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

In the German dubbed version, very often the salute "Heil Hitler" was changed to "Heil Kräuter!" (literally translated: medicinal herb). - Also, when the show alluded to actual bombing and killing, the dialog was often modified as well. For instance, when the Americans destroyed a munitions factory, the German version made it a toilet paper factory. And when Sgt. Schulz reported the Allies having bombed Hamburg, it was revised to the Royal Air Force dropping candy as a "propaganda maneuver". See more »

Goofs

The center top ribbon on Colonel Hogan's dress uniform is the Air Force Distinguished Service Medal, an award that was created by the Air Force after World War II. See more »

Ridiculous but quite funny.
12 October 2000 | by (Akron, Ohio.) – See all my reviews

On paper this sounds like one of the stupidest shows you'll ever hear about, but in reality it's quite funny. The cast was well chosen and played their parts well. It's great to see a show that can take WW2 and turn it into a joke, although we all know it wasn't.
