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

The car seen leaving the camp in the opening credits and from time to time during the series is a Mercedes model G4 Parade Car. The six-wheeled, three-axle vehicle had four wheel drive on the rear wheels (6 x 4) and was popular among the German Military elite. See more »

Goofs

Throughout the series, all vehicles have Army license plates (WH, i. e. "Wehrmacht/Heer"). The vehicles from Stalag 13 should have Air Force license plates (WL, i. e. "Wehrmacht/Luftwaffe"), as it technically is an Air Force unit. See more »

User Reviews

A very special series
7 June 2000 | by See all my reviews

"For security reasons I cannot tell you the exact location. The request was no names please, but somewhere in Germany an American officer is operating a sabotage and rescue unit from of all places, a POW camp. These men saved my life. For me they are among the unsung heroes of this war."

Bob Crane pacing in perfect step with a chimp -- an unforgettable image from an all-time TV classic.

I have seen more repetitions of Hogan's Heroes than I have seen cycles of any other TV series. Watching the entire series, viewers will see that most episodes were wacky and certainly unrealistic. Silly, zany comedy was the norm. However, other episodes were much more sober and more filled with tension and suspense (check out the "North Star" episode from one of the early seasons). Some episodes added twists upon twists upon twists. Most were story driven rather than simply character driven.

The cast was top notch and worked well together in front of the camera. Charisma and chemistry -- and mighty funny too! Check this series out.
