Best family TV mistakes of 1964

Path of Destruction - S2-E2

Plot hole: In order to build up suspense, Virgil and Brains stand on the Crab Logger as its dangerous fuel is pumped out, despite the fact that it is hanging on the edge of a precipice. In fact they could have left as soon as they had plumbed in the pipes to empty the fuel tanks - the whole procedure is controlled by Scott in Thunderbird 1 and they make absolutely no contribution to the operation at all. They do not need to disconnect the pipes; they are left behind and dropped from Thunderbird 1 as planned. They just stand there chatting about how much danger they are in until jumping clear at the very last second. Silly buggers.

Morticia and the Psychiatrist - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When Morticia is watching Gomez and the trains, at the second of the collision and explosion, it's a re-use of the shot when Mr. Hilliard is there, as in just a split second, you can see him, then there's Morticia again.

Flipper picture

The Gulf Between - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: Bud is lying on a surf board, talking to Flipper. During different camera angles, his position on the board changes. He goes from the middle to almost the top. At the end of the scene, in the wide-shot, he's always to the end of the board. He also goes from being centered with a foot on each side of the board to being on the left-side with just that foot in the water.
