The Beverly Hillbillies picture

The Grun Incident - S9-E15

Factual error: In the opening scene, the Clampetts are driving home from Malibu. From Malibu to Beverly Hills is east. But as they head home, the ocean is on their left, which means they are driving west.

The Party - S7-E8

Revealing mistake: When Albert and Harold are fighting over the cracker Albert's face goes into the trifle, and if you look carefully we can see that he just lets go of the cracker and puts his head in the trifle deliberately.

Water's Edge - S3-E3

Factual error: Pete Taylor's corpse is a bare skeleton after just two years in the sea-shack's attic, though it shouldn't be. There should at least be traces of hair and clothing surrounding the bones. (00:40:00)

Lucy Buys a Boat - S1-E30
