Product Description

The complete fifth season of the TV series Hogan's Heroes.

Amazon.com

The fifth season of Hogan's Heroes aired in 1969 with a divisive war tearing the nation apart, and decades later there is still comfort to be taken from Col. Hogan (Bob Crane) and company coming up with daring, ingenious, and outrageous plots to sabotage the German war effort from their base of operations in Stalag 13. Ineffectual commandant Col. Klink (Werner Klemperer, a two-time Emmy-winner, and a nominee for this season) may have Hogan's number as "a scheming troublemaker," but he is as ever clueless about Hogan's elaborate operations. To the outrage of visiting German brass, Hogan still has the run of the camp and still makes with the impudent wisecracks about "the little sign painter" and "Himmler with the laughing face." Getting information to the Underground and blowing up German installations remains job 1, but Hogan and his men--hustler Newkirk (Richard Dawson), LeBeau (Robert Clary), explosives expert Carter (Larry Hovis), and radio operator Kinch (Ivan Dixon)--must also ensure that the bumbling Klink is not transferred ("At Last-Schultz Knows Something," a great episode for co-star John Banner) or executed ("The Kommandant Dies at Dawn"), lest a more savvy or ruthless officer replace him. Hogan's Heroes caught considerable flack from critics for its lighthearted portrayal of life in a P.O.W. camp, but between the punchlines, effective moments of suspense and intrigue remind viewers that Hogan's work is no laughing matter. In "Unfair Exchange," the men kidnap General Burkhalter's sister, Gertrude "the Bride of Frankenstein" Linkmeyer (the great Kathleen Freeman) to exchange her for the Allied Agent who allowed herself to be captured to save Hogan and his men from discovery by the Gestapo. In its penultimate season, Hogan's Heroes is still a great escape, although, as Gertrude tells him, "Colonel Hogan, you've been here too long." --Donald Liebenson

"Hogan's Heroes" is the Best! I've got mine and re-watched them all several times already!

For Hogan's fans everywhere I want to recommend a movie I ran into recently that I hadn't seen in ages. It is a wonderful, but forgotten cross between Kelly's Heroes & Hogan's Heroes set in 1943 Italy...complete with a bank heist!...and General Burkhalter!!!

It's called "What Did You Do in the War, Daddy?" and Hogans' fans and "Kelly's Heroes" fans alike should give this a try.

I have all five season's of Hogan's Heroes and I feel that this season had several of the best shows. Most TV series get worse after the first few seasons as they struggle for new material for story lines. The writers on Hogan's Heroes always managed to keep the war going strong and I never tire of the show.

This show is among the all time greatest comedies. It was and is a marvelous program suitable for all ages. I have always loved this series and watched for it to come on, which was, unfortunately, all too infrequently. Now, I can watch it as and when I wish on DVD.

The story line of a prisoner-of-war camp in Germany in which American "prisoners" are running an "underground railroad" right under the noses of the Germans could easily have gone down a different road and not have been the great comedy it became. It would only have taken a change in casting, using American actors for all the parts. The casting department must have seen this, because many of the actors actually came from the countries they represented. John Banner, for instance, was actually a German soldier in WWII. Richard Dawson is really British. Many of the French underground were really French, etc. It all folds together to create one of the funniest shows ever produced, and it doesn't matter which episode you see. They are all of a piece, but never the same. Truly a marvelous piece of work which I a proud to own and am looking forward to the release of the 6th (and sadly, the last) season.

... it keeps us out of trouble," as Cpl. Newkirk (one of the POW's) says. Add in a bumbling Kommandant, a Sergeant who loves to eat strudle, and some German officers who actually WANT to win the war and you've got Hogan's Heroes. Bob Crane stars as American Colonel and mastermind Robert Hogan, Werner Klemperor as 'the fabulous' Col. Klink, and John Banner as Sgt. Shultz. Hogan's band of saboteurs includes: Robert Clary as the loveable little Frenchman LeBeau, Richard Dawson plays the English, safe-cracking Newkirk, Ivan Dixon is an American named Kinchloe who handles all the radio stuff, and finally Larry Hovis as Carter, demolishions expert if you trust him around explosives. I sure wouldn't!

My teenage son happened to find an episode of Hogan's Heroes one day on cable and thought it was great. I had all but forgotten this series from my childhood. I bought him a complete set and he was thrilled. These episodes are from a time before CGA and I think watching it gave all of us a deeper appreciation of the huge changes in technology. ...and we still laugh at the gags!

I have enjoyed HOGAN'S HEROES since it first came out on TV (back when) and I'm happy to have the DVD collection so that I can watch it whenever the 'urge' comes up to see it again.
Good quality picture (not HD), the sound is great and the episodes are complete from beginning to end.
It's been great to watch them all in order, from the beginning to the end.
I gave it FIVE STARS because of the quality and the HOGAN HEROES sitcom contents.
