The Men That Corrupted Hadleyburg - S2-E18

Continuity mistake: In the opening shot, Heyes and Curry sit outside the Bannerman office pretending to read a copy of the Denver Post. In full shot, they're holding/hiding behind a single unfolded paper. When we cut to a tighter two-shot, though, each of them holds a separate newspaper. (00:02:00)

Alias Smith and Jones (90 min.) - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Harker rouses a sleepy Heyes and drags him to the saloon, Heyes' hair is falling over his forehead. The shot cuts, and his hair is combed back. Then he steps through the curtain to talk to Wheat, and the hair is over his forehead again. (00:46:50 - 00:47:30)

Dreadful Sorry, Clementine - S2-E10

Jean G

McGuffin - S3-E10

Continuity mistake: Heyes and Curry both lose their hats when they jump from the riverboat into the water and swim ashore. There's no time to go back and fish the hats out, even if they could find them, but by the next episode and for the rest of the season, they somehow have the same hats back again. (00:41:00)

Jean G

Alias Smith and Jones (90 min.) - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Deputy Harker keeps checking his pocket watch while making his rounds. The first two times he looks at it, the watch face has Roman numerals. On his third check, it has regular numbers instead. The fourth time, the Roman numerals are back again. (01:05:15 - 01:06:45)

Jean G

Shootout at Diablo Station - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: In interior shots, the station's multi-paned window has dust and grime on all the panes. In exterior shots, as Curry talks to Lom from inside, it's apparent that there's no glass in the window at all. (00:41:00)

Jean G

The Legacy of Charlie O'Rourke - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: Charlie tells Alice that he buried the gold near the Mexican border. But when she looks up the location on a map, the map she's holding is of the state of Wyoming (which is nowhere near Mexico).

Jean G

Stagecoach Seven - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: From one shot to the next, the six horses pulling the stagecoach change color from black to light brown and back again. (00:07:30)

Jean G

Return to Devil's Hole - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: While the Devil's Hole Gang plays cards in the bunkhouse, Hamilton stands behind the poker table beside one of the beds. In the master shot, he's wearing a tan jacket. In every close-up, however, the jacket disappears and he's wearing a blue shirt. (00:41:00)

Jean G

Alias Smith and Jones (90 min.) - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: In the saloon, Heyes and Curry are standing at the bar about four feet apart. After the deputy sheriff kicks the orchestron (a 19th C. jukebox), the camera angle reverses - and Heyes and Curry are suddenly shoulder-to-shoulder at the bar. (00:48:20)

Jean G

How to Rob a Bank in One Hard Lesson - S2-E2

Only Three to a Bed - S3-E12

The Clementine Ingredient - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: Due to the insertion of stock footage, Heyes and Curry ride the short distance to Clem's house on three different sets of horses.

Jean G

The Man Who Broke the Bank at Red Gap - S2-E17

Factual error: An egotistical, prissy and dishonest lawyer like Mr. Fletcher wouldn't make the mistake of allowing his name to be misspelled on his office door. It reads "Winfred Fletcher." His first name, as it's pronounced throughout the episode, is "Winford." (00:26:50)

Kyle Murtry: Wheat didn't bring any of that.

Trivia: The stiff-necked, humorless Sheriff Tankersley was a nose-thumbing parody of a real (and really unpopular) person. William Tankersley was a notoriously prissy network censor who was infamous at the time for trying (unsuccessfully) to stifle the naughty bits on All in the Family.
