Give 'Em Enough Rope - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: Reid's rear view mirror, missing in all the medium shots (processed in-studio with an obvious rear-screen projection), mysteriously reappears in full shot when his Chrysler pulls into the car shop. (00:14:00)

Ace in the Hole - S1-E20

Visible crew/equipment: When Reid is showing the DA his closed-circuit video of Mike, several pieces of white tape stuck to the carpet are visible. These are blocking marks, put there to show the actors where to stand. (00:07:15)

Jean G

Crime Wave - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: Kato activates the clamps that prepare Reid's car for the flip-over that will reveal the Green Hornet's "Black Beauty." We see the clamps hook themselves to the car in close-up. But in the next, wider shot of the car turning over, the clamps have disappeared. (00:05:00)

Deadline for Death - S1-E12

Revealing mistake: The Black Beauty, Hornet's car, releases a smoke screen to stop the bad guys' plane from taking off. But you can see in several shots that the stunt car actually releasing the smoke is an entirely different make, model and color. (00:21:30)

Show generally

Continuity mistake: "Hunters & the Hunted": The Black Beauty drives past a red and white 1957 Chevy BelAir parked on the street. In the next shot, from inside the car as they pass, the Chevy is suddenly parked in the same spot, but facing in the opposite direction. Next shot, as the bad guy follows them, the Chevy is facing forward again. (00:18:30)

Show generally

Continuity mistake: "Eat, Drink and Be Dead": Britt Reid's white Chrysler sits in his garage on a turntable that flips over to reveal the Green Hornet's wheels - a customized black Chrysler. But when the clamps rise from the floor to secure the white car for the flip-over, it's apparent that the car being clamped is already the black one. (00:06:00)

Jean G

Narrator: Another challenge for the Green Hornet, his aide Kato, and their rolling arsenal, the Black Beauty. On Police records a wanted criminal, Green Hornet is really Britt Reid, owner-publisher of the Daily Sentinel, his dual identity known only to his secretary and to the district attorney. And now, to protect the rights and lives of decent citizens, rides THE green hornet."
