Lucy Learns to Drive - S4-E12

Visible crew/equipment: When Ethel's on the stoop in front of the building waiting for Lucy and Ricky, right before Ethel asks Ricky about Lucy's driving lesson, just as Ricky drives up we can see cables moving in front of the new Pontiac pulling the car. Then, when Ethel crashes the new Pontiac into the old car, the jiggling cables can be seen again in front of the new car. Lastly, when Lucy finally starts the old car's engine, now a moving cable can be seen in front of the old car as well. (00:09:50)

Lucy Learns to Drive - S4-E12

Visible crew/equipment: When Lucy's sitting on the piano looking out the window at their new car, just as Ricky walks into the living room we can see the shadow of the mic equipment moving overhead, likely adjusting to the actor's position. (00:07:10)

The Séance - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: After Lucy tells Mr. Merriweather that he's invited to the seance, when it cuts to Lucy unfolding the card table legs, note the couch behind her with one normal seat cushion on the left, but in the next wideshot there's an additional shorter cushion under the normal cushion. The small towel also repositions itself neatly on the couch. (00:11:55)
