The Andy Griffith Show

Class Reunion - S3-E19

Continuity mistake: In the closeup of Barney's yearbook picture his name is listed as "Bernard Milton Fife," and Andy even reads it aloud, but in the previous episode from season 1, "A Plaque for Mayberry" Andy says that Barney's middle name is Oliver.

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.

The Big House - S3-E32

Continuity mistake: When Andy walks in on Barney showing Gomer how to draw his gun, Gomer draws his gun out of the holster which sends it flying behind him, and in the closeup the bookcase glass shatters, but in the wideshot when they all turn to look the glass is still perfectly intact.

The Big House - S3-E32

Continuity mistake: When Gomer drops the gun from the roof it lands on the ground directly in front of Andy and Barney, who are standing on the sidewalk beside the courthouse, but the area where they're standing looks different between the overhead shots and closeups, and their shadows change as well. Additionally, the gun lands with its handle to the left, but in the wideshot the gun is lying the opposite way, with its handle to the right.

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.

The Mayberry Band - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: When the mayor finally arrives for the band's marching performance he parks his white car in front of the wood bench where he'll be sitting in a moment. After the fake band's performance, when the mayor tells Andy that the band can go to the band festival, in the shot of the real band members cheering while Andy pats the mayor on the back and also when the Fleet Band drives by, we can see the entire street in front of the mayor and his car has vanished.
