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

German broadcasts of the show differ from the original. For example, because Nazi symbolism had been outlawed in Germany, any time the German officers gave the Hitler salute and shouted, "Heil Hitler!", the German version dubbed in another, more bizarre line such as, "This is how high the cornflowers grow." Also, anytime the show alluded to actual bombing and killing, the dialog there was modified as well. For instance, when the Americans destroyed a munitions factory, the German version made it a toilet paper factory. And when Sgt. Schulz reported the Allies having bombed Hamburg, it was revised to the Royal Air Force dropping planeloads of candy as a "propaganda maneuver." See more »

Those Nazis
26 September 2005 | by MSC13See all my reviews

My grandfather was a survivor of Auschwitz and several other concentration camps. Hogan's Heroes was one of his favorite shows, because it made the Nazis look like buffoons. So to those who complain that Hogan's Heroes is insensitive, I say that there is always room for a little humor.

This remains one of my favorite shows. The acting is great, and it's clear that the actors are having fun with what are admittedly silly story lines.

This is a classic show. I wish we saw more of HH on reruns, but I will be going out to get the DVDs.
