The Clubmen - S2-E10

Other mistake: After Andy turns down the offer to join the club the two men leave, and when it cuts to them driving away we see the license plate number is "DC 269," the same as some other vehicles in previous episodes.

Stranger In Town - S1-E11

Visible crew/equipment: While Barney's in the barber chair, Floyd starts talking about how he'd tried living at the back of the barber shop, and when the shot faces Barney we can see the reflection of a crew member's legs moving around - the only ones in the shop are Barney, Floyd, and the two men seated by the corner.

Opie's Charity - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: When Andy and Mrs. Silby are walking into the courthouse, in the exterior shot of Andy opening the door he's wearing the baseball mitt on his left hand, but when it cuts to the interior shot Andy's opening the door with his left hand and the mitt has vanished.

Mayberry Goes Hollywood - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: When Andy's done showing Hollywood producer Mr. Harmon around town, he says, "Here we are, right back where we started, old oak tree," then mentions climbing that tree as a boy, and later says, "You're gonna cut down the oldest oak tree in the entire town?" But viewers have seen the entire area in front of the church (season 1 "Ellie for Council") and there isn't a large old oak tree. The fake tree was placed in this episode as a plot point between the producer and the townspeople.

Barney's Replacement - S2-E2

Other mistake: Notice the license plate of Rogers' car is "DC 269," which is the same plate number as Andy's squad in a few season 1 episodes such as "Ellie Comes To Town" and "A Feud Is A Feud."

Barney's Replacement - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: On the curb outside the courthouse there's a fire hydrant beside the pole, which not only changes its position on the sidewalk in different scenes, but it has also vanished at the end when Rogers drives away, as Barney crosses the street.

Barney's Replacement - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: While the squad's siren switch is stuck in the on position, Barney and Rogers get out of the car to open the hood, and suddenly there's a pencil sticking out of Barney's shirt pocket for Rogers to use to tap the condenser box, to stop the blaring siren.

Ellie Saves a Female - S1-E27

Continuity mistake: On Flint's farm there's a cow tied to the back fence, which can be seen in exterior shots throughout the episode - when Ellie, Andy, and Barney are there. After Flint tells Barney to get off his land, in the exterior shot when Barney walks into the barn we see that cow tied to the back fence, but next shot inside the barn we see that very same cow in the stall - note the black/white markings.

Ellie Saves a Female - S1-E27

Continuity mistake: While Barney's on the farm trying to get Frankie, twice he heads into the barn through the right-side entrance door within the tall sliding double barn doors (about 12 ft high), but when it cuts to the interior shots he's entering through the barn's left-side entrance door, plus the fact that it's not within huge double sliding doors. (This interior set is seen again in "Barney Gets His Man.").

Show generally

Continuity mistake: At the "Hen Party", Jeff Pruitt says hello to Thelma Lou and she states she is going to get coffee, then goes to the kitchen. However, when Jeff walks across the room and looks back, Thelma Lou is back in the same area. She never walked back from the kitchen.

Pam-I-am

Show generally

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.

The Darlings Are Coming - S3-E25

Revealing mistake: During the scene where the Darling's truck has overheated, Andy walks up from the back of the truck. As he comes into view you can see what appears to be a microphone cord hanging out from under his pants leg.

Floyd the Gay Deceiver - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: At the start, when Floyd and Andy walk into the barbershop, in the exterior shot Floyd's white barber jacket is on a hanger hanging from the coat tree that has a finial at the top of its pole, but in the next interior shot that jacket is hanging directly on the coat tree's hook, the hanger has vanished, and that finial has disappeared as well.
