I Love Lucy

First Stop - S4-E14

Continuity mistake: In this episode, Fred and Ethel claim that the bed they are sleeping in is just like the one they have been sleeping on for years. It is double bed with a big sag in the middle. However in an earlier episode "Vacation from Marriage" they show Lucy and Ethel in the the Mertz's bedroom and they have twin beds.


First Stop - S4-E14

Continuity mistake: When Ricky stops the car and backs up trying to locate Aunt Sally's, Lucy gets out of the car wearing a coat and a pantsuit underneath, but in the exterior shot she's wearing a skirt set when she walks over to the shed to read the sign. (00:03:50)

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)
