The Men That Corrupted Hadleyburg - S2-E18

Audio problem: Final sound edits were incomplete on this episode when star Pete Duel committed suicide, so his dialogue is "looped" by another actor in several places. Though it's an excellent imitation, it is most noticeably not Duel's voice when Heyes and Curry are waiting for Harry in the opening scene, at the campfire with the Tapscotts, and when Harry tells them about the trial's outcome.

The Dark Gate - S2-E24

Audio problem: Apparently there was a problem with the sound recording during a scene of Ben Cartwright speaking to his son Adam while standing by the chuck wagon. One of Ben's lines was dubbed in by someone else whose voice was higher-pitched and less gruff than that of actor Lorne Greene.

Ladies' Night (2) - S3-E12

Audio problem: Just before Dorothy has her operation, Mike is seated at her desk looking through her medical books. Sully pays a visit to comfort her. During their moment, you can hear slight foot shuffling from the camera crew in the foreground - which is not coming from the outside. Also, you hear a slight grunting during a pause in their conversation.
