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.

User Reviews

Funniest TV show ever
9 October 2000 | by See all my reviews

Hogan's Heroes is, without a doubt, the funniest television show ever made. The way it makes fun of Nazis is perfection. One of my all-time favorite episodes is the one where Hogan and his men had Klink and Burkhalter convinced that there was such a device called a Gonkulator. Or the one where they convinced Klink and Hochstetter that the war was over. That is just absolute brilliance. Sure, there's a lot of plot manipulation going on in the show, but who cares. It's hilarious.
