Barney's First Car - S3-E27

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.

High Noon in Mayberry - S3-E17

Deliberate mistake: While Luke and Andy are in the house, Barney, Gomer, and Otis are hiding on the porch, and Barney has the idea to turn off the lights in the house, so he goes to the circuit box located beside the windows on the front porch and switches the lights off. The problem is that this circuit box is located on the porch only for this episode as a plot point.

Barney and the Governor - S3-E15

Deliberate mistake: In the closeup of the license plate on the governor's car, the words over and under the plate number are deliberately taped to be unrecognizable. The original words are "drive safely" and "North Carolina."

Show generally

Deliberate mistake: During scenes at Walker's Drugstore there are many magazines by the wall near the door, which have tape/paint hiding part or all of their cover titles. Examples are: all the Sports Illustrated have tape across the word "Illustrated", the House and Garden has its "House &" covered, and Time magazine's entire title is blacked out.

Andy: Clara, sometimes a parent can't see what he should do, and sometimes it takes a person from the outside to show him. And I'd like to thank you.
Clara: Groovy.

Mistakes

Andy reads the inside cover of Barney's old schoolbook which has Barney's name "Bernard P. Fife" written out many times in it, but in two previous episodes Barney's middle name is either Oliver or Milton.
