Stinky Flanagan - S2-E21

Deliberate mistake: At the end, the U.S. Cavalry "brand" Blue finds on the mule isn't a brand at all: it's obviously been applied with white paint to make it more visible to the camera. It's also unlikely that it would be so large, or that it would be located on the animal's neck instead of on its rump. (00:46:50)

Show generally

Deliberate mistake: Though it was, overall, far more historically accurate than most TV westerns, "High Chaparral" retained one anachronism throughout its run. For safety reasons, all the coal-oil lamps and lanterns on the set contained obvious electric light bulbs rather than burning wicks.

Trivia

While shooting an early episode, Henry Darrow fell from his horse and suffered a painful bruise when he landed very hard on the gun at his hip. After much pleading, he convinced the producers and the prop dept. to make a replica pistol out of rubber. Replaced by the real one only when it actually had to be fired, the fake gun remained in Manolito's holster for the rest of the show's run.
