Snow White and the Seven Bradys - S5-E3

Audio problem: When the kids are painting a cardboard tree for the play, they ask their dad what he thinks of it. He then says "you better ask the two poodles next door." As he walks away he seems to almost trip/fall over something. Then the mom is heard laughing, even though she's not in the scene.

The Hustler - S5-E21

Revealing mistake: When Mike's boss, his wife and two other guests arrive at the house for a night of pool, the four guests are greeted at the front door, enter the brick entry foyer, and descend the steps into the living room. As the camera pans to capture the guests entering the living room, the obviously unfinished and unbricked end of the entry platform can be seen in the shot.

Quarterback Sneak - S5-E9

Other mistake: When the boys are playing football in the backyard, watch Greg's right foot - at one point he slips on the Astroturf lawn, causing it to wrinkle and exposing a seam on the "grass" lawn.

The Cincinnati Kids - S5-E11

Top Secret - S5-E19

Revealing mistake: Bobby and Oliver are building a house of cards on a small platform sitting on the table when all of a sudden the house of cards collapses. The reason: the platform moves by itself. Clearly it was manipulated off-screen somehow.

Miss Popularity - S5-E13

Audio problem: Listen to the sounds as the family eats dinner; the same sound sequences keep playing. For example, one sequence of three quick taps of silverware on plates plays several times, followed by another sound that is difficult to identify.

Kelly's Kids - S5-E14

Continuity mistake: Ken Berry and Brooke Bundy are seated at least a couple of feet from each other in the wide shots, but are right beside each other (arms touching) in the close-ups.

The Hustler - S5-E21

Audio problem: Bobby is lining up a pool shot. There's a cut to Cindy, and as she says her line, the sound of pool balls being hit is heard. But when the pool table is shown again in the next shot, none of the balls have moved. Also the pool table moves from outside to inside. Lots of mistakes with the balls on the table throughout the game.

Snow White and the Seven Bradys - S5-E3

Continuity mistake: When Mike rides up on stage he points to the damsel in distress with his right arm extended, but in the closeup it's his left arm extended.

Getting Greg's Goat - S5-E6

Continuity mistake: During the goat in the master bedroom scene, the flowers on Carol's side of the bed change during the scene. At first there is a pink flower to the right of a white flower, and then it changes to white flower on right of the pink one. In addition, the whole bouquet looks slightly different in different shots.

Never Too Young - S5-E4

Visible crew/equipment: When they're all practicing the Charleston, while Bobby's watching from the stairs, everyone is shown dancing from different angles, and in the low angle shots facing the kitchen the top of the kitchen set is visible, particularly when Carol twirls her necklace.
