Hogan's Heroes

Colonel Klink's Secret Weapon - S2-E28

Continuity mistake: During the inspector general's visit, Le Beau and Newark fall out with switched hats (i.e. Newark is wearing Le Beau's red hat and vice versa). In the next shot when in formation, they are wearing their own hats. (00:21:00 - 00:22:00)

The Swing Shift - S2-E21

Continuity mistake: When the Hof Brau is shown, the door is white and opens outwards, and no shrubbery. When Le Beau comes in, the door is completely different, opens inwards, and has a trellis and shrubbery by it.

Killer Klink - S2-E24

Continuity mistake: As Schultz is going to get checked out, Hogan and the boys stop him, and Hogan feels Schultz's neck. Schultz's arms are by his sides, then after the angle change, they're by his hips. Also, there's two men walking behind the group that weren't there a second before.

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.

Trivia: During WW2 Robert Clary, who played Louis LeBeau, had been imprisoned at Drancy internment camp in France, and at Buchenwald Nazi concentration camp where he was tattooed with the number "A5714." He was the youngest of 14 children. Twelve members of his immediate family were sent to Auschwitz, and perished.

Question: Many times Hogan and company manage to actually escape Stalag 13, especially at night. If they can escape so easily, then why doesn't everybody in the whole Stalag do it and head to an American Embassy?

Answer: The core POWs regularly escaped the prison camp but they made it their mission to conduct espionage and commit sabotage in the surrounding German territory. They also collaborated with different underground resistance groups and used a network of secret tunnels to help prisoners from other POW camps to escape, who then relayed vital information back to the Allied forces. Hogan and his men maintained the illusion that Stalag 13 had never had any prisoners escape in order to avoid their covert operations being shut down. Being that the prison camp is set in Germany during WWII, there were no American embassies.

Hogan has mentioned to different characters that they are actually stationed at Stalag 13 to help allied soldiers and prisoners from other Stalags to escape Germany.
