The Dick Van Dyke Show

Show generally

Deliberate mistake: While Rob is on his honeymoon, as well as 3 day pass, things like that, Rob still wears his army outfit. Yet in real life us real humans wouldn't be wearing the same clothes every time we were out. We would go home and change.

Deliberate mistake: Rob, Sally and Buddy's "old office" is exactly the same shape as Robs basement (except for the door in the center of the back wall. Instead of going upstairs it's all on 1 level. There's a door to the right which goes into a random room which we never get to see inside). (00:10:38)

Suggested correction: Since you listed multiple differences, it's obviously not "exactly the same." Filmmakers not building every set and prop from scratch is not a mistake. Modifying and reusing old sets is just an economic reality of production. If anything this should be under trivia.
