The Andy Griffith Show

Aunt Bee Learns to Drive - S6-E21

Other mistake: Aunt Bee says that Andy had to drive her to Clara's and Andy says it's not a bother, but Clara has always lived right next door.

Ellise Ann Lemon

The Perfect Female - S2-E8

Character mistake: In the beginning where Karen is introduced to Andy and Barney in the coffee shop, her name is Karen Worth, then at the last where she is called as winner of the Skeet Shoot her name changes to Karen Moore.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: She is introduced as "Karen Moore". Thelma Lou's pronunciation is a bit off (what she says sounds like 'moor', as in an English moor), but she says "Moore."

Jason Hoffman

Opie's Group - S8-E9

Visible crew/equipment: While Opie and his band are playing at the party there are shots of the kids dancing, and in the shot of a girl with blonde hair wearing a blue dress, the camera angle is low and we can see the top of the set. (00:10:25)

Tape Recorder - S8-E8

Continuity mistake: At the end, when Aunt Bee serves dessert her spoon and napkin are on the table, but in the next closeup of just Andy and Opie her spoon and napkin have vanished, then when Bee's seated she removes her napkin and her own dessert and spoon should still be on the table, but in the closeups of Andy and Opie they're not.

Howard's Main Event - S8-E6

Visible crew/equipment: After the shot of Milly holding hands with Howard (holding a picnic basket), when it cuts to Goober sitting in front of the courthouse the camera angle is low, so the wood framework and lighting equipment at the top of the courthouse set can be seen just as Andy walks over to Goober. (00:05:30)

A Trip to Mexico - S8-E3

Other mistake: During the scenes at Elmo's shop, where Aunt Bee's pictures are developed, it's obvious that this is actually Emmett's Fix-It Shop. We can see the window of the shop next door through Elmo's doorway, and recognize it as the store next door to Emmett's shop which has "Furniture, New and Used" on its front window.

A Trip to Mexico - S8-E3

Visible crew/equipment: After Andy hatches the plan to have Aunt Bee and her friends pick up their photos at the same time, in the following shot just as Andy walks into the shop, the shadow of the boom mic can be seen moving beside the doorway, at the top left side of the screen.

A Trip to Mexico - S8-E3

Visible crew/equipment: After Aunt Bee's flight lands, when it cuts to the hotel lobby there's rug on the floor extending from the front desk to the stairs, but in the next shot as Aunt Bee and her friends walk into the lobby that rug is gone (this doesn't refer to the small rug behind them). Also note the tape mark on the floor where the bellhop stops the luggage trolley.

A Trip to Mexico - S8-E3

Visible crew/equipment: When everyone is at the airport before the flight some chalk T-marks can be seen on the floor, such as the one between Andy and Helen when Andy takes the picture of Aunt Bee and her friends. (00:08:45)

Goober's Contest - S7-E30

Other mistake: Twice during the episode the actor who plays Floyd is replaced by his body double. The first time is when Floyd's driving to and away from Wally's station in the earlier scene, and the second is later, when Aunt Bee leaves Floyd's shop and we see Floyd stand up through the window.

Goober's Contest - S7-E30

Other mistake: Right before Aunt Bee wins the five dollar prize at Wally's station she talks about how she's never won anything, not even the church raffle, and right after she wins she excitedly waves the five dollar bill and says, "I've never won anything before in my life!" However, in season 6 episode "Aunt Bee on TV" the man from the IRS stated that Aunt Bee had won $4,850 worth of prizes on the game show, and even though she sold most of her prizes she kept two of them. So her statement makes no sense even for Aunt Bee.

Goober's Contest - S7-E30

Visible crew/equipment: When Aunt Bee drives her car up to the gas pump at Wally's station and then wins the five dollars, the reflection of crew and filming equipment can be seen on the surface of her car. Also, note that the chrome trim around the windshield is covered with black tape, presumably to prevent reflection. Additionally, during all the scenes at Wally's station, the back end of one of the quonset huts from the "Gomer Pyle, USMC" set can be seen either at the left side of the screen or in the background.

Gomer the House Guest - S4-E6

Continuity mistake: When Opie shows Andy his arm with the chore list written on it, Andy uses his right hand to hold up Opie's arm, but in the closeup it's Andy's left hand holding up Opie's arm. (00:03:50)

Gomer the House Guest - S4-E6

Continuity mistake: At the start, when Andy stops at Wally's station Gomer is telling Jason about his Trout bait, then someone pulls up behind Jason's car and they're bumper to bumper in the wideshot, but in the exterior shot facing Jason there's no car behind him, but that car is back again before he pulls away.

The Sermon for Today - S4-E4

Visible crew/equipment: After Barney and Andy talk about the concert poster, when Gomer shows up and they talk about Goober, the shadow of the boom arm and mic can be seen moving around on the ground at the lower left side of the screen. (00:14:30)

The Sermon for Today - S4-E4

Visible crew/equipment: While Aunt Bee, Andy, Barney, and Gomer are on the porch talking about the band, just as Andy says, "We're talking about gettin' up a band concert by tonight," the chalk T-mark can be seen on the floor by Andy's feet. (00:12:25)

The Statue - S7-E23

Audio problem: When Aunt Bee is introduced at the start of the ceremony, in the first wideshot as she begins her speech we hear her say, "Friends, neighbors, and fellow citizens of Mayberry" but it's not in sync with her mouth movements. (00:18:45)

Barney's First Car - S3-E27

Visible crew/equipment: While Andy and Barney are hiding behind the car, when Myrt Lesh hits Jake in the stomach with her umbrella, we can see two curved chalk actor's marks and two chalk T-marks on the floor. (00:22:10)

The Statue - S7-E23

Other mistake: At the end of the ceremony, when Aunt Bee finally unveils the life-size statue of Seth Taylor the prop jiggles (presumably it's plastic) back and forth on the base, even though we know it's carved out of a block of granite (stated by Howard earlier in the episode) by a stonemason. (00:05:00 - 00:22:55)

The Statue - S7-E23

Continuity mistake: At the end, when Aunt Bee concludes the reading of the minutes and mentions the improvement fund, she's holding the blue folder up in her hands with its notepapers inside, but in the next shot one of the notepapers is suddenly flipped over the top of the folder. (00:23:45)
