Hogan's Heroes

Kommandant Schultz - S6-E7

Continuity mistake: After Shultz has been discredited, Klink is taking away the "badges of rank". When Klink goes to crush the monocle Shultz was wearing, he has his monocle on. After the shot cuts to a closeup of Shultz's monocle being crushed, and widens out, you see Klink's monocle is suddenly gone. It remains missing until Klink goes to the hat rack. The shot cuts from Klink, to Hogan and Shultz, then back, and the famous monocle is suddenly back, both without Klink stopping to take it off, or put it back on.

Season 6 generally

Continuity mistake: The display behind Klink changes. Sometimes, a map of the area around The Stalag, sometimes a layout of the the Stalag. Also, the picture of Hitler with the microphone bug. Sometimes there, sometimes moved, or gone completely.

Kommandant Schultz - S6-E7

Continuity mistake: As Schultz is addressing the formation after taking command, his swagger stick switches from his right hand to under his left arm after the camera angle changes. Also, a minute later, Carter goes from being beside Newkirk to being in front of him and back again in a few seconds.

Kommandant Schultz - S6-E7

Continuity mistake: After Burkhalter relieves Shultz of command, and Klink is reinstated, Klink sits behind the desk. On the blotter is a letter opener that Burkhalter was toying with, and a black covered notebook. After sitting, Klink reaches in his jacket pocket, pulls out the same notebook, and reads from it. The shot cuts to Shultz and back, and the book Klink read from is gone, (presumably back in the pocket) and the one on the desk is gone.

Easy Come, Easy Go - S6-E15

Continuity mistake: When Klink and Hogan are looking at the Mustangs, Hogan has just sipped his coffee and holding the mug at chest level, at the top button of his coat. When the shot changes, he's holding it waist high. Also, the flight line full of planes is a grainy black-and-white projection super imposed in the shot of the window.

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).
