Beauty Is as Beauty Does - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: We see a shot of the outside of Ginger's hut when she and the Skipper are first planning for the beauty contest. The door to the hut has a window in it and we can see the Skipper's hand leaning on the sill. We cut inside and suddenly Ginger is by the door and the window has vanished.

And Then There Were None - S3-E13

Continuity mistake: Whenever one of the castaways falls in the trap and "disappears", there is complete silence when their name is called out, yet when the Skipper falls in (the last of the six), suddenly Gilligan hears all their voices shouting from down below.

Big Man on a Little Stick - S1-E22

Continuity mistake: As the Professor sends Duke off, he gives the island's position as 110° Latitude, 10° Longitude. In "X Marks The Spot" (S1: E: 19), the position is given as 140° Latitude, 10° Longitude.

Nyet, Nyet, Not Yet - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: The professor mentions he can't drink vodka with the Russians because he's allergic to alcohol, yet in the episode "Man With A Net" (with Lord Beesley), he drinks a strong alchoholic drink he made along with everyone else with no signs of any sickness, or reaction preventing him from drinking it.

Pass the Vegetables, Please - S3-E3

Continuity mistake: The radiation meter the Professor reads disappears between shots.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: There are several shots of the island used in the series. In the opening, it appears small. In some inland shots it appears immense and mountainous, despite being described numerous times as a "tiny island somewhere in the Pacific."

Three to Get Ready - S1-E30

Operation: Steam Heat - S2-E25

Continuity mistake: The professor wound the clock on the bomb by turning the hand to nine. A second after it was tossed in, it reads eight. It then takes about about fifteen seconds between the numbers to get to zero.

Operation: Steam Heat - S2-E25

Continuity mistake: When Howell is talking to Gilligan, the ground apparently trembles due to a volcano. Before the rumble, Howell's Safari hat brim is bent up on the left side. After the cut to the Professor, the right side is bent upward.

The Producer - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: Harold Hecuba (a.k.a. H.H.) goes out to change costumes. When he comes in as Ophelia the stage door first closes behind him, then falls off the hinges. The shot cuts to the Castaways, then back to H.H., and the door is back on the hinges.

The Big Gold Strike - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: As the raft starts to sink, Lovey goes into the water on the back side of the raft. When the camera is in a close up of Mr. Howell, she's sitting beside him again. Then she's neck-deep in the water in the next wide shot.

Season 1 generally

Continuity mistake: When the SS Minnow is shown beached on the deserted island, it's seen leaning on its left. At the ending credits, the Minnow is shown completely upright.

The Hunter - S3-E18

Continuity mistake: Gilligan advises Kincaid that there's no game on the island. This contradicts an earlier episode in the same season where the castaways spotted a wild boar roaming the island (episode "Where there's a will").

Continuity mistake: When the Skipper squeezes Gilligan to get rid of the helium, in one shot the Skipper's hat is on, and in the other it is not.
