|'Hut...two...Season Three! It's the third blitzkrieg of laughs as Hogan's Heroes: The Complete Third Season launches a full-blown frontal attack on your funny bone! Colonel Robert Hogan (Bob Crane) and his gang of merry saboteurs (Robert Clary, Richard Dawson, Ivan Dixon and Larry Hovis) have a whole new season of plots, plans and schemes ready to unleash on the German war machine at Stalag 13. And that means more headaches, frustrations and irritations for the POW camp's incompetent commandant, Colonel Wilhelm Klink (Werner Klemperer), and his bumbling sidekick, Sergeant Hans Schultz (John Banner). Enjoy top laughs from one of TV's top-rated comedy sitcoms with all 30 "Season Three" Hogan's Heroes episodes contained in this five-disc set!|
Editor's NoteDespite a historically and morally questionable premise, the 1960s sitcom HOGAN'S HEROES was wildly popular during its premiere run and continues to remain one of the most classic (not to mention utterly unique) comedy series in television history. Set in a Nazi prison camp during World War II, the series follows a group of Allied POWs--Englishman Peter Newkirk (a pre-FAMILY FEUD Richard Dawson), Frenchman Louis LeBeau (Robert Clary), and Americans Andrew Carter (Larry Hovis) and James Kinchloe (Ivan Dixon, one of the first African-American actors to get equal billing)--led by the irrepressible Colonel Robert Hogan (Bob Crane) in their hilarious attempts to sabotage the Nazi war effort. Though often mischaracterized as a tasteless gloss on the real-life horrors of Nazi Germany (the series was set in a prisoner-of-war camp, rather than concentration camp), HOGAN'S HEROES was intended as parody and certainly pulled no punches in its unflattering depiction of idiotic Nazi officers such as the pompous Colonel Klink (Werner Klemperer), bumbling Sergeant Schultz (John Banner), and irascible General Burkhalter (Leon Askin)--in fact, Klemperer, Banner, and Askin were all Jewish, and Clary was a Holocaust survivor. This collection presents every episode from the controversial series' third season.
