See the source image

Hogan’s Heroes is a television sitcom set in a Nazi German
prisoner-of-war (POW) camp during World War II. It ran for
168 episodes (six seasons) from September 17, 1965, to
April 4, 1971, on the
CBS network, the longest broadcast
run for an American television series inspired by that war.

Bob Crane starred as Colonel Robert E. Hogan, coordinating
an international crew of
Allied prisoners running a special
operations
group from the camp. Werner Klemperer played
Colonel Wilhelm Klink, the gullible commandant of the camp,
and
John Banner played the blundering but lovable sergeant-
of-the-guard, Hans Schultz.
