Continuity mistake: After Frankie pays for the chewing tobacco in the drugstore, in the next closeup of Ellie the cigar box on the shelf behind her has black lines scribbled over all its identifying brand names (which is Van Dyck 43's), but when Frankie walks out the door, in Ellie's next semi-closeup that cigar box is unmarked again.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: While Andy and Barney are trying to sell the cannon, when they're talking to the shop owner who's seated in the rocking chair we can see the area between the squad car and storefront, with various items for sale, but in the next shot the covered cannon has suddenly appeared - and it's tall enough to have been in view in the previous shot had it actually have been there.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: While everyone's waiting for Otis to arrive at the plaque presentation in Mayor Pike's office, after Andy admits to the mayor that he asked the real Otis to show up, it cuts to the mayor walking behind his desk, and we can see the chalk T-mark on the floor where Mrs. Bixby stands.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: After Andy talks to George's father on the phone, he gets up and stands near the fireplace while explaining to Opie why he broke his promise and called George's father, and when Opie's on the couch asking if he can run off sometime, we can see the white tape mark on the rug where Andy was standing moments ago.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: When Rogers shows Andy the statistical chart and they get a call about the domestic violence, the two chalk lines (for feet position) can be seen on the floor below the bulletin board to its left, which is precisely where both Rogers and Barney have stood at different times during this scene.Super Grover
Revealing mistake: While Goober is up in the tree with the fake owl, when Andy and the Darlings leave the house they are standing on the porch, and after seeing the 'second omen' the Darlings leave the porch and head to their pickup truck, but what's funny is that we can see their reflections in the window behind Andy as they all walk off camera, turn around and just stand there, and we can still see those actors' reflections in the shots facing Andy and Aunt Bee even as the Darlings supposedly drive off.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: While Barney's trying to instruct the new deputy candidates, when he throws a tomato to Otis it splatters on his shirt, and a few things keep changing depending on the angle of the shot - the amount of tomato goo increases/changes position; the suspender's sliding adjuster changes height; the deputy badge changes position.Super Grover
Revealing mistake: When Clara and Aunt Bee are talking in the kitchen, in the closeups facing Aunt Bee we see the counter, the cabinet, and the wall, but what we don't see are the curtains, the window, or the windowsill, which all should be on that wall. The fake window wasn't placed on the set wall for Bee's closeup.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: While waiting for Barney to show up at the surprise party, Opie looks out the window and spots Barney, then when Aunt Bee and Thelma Lou take their places we can see both actors' marks on the floor - the chalk T-mark and the curved chalk mark.Super Grover
