The Big Heist - S4-E5

Trivia: Arnold is in court and the judge asks the family how they know him. Right after Mr. Drummond says "I'm his father", Willis says "I'm his brother" and puts emphasis on "brother." The reason for this was revealed on a blooper program; in an earlier take, just after actor Conraid Bain said "I'm his father", actor Todd Bridges blurted out "I'm his son."

The Monkees (1966)

The Picture Frame - S2-E2

Trivia: Davy is asked for a "recent picture" and produces a baby picture, presumably of himself. The same picture was used in season 3, episode 5 of Leave It To Beaver, titled "Baby Picture"; only this time it's Beaver's baby picture.

Wonder Woman in Hollywood - S1-E14

Factual error: Wonder Woman is flying to Hollywood, and the iconic sign is shown. However, in the early 1940's (when this season is set), the sign read 'Hollywoodland'.

The Kiss And The Kiss-Off - S6-E25

Trivia: During "Tool Time", Tim shows a crayon picture and says it was sent in by a young viewer named Kady Allen. Kady Allen is Tim Allen's real-life daughter.

Batman (1966)

The Contaminated Cowl (1) - S2-E35

Continuity mistake: After the Mad Hatter's spray turns Batman's cowl pink, Batman and Robin are shown in the Batmobile, headed back to the Batcave. The stock shot shows Batman wearing his regular blue cowl while inside the car. Once they get to the Batcave, Batman's cowl is pink again.

Trivia: Trina McGee (then known as Trina McGee-Davis) played Angela, Shawn's teenaged girlfriend. In real life, Trina was then in her 30s, married, and had three children.

How Cory and Topanga Got Their Groove Back - S7-E18

Continuity mistake: Cory is walking around taking back flyers he'd earlier passed out. In one shot he grabs a flyer out of a young man's hand but in the very next shot, the young man is still holding the flyer.

Jeff Swanson

The Truth About Honesty - S6-E20

Trivia: Eric is telling lies to impress a girl he's just met. The last one he told, "I'm Batman", in real life wasn't a lie after all. Will Friedle, who played Eric, was doing the voice of Batman in the cartoon series Batman Beyond around the time this episode was taped.

Jeff Swanson

My Baby Valentine - S6-E16

Continuity mistake: Just after Cory talks about being a "baby shower machine", Morgan walks past him. There's then a quick shot of Alan and then we see Cory again, and again Morgan walks past him. It's not the same shot from two different angles, as Cory is acting differently each time.

Jeff Swanson

Me and Mr. Joad - S2-E4

Trivia: William Daniels, who played Mr. Feeny, is sitting at the window and says "Ahhh, St. Eligius..." St. Eligius was the name of the hospital in the TV series St. Elsewhere, in which Daniels played Dr. Craig.

Jeff Swanson

Uncle Billy's Visit - S6-E26

Trivia: William Woodson, who plays the movie theater manager, is a retired voice artist. His voice can be heard narrating during the opening credits of the Odd Couple TV series; he's also done voices for Superfriends and WKRP in Cincinnati.

Beaver, the Caddie - S6-E21

Visible crew/equipment: As Beaver, Gilbert and the golfers walk toward the camera and continue offscreen at the end of the episode, the shadow of a man wearing glasses falls on them (none of the actors were wearing glasses).

Jeff Swanson

Season 5 generally

Other mistake: The opening credits for season 5 show June coming out of the front door with a pitcher of what looks like iced tea, and calling for Ward, Wally and Beaver who are all working outside. But the door opens by itself as she comes out, and then closes by itself behind her. If the entire family is outside, who opened and closed the door?

Jeff Swanson

The School Picture - S4-E30

Continuity mistake: When Beaver makes a face for the school picture, he sticks his tongue out. But when Mrs. Rayburn and Miss Landers are looking at the picture sometime later, Beaver isn't sticking his tongue out.

Jeff Swanson

The Dramatic Club - S4-E24

Continuity mistake: When June is talking to Wally, she's wearing a wristwatch and her wedding ring on her left hand. But in a close-up shot of her hands while she's making a sandwich, her left hand is bare with no watch or ring. Back to the wide shot, and the watch and ring are on her hand again.

I Love Lucy (1951)

I Love Lucy mistake picture

Redecorating - S2-E8

Revealing mistake: At the end of the episode, when Ricky and Lucy walk into the bedroom to see the new wallpaper, look behind them when the bedroom door opens and you'll catch a glimpse of William Frawley - waiting for his cue - hiding behind a wall in the background before he ducks back out of sight.

I Love Lucy (1951)

Home Movies - S3-E19

Plot hole: Toward the end of the episode, when the spliced-together movie is shown, there are several scenes from the movie Lucy, Fred and Ethel shot, often showing all three of them on screen at the same time. The problem is that no one else was there with them, yet the camera follows them as they move around the room. Who was running their camera?

Jeff Swanson

Beaver's Dance - S3-E21

Continuity mistake: There are a couple of continuity errors in the dance scene: First, the 4 girls sitting across from the boys switch positions from one shot to the next, then the last girl (long dark hair) disappears from the row of girls entirely, only to show up on the dance floor later in the scene. She was across from (and should have been paired up with) Beaver; instead, the teacher nods toward a now-empty chair and remarks that they "ran out of girls".

Beaver's Tree - S3-E8

Visible crew/equipment: The shadow of the boom mike is visible in the background when Wally is saying that June looks "ritzy".
