Hogan's Heroes was a hit from the beginning of its televised run, from the fall of 1965 through the spring of 1971. This boxed set of uncut videos collects six of the best episodes of the venerable Bing Crosby Productions series on CBS television: the pilot (in black and white), three more episodes (in color) from the first season, and one color episode each from the second and third seasons. These shows, with good video transfers and no commercial interruptions, make for some charming, nostalgic, laugh-track-filled family viewing.

All of the denizens of Stalag 13 are present and accounted for: the smirking Colonel Robert Hogan (Bob Crane), commanding officer of the POWs; his German counterpart, the ineffectual, easily flattered (and distracted) Colonel Wilhelm Klink (Werner Klemperer, son of the famous conductor); the bumbling, easily bribed Sergeant of the Guard Hans "I see nussink!" Schultz (John Banner); and Hogan's multinational, multi-ethnic group of heroes: Sergeant Ivan Kinchloe (Ivan Dixon), American radio expert; Sergeant Andrew Carter (Larry Hovis), a dimwitted American nevertheless good with munitions; Corporal Peter Newkirk (Richard Dawson), a British pickpocket and vaudeville performer; and Corporal Louis LeBeau (Robert Clary), a French cook and tailor. (In the pilot, we even get a glimpse of a short-lived Russian character, Sam, whose tailoring duties were taken over by LeBeau.) Filling the remaining American, German, and British roles are a number of character actors, such as Leon Askin, Howard Caine, Bernard Fox, and Sigrid Valdis (erstwhile wife of Crane, and one of Klink's two voluptuous secretaries).

All the set props familiar to baby boomers--the tunnel entrance under the cot, the coffee-pot tap into Klink's office, the hidden periscopes and prisoner-friendly dogs--decorate a consistent narrative from episode to episode: the heroes must pull off an operation that places them in danger, return in time for roll call, and allow Hogan one final, wisecracking conference with Klink. High points of these six shows include the abortive replacement of Hogan by pompous Colonel Crittendon (Fox) and Hovis's hilarious impersonation of Hitler. Although as thoroughly American as a Mae West, Hogan's Heroes embodies the countercultural spirit of its times, and wittily humanizes friends and foes alike. --Robert Burns Neveldine

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant videos of Hogans Heroes January 21, 2000
By A Customer
These uncut episodes are absolutely brilliant. The episodes included in this three part volume are: 'The Informer' (pilot episode); 'Kommandant of the year'; 'The Great Impersonation'; 'It takes a thief - sometimes'; 'Hogan Go Home'; and 'Will the real Adolf please stand up?' A 'must' for the dedicated Hogan's Heroes fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST SHOW EVER May 29, 2000
Hogan's Heroes is one of the best shows ever produced, this set of tapes is definitely a must for any hogan's heroes fan. With these tapes you get a glimpse of the greatest moments for each of the major characters in the show. If you have never seen the show this is a good way to begin your addiction, a warning however... there is no "patch" for THIS addiction.

5.0 out of 5 stars Untouchable March 23, 2004
By Roscoe
It is criminal that the DVDs for Hogan's Heroes have not been produced...perhaps more criminal than the untimely slaughter of Crane himself. There is a plethora of assorted crap and garbage, passing for entertainment, that has been lasered onto DVD. However, the all-time gem remains unsung in the obscurity bin. Brutal.

5.0 out of 5 stars comical view of ww2 June 15, 1999
By A Customer
bob crane (hogan) and his collection of clever misfits run rings around the supposed master race in these 6 episodes from the long running tv series. the cast of characters includes: klink, the self impressed commandant; schultz, the guard who knows nothing; newkirk, the british con artist; lebeau, the french chef; carter, the american naif and kinchloe, the radio/techno guy.
these episodes are a good representation of the series (1965-1971). one of the most popular series in its time.
