Goofs

When Captain Sears meets Hogan he tells him he has the plans to a fictitious Operation Anvil. Apparently unknown to the show's writers, there actually was an Operation Anvil, the planned Allied invasion of southern France. When the invasion was delayed until the following year, the name of the operation was changed to Dragoon. See more »

Maj. Wolfgang Hochstetter: What did you tell him?
Sgt. Hans Georg Schultz: I said, Yes. Kommandant Klink's orders.
Col. Wilhelm Klink: You fool! I warned you not to listen to me unless I tell you to.

You can just hand-over invasion plans.
1 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

The Allies send a man into camp with a mission of giving a plan for invasion to the Germans. The plans are fake but the Allies want the German to think they are secret plans and prepare for the invasion that is not coming. But you just can't hand over invasion plans. Hogan wants the German to think they got the plans from an undercover investigation.

Meanwhile, Klink has been setting up a situation with a local Baroness where she will pretend to have love interest in Hogan and perhaps they can get some information about a plan escape from the prison camp. Of course Hogan knows that Klink is involved and thinks of a way to let Klink believe he has fallen on allies secret plans. And with the Gestapo getting involved, the fake plans fall right into the hands of Major Hochstetter.

We get to again leave the fence of the prison camp as this mainly takes place at the estate of the baroness. Klink and Schultz are at the best when they really believe they have Hogan on the ropes. Also a funny scene involves Schultz, in civilian clothes, trying to remember a particular line that he promised not to forget. Add the fact that Hogan is lipped-locked most of the episode, you get a very entertaining show for a prisoner of war type sitcom.
