I may be the very last person in the world to get this, but a bit of trivia for those of you even younger and less hip to the jive than I am:

I'd always wondered what "Six Lessons from Madame LaGrange" referred to. Today I was looking up another song and stumbled across a Jimmy Dorsey tune by the name of "Six Lessons from Madame La Zonga." Intrigued, I did a bit of searching and found that the song also inspired a 1941 comedy starring Lupe Velez and Leon Errol, featuring duelling con men, a band from Oklahoma, and a hot-blooded nightclub owner/singer/dancer.

So far, so good, but where did the Hogan's Heroes writers get "Madame LaGrange" instead? It was written too early to be a ZZ Top reference (and La Grange, Texas, rhymes with "strange" anyway). Well, it turns out that there was a famous French coloratura soprano in the mid-19th century named Anna de La Grange, and there's actually a dance tune--specifically, a polka mazurka!--from 1855 called "Madame La Grange." You can see the sheet music on the Library of Congress website here. And somewhat hilariously from an Internet fandom perspective, the composer's name was J. Troll.

Not able to track it down myself at the moment (rather swamped with RL stuff), but I've got the following exchange stuck in my head:

Hogan: Klink's right about one thing. Zuglitz is a graveyard for us.
Carter: Hey, Colonel, why don't we do something about it?
Hogan: Carter, I think we will.

Can anyone remind me which ep that's from, and maybe a one-line description of the plot? I want to say it's the one where they make Schultz look like he has ESP ("Col. Klink's Secret Weapon"? "To Düsseldorf! FLAT as a pancake!"), but it's been too long since my last marathon. :P

Title: Spies
Author: partly
Rating/Warnings: PG, no warnings
Characters: Hogan
Summary: Hogan Gives a pep talk
Disclaimer: All credit goes to CBS/Bing Crosby Productions


"They are the enemy. You have to think of them as your enemy." Hogan spoke the words calmly and firmly. It was a speech he had given countless times before, one he knew he would have to give countless times in the future. "You can't afford to let your guard down. You can't ever think of them as friends."

I couldn't help thinking of Hogan's Heroes when I read part of this and I thought other fans might find it interesting. (:

I've tried to get everyone in the main crew, but I have yet to make a good one with Kinch. And yes I know there are a bunch of Schultz. Go ahead and grab, but don't claim as your own, please. Hope you all enjoy. :)
