The Lieutenant has finished copying the paintings (The Fallen Madonna... and the Van Gogh), and delivers them as sausages. Sausages also come from Captain Bertorelli (real ones), Monsieur LeClerc (submarine batteries), and Officer Crabtree (explosives), and soon they're all mixed up in the German officer's pants.

The Germans arrest René, and the Colonel demands an explanation for the knockwursts with explosives in them. After a small lie, René is sent home with around a dozen knockwursts to hang in his kitchen. The British have sent a spy camera with which the Resistance should be able to photograph the plans for the German invasion of Great Britain, but the camera landed in the vineyard of Monsieur Alphonse, and since the Germans commandeered the vineyard, the Resistance cannot go and look for the camera. This problem is solved when the General orders every peasant in Nouvion to work on the vineyard, which also leaves room for some assassination attempts on the General's life.

This was _make-you-laugh_ funny. Spoof the French WW2 generation that preceded the great Pink Panthers with Peter Sellers.


The Nazis are always great laughing material which they absolutely deserve after all the sick stuff they did in WW2. Especially Richard Gibson do a good sadistic Gestapo officer and it is always fun to see how he forces his Nazi secretary to undress herself. Sadly the show drown in it's repetitive gags that they recycle for each episode. I can not understand how people can't lost interest after the first seasons as there was several actors that were replaced with inferior actors in the last seasons including the mentioned Gibson. In small doses it has a laugh every now and then.
