Storyline

Colonel Hogan leads a ragtag band of POW's caught behind German lines in this popular television comedy. The bumbling Germans give Hogan and his crew plenty of opportunities to sabotage their war efforts. Colonel Klink is more concerned with having everything run smoothly and avoiding any trouble with his superiors (especially anything that might result in his being reassigned and sent to the front) than with being tough on Hogan and his fellow prisoners.

Trivia

Ivan Dixon ('Kinch') left the series at the end of the fifth season (the only regular cast member to do so), stating that he was fed up with the posturings of Bob Crane, Werner Klemperer and Richard Dawson. He was replaced by Kenneth Washington for the final 24 episodes. Also, there was no mention of what happened to Kinch following Dixon's departure. See more »

Goofs

In many episodes something is dropped to the heroes by parachute. In almost every case when "something" leaves the plane it is obvious that it is a person since a pair of legs is clearly visible, yet usually when it comes down it is a box or some other container. See more »

User Reviews

Excellent Comedy! Highly Recommended!
3 October 1999 | by (Western Australia) – See all my reviews

Hogan's Heroes is one of the greatest comedies ever made. It's been over thirty years since it was first aired, and it is till hilarious today. The story is about Colonel Hogan (Bob Crane) and his Allied Prisoners (Robert Clary, Richard Dawson, Ivan Dixon, Larry Hovis, and Kenneth Washington) prisoned in Stalag 13. Colonel Klink (Werner Klemperer) and Sgt Shultz (John Banner) is running the camp, with the occasional visit from General Burkhalter (Leon Askin) and Major Hochstetter (Howard Caine), they are unaware that Hogan and his men have tunnels everywhere, with radios, and much more. Some clever one liners, and gags make this comedy worth watching. It is a bit crude to spoof a POW Camp, and the Germans, but once you watch Hogan's Heroes, you'll forget all that, and laugh yourself silly. Overall, 11/10.
