Crime-Free Mayberry - S2-E7

Visible crew/equipment: When 'FBI Agent' Jenkins congratulates Andy and Barney on behalf of J. Edgar Hoover they're all standing near the door, but when it cuts to Jenkins turning around and they all walk over to the desk, we can see the two curved chalk lines on the floor where Jenkins' feet were positioned, as well as the curved chalk marks on the upper step where the mayor was standing.

Quiet Sam - S1-E29

Visible crew/equipment: When Barney and Floyd are spying on Sam while he's getting groceries, we can see both of the grocery store's windows and its clear glass, but when Sam drives off the left display window has been covered with a dulling spray resulting in a matte surface, to prevent the camera and crew's reflections.

Opie's First Love - S8-E1

Continuity mistake: When Opie and Arnold rush into the house and tell Andy and Aunt Bee about the party, in the shots facing the boys we can see the reflection in the mirror behind them, and there's a lamp atop the credenza, but in the shots facing Andy and Aunt Bee that lamp doesn't exist.

The Ball Game - S7-E4

Other mistake: Helen is sitting on the first base side, there is a play at the plate and Opie is called out at the plate. Near the end of the show, Helen has a picture she took of the play and it show Opie to be safe. The picture angle is taken almost directly from home plate and at a low angle. The backstop is also blocked half the way up. She would have had to be on the field behind home plate for such a picture. It's also very close up but the camera she is using doesn't have any zoom feature.

Suggested correction: The key on the wall is the other key that Virgil polished. It is polished like the other one. Virgil polished two keys.

A Warning from Warren - S6-E6

Visible crew/equipment: After Goober has deliberately removed the distributor cap from Andy's squad car, when Andy slams the hood shut the reflection of the filming crew can be seen in Floyd's window. Then when Andy and Helen drive away in Goober's truck, the microphone pops up into view at the bottom of the screen.

Andy and Opie's Pal - S4-E14

Character mistake: Barney complains about Andy escorting the Apricot Queen around Mayberry many years prior. Barney had hoped to be her escort. He remembers the date, telling Andy it was "June 23, 1952, a Saturday afternoon." June 23, 1952, was a Monday.

My Fair Ernest T. Bass - S4-E17

Other mistake: Barney says, "I brought the car to drive you over to Mrs. Wiley's," but later when Andy, Barney, Ernest T., and Ramona leave Mrs. Wiley's we see that they're at the house that's actually next door to Andy - though to hide this fact there's a station wagon in the driveway, and they've removed the trellis beside the door.
