Revealing mistake: When Lucy and Ethel go down to the jail house to see Rickey and Fred, there is a scene where Lucy says "I wonder how he (Rickey) kisses" and then she kisses him, then Ethel says the same thing about Fred and leans in for a kiss. Problem is she obviously doesn't get anywhere near his lips to touch them for a kiss, yet makes the kissing sound, turns around and says "hmmm" as if the "kiss" wasn't all that . Of course we all know those two characters did not get along on set anyways .movielover1
Continuity mistake: In the episodes where Lucy and Ricky are Getting Ready to move to the country, there are shots in the Ricardos' bedroom that shows a wall on the right hand side of the room. In previous episodes, there was a window where the wall appears during the later 'moving to Connecticut' episodes.Bobby1956
Deliberate mistake: Lucy and Ethel try and hide the new furniture in the kitchen so Ricky won't find out about it. This in turn forces Lucy to run through the Mertz's apartment to retrieve items from her own kitchen when Ricky wants them. This is supposedly done because the furniture blocks the doorway and is wedged in place thus preventing them from using the door. However it is quite clear that there is a lot of room for the furniture to be pushed into the kitchen and not block the door. They say it is wedged on the sink but there is a lot of room on the other side by the cupboards, along the back wall.luke f
Other mistake: The Ricardos and Mertzes are trapped inside an abandoned cabin after it is buried by an an avalanche. They are rescued by an oom-pah band playing "La Cucaracha." When the band members enter the cabin, their clothes and shoes are completely dry, and they don't track in any snow or water. Then when the Ricardos and Mertzes follow them out of the cabin, they leave their backpacks behind.
Continuity mistake: When Ricky is angry toward Lucy that Little Ricky's pet dog Fred has not learned to be obedient he threatens to return Fred to the dog pound where he says the Ricardos originally got him. However, in episode "6-12", Little Ricky Gets A Dog" Little Ricky admits to Lucy that he got Fred from one of his playmates whose dog had puppies.ralz8163
Revealing mistake: In the scene in the Ricardo's kitchen, after Fred enters through the rear entrance the door is left open. Through the doorway one can see at a certain point, not just the NYC real estate in the distance but apparently a blown-up photograph of what "appears" to be a man and woman sitting at a small table in a cafe. However, in a subsequent episode of the same view through the rear door it appears that the exact same background photo shot may actually be, not a man and woman but features on the outside of a building, such as one or more windows.ralz8163
Other mistake: When the Ricardos and Mertzes arrive the first time at One Oak Cabins and Cafe the full moon is amid the tops of the trees. When they arrive the second time the full moon is in exactly the same location amid the tree tops as the first time they arrived. Fortunately, hours later when they make their sneaky escape from the cabin and return to their car the moon is no longer in view.
Continuity mistake: As Lucy gets up from her airplane seat holding the big hunk of cheese wrapped in a blanket she is masking as a baby, it bends in half as if it were already cut. This is the scene before she sneaks off to the kitchen to cut it apart. In prior scenes, the cheese is intact and solid. (00:17:10)Paco386
Character mistake: When Ricky sits down to calculate by hand how much Lucy and Ethel have spent on supplies to make and sell their salad dressing, he adds $7.21 for the groceries, $1.20 for the jars, and 10 cents for the labels. He says his total is $8.31. He miscalculated; the correct total is $8.51. Ironically, his profit calculation is correct at 3 cents a jar. (00:15:10)Paco386
