Did You Know?


Last show of the series. CBS chairman Fred Silverman had the show canceled, even though it was still popular in the Nielsen ratings, as part of what came to be known as The Rural Purge when he canceled all shows he felt only appealed to older audiences or to audiences that lived in rural areas. Advertisers preferred younger and more urban audiences as they were more likely to buy their products. 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 »


Col. Wilhelm Klink: One of the radio detector units has picked up a wireless sending coded messages.
General der Infanterie Albert Burkhalter: It must be the underground.
Col. Wilhelm Klink: That is exactly what I was going to say.
General der Infanterie Albert Burkhalter: They must be sending out the location of our rocket launchers.
Col. Wilhelm Klink: Exactly what I was going to say, sir.
General der Infanterie Albert Burkhalter: Order your men to search the area. If they see anybody suspicious, shoot them.
Col. Wilhelm Klink: That is exactly what I was going to say, General.
General der Infanterie Albert Burkhalter: Klink, stop agreeing with me. You are undermining my confidence.

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.
