The sign outside of Hogan's barrack is legible in this episode, it reads: "VERBOTEN. 1. Strict orders have been given to the German troops around Brussels to shoot any civilian cyclist. 2. People who, after the fifteenth of December, are still in possession of carrier pigeons, as well as all other persons, who by signals or any other means, cause annoyance to the German military interests, will be judged by courtmartial. BRUSSELS, DECEMBER 14, 1944. The Chief of Military Police. H. HEINRICHS, Captain" See more »


During the various radio conversations, the submarine commander and/or British officer specifically states "Stalag 13". This would not have been done due to concern of exposing Hogan's operation. See more »


Col. Wilhelm Klink: [the men are planting flowers] I was not aware that you were such a nature lover.
Col. Robert E. Hogan: Mm-hmm, we think it'll, uh it'll go a lot easier for you, sir - you should be prepared.
Col. Wilhelm Klink: Prepared for what?
Col. Robert E. Hogan: For the liberation. When the Allies march in the front gate, it'll go a lot easier for you if you're standing there with a bouquet of pansies.

Should have passed on this script
24 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

At times it is difficult for writers to come up with enough scripts for the entire season. And in this episode it is quite obvious that the writers are grabbing at any subject tossed about. This episode has a chimpanzee, that has escaped from the local zoo, coming into camp. Hogan's gang will think of a way to use the ape for the Allied effort.

There really is little about this episode that is interesting. A monkey arrives in camp and the trainers make the animal perform some basic tricks, that has been done thousand of times before, all for the supposed entertainment of the viewer. There were a few funny lines but no real story in this production. I guess, by the end of the season, any thought can be made into an episode. This proves it.
