Storyline

Colonel Hogan leads a ragtag band of POW's caught behind German lines in this popular television comedy. The bumbling Germans give Hogan and his crew plenty of opportunities to sabotage their war efforts. Colonel Klink is more concerned with having everything run smoothly and avoiding any trouble with his superiors (especially anything that might result in his being reassigned and sent to the front) than with being tough on Hogan and his fellow prisoners.

Alternate Versions

A cropped, high-definition version of the series, with a 1.78 : 1 aspect ratio, is currently showing on the Universal HD cable channel. (All programs are shown in a widescreen format on Universal HD.) At the time "Hogan's Heroes" was originally shown, there was no such thing as widescreen TV, and all television shows were presented in a 1.33:1 "Academy ratio" format. "Hogan's Heroes" was filmed in this aspect ratio, not in the current HD 16:9 television ratio so popular today. See more »

TV Guide Was Wrong
4 March 2003 | by SargebriSee all my reviews

I can't see how TV Guide could say that this was one of the all-time worst shows on television. This show was pretty much Mission: Impossible with a laugh track. The crazy schemes that Hogan and his men would think up to thrawt the Nazi war machine were what made this show great. Also, Werner Klemperer will always be loved for his portrayal of the most bumbling officer in television history. But the thing that really made it special was that it was one of the first series to treat an African-American character as an equal to the white characters. Ivan Dixon, who would later go on to become a great director, would often prove to be the smartest member of the cast and perhaps was the most level headed as well. TV Guide needs too look at this show again.
