Opie's Ill-Gotten Gain - S4-E8

New this month Continuity mistake: When Barney is "reciting" the preamble to the Constitution, he messes up his hair. When they show him in close-ups it is messed up, but when it goes back to him and Andy in the scene it is combed. It does that a couple of times.

Class Reunion - S3-E19

Continuity mistake: When Andy and Barney are looking through the yearbook, Barny's middle name is Milton. But Barney says many times throughout the series that his name is Bernard P. Fife.

The Big House - S3-E32

Revealing mistake: The jailed criminals take the key and open the jail cell door. The problem is the dead bolt never moves with the key, showing the door was never locked to begin with.

Off to Hollywood - S6-E7

Revealing mistake: When the bus pulls up for the Taylor family to leave for Hollywood you can see behind the bus a California freeway with cars moving in both directions. I don't think that Mayberry had a freeway right outside town. The scene is fixed when they return in "Aunt Bee on TV." There has been a tree put there so the road wouldn't show.

Mayberry Goes Bankrupt - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: In establishing scenes throughout the first part of the episode, Andy is seen driving up to Meyers' home which seems to be located far from neighbors and on a dirt road. In the "renovation" scene and those following, Frank's home is located on a paved road with other homes nearby in the shot. Clearly a different set entirely.

The Pickle Story - S2-E11

Other mistake: Aunt Bee refers to losing the pickle contest 10 years in a row (which Clara corrects to 11, leading us to believe they have been in the same competition), but this is her 2nd year in Mayberry, having not seen Andy for years in her season 1 intro as the "new housekeeper", (or Opie - ever) in season 1.

Goober Takes a Car Apart - S5-E17

Factual error: Halfway through the show, Goober takes the motor out of the car and they start it up in the Sheriff's office. If you look at the direction of the fan, it would be blowing the air forward instead of towards the rear of the engine. It would be fighting the air coming through the radiator instead of pulling it.

Barney Comes to Mayberry - S7-E19

Continuity mistake: When Barney and Andy are at the class reunion dinner, there is a band playing, but the accordionist's fingers aren't in sync to the music.

Goober Goes to an Auto Show - S8-E22

Factual error: Goober and the Taylors stop and get gas in Raleigh before heading back to Mayberry. As they are waiting, a Coors Brewing Company truck is seen driving past the service station. Coors Beer was not sold east of the Mississippi River until the mid-1980s.

Aunt Bee's Medicine Man - S3-E24

Continuity mistake: Andy and Barney are playing checkers near the end of the episode. Andy can be seen making 2 moves in a row, skipping Barney's move.

The Arrest of the Fun Girls - S5-E28

Character mistake: Barney states when the Fun Girls were in town before, in Season 4, Thelma Lou didn't speak to him for 10 days. That's not true, they made up the same day.

A Black Day for Mayberry - S4-E7

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the show, two men walk into the courthouse. (As a sidenote, one of the men is Rance Howard, which is Ronnie Howard's real dad). Barney is the only one there, as Andy is out. The two men sit down to wait for Andy. Rance Howard is not wearing a hat, and he is in a light-colored suit. When Opie walks through the door looking for Andy, you can see that Rance is not sitting there any more, and now it's a man with a dark suit and wearing a hat.

Barney Hosts a Summit Meeting - S8-E21

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the meeting participants are in the kitchen, the Russian guy opens the icebox, does not close it, and sits at the table. When Aunt Bee comes in immediately thereafter, the door is closed. She opens it again and partially closes it; but in the next shot, it is fully open.

Barney Hosts a Summit Meeting - S8-E21

Visible crew/equipment: When Andy and Barney start to get into their car, the boom mic is reflected in the front window.

Season 1 generally

Other mistake: At the beginning of the series, Hope Summers' character is called Bertha Edwards. Later in the series she is Clara Johnson; still later she is Clara Edwards.

Hot Rod Otis - S4-E19

Continuity mistake: Otis is in the jail and can't sleep. He ask Andy for some water. Andy gets up, unlocks the door and then closes it again (clearly leaving the key in). He comes back a few seconds later and the key is gone and back on the wall.

Lost and Found - S6-E19

Continuity mistake: Aunt Bee won a garbage disposal in "Aunt Bee on TV" and it's one of the gifts she keeps, but she buys another one in a later episode, "Lost and Found," with insurance money.

A Plaque for Mayberry - S1-E25

Continuity mistake: About 2/5 through the show, Barney comes into the office with a family tree chart. The edge of the paper is on the bottom of the roll sticking out to the left, there's a cut to a different angle and the edge of the paper is on top, not sticking out and still facing to the left. On top, it should be facing to the right.

The New Doctor - S1-E24

Continuity mistake: About 20 minutes in, Barney knocks the announcement bell off the door trying to sneak out of the pharmacy, Andy comes in right after and the bell rings when he opens the door. You can see the bell swinging above the door.

Barney Gets His Man - S1-E30

Revealing mistake: When Barney and Andy are searching the woods for an escaped con, they stop to rest and you can see the light level of the woods go up and down as the crew tries to adjust the reflector screen for the desired lighting.
