Toys in Babeland - S4-E2

Revealing mistake: As Larry walks up to the Stephens' house, his shadow falls across the "house" and "street" behind him, revealing that it is a painted backdrop. (00:14:45)

My, What Big Ears You Have - S4-E14

Factual error: When Abner opens the carton in their garage, Gladys asks what it is, Abner replies that it is a table saw, however, it is a radial arm saw.

Super Arthur - S6-E20

Revealing mistake: Paul Lynde is supposedly "in" the mirror near the front door, but as he waves his arm to cast a spell, the shadow of his arm waving is visible at the far left, revealing he is actually standing off camera at a spot where his reflection is visible. Elizabeth Montgomery also briefly glances at him. (00:02:25)

To Trick or Treat or Not to Trick or Treat - S6-E7

Revealing mistake: The wire used to control the flaming arrow's flight is visible in the closeup. (00:21:00)

Allergic to Macedonian Dodo Birds - S4-E11

Visible crew/equipment: When Samantha and Aunt Clara are on the roof of the house, the shadow of what appears to be someone's arm appears against the "sky" backdrop on the left side. (00:23:00)

Instant Courtesy - S5-E13

Other mistake: Samantha is reading a 4-line note from Endora. The paper is semi-transparent and in a shot from the front, we can easily see the writing through the paper. However, after the note is "twitched" into a second, shorter note, there's another shot from the front - and the lettering looks exactly the same as it did before. (00:16:40)

It's So Nice to Have a Spouse Around the House - S5-E5

Plot hole: Darrin tells Serena that it was a good idea to have Endora babysit Tabitha. However, he wasn't even home when Endora left with Tabitha; he was unaware that a sitter was even needed. How could he have known? (00:12:40)

Jeff Swanson

Accidental Twins - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: The doorknob on the nursery room door is on the right side of the door whether it's viewed from outside or inside the room. It should be on the left side in one of the views and the right side in the other. (00:07:00)

Jeff Swanson

Sam's Spooky Chair - S3-E12

Continuity mistake: When Sam and Endora are talking in the foyer, the glass-paneled door at the end of the hallway is closed. When Darrin is seen in the study moments later fighting to get the chair in the closet, the door can be seen against the wall in the hallway, as it would be in the open position. When Darrin stumbles out of the study a moment later, the door is closed again.


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 Chance on Love - S6-E26

Visible crew/equipment: The shadow of one of the cameras - complete with protruding lens - is visible on Jack Cassidy's coat as he walks toward the living room. (00:15:20)

Jeff Swanson

Samantha Fights City Hall - S5-E9

Continuity mistake: After Samantha sees the statue talking to her, her expression goes from shocked to annoyed and back to shocked in consecutive shots. Also, her hair is over both shoulders in each of the "shocked" shots but over one shoulder in the "annoyed" shot. (00:24:30)

Jeff Swanson

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)

Driving is the Only Way to Fly - S1-E26

Visible crew/equipment: As Harold and Samantha drive away from the traffic jam, part of the camera rig is reflected in the side window of the car. (00:16:00)

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

Visible crew/equipment: As Samantha helps Aunt Clara out of the closet, as Samantha says, "Don't go 'way!" the boom mike's shadow becomes momentarily visible at the top of the screen. (00:02:00)

Jeff Swanson

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)

Jeff Swanson

Endora Moves in For a Spell - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: When Samantha takes Tabatha from Uncle Arthur's arms after a walk, the baby is wearing a yellow sweater, but it is gone before Samantha puts her down in her playpen. (00:08:10)


School Days, School Daze - S8-E23

Continuity mistake: After the teacher writes the equation on the board for Tabitha to solve, it keeps changing in appearance; the small loop at the bottom of the 3 comes and goes depending on the shot. (00:06:45)
