Mr. Dingle, the Strong - S2-E19

Factual error: Though this episode is set in then-present-day 1961, the fistful of prop money the bartender is holding is not contemporary. It appears to be copies of 1880s U.S. Currency, though it's been reproduced as smaller, 20th Century sized bills rather than the larger ones that were standard in the 1800s. All in all, not something his bar patrons would likely be paying the bartender with in the 1960s.

A Most Unusual Camera - S2-E10

Revealing mistake: The crooks in this episode appear to have obtained the same pile of funny money that the Castles received in "Man in the Bottle." The bills don't even vaguely resemble any real U.S. currency.

The Lateness of the Hour - S2-E8

King Nine Will Not Return - S2-E1

A Thing About Machines - S2-E4

Night of the Meek - S2-E11

Audio problem: Throughout Corwin's scene with the two children on the street, and through Rod Serling's subsequent introduction to the episode, you can hear the loud hiss of fan blowers used to waft artificial snow onto the set.

The Man in the Bottle - S2-E2

Revealing mistake: Mr. & Mrs. Castle wish for a million dollars in 5 and 10 dollar bills. But the bills they receive all have the same pattern printed on both sides, a pattern which which doesn't resemble any real US currency. There's also not nearly enough of the bills to total a million dollars.

Mr. Dingle, the Strong - S2-E19

Revealing mistake: Dingle lifts the bar bully over his head and twirls him around. But the dummy used to achieve this effect has a distinctly lifeless, plastic face, and more than once, the wires suspending it are visible.

Dust - S2-E12

Revealing mistake: The sky behind the hanging scene at the end has several prominent wrinkles in it, betraying the fact that it's not a sky, but a cloth backdrop. In some shots, you can also see shadows on the cloth.

Static - S2-E20

Revealing mistake: In the boarding house hallway, Ed yanks the pay phone's receiver off the hook - and the entire wall to which the phone is attached wobbles.

The Man in the Bottle - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: When the bottle falls on the shop floor, it changes positions between the time it settles and the moment it begins to smoke.

The Odyssey of Flight 33 - S2-E18

Continuity mistake: When the plane first descends, the headphones that the radio controller is wearing keep moving from his neck to head.

Hamster

The Invaders - S2-E15

Continuity mistake: The flying saucer the old woman hacks to pieces with an axe is noticeably not the same one that lands in her attic in the beginning. A cruder version was built for the axing scene because the model used was a studio keepsake - the original spaceship from the classic sf film "Forbidden Planet."
