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)

Nobody's Perfect - S3-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When the deck of cards is floating up the steps you can see the shadow of the pole used to "float" the cards... look to the left on the wall and towards the ceiling.

The Trial and Error of Aunt Clara - S3-E21

Continuity mistake: When Samantha opens the door, you can see the 3 pictures by the door. The middle picture is straight. When the camera cuts to Samantha and Aunt Clara and returns to Larry at the door, the middle picture is crooked... a necessary plot point to distract Larry from the desk in the stair case.

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.


Witches and Warlocks are My Favorite Things - S3-E3

Other mistake: The exterior scene when Clara parachutes in is not the real outside we see throughout the show with neighbors including the Kravitz across the street and fewer trees...and no pine forest. Also, it's obvious Marion Lorne, who was about 80 at the time, was sitting on a swing like apparatus being lowered... understandably.

Ho Ho, the Clown - S3-E18

Continuity mistake: It's understandable with Tabitha being so young, but when she is on the couch and doll is zapped next to her, the scene editing is very choppy. Tabitha scoots about 8 inches to the right (center of couch) and is turned. It's very noticeable when looking at the green couch pillow beside/behind Tabitha.

Ho Ho, the Clown - S3-E18

Continuity mistake: The front door in the episode is white with no window at the top. The door is normally green with a half moon, frosted, window at the top. At the end when Ho Ho comes with Pony then Larry and the client show up the porch is also flatter and different.

The Trial and Error of Aunt Clara - S3-E21

Continuity mistake: When the coven is reading the case against Clara, the gable is lying in the middle of Judge Bean's Bench. The camera cuts to Darrin then returns to the Coven, who is still reading their case against Clara. The gable is suddenly on the wooden platform. There is no indication the gable had been used as the coven is still reading their case against Clara.

The Moment of Truth - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: When Aunt Clara is in the kitchen with Tabitha, when Tabitha knocks off her plate then the unicorn, there is nothing on her high chair tray. When Tabitha twitches the pot and spoon over, there's suddenly a Graham Cracker on her tray where the spoon lands.

The Moment of Truth - S3-E2

Revealing mistake: When Aunt Clara "parachutes" in the background is not the neighborhood background shown throughout series with Kravitz across the street...and no pine forest. It's obvious a stage background.

Samantha: Try to control your temper. Remember, "Peace on earth, goodwill to men" includes witches.

Show generally

Question: In one episode (not sure which one but it was in the Dick York era), Darrin was arguing with Samantha and said something like "Confiding in a woman is like broadcasting by Telstar." What exactly does that mean and what was Telstar?

Answer: Telstar was an early communications satellite system. Darrin, in a particularly sexist manner reflective of this era, is saying that telling a secret to a woman means it is guaranteed to be "broadcasted" to multiple people.
