Other mistake: Riddler says that his "universal wax solvent" can eat through anything. Which begs the question, just what is that vat he cooks the stuff up in made of? We see the wax burn through solid steel vault doors. So it also ought to be eating through the vat, the floor and the bedrock, and sizzling its way down to the Earth's core. (00:07:00)

The Mating Game - S1-E6

Other mistake: In the episode "The Mating Game," Ashley states, "Terry, sorry about last night." Unless she was with Jimmy and Ashley, because she is referring to when Ashley yelled at Terry. But that was 2 days ago, so why is she saying "last night" when it was 2 days ago?

Jeepers It's the Creeper - S2-E3

Other mistake: There is a scene where the gang is the home of the Bank President, just after dropping off the injured bank guard. At one point the Bank President is standing behind an end table of some kind with a lamp on it.

Mayberry R.F.D. picture

Andy and Helen Get Married - S1-E1

Other mistake: Sam Jones' son, Mike, tells Aunt Bee that the farmhouse has been in their family for 150 years. While showing Aunt Bee a photo album, he points to a photo and says, "That's my great-great-grandfather who started this farm." Pointing to a woman in the same photo, Mike says, "That's my great-grandmother. She lives in Philadelphia." It is very unlikely that the daughter of a man who had started a farm 150 years earlier would still be alive. Assuming the man started the farm when he was in his 20s, he would have had to father a child when he was in his 70s and she would now have to be in her 100s.

Other mistake: Mr. Smith scans the Mona Lisa and determines that it is genuine from DaVinci's brush strokes. He should have also noticed the words "This is a fake" written in felt tip under the paint, from when The Doctor replaced the Mona Lisa with one of DaVinci's "forgeries" in "City of Death."
