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, despite a historically and morally questionable premise. Hogan's Heroes Season 2, like the other seasons, is set in a Nazi prison camp during World War II. These Hogan's Heroes DVDs follow 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 these Hogan's Heroes videos are 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 Hogan's Heroes season two collection presents all the episodes of the controversial series' second season.
Don't miss Hogan's Heroes Season 2 for hours of serious comedy as soldiers work behind enemy lines to outwit the Germans in World War II.
