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 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.

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.

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)

A Most Unusual Wood Nymph - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: When Samantha goes back to the 15th century, Geri O'Toole is wearing a yellow dress. When Samantha pops back home, Darrin is wearing Thea Ames hit but Geri is wearing a pink dress. It all happened the same afternoon/evening. Geo should still be wearing the same yellow dress.

A Most Unusual Wood Nymph - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: When Samantha gets up off the couch to confront the wood nymph, the pillow on the couch, on the left side of the screen, is laying flat. When they move back in front of the couch when Endora arrives, the pillow is standing up against the armrest.

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.


My Friend Ben - S3-E13

Other mistake: When Samantha and Clara "pop" into town searching for Ben, they appear on the sidewalk a few feet in front of others, who don't react to their sudden, magical, appearance.

Samantha for the Defense - S3-E14

Factual error: Benjamin Franklin is portrayed as a gentleman in this episode and the previous My Friend Ben episode. In this episode he dates Aunt Clara at the end. In reality, Benjamin Franklin was a cad, a womanizer and a playboy. He was a marvellous man - a genius - but treated women terribly refusing to marry his common law wife, abandoning her for years while he played with other women in Europe... and treated his daughter like a second class citizen.

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.

Rebecca Venter

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.

Rebecca Venter

Samantha: Darling, I've been trying for weeks to give this house a thorough cleaning. These carpets are filthy.
Darrin Stephens: How can you worry about dirt on the rugs when we're about to see the surface of the moon?
Samantha: The moon could use a vacuuming too. All that dust... yych.

Samantha Fights City Hall - S5-E9

Trivia: Because Erin Murphy, who played Tabitha, was ill, her fraternal twin sister Diane took her place in this episode. By this time, Erin and Diane didn't resemble each other as much as they once did, and it was obvious to regular viewers of the show that it wasn't the Tabitha they were used to seeing. The producers received several letters asking "Who was that?"

Show generally

Question: Is there some reason why Samantha wears the same exact "Heart Pendant Necklace" in every single episode? It seems odd that she only has one necklace all the time.

Answer: The original diamond and white gold heart necklace was given to Elizabeth Montgomery by her then real-life husband, William Asher, who also directed the show. She wore it in nearly every early episode. When the necklace was lost or stolen about mid-way through the series, Montgomery had two replicas made from rhinestones. She wore either one of those for the rest of the show's run.
