The Andy Griffith Show

Goober Goes to an Auto Show - S8-E22

Factual error: Goober and the Taylors stop and get gas in Raleigh before heading back to Mayberry. As they are waiting, a Coors Brewing Company truck is seen driving past the service station. Coors Beer was not sold east of the Mississippi River until the mid-1980s.

Factual error: When you walk into the courthouse the first jailhouse to the left has a window. But the courthouse is connected to another establishment on that side. A window would be impossible.

Goober Takes a Car Apart - S5-E17

Factual error: Halfway through the show, Goober takes the motor out of the car and they start it up in the Sheriff's office. If you look at the direction of the fan, it would be blowing the air forward instead of towards the rear of the engine. It would be fighting the air coming through the radiator instead of pulling it.

The Gypsies - S6-E23

Factual error: The gypsies manage to operate a shortwave radio without an antenna or AC power.

The Clubmen - S2-E10

Factual error: Andy and Barney have a dinner appointment at 8 pm in Raleigh. It is dark outside when they step out of the house. It is not possible to drive from Mayberry (which is Mt Airy or close to it) to Raleigh in less than 5 hours. More like 6 to 7. When they arrived at the club meeting the doors should have been locked and the place deserted.

Goober Takes a Car Apart - S5-E17

Factual error: How in the world did Goober lift that heavy motor out of the car?

Factual error: A town like Mayberry with a mayor and council would have its own police force, not just a sheriff.
