Day 17- A scene that makes you smile?

Wow, this is hard. There are tons of scenes that make me smile. Whenever Carter is being his quirky self. Newkirk and Freddy. Hogan destroying that hotel lobby (with Newkirk trying to get the banana out of the way). Most scenes with the dogs. Colonel Crittendon being Colonel Crittendon. Schultz’s tantrums. Scenes that show just how much the boys care about each other. And not to mention, scenes with that adorable British safe cracker, the Artist.

I think I’d have to make a list as I watch the series and then narrow it down from there. And then figure out if it counts as a scene that makes me laugh or one that makes me smile.

Luckily, though, the question is scene. As is, any scene, not just favorite that makes you smile. Which I just noticed and which does help. So…

And… this is still hard. How do I pick just one?

Hmmm… I’ll pick a cute scene. When Carter brought Freddy home. He calls down to Freddy and the little guy comes up. And then later when Newkirk makes him the little Lebeau outfit (and I really need to get to the toy store, buy a stuffed chimp, and make an outfit).

Yes, I know that’s two scenes. But they’re connected, so there.

And a little off topic, Hogan’s Heroes is on MeTV right now. Art for Hogan’s Sake. Anyways, I tend to put the remote on the floor next to my chair (the only way I can avoid losing it). And all of a sudden, the screen goes blank and Netflix starts loading. I look down and see my dog, foot on the remote, giving me one of the most innocent looks she can manage. I don’t think she likes this episode.

Day 18 - The scene, or episode, which made you learn something you didn’t know about WW2.

When I started watching the show, I watched for the humor, but as I continued on, I started getting more and more interested in the actual events of WWII. I wanted to educate myself to understand some of the humor better, but also be aware of the real and horrifying events many of the episodes were specifically loosely based (would parodied make more sense? I think the proper word for the show is its satire…) from.

Before, my knowledge of WWII was mostly the basics, as far as I remember tbh. I don’t think any of my classes in went really in depth into WWII, unless I was wasn’t in class that day (and I haven’t taken the specific WWII class at my college because of a supposedly bad professor).

So, here’s the specific thing I learned or went to look up in some form because of Hogan’s Heroes:

The July 20th plot to kill Hitler, which was alluded to in “Operation Briefcase” (2x08).

American General Barton may think Hogan’s a traitor, but the colonel’s orders are to rescue the general, even if it means kidnapping a German field marshal to get the job done.

Carter being excited and enthusiastic about explosives is one of the most adorable things ever.

I can’t remember if I posted day 17 last night or early this morning. If it was last night, awesome. If it was early this morning, you get two days in one. Of course, it’s 11:48pm right now, so it’s close to being tomorrow anyways.

Day 18 - The scene, or episode, which made you learn something you didn’t know about WW2.

In Tanks for the Memories, the Germans had a remote controlled tank. Curious, I looked it up and learned about the Goliath Tanks.

I hadn’t known remote controlled tanks had been a thing yet.

Day 19 - An important (or not, your call) event of WW2 you wished had been featured/mentioned on the show.

Meant to do this earlier, but whoops, I fell asleep! Anyway, this day won’t be too long because I honestly can’t think of any other event of WWII that would’ve been appropriate to feature/mention. Plus, even if I could, I’m not sure how much of those events were even known back in the 60s.

I liked the episodes dealing with the French Resistance and plans of the Liberation of Paris, but I don’t think they ever mentioned the actual liberation, so maybe that? It’d be a nice Lebeau-related episode.

Though, maybe some more events pertaining to London. I liked the episode where they mention Blitzkrieg (I think it’s “Klink’s Rocket”) mostly because it technically wasn’t a mission (at least not from London). It was just good old payback. Plus, Newkirk gets really annoyed/upset at hearing this news and I like seeing that side come out sometimes.

I guess the obvious one would be—had they continued the show—actually featuring the end of the war and of course their liberation.
