Floyd the Gay Deceiver - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: At the start, when Floyd and Andy walk into the barbershop, in the exterior shot Floyd's white barber jacket is on a hanger hanging from the coat tree that has a finial at the top of its pole, but in the next interior shot that jacket is hanging directly on the coat tree's hook, the hanger has vanished, and that finial has disappeared as well.

The Mayberry Band - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: When the mayor finally arrives for the band's marching performance he parks his white car in front of the wood bench where he'll be sitting in a moment. After the fake band's performance, when the mayor tells Andy that the band can go to the band festival, in the shot of the real band members cheering while Andy pats the mayor on the back and also when the Fleet Band drives by, we can see the entire street in front of the mayor and his car has vanished.

The Cow Thief - S3-E5

Trivia: When Andy, Barney, the mayor, and Upchurch are at the courthouse with the plaster castings of the footprints, Upchurch has named the sets of prints "Able, Baker, and Charlie." The names "Able and Baker" are also the names of the two monkeys who were launched into space on May 28, 1959 in a Jupiter rocket.

Cousin Virgil - S2-E30

Revealing mistake: When Barney pulls the jail cell window out of the exterior brick wall, as it's being yanked out we can see that the brick wall is only thin drywall during the stunt, as well as the fact that the wall around the breakage differs significantly between the closeup and wide shots.

Deputy Otis - S2-E31

Visible crew/equipment: After Otis admits to Andy the reason why his brother thinks that he works at the courthouse Otis walks back to the cell, but when Andy calls him back and gets up, just as Andy walks around the desk we can briefly see two actor's marks where they will stand momentarily.

The Bookie Barber - S2-E28

Visible crew/equipment: After Andy and Barney walk out of Floyd's shop, when Andy makes a crack about Barney's ears being uneven Andy walks offscreen, then Barney shouts at him as Andy's presumably already down the block, but in their reflection in the window behind them we can see that as soon as Andy walks offscreen in this closeup, he actually stops and leans over where we see the camera's located.

Aunt Bee the Warden - S2-E23

Other mistake: The new game/hobby boxes that Barney hands out to the Gordon brothers have their brand names partially covered. Mr. Potato Head has 'Head' covered, the brand name of the leathercraft set is covered, and part of the name on the metalcraft tapping set is covered.

Aunt Bee the Warden - S2-E23

Continuity mistake: When Otis begins his 24 hour sentence at Andy's house by staying in the guest room, Otis is wearing suspenders (braces) that are sewn together in the back in an X-shape, but when Otis leaves the guest room he's wearing entirely different style suspenders attached to his trousers.
