Gilligan

Marooned - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When they are listening to the radio report describing the lost boat, the professor goes from standing up to sitting down between shots.

Joe Tomlin

The Friendly Physician - S2-E29

Factual error: When the castaways are coming back to the island at the end, you can see some of the Los Angeles buildings in the background on the high camera angle.

Joe Tomlin

Gilligan's Personal Magnetism - S3-E21

Continuity mistake: When Gilligan knocks the door off the hut it lands on the Skipper's neck with the life preserver on the top. In the next shot the preserver is on the bottom.

Mister Ed

The Chain of Command - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: When Gilligan falls off of the cliff at the end, he is wearing different clothes and facing a different way than he was when he fell off.

Joe Tomlin

They're Off and Running - S1-E29

Other mistake: In several shots during the first turtle race, Gilligan is inexplicably wearing a wedding band (Bob Denver was married to his first wife at the time and forgot to remove it).

The Sound of Quacking - S1-E8

Visible crew/equipment: During the dream sequence, when Gilligan starts a showdown with Mr.Howell and the Professor, someone's face appears in the window in the background for a second, and it's none of the castaways - someone in the filming crew most likely.

Quick Before It Sinks - S2-E6

Plot hole: Gilligan admits he put the Professor's measuring stick in deeper and deeper waters to catch bigger lobster. So wouldn't the Professor have noticed the stick has been moved further out (and more than once too) in the water rather than think the island is sinking? He always had all positions and locations down to a science in many episodes, so how could this have gotten past him?

The Hunter - S3-E18

Revealing mistake: As Gilligan sits in front of a large boulder, the disguised charge that simulates a bullet strike is easily seen.

Movie Nut

The Invasion - S3-E11

Revealing mistake: In the dream sequence, the boss, E.V.I.L., is bald. You can see the line of the skin wig he has on.

Big Man on a Little Stick - S1-E22

Continuity mistake: As the Professor sends Duke off, he gives the island's position as 110° Latitude, 10° Longitude. In "X Marks The Spot" (S1: E: 19), the position is given as 140° Latitude, 10° Longitude.

Movie Nut

Nyet, Nyet, Not Yet - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: The professor mentions he can't drink vodka with the Russians because he's allergic to alcohol, yet in the episode "Man With A Net" (with Lord Beesley), he drinks a strong alchoholic drink he made along with everyone else with no signs of any sickness, or reaction preventing him from drinking it.

New Neighbor Sam - S1-E28

Revealing mistake: When Mr. Howell and the Professor are thrown by Gilligan and the Skipper, during the struggle you can see Gilligan flying in from the right side. But it can easily see that it is a dummy in Gilligan's clothes.

Movie Nut

Pass the Vegetables, Please - S3-E3

Continuity mistake: The radiation meter the Professor reads disappears between shots.

Movie Nut

Show generally

Continuity mistake: There are several shots of the island used in the series. In the opening, it appears small. In some inland shots it appears immense and mountainous, despite being described numerous times as a "tiny island somewhere in the Pacific."

Movie Nut

Operation: Steam Heat - S2-E25

Revealing mistake: After Gilligan says his line about the earth swallowing them all up, an explosion rocks the area. Between the end of the line, and the rocking, there's a split second of blackness indicating a cut between the line and the action.

Movie Nut

And Then There Were None - S3-E13

Continuity mistake: Whenever one of the castaways falls in the trap and "disappears", there is complete silence when their name is called out, yet when the Skipper falls in (the last of the six), suddenly Gilligan hears all their voices shouting from down below.

Show generally

Revealing mistake: Any time you see the vines used for different purposes, it's painfully obvious that they're very poorly disguised rope, such as the ones the Skipper and Professor use to rock the boat mock-up in the episode "Quick, Before It Sinks."

Movie Nut

The Friendly Physician - S2-E29

Plot hole: The scientist yells for Igor to capture the escaping Castaways, to which Igor responds "capture them yourself" in Ginger's voice. The scientist appears surprised to find out Igor is not Igor, but how can this be? He had to be the one to pull the lever to switch everyone's personalities and bodies around, so he should have already known.

Gilligan's Personal Magnetism - S3-E21

Visible crew/equipment: Toward the end, the group is around the table, talking about Gilligan. Then they see a pear and a bunch of grapes float over to a plate at the head of the table. Skipper goes over and addresses the invisible Gilligan. If you look at the top of the hut, you can see the wires used to make the fruit float. Also, earlier in the hut with Ginger, when Gilligan bit the pear, you can see the wire holding the pear as it shakes after the bite.

Our Vines Have Tender Apes - S3-E20

Audio problem: Towards the end of the episode, the castaways read Tongo's note that he can't take them back with him due to how he behaved with the gorilla. Mr. Howell yells "we won't tell anyone!" followed by other random comments from the others for Tongo to come back. Tongo leaves and as the camera pulls away from the castaways, the same audio repeats itself even though this time doesn't match what anyone is saying.

Trivia

In the opening credits of the black-and-white episodes, the US flag at the marina is at half-mast because the opening was filmed shortly after the Kennedy assassination.
