10 revealing mistakes in season 6 - chronological order

Kommandant Schultz - S6-E7

Revealing mistake: As the scene opens, the camera starts on a shot of the guard tower's roof. As it pans left and down into the yard, over the hill on the left side of the shot you can see a modern crane structure and the corner of a building in the distance.

Movie Nut

The Gypsy - S6-E13

Revealing mistake: When the guys are by the half-track keeping Shultz busy, if you look just above and to the left of Shultz's head, you see some tall fencing at the top of the hill in the distance. From the set up, if appears to be a baseball field outside of the studio property.

Movie Nut

The Gypsy - S6-E13

Revealing mistake: When the men are in the yard during their exercise period playing football, there is a wide shot of the yard. The half-track is to the left of the screen with Shultz next to it. If you look above the barracks, the Desilu water tower and a large metal building, possibly a studio building, can be seen.

Movie Nut

That's No Lady, That's My Spy - S6-E17

Revealing mistake: When the men are in ranks for roll call, it's snowing heavily. Given the pitch of the barracks' roofs, there shouldn't be any snow sticking. Therefore, if looked at closely, it can be seen that the "snow" on the roofs is painted in place.

Movie Nut

To Russia Without Love - S6-E18

Revealing mistake: As the motorcycle and the side car split apart and drive around independently, you can see that the side car has been given two extra wheels, and some other stuff underneath as well that's not present on regular Wehrmacht BMW sidecars - probably a remote control of sorts. Also, the motorcycle Schultz rides has training wheels mounted in the shot where the side car comes off.

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).
