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.

The various secret code names that Colonel Hogan & his outfit used were fairy tale names of "Papa Bear", "Goldilocks", and "Little Red Riding Hood". Colonel Hogan's codename was "Goldilocks" in the series debut, contacting an underwater submarine in Hogan's Heroes: The Informer

The Germans usually address each other by the U.S. equivalent of their ranks. Sergeant Schultz's rank is "Oberfeldwebel". Colonel Klink is "Oberst". Captain Gruber is "Hauptmann".
