The Duel - S3-E4

Audio problem: Season 3, Episode 68, "The Duel". Sometimes the tank's co-axial machine gun is firing, but no gunfire sound is heard.

Deadeye Dick - S5-E9

Character mistake: Bob's father's name is Harry Foley according to Granger and the end credits. But James Drury apparently forgot this in one scene, where the Virginian addresses Harry as "Tom."

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)

PT 73 Where Are You? - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: Halfway through the show, they get caught not having the boat, and McHale gets taken by boat to the commander's office. As he leaves the pier, he drops the rope on the seat next to him, they do a close-up and the rope is behind him about 5 feet away.

Lucy Buys a Boat - S1-E30

Revealing mistake: While Lucy and Vivian are on the boat we can see the two long tracks on the floor in the boat's galley, so when Viv falls asleep in the chair she brought from home, the chair legs are able to keep gliding along the tracks on the floor from one side to the other. (00:19:45)

Invasion Earth - S1-E31

Continuity mistake: We see that the XL18 pilot is sitting in the right seat of the cockpit. In the next shot he has changed to the left seat.

A Visit from Grandpa - S1-E11

Audio problem: When Judy asks "But Grandpa, why didn't you tell us what was going on?" towards the end of the episode, she is speaking with Jane's voice.
