* {{Fanservice}}: The series is full of fanservice in general, though it never quite keeps pace with the {{double entendre}}s. It probably doesn't counts as typical fan service. Both female and male characters with various shades of attractiveness are forever baring legs for increasingly spurious reasons. Were people tuning in to see Helga or Yvette get undressed? Who can say, but ''Allo! Allo!'' was a family show. Quite a lot of British comedy from the 70's and 80's had [[NakedPeopleAreFunny girls dancing around in their underwear for no obvious reason.]] It was more a genre convention than a deliberate attempt to boost ratings.

* DecendingCeiling: In "Herr Flick's Revenge", René, the Colonel and Hans are trapped in a castle dungeon underneath one of these, and Herr Flick orders Helga to lower the ceiling to torture the 3 men into confessing where the painting of the fallen Madonna is. Luckily, general Von Klinkerhoffen arrives in time to stop Herr Flick.

Very much a parody of ''Series/SecretArmy'', it starred Gorden Kaye as René Artois, owner of a restaurant in a small occupied French town, and a whole host of other characters (for a longer see [[Characters/AlloAllo here]]). For the most part, René -- who would introduce each episode with a FourthWall-breaking monologue to the camera in which he'd helpfully recap the plot for us and gripe about it -- just wants to keep his head down, stay out of trouble and fool around [[KavorkaMan with the improbable number of beautiful women who are passionately attracted to him]], but unfortunately for him keeps getting dragged into numerous intrigues and shenanigans involving the [[LaResistance French Resistance]] and the [[ThoseWackyNazis occupying Germans]], both of whom view him as essential to their various schemes.
