The Dick Van Dyke Show

The Meershatz Pipe - S1-E10

Visible crew/equipment: While Rob is sick in bed he's just about to grab the phone near the end of this episode you can see a big shadow of a giant camera in between the back of the TV set and a stage light behind the camera. (00:21:22)

It May Look Like a Walnut! - S2-E20

Character mistake: Rob is having a nightmare, part of which involves the disappearance of his thumbs. When he finds Laura at home, the script calls for him to say, "I want you to help me get my thumbs back," but he actually says, "I want you to help me get my thumb backs." His thumbs are also still there but hidden (you can see a portion of them in one frame of the episode).
