The Wild Wild West

The Night of the Bubbling Death - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: The Constitution lies flat in the display case. After West cuts a circular piece of glass to remove the document, he takes it out and it is seen to be conveniently rolled up for ease of removal through the circle rather than flat.

The Night of the Bubbling Death - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: Once West crosses the acid bath, he leaves a small piece of rope hanging from the zip line. Later, when he meets Artie to recross over the acid bath, the rope has grown to about three feet in length. Artie was too far away (and did not have the equipment to cross) for him to change its length.

Continuity mistake: West's fingers are close together as he muzzles Vixen's mouth, but the close ups show his fingers spread apart.

The Night of the Firebrand - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: Outside shots show the wagon West is driving rocking violently back and forth as he escapes, but inside shots of Vixen unconscious in the back show a gentle rocking motion.

The Night of the Firebrand - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: West and Gordon are escaping in the wagon going through hilly and rocky terrain, but close up shots of the duo driving the wagon show clear sky, not towering background topography.

The Night of the Bubbling Death - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: Immediately after West's fight with Clint Cartwheel, Clint's hair is mussed. A quick shot back to both and Clint's hair is perfectly combed and groomed.

The Night of the Circus of Death - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: The draperies are fully engulfed in flames when the murderer runs through them and out onto the balcony. Cut to an exterior shot as he escapes, and the window dressings are perfectly intact with no sign of the fire. (00:03:10)

The Night of the Amnesiac - S3-E22

Continuity mistake: When amnesiac West emerges from between the buildings, it is dark outside, but when he encounters the cowboy assaulting the woman, it is now suddenly broad daylight.

The Night of the Avaricious Actuary - S4-E11

Continuity mistake: The letter from the Cyclops Insurance Company that Gordon pulls out of his pocket is folded, wrinkled, and well-worn. In the close up of the same letter West reads, the letter is white, pristine, and not wrinkled or folded.
