Wyatt Earp Rides Again - S6-E20

Continuity mistake: After Opie tells Andy that he knows he'll win at high noon, it cuts to Warren in front of Floyd's shop (with its furniture conspicuously missing), but later when Andy walks over to Floyd's shop its facade has changed. Note differences such as window structure, and the name "Floyd's Barber Shop" painted on the window which wasn't in the earlier shot. (00:18:05 - 00:24:15)

Girl-Shy - S6-E15

Visible crew/equipment: After Andy agrees with Helen to suggest a blind-date for Warren, when it cuts to Warren walking into the courthouse, we can see set lighting and equipment behind the door instead of the usual painted backdrop. (00:01:55)

Man in the Middle - S5-E7

Continuity mistake: When Barney, Thelma Lou, and Andy are driving to Andy's blind date they're all in the squad car. When they're parked in front of Helen's house in the closeup shots the light mounted on the roof has vanished, the glass windshield's gone, the car's interior differs, etc., and then it changes back. The roof is black, then white, as well.

Barney's Bloodhound - S5-E6

Continuity mistake: Barney tries showing Andy what the "part bloodhound" dog can do for the manhunt so Barney blows a dog whistle, and in the closeups of the growling dog the rope that was tied to his collar is suddenly lying on the floor, but it's back on his collar in the following shot.

Barney and the Governor - S3-E15

Deliberate mistake: In the closeup of the license plate on the governor's car, the words over and under the plate number are deliberately taped to be unrecognizable. The original words are "drive safely" and "North Carolina."

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.

Aunt Bee the Warden - S2-E23

Continuity mistake: When Otis begins his 24 hour sentence at Andy's house by staying in the guest room, Otis is wearing suspenders (braces) that are sewn together in the back in an X-shape, but when Otis leaves the guest room he's wearing entirely different style suspenders attached to his trousers.

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.

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.

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)
