The Bob Newhart Show

The Bob Newhart Show (1972)

7 mistakes

Genres: Comedy

Show generally

Character mistake: In episode 1.19, Howard Borden goes to Bob's office and says it's the first time he's been there. In fact, he had come to the office to address Bob's "fear of flying" group in the first episode.

Show generally

Other mistake: In the opening credits, Bob answers the phone. None of the buttons light up when the phone rings. On that style of phone, the light would indicate which line to answer. The phone is obviously a prop.

Show generally

Visible crew/equipment: In season 2, episode 6, "Have You Met Miss Dietz?", at 0:07:45 into the episode, the camera is on Carol sitting at her desk talking. Behind her, you see a shadow of someone walking by. (My guess is that it was Jerry Robinson getting into position to enter the scene about 23 seconds later from that same location.)

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In the opening credits where Bob is on the 'el' platform, the train car he is sitting in is different from the one he enters in the scene before. The car he is shown entering is an older car with small windows and the car he is sitting in is a newer model with much larger windows.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Episode 1-1, "Fly the Unfriendly Skies": When Bob talks to his friend Howard about flying, Howard's hands move from resting in his jacket pockets to his hips between shots.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: "Let's Get Away From It Almost": About 2/3 into the episode, Bob pulls out his suitcase to start packing, sets it on the bed and opens it. After being interrupted by their neighbor the scene moves back to the bed where the suitcase is closed again even though no one has gone near it.

Show generally

Deliberate mistake: The circular desk where Carol sits should be rotated 180 degrees so she is facing the elevators. How many times have you gotten off an elevator in a fancy office building only to see the back of the receptionist's head?

Trivia

While Bob Newhart is a father himself, he was adamant about Bob Hartley not having any children. When the writers told him they wanted to introduce a child in season six, he told them the script was good, and then asked them who was going to play Bob.
