Heil Hitler", everyone in the lobby salutes. A second later, in the closeup of Hogan and Newkirk, everyone's arms are suddenly back by their sides, much too quickly to be real.

Movie Nut

Kommandant of the Year - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: The missile sitting on the trailer is thin and yellow, the missile actually seen flying is a fat, pointy, silver Atlas missile - which is an American intercontinental missile by the way, not a German tactical missile.

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).
