Hogan and his men break the fourth wall by whistling the Hogan's Heroes March theme while cleaning up outside of Klink's office. They also whistle the theme in Hogan's Heroes: The Pizza Parlor (1966) and Hogan's Heroes: Klink's Escape (1970). See more »


A gold bar the size of the bricks used would weigh close to seventy pounds. A box full of such bricks couldn't be lifted by one average soldier, much less passed from man to man like a bucket brigade as shown. It would also be impossible for them to be lifted with tongs, hung from the belt or lifted by LeBeau. See more »

Those are some expensive steps
17 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

At the beginning of this episode the Stalag get a new prisoner named Lieutenant Edward H. Martin. He informs Hogan of a stolen gold shipment that has arrived at the local bank. So Hogan slips a false map into Martin's items and Klink thinks that he has found a map of an air-raid that is going to happen at the bank. Klink volunteers his camp to save the gold from the Allied attack.

When the gold comes inside the gate of the prison camp, Hogan goes to work. Klink's steps, to his office, have failed and they want to build Klink some new steps with brick. But these are not going to be regular brick as Hogan and his men will make a little switcheroo before building the brick steps.

Another good episode in the collection. There were some hard to believe scenes like when the guards are drugged and then all of the sudden awaken with just a shake- but that can be overlooked since this is a TV sitcom. Maybe not as enduring as others episode we have seen but overall still a nice watch.

NOTE- in the trivia section of this episode it is said that the show did not have a laugh track. The show that I watched definitely had a laugh track.
