Did You Know?


As "Hogan's Heroes" (1967) was unceremoniously cancelled in 1971, this was the series' final episode. No official finale episode was shot or aired, so the fates of the main characters were never resolved. The real-life Stalag XIII-C was a prisoner-of-war camp located in Hammelburg, Bavaria, the same area as the fictional Luft-Stalag 13 of the series, but other than the name and location, the two bore no resemblance to each other. Stalag XIII-C was liberated by Combat Command B of the U.S. 14th Armored Division on 6 April 1945. Germany surrendered unconditionally to the Allies on 8 May 1945. See more »


Lily Frankel (Marilyn Mason) and Hogan do not seem to know each other even though they met and even had a brief affair in season five's episode "Six Lessons from Madame LaGrange" (1970). See more »


General der Infanterie Albert Burkhalter: I'm going to personally fire this rocket at England.
Col. Wilhelm Klink: General Burkhalter, may I have the honor please, sir?
General der Infanterie Albert Burkhalter: Of course, Klink.
[Klink fires the rocket which goes immediately off course]
General der Infanterie Albert Burkhalter: Klink! England is that way!
Col. Wilhelm Klink: I can't understand what went wrong General Burkhalter.
Col. Robert E. Hogan: What's over that way?
General der Infanterie Albert Burkhalter: My house, for one thing.
Col. Robert E. Hogan: [the rocket crashes in the distance and explodes] Well, General, I've always thought it was a lousy neighborhood anyway.

With this episode (which actually was not the last episode filmed since all shows were aired out of order) the series comes to a unceremonious end. And in this final show, the heroes are still doing their best to sabotage the Germans and hopefully shorten the war.

In this episode the Germans have three rocket launchers in the area of the Stalag. Two are being followed by the underground and one is still missing. But without delay the third launcher happens to arrive inside the gates of the prison camp making the location simple. The only problem is that Hogan cannot direct the Allied bombers inside the camp without killing most of the men, so Hogan is going to have to come up with a plan to destroy the one launcher that is located in the Stalag.

Hogan gets help from a beautiful underground woman named Lily Frankel. (Lily had also played in season 5 episode 'Six Lessons From Madame LeGrange' but no mention of her previous appearance seemed to be mentioned) Lily will help Hogan, from an unoccupied cabin, to help locate the two other launchers and direct the Allied bombing. But it will be difficult when the Germans have picked up Hogan's transmissions and are closing in on the location.

This episode ends exactly the same as all the other shows in the collection. Not even a hint that this could be the very last airing of the wonder series as it fades to black in the usual fashion. But after six years, which is a long tenure for a comedy sitcom, the series comes to an end. But we, as viewers, still have the 168 episodes to cherish the time in history.
