Sgt. Hans Schultz

Character

Oberfeldwebel (During World War II the equivalent to Master Sergeant) Hans Georg Schultz, serial number 23789, is Klink's bumbling, inept and somewhat dimwitted, Sergeant of the Guard who is forever taking small bribes from the prisoners, with whom he is overly friendly. Like other German characters on the series, Schultz's rank insignia are inconsistent. He is most often wearing an overcoat with no stripes on his sleeves and the collar and shoulder insignia of Oberfeldwebel. However, when not wearing the overcoat, he displays two stripes at the cuffs of his tunic sleeves, which together with his collar and shoulder insignia indicate the rank of Hauptfeldwebel. This is the equivalent of a Company First Sergeant with the same pay grade as Oberfeldwebel. Sometimes Hogan and the prisoners will openly discuss details of their latest plot in front of Schultz or even tell him directly what they're up to. However, when Schultz is confronted by blatant evidence of the prisoners' clandestine activities, he will simply look the other way, repeating "I hear nothing, I see nothing, I know nothing!" (or, more commonly as the series went on, simply "I see nothing–NOTHING!"). This eventually became one of the main catchphrases of the series, and probably is the one most widely used by fans of the show. Though generally shown to be amiably incompetent, he on occasion proves his mettle, as can be seen in episodes such as "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to London", in which he catches Hogan assisting another man attempting to escape, and goes so far as to move Hogan along at gunpoint. Hogan’s plans sometimes require Shultz to pretend to be a high-ranking German officer (including, in one episode, Reichsmarschall Hermann Göring), but they do not always succeed.
