I Love Lucy
I Love Lucy mistake picture

The Star Upstairs - S4-E25

New this month Continuity mistake: When Lucy's locked out on the penthouse balcony, Ethel places the broom handle through the small round finger hole of the scissors, with the large oval finger hole to the right of the round hole and the blades pointing out, then holds the scissors in place as she puts the broom over the balcony rail. When Lucy retrieves them from the broom, the scissors have flipped over. The blades are pointing out and the broom handle is still through the small round finger hole, but now the large oval hole is to the left of the round hole. (Impossible to do on its own. Try it).

Don Juan and the Starlets - S4-E18

New this month Continuity mistake: After the maid sees Lucy sleeping on the couch and leaves, in the next shot the clock reads 10:00 and Lucy wakes up, but when Lucy checks the bedroom and walks back into the living room, the clock now reads 6:40.

L.A. at Last! - S4-E17

New this month Revealing mistake: At the Brown Derby, when Lucy bumps into the waiter causing him to trip and spill the tray all over William Holden, we can see that the waiter's hand is taped to the bottom of the tray for the stunt to be done efficiently.

First Stop - S4-E14

New this month Visible crew/equipment: While Lucy and Ricky are lying in the sagging mattress "canoe", when the train passes and their bed rolls towards the bunk bed, the end of the set wall can be seen at the right side of the screen.

First Stop - S4-E14

New this month Revealing mistake: After the cheese sandwich experience at Skinner's diner, when Lucy takes the wheel and they all drive off heading to Cincinnati, the Pontiac's glass windshield and rearview mirror are gone, and they're gone again when they end up back at that diner the second time.

Ricky's Movie Offer - S4-E6

New this month Continuity mistake: After Fred secures the chain lock to the front door, with the chain mounted onto the frame of the door, Fred then slides the chain into the door's slide-catch to show Lucy the "burglarproof chain." When Ethel opens the door the chain itself is ripped off the frame, leaving the chain (and the piece that was screwed to the frame) dangling from the slide-catch attached to the door, but in Ethel's closeup the chain is still mounted to the door's frame.

Hollywood Anniversary - S4-E24

New this month Continuity mistake: In season 2, "Anniversary Present", Lucy has the 19th circled on the wall calendar, which is the date of their wedding anniversary, but in this episode when the license bureau in Greenwich, Connecticut sends Ricky a telegram with their wedding date, it's now on the 7th.

Don Juan and the Starlets - S4-E18

New this month Visible crew/equipment: After Fred fibs to Lucy about Ricky spending the night, when Fred walks over to the door just as Ethel walks in, the shadow of the boom mic can be seen moving at the top right corner of the screen.

L.A. at Last! - S4-E17

New this month Continuity mistake: At the start, when the Pontiac convertible turns into the driveway of what should be the Beverly Palms Hotel, the sign with the real name of the hotel can be seen, which reads Beverly Carlton Hotel.

Ethel's Home Town - S4-E16

New this month Continuity mistake: When Ethel asks her old friend Billy to take a group photo of her with Fred and the Ricardos, Ethel poses with everyone as Billy takes only one shot of them together, but when Lucy reads the newspaper article Ethel is posed differently in the cropped "group" picture.

Tennessee Bound - S4-E15

New this month Visible crew/equipment: At the start, when Lucy pulls into the "gas station" the thin cable pulling the Pontiac can be seen in front of the car, and when Ethel walks in front of the car note that the actress quickly glances down and steps over it just as she says they're lost. Additionally, the glass windshield and rearview mirror are gone.

First Stop - S4-E14

New this month Continuity mistake: When Ricky stops the car and backs up trying to locate Aunt Sally's, Lucy gets out of the car wearing a coat and a pantsuit underneath, but in the exterior shot she's wearing a skirt set when she walks over to the shed to read the sign.

California, Here We Come! - S4-E13

New this month Revealing mistake: The Pontiac's glass windshield is gone when the car is loaded down with everyone's stuff, thanks to Fred's packing, and the windshield is also very noticeably gone when they all finally drive off. The rearview mirror, which should be attached to the windshield frame, is gone as well.

California, Here We Come! - S4-E13

New this month Visible crew/equipment: When they're all finally in the Pontiac ready to leave NYC, just as Ricky starts to drive away we can see cables jiggling under the Pontiac, to the left of the front tire, pulling the car. Funny to see how Ricky puts his hand on the gear stick, but never actually does anything with it.

California, Here We Come! - S4-E13

New this month Visible crew/equipment: When "Mickey" takes his mother-in-law's suitcases to the back, just as Lucy and her mother sit down on the couch, we can see the bright shadow of something moving across the piano behind them.

Lucy's Schedule - S1-E33

Lucy Cries Wolf - S4-E1

New this month Visible crew/equipment: After Lucy phones Ricky and fibs about a man being on the fire escape, when Ethel and Fred rush in looking for Lucy, two actors' tape marks can be seen on the floor where Fred and Ethel stand, beside the couch.

Ethel's Home Town - S4-E16

Continuity mistake: Ethel's full name in this episode is Ethel Mae Potter; however in a earlier episode, Fred calls her Ethel Louise, and in another episode she is called Ethel Roberta.

Lucy Thinks Ricky is Trying to Murder Her - S1-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When Ricky and Lucy are dancing in the living room, the camera swings too far to the left, and the edge of the set wall and the adjoining bedroom set can be seen briefly.

Krista

The Anniversary Present - S2-E1

Deliberate mistake: In this episode Lucy is trying to get Ricky to notice that their anniversary is on Monday the 19th by showing him a large calendar with the 19th circled. However, when they are in California and they celebrate their anniversary and Ricky asks for information to be wired to him, the telegram tells him that their anniversary is on the seventh.
