Mayberry R.F.D.

Andy and Helen Get Married - S1-E1

Other mistake: Sam Jones' son, Mike, tells Aunt Bee that the farmhouse has been in their family for 150 years. While showing Aunt Bee a photo album, he points to a photo and says, "That's my great-great-grandfather who started this farm." Pointing to a woman in the same photo, Mike says, "That's my great-grandmother. She lives in Philadelphia." It is very unlikely that the daughter of a man who had started a farm 150 years earlier would still be alive. Assuming the man started the farm when he was in his 20s, he would have had to father a child when he was in his 70s and she would now have to be in her 100s.

The Panel Show - S1-E6

Revealing mistake: The painted backdrop depicting the street and distant buildings is much too close to the Mayberry City Council office. As people come and go, they cast shadows on the backdrop.

The Panel Show - S1-E6

Factual error: Howard and Emmett travel to New York City to take part in a televised panel discussion on the merits of city life versus small-town life. The station is "KZOK Channel 12." All television stations east of the Mississippi River begin with the letter W, not K.
