Episode Info

One of Hogan's Heroes' best episodes, "Klink vs. the Gonculator" goes beyond the series' standard spoof of wartime bureaucracy and offers a wide-ranging satire of corporate paranoia and behind-covering. When Klink becomes convinced that Carter's rabbit trap is a secret electronic device, Hogan seizes upon this misconception in order to help German defector Major Lutz (Noam Pitlik) escape to London. Persuading Klink that Carter's device is something called a "gonculator," Hogan further convinces Klink -- and the German top brass -- to bring Lutz into Stalag 13 as an "electronics expert." One of the funniest scenes finds both Klink and Burkhalter assuring each other that Carter's creation is "not as good as our gonculator." Written by Phil Sharp, "Klink vs. the Gonculator" first aired on October 5, 1968.
