Somewhere I have one of those airplanes made out of bullets.

Even as a kid I saw nothing remotely funny about a television show with bumbling Germans holding Americans prisoners. In the summer of 1963 the Saturday Evening Post ran a three-part series about German concentration camps and I never knew that part of history before reading the series. It made a huge impression on an 11-year-old preteen. Could you get an 11-year-old to read such a series today, strung out over three issues and six weeks to boot? (To this day I've never seen a full episode of Hogan's Heroes).
