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.

Serena's Richcraft - S8-E17

Revealing mistake: Darrin casts a shadow revealing painted sky background when he goes out to pay cab. Later, when he goes out to get in helicopter the neighborhood is not the neighborhood we normally see outside the Stevens' house. There's an Amoco gas station across the street.

Samantha is Earthbound - S8-E16

Revealing mistake: When Samantha, Darrin and Dr. Bombay are in the living room and walk as a group towards the television, you can see the crease in the carpet where the floor is going to collapse.

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.

Toys in Babeland - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: In Tabitha's room in an early scene, Tabitha for some reason is in her play pen in her bedroom rather than her crib as usual. Later, the crib is back when Darrin is securing her toys in the locked toy chest.

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.

Samantha's Wedding Present - S5-E1

Other mistake: When Darrin is first shrunk we see that his clothes are unaffected by Endora's spell (they don't shrink). So, when he was popped back to normal heights, his clothes shouldn't be affected, and he would burst out of them. We already know his suit changed colors.

Samantha's Witchcraft Blows a Fuse - S8-E25

Other mistake: When the police pull up outside the Stephens' home, it is a set shot with fake background. The "road" doesn't match the outside of Stephens' neighborhood shown throughout the series with the Kravitz house across the street (and not a pine tree forest as shown here).

That Was My Wife - S1-E31

Continuity mistake: Louise and Larry have been married 10 years. When Louise gets pregnant in Season 1 ep 12 she says she has been married for 14 years. So this would be their 16th anniversary.

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

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: 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.
