Show generally

Revealing mistake: The hallway that leads to the den and the back door of the kitchen has a door at the end of it, when this door is opened we see what looks like pine trees and mountains, we know that the Stevens have neighbors on that side of the house, so that when the door is opened you can blatantly tell that it is a picture.

Show generally

Revealing mistake: In several episodes, the window over the kitchen sink is shown from the outside, while snoopy people look in. The window shown in these exterior shots is far too low to be the same window that is over the Steven's kitchen sink, which is shown in many shots looking out.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In more than one episode the Steven's front door changes. In some shots the door is solid paneled but in other shots the door has a half circle window at the top. It seems the window usually appears in close up shots of people talking.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In the early shows, the door between the dining room and kitchen is a swinging door with louvers. In later shows there is a regular sized door with partial louvers. However, after this change, there are a couple of episodes within the same season, where the regular sized louver door is a solid door with no louvers.

I, Darrin, Take This Witch, Samantha - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Darrin collapses after Samantha zaps him the drink, in the next shot the glass is on the table with the straw across the top.

I, Darrin, Take This Witch, Samantha - S1-E1

Audio problem: When Samantha and Darrin are at his ex-girlfriend's house for dinner, Samantha is doing all kinds of things to sabotage the dinner, even making a gust of wind come through the front door thus blowing the ex's wig off. The ex girlfriend is screaming but the screams don't match up to what her mouth is doing.

Be it Ever So Mortgaged - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: When Gladys is looking through the window, you can see part of the facade cross bracing.

It Shouldn't Happen to a Dog - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: Samantha's hair goes from neat to messy and back again during the chase scene in the alley.

It Takes One to Know One - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: When Larry tells Darrin that he is going home, the blinds behind Darrin are shut, however in the close up of Darrin, the blinds are open.

And Something Makes Three - S1-E12

Other mistake: While Gladys Kravitz is standing in front of her house, which is across the street from the front of the Stephens' house, Gladys sees the Stephens' backyard just as Sam zaps a swimming pool and then zaps it away, but since the Stevens' backyard is located behind the house where the living room and dining room are, this would be impossible even for nosy Gladys Kravitz.

A Vision of Sugar Plums - S1-E15

Factual error: Samantha looks out a back dormer window to see Darrin in the front yard.

Red Light, Green Light - S1-E23

Continuity mistake: When Dave sees Darrin's ad for the community meeting, he suggests a couple of changes, one of them being to add a line saying "and bring your friends". But the ad was shown in close-up shortly before Dave's arrival, and there was already a line saying "Be sure and bring all your friends". (00:13:35)

Which Witch is Which? - S1-E24

Continuity mistake: Sam gets fitted for a "new" dress that she wore in earlier episodes 7,10,and 13.

Driving is the Only Way to Fly - S1-E26

There's No Witch Like an Old Witch - S1-E27

Open the Door Witchcraft - S1-E28

Deliberate mistake: Sam and Darrin are "trapped" in the garage; however, you can see a side door.

Cousin Edgar - S1-E36

Continuity mistake: The shaving cream smears on the mirror are different in the close-ups than they are on the wider shots. (00:04:25)

Alias Darrin Stephens - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: When Sam is looking for Darrin to tell him the good news, Aunt Clara walks into the living room holding the large book with its cloth bookmark hanging over the top front of the book (facing Sam), but in the next shot the bookmark has switched to hanging over the top back of the book (facing Clara). (00:13:40)

Alias Darrin Stephens - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: When Aunt Clara tells Sam not to worry about Darrin because she has her book of spells, there's a closeup of the book with its binding facing left and Clara pointing to the large title "Spells and Incantations" on its cover, but in other shots Clara's holding the book with its binding facing right (we see Vol. 7 on the binding) so the cover is facing the opposite way, and there is no title on the cover.
