Hogan’s Heroes

I see men, women and children being gassed
by the bumbling, friendly Sgt. Schultz.

I am in a motel
watching porno with Col. Hogan.

I am there when LeBeau’s career
turns into a soap opera.

I wish I could tell you
I was there when Kinchloe’s stardust disappeared,

or when Newkirk left Stalag 17
to host a quiz show and die.

I am Col. Klink
and you get thirty days in the kuhler.

It has been years since this has been showed in the UK. I still occasionally quote Shultzie but anyone under the age of forty thinks I'm referencing Manuel from Fawlty Towers. I like it but I doubt many younger readers will get it. They should get the idea of it though.

I buy a magazine called SFX and every month they take one of those old shows and asks: Where are they now? It's always interesting.

Here in the U.S. it's a staple of the cable networks.It's always on somewhere.
