New Neighbor Sam - S1-E28

Operation: Steam Heat - S2-E25

Revealing mistake: After Gilligan says his line about the earth swallowing them all up, an explosion rocks the area. Between the end of the line, and the rocking, there's a split second of blackness indicating a cut between the line and the action.

Movie Nut

Show generally

Revealing mistake: Any time you see the vines used for different purposes, it's painfully obvious that they're very poorly disguised rope, such as the ones the Skipper and Professor use to rock the boat mock-up in the episode "Quick, Before It Sinks."

Movie Nut

Man with a Net - S3-E7

Revealing mistake: Near the end of the episode, all the castaways are passed out cold when Lord Beasley finally catches his butterfly. Right after saying the line "That's the trouble with you Americans - you simply don't know how to hold your tea" as he's exiting off camera, Mrs. Howell starts to open her eyes slightly, but then quickly shuts them again. Perhaps she thought the cameras stopped rolling.

Will the Real Mr. Howell Please Stand Up? - S2-E26

Revealing mistake: When Gilligan demonstrates his man-made wings, when the camera goes close up to him, you can see the wires.

Operation: Steam Heat - S2-E25

Movie Nut

Voodoo Something to Me - S1-E4

Movie Nut

Home Sweet Hut - S1-E3

Revealing mistake: The beam the Skipper wants Gilligan to work on is six feet, but if you look carefully, the beam is already pre-cut.

Movie Nut

Court-Martial - S3-E17

Revealing mistake: In Gilligan's dream sequence, when the pirate goes to hit his fencing foil, the score mark where the break was supposed to happen is plainly visible, and he's holding it very still for the gag.

Movie Nut

The Invasion - S3-E11

Revealing mistake: After the Skipper throws the attache case in the lagoon, it explodes. Problem is that the lagoon water and the water with the explosion are in two different areas, and where the explosion is, there was no case floating. Just markers floating where the explosive is placed underwater.

Pass the Vegetables, Please - S3-E3

Revealing mistake: As the camera pulls back from the hut, the bubbles can be seen coming from around the edges of the shot.

Movie Nut

Pass the Vegetables, Please - S3-E3

Revealing mistake: As the Professor reads his meter, the bubbles are shooting from beside his nose, rather than his mouth.

Movie Nut

Pass the Vegetables, Please - S3-E3

Revealing mistake: When Gilligan picks up a coconut, the first one he crushes easily is totally different than the ones in the pile it's on, showing it was a specially made prop.

Movie Nut

Marooned - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: After the Skipper tosses the sail into the water, look at the background. On the right side of the shot, the bottom of the backdrop is easily seen, showing this scene is filmed in a huge water tank set.

Movie Nut

Two on a Raft - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: When the shark is attacking Gilligan's oar the second time, it stops completely for a couple of seconds.
