- Acceptable Targets: Nazis. The most acceptable targets of all.
- Alternative Character Interpretation:
- Is Schultz really the dim-witted Bavarian hick he appears to be, or is he Obfuscating Stupidity to cover his secret opposition against the Nazi system, while at the same time consciously helping Hogan's plans?
- The same can be wondered about Klink.
- Schultz once admitted to Klink that he was a member of the German Socialist party before the war, at the same time Klink admitted that he hated the whole Nazi system - particulary the SS. These probably helped them to turn a blind eye to some of Hogan's most blatant lies and plots.
- Its more believable when you learn Schultz in peacetime was CEO of one of the largest Toymakers in Germany.
- Germans Love David Hasselhoff: Interestingly, the series is quite popular in Germany (with Macekred/GagDub dialogue -- See No Swastikas below) under the name Ein Käfig voller Helden ("A Cageful of Heroes").)
- Hilarious in Hindsight: In Klink Vs. the Gonculator, a guy named Carter is trying to catch a rabbit. Former US president Jimmy Carter was attacked by a giant rabbit on a fishing trip in Real Life.
- Large Ham:
- Marya, Hogan Daaaaahling!
- Klink, if he's trying to be dramatic.
- Values Dissonance:
- Some of Hogan's more... aggressive actions towards women come off as creepy to modern eyes.
- While Kinchloe gets his chance at two women, both of them are black. He almost never vocally shares the other inmates' interest in beautiful white women. This might also be an aversion of Politically-Correct History, as it wouldn't be particularly smart for a black man to do so even among friends in that time period.
- It was politically correct (for want of a better term) for the 1960s.
- While the original never specified where in Germany the Germans came from, the aforementioned dub has Klink from Dresden and Schultz from Munich. Why? Because the Saxon and Bavarian accents are the ones other Germans find the funniest...
- Although when convinced that the war was over (by who else...?) in order to get some Underground agents released, Schultz reveals he's the owner/CEO of a Heidelberg Toy Company.
- Beside that there is an old rivality of Bavarians and the rest of German or as the Bavarians say it "Prussia", this is also used in the German dub. Schultz calls Klink "Saupreiß" in some occasions.
- In an early episode Klink says Dusseldorf is his hometown; in a much later one a Gestapo man reading his dossier says Klink was born and raised in Leipzig. They have the same continuity problem with Hogan's hometown, too.
