Season 5 generally

Other mistake: The opening credits for season 5 show June coming out of the front door with a pitcher of what looks like iced tea, and calling for Ward, Wally and Beaver who are all working outside. But the door opens by itself as she comes out, and then closes by itself behind her. If the entire family is outside, who opened and closed the door?

The Yard Birds - S5-E32

Continuity mistake: After Eddie and Lumpy show up to help The Beav and Wally load the lawn trash into Lumpy's car, Eddie places a lampshade and a woman's hat over a burlap bag of trash and jokes it's Lumpy's date: "Who says Lumpy can't get a girl?" Just then the camera cuts over to Lumpy who says "ha ha ha." The street is at Lumpy's back and a car is driving in the background towards Eddie. When the camera switches back to Eddie, Lumpy approaches Eddie. The car should drive past, but it never does. (00:14:37 - 00:15:40)

Eddie Haskell: Not me! Your father doesn't like me.
Wally Cleaver: Why would you say that?
Eddie Haskell: On account of the way he looks at me when he opens the door. Sometimes I think he'd be happier to see Khrushchev standing there.

Captain Jack - S1-E3

Trivia: The episode "Captain Jack" was the first time a toilet was shown on TV; the boys buy a baby alligator and Wally is shown putting it in the toilet tank. The network censors were so spooked by the thought of showing a toilet on television that they delayed the episode. And when the censors finally relented, the compromise allowed only the toilet tank to be shown, not the bowl.
