This is the Intro to the very first episode of Hogan’s Heroes
Video Rating: four / five
@switcherxx john banner (schultz) was also jewish.
Greatest show ever!
I watched every episode of this program when I was kid, most of them many times. I’ve almost finished reading the autobiography of Rudolph Hoess, Kommandant KL Auschwitz, I have it open in another tab right now. It’s quite different than Hogans Hero’s. I also seen a web page once describing the actual LuftStalag XIII, it was different also. Robert Clary that played LeBeau in the series is on the “List of Famous Prisoners” of Buchenwald.
@Mr76Yearsago That makes sense, I wouldn’t be suprised if director Billy Wilder wasn’t a bit P.O. at Crosby as well, being that he took the whole concept for this series right down to Sgt Schultz as a character straight from
Stalag 17, especially if Wilder didn’t get any acknowledgement for it.
did you know Werner (Klink) is actually Jewish?
Who brained Bob Crane?
Crane would rather make a porno!!!
klemperer was, among other things, an opera singer…hogaaaan!!
@Mr76Yearsago Sometimes you have to play with fire to achieve great things. HH was a chance for people from the war to sit back and laugh at the Germans as they were portrayed. And I have to admit that Klemperer and Banner (not to mention a few others) did make the enemy look a bit silly. It was a time when people needed to start laughing again.
I’ll say this “Hulk Hogan Sure has Alot of Heroes” to call this Hogan’s Heroes !!
Simply the best series ever
RIP Bob Crane, Werner Klemperer, John Banner, Ivan Dixon and Larry Hovis.
Bing Crosby was “PLAYING with FIRE” when this show debuted (in Black & White) on Friday, September 17,1965. Despite so many of the actors on the show having actually suffered in some or large part at the hands of the Nazis , many Americans that night still had the numbers of the concentration camps tatooed on their arms. In fact, William Holder was angered with Crosby
for directly saterizing his role in “Stalag 17″
My dad was a WWII vet. I remember how he would laugh while watching Hogan’s Heroes.
It’s a bright spot in my life.
The pilot was filmed in BW. Sgt Carter was added afterwards
Where the hell is carter
pretty much…the americans were adaptable, the germans were arrogant, short-sighted and shot themselves in the foot with a nutball ideology….sounds like hogan and klink/schultz/hochstetter to me…
Pero que bien lo pasaban estos hijos de puta en la Stalag 12…
los alemanes eran unos imbéciles… buena cama… buen ambiente…
Sin combatir, con alimento, sin soportar brujas…
una sola consulta…
¿Quién se culiaba (fucked) a quién…
who´s fucked who´s…..
Dad LOVED this show!
This always struck me as more of a “guy” show, appealing much more to men than women. This may explain why (as far as I can remember) it was never part of the CBS daytime lineup. Contrast that with Gomer Pyle or M*A*S*H, which were afternoon staples for years.
For those of you post-Oprah, the networks, especially CBS, used to regularly air reruns of their prime time sitcoms, even cancelled shows, as part of their Monday-Friday daytime schedules.
The good old days of after-school TV.
