The Brady Bunch

Grand Canyon or Bust - S3-E2

Other mistake: Just after Bobby and Cindy get lost, there are shots showing Mike and Carol calling for them. A couple of minutes later the same shots are shown again, but this time they're flipped. (00:22:00)

The Cincinnati Kids - S5-E11

Plot hole: The Bradys and Alice run a relay through the amusement park to get the sketches to Mike at the manager's office. They locate another person to pass the cylinder off to when they get too tired to run. But they all arrive together seconds after Carol gives the sketches to Mike. (00:19:15)


The Cincinnati Kids - S5-E11

Plot hole: When Mike was at the meeting and pulled out the Yogi Bear poster, he said he could find the other cylinder, and was told by one of the other men that they had to catch a plane in 30 minutes. After that, he had to find Jan, and then Jan and Marcia had time to go on about 4 rides and then find the sketches and then start their run across the park. There is no way all of that could have been done in less than 30 minutes.

Is There a Doctor in the House? - S1-E13

Other mistake: At the end of the episode, when they were looking at the chart they created, and Alice was found to add the measles, you see Mike Brady adding the word "Alice." But the kids and Tiger all had columns, but he is adding her as an extra row, which was for the different illnesses, to suggest that Alice was an illness instead of a person having the illness.

You Can't Win 'Em All - S4-E22

Continuity mistake: At the start, when Cindy walks into the kitchen she sets her books down on the counter with the book's binding facing the sink, but in the closeup the book's binding now faces the opposite way, toward the stove. Additionally, the grocery bag which was on the counter right beside Carol, has been moved for the closeup so Carol is in full view, but the bag is now at the very edge of the counter near the stove, which is pretty odd since there's not enough counter there to actually hold the full grocery bag (presumably something else supported the bag off camera).

Top Secret - S5-E19

Revealing mistake: Bobby and Oliver are building a house of cards on a small platform sitting on the table when all of a sudden the house of cards collapses. The reason: the platform moves by itself. Clearly it was manipulated off-screen somehow. (00:01:20)

Kitty Karry-All is Missing - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: As Bobby empties his pockets in search of his kazoo, he piles the contents on a nearby table. In a long shot, several of the toys (most noticeably a green plastic paddle) disappear, only to reappear when Cindy is leaving the room. (00:18:10)

Ghost Town, U.S.A. - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: When Zaccariah steals the last piece of fried chicken off the plate, the plate is left completely clean, yet when Alice goes to get the piece a few seconds later, there's a sizable grease stain on the plate. (00:14:05)

Jan Brady: Well, all day long at school I hear how great Marcia is at this or how wonderful Marcia did that! Marcia, Marcia, Marcia.

54-40 and Fight - S1-E15

Question: Would someone please explain to me why Marcia did not just simply remove her dangly bracelet that endangered the girls standing in the house of cards competition after Carol said "Oh Marcia, Marcia, your bracelet"? It would have made it less stressful on her not to mention her team, and she wouldn't have had to restrain it with her other hand.

Answer: There were several episodes throughout the run of the show where Marcia was infatuated with a guy she went to school with. This bracelet could have been a gift from her then-boyfriend; as such, she would not want to take it off, as a sign of loyalty. A stupid thing to do, of course, but it's not a mistake for a character simply to be dumb.

Matty Blast

Answer: The dangling bracelet was used for dramatic purposes - to keep the audience on edge.
