Opie's Job - S6-E1

Other mistake: In the scenes outside the grocery store with Mr. Doakes, there are a couple dozen cereal boxes in the display windows - Post Grape Nuts, Post Grape Nuts Flakes, Post Alpha Bits, etc., and all the boxes have part of their names covered, such as "Rap Ut." It's pretty funny considering that TAGS cast did commercials for Post Grape Nuts, and other Post foods.

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. (00:17:20)

Convicts-at-Large - S3-E11

Continuity mistake: After Andy and Floyd talk outside the grocery Floyd gets into his car with the convict, and when they drive away we see all the food ads taped to both of the store windows while Andy's on the sidewalk, but when it cuts to Andy's closeups the taped ads have changed.

Goober's Replacement - S6-E28

Aunt Bee's Restaurant - S7-E21

Continuity mistake: While Jack is trying to help Aunt Bee understand her fear, in a few of the closeups of Aunt Bee and Andy (seated on the couch) note the fruit bowl has moved and the candlesticks have vanished from the server, the large figurine on the left side of the hutch has vanished, and the flowers from the table have also disappeared. Then everything is back in their place. (00:21:10)

Malcolm at the Crossroads - S6-E3

Continuity mistake: At the start, Andy walks down the street and stops at the church steps to watch Ernest T. being a crossing guard, but when it cuts to the shot of Ernest T. we see the church steps yet Andy's gone, then when it cuts back to Andy he's still standing by the church steps.

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)

Aunt Bee on TV - S6-E10

Continuity mistake: After Clara cancels lunch with Aunt Bee, when Bee walks over to the table there are two candle holders on the server and a large picture surrounded by four small pictures hanging over the server. However, when Opie runs to the table, the left candle holder and bottom left small picture are both gone in his closeups. (00:19:40)

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. (00:16:40)

The Mayberry Band - S3-E8

Visible crew/equipment: While the fake band members begin to practice before the mayor shows up, in Andy's closeup right before he tries to stop Phil's flamboyant playing, the reflection of filming equipment is visible on the surface of Andy's tuba.

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.
