See Here, Private Partridge - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: When they are in the bus on the way to record an album, Shirley is wearing a pale blue turtleneck with a scarf.

Love at First Slight - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: At the end Laurie is in the kitchen with her mom and Keith. She tells Keith the boyfriends of the girls who were chasing him are at the door. Her hair is down. Keith runs out of the door and she hollers after him. When they cut back her hair is in a ponytail.

This is My Song - S1-E11

Audio problem: In the final song, "This is What It's Like to Be Lovers", the lead male studio singer starts the song, not David Cassidy, then they switch to David Cassidy's real voice halfway through for just two lines, then they switch back to the male voice of the studio singer.

Danny: You can't blame me. I'm just a kid.
Reuben Kincaid: No, you're not. You're a midget in a kid suit.
