      "Schultz Name Meaning. German: status name for a village headman, from a contracted form of Middle High German schultheize. The term originally denoted a man responsible for collecting dues and paying them to the lord of the manor; it is a compound of sculd(a) 'debt', 'due' + a derivative of heiz(z)an 'to command'."

      That Schultz? LOL.

      HOGAN'S HEROS, 1970s comedy sitcom on TV. Shown daily on cable on ME TV now. Story about Allied prisoners of war during WWII. One of the leading characters on the show is a German guard, Sgt. Schultz, who always says, "I know nothing!" ("nutting") whenever he's asked something or comes under scrutiny or suspicion. Pretty hilarious show. Sorry, I'd forgotten your age. Way before your time.

      I'm more for I Love Lucy and M*A*S*H*, Little House on the Prairie and The High Chaparral, Skippy The Bush Kangaroo (Australia) and Sergeant Preston (Canada).
      So, I used to do older shows (When I watched TV). Just, I haven't seen that one.

      Well, if you have any German ancestry, then you may not take too kindly to the show. It makes the Germans look like bumbling idiots. But then, it's a comedy. I say if you can't laugh at yourself......... [;>)
