Andy's Old Girlfriend - S7-E20

Other mistake: At the cabin, when Andy and Alice are fixing breakfast at the kitchen counter, note the cereal box's brand name is covered (presumably painted), which is still recognizable as "Post Toasties." (Andy Griffith even did commercials for this specific cereal).

A Visit to Barney Fife - S7-E18

Other mistake: After Andy and Barney hear on the radio that another supermarket has been robbed they head over there, and in the shots at the supermarket note that many of the products on the shelves have their brand names covered with tape or scribbled over. For example, boxes of "Mrs. Cubbison's" stuffing/dressing and "Sunshine Cheez-It" are covered with tape.

Mind Over Matter - S7-E7

Visible crew/equipment: After the squad car is hit from behind Andy rushes over to Goober, and a T-mark (it's a bit darker than the color of the dirt road) becomes visible on the ground (just as the woman gets out of her car) at the bottom of the screen, right behind Andy's feet.

The Barbershop Quartet - S7-E3

Other mistake: The end credits list actor Burt Mustin as playing a character named "Jud", but while Andy and the rest are waiting for Howard to show up for practice, Andy, Wally, and Aunt Bee all use Burt Mustin's real name "Burt" instead of his character's name, "Jud." Then during the rest of the episode Andy still calls him "Burt" a few more times.

The Lodge - S7-E2

Other mistake: The end credits list actor Burt Mustin as playing a character named "Jud", but after Howard's introduction to everyone in the lodge, when Andy and Howard are saying goodbye to all the members, Andy says, "See ya, Burt" to actor Burt Mustin. Then at the start of the voting scene even the subtitles read "Burt" instead of "Jud."

Goober's Replacement - S6-E28

Continuity mistake: When Andy and Floyd stop by Wally's station, Flora's wearing a striped uniform shirt and there are a bunch of cars lined up waiting for service. Then later, when Goober gets back from vacation and shows up at the station, in the first shot of the station Flora's wearing the striped shirt and all the cars waiting for service are the same as the earlier shot, but in the closeups Flora's now wearing a solid color uniform shirt.

Continuity mistake: While Andy and the townsfolk are at the courthouse during the storm, when the gypsies walk in the two men are wearing wet rain ponchos and the woman is wearing a striped serape, but then she's wearing a wet raincoat, and it switches yet again in following shots.

Continuity mistake: At the start of the episode, while Barney's in Andy's kitchen he's wearing a shirt with large distinctive designs, but when he and Andy walk into the courthouse Barney's shirt has completely different designs (though it's the same type of shirt).

Clara: Groovy.
