Synopsis


The sixth and final season of Hogan's Heroes features all the familiar characters, save one. Ivan Dixon, the series' only African-American regular, has vacated the role of electronics expert Sgt. Kinchloe; although Kinchloe's absence is never explained, he is for all intents and purposes replaced by another black character, Sgt. Richard Baker, played by Kenneth Washington. Otherwise, it is the mixture as before, with American POW Col. Robert Hogan (Bob Crane) efficiently running a vast Allied counterespionage and sabotage operation from within the walls of his prison barracks, with his dimwitted German captors Col. Klink (Werner Klemperer) and Sgt. Schultz (John Banner) never suspecting a thing -- or in the cast of Schultz, pretending never to suspect a thing lest he be shipped to the Russian Front for gross incompetence. Season six offers one of the series' most off-putting episodes, "Operation Tiger," which has Hogan and his fellow heroes committing cold-blooded murder (albeit with no bodies, blood, or onscreen violence) in order to rescue a sexy underground operative. On a lighter note, Bernard Fox plays a dual role as the irksome Allied spy Col. Crittenden and an aristocratic British traitor in the two-part story "Lady Chitterly's Lover;" and Alice Ghostley, who during season four briefly replaced Kathleen Freeman in the role of Col. Klink's would-be bride, Gertrude Linkmeier, shows up as the wife of a German general in "That's No Lady, That's My Spy." The series finale features Marlyn Mason in the role of beautiful singer-spy Lily Frankel (a part she'd played in earlier seasons), who helps Hogan and company destroy a German-guided missile base.
