Was There An Intentional Typo Placed Into Every Episode (of Season 6) of TV’s “Hogan’s Heroes?”

In this closeup screenshot from a 5th season episode of "Hogan's Heroes," the unusual typo is clearly visible. For some reason, it was allowed to remain throughout the ENTIRE run of the show's final season.

Editor’s Note: Not every story requires extensive coverage or in-depth analysis. Hence, our new series of “Quickies” will jump right to the “bottom line” and get to the point (if there is one). HA!

Bottom Line: While watching a 6th Season episode of “Hogan’s Heroes” recently, we noticed an unusual and humorous typo at the end of the episode (see screenshot above). Perhaps the title man had taken a cue from the show’s Sgt. Schultz character, and upon seeing his error, chose simply to say, “I see NOTHING!” We may never know if it all was done in jest or what, but Hogan’s Barracks Yahoo Group member, “NPS” offered up the following likely theory:

 “The show was never known as ‘Hogan’s Horde.’ ‘Hogan’s Raiders’ was the working title while it was in development, but as we all know, it was produced only as ‘Hogan’s Heroes.’ Hogan’s Horde was probably just a tongue-in-cheek moniker that Ed Feldman developed for the copyright line. In reality, the rights to the show were owned by Bing Crosby Productions and CBS, and it didn’t really matter what he put next to the copyright date.”
