Revealing mistake: While Andy, Aunt Bee, and Opie are at the Hollywood studio watching a scene being filmed, when Andy mistakenly stands up and interrupts the filming we can see the wall and shelves behind the director, and it should look familiar because it's the wall and shelves from Floyd's shop in Mayberry.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: At the start of the last scene, when Andy and Rogers walk out of the courthouse the reflection of a crew member is visible on the surface of the car, and as Rogers drives away we can see the reflection of the camera dolly on the car, and also the shadow of the boom mic on the ground.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: After Opie tells Ellie everything that Andy told Aunt Bee, Ellie tells Opie that she's on the trail of a baboon, and when it cuts to the next shot of Ellie coming down the stairs we can see the chalk T-mark on the floor where she stands.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: While Aunt Bee and the party guests are gathered in the parlor, when Gomer hoots like an owl in the shot facing him note Floyd's eyeglasses - black with thick straight temples, but in the shot from behind Gomer and all following shots Floyd's wearing different eyeglasses - lighter color with curved tips.Super Grover
Revealing mistake: After Andy and Opie choose between chicken and pot roast using a nickle, when Opie gives the nickle back to Andy the window over the sink is missing - the fake window wasn't put up on the set wall for this shot, but when the food burns the window and curtains are up there as usual.Super Grover
Revealing mistake: At the end, in the shots of the kids dancing in class, the width of the wall between the shelf/coat hooks and the perpendicular wall with the door has bizarrely increased by 1-2 feet, but that extra width is gone in previous and following shots. Presumably they needed extra space for all the kids to dance so they moved that left wall.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: While Jess is up in the tree, the new mayor is attacked so he also starts climbing up the tree, then in the shot of the bear rushing toward the camera we can see the animal trainer who's behind the tree, as he releases the bear. (00:23:00)Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: While Andy and Barney are standing beside Bobby Fleet's vehicle, Andy mentions that it's too bad they're all not staying overnight so they could hear Jim play, and when it cuts to the next shot the reflection of the overhead boom pole and mic can be seen moving on the surface of the vehicle.Super Grover
Deliberate mistake: After Barney buys the car from Mrs. Lesh, he and Andy are standing at the steps as he tells her not to look back at the car, and the next shot of Andy and Barney at the front door is the same shot from a few moments prior, but it's been flipped so they would be looking in the opposite direction. (00:09:30)Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: When Clara and Opie first sit down at the piano to begin the piano lesson, note there's nothing on the floor behind them. Then that shot cuts to the end of the lesson as the camera pulls back for a wideshot, and now there are two tape marks on the floor near the door in the area where Opie and Aunt Bee will be standing shortly. (00:04:15)Super Grover
