The Brady Bunch

Grand Canyon or Bust - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: At home, before leaving for the Grand Canyon, the trailer was much taller than the car, and looked more like a motor home. After that, it becomes a different vehicle more like a trailer, about the same height as the car. When the prosecutor steals the car, it's the tall version, and when they arrive at the Grand Canyon to look at the view, there's nothing attached to the car bumper. When they leave the Grand Canyon it's the shorter version, back to being a trailer.

The Dropout - S2-E1

Other mistake: When Greg is in the kitchen getting ready to leave for the baseball game, there is a number 53 on the back of his jersey. In the following scene at the baseball park, there is another man with his back turned throwing practice balls, who also has the number 53 on the back of his jersey. It is clear that it is not the same person.

Lost Locket, Found Locket - S1-E25

Continuity mistake: When they are getting ready for the reenactment of the night when Jan lost her locket, Greg is about to eat an apple when the boys walk into their room. When Greg sits down, his apple is mostly finished.

The Babysitters - S2-E2

Other mistake: Near the end when Greg goes into the living room to call the police, he picks up the phone receiver and says into it "Jan, hang up the phone, I have to make an important call." But Jan was in the TV room, watching the TV, sitting next to Marcia.

Suggested correction: The phone is sitting next to her on the couch and you can see she's on the phone.


The Private Ear - S3-E9

Factual error: About 1/3 through the show, Greg has to talk to Marcia and asks Peter to leave. On the way out Peter stops to start recording on the tape recorder. He only pushes the play button. He would have had to push the red record and play button to record their conversation.

Two Petes in a Pod - S5-E18

Audio problem: Many times throughout this episode, the actors' voices echo, especially when Mike yells out to Peter (and vice versa) from different rooms.

Big Little Man - S3-E15

Continuity mistake: When Greg runs into the girls' bedroom to rescue Bobby from the window ledge, there's a black stuffed animal sitting in the middle of the bed nearest the door. After Greg pulls Bobby into the room, the stuffed animal is at the head of the bed. (00:03:45)

Greg's Triangle - S4-E11

Continuity mistake: Jennifer writes her phone number on Greg's right hand with the first number starting at his thumb, but when Greg looks at his hand to read the phone number, the phone number was written with the first number near his fingers and the last number written by his thumb. (00:02:50)

Goodbye, Alice, Hello - S4-E10

Continuity mistake: Greg is wearing dark dress shoes when he comes in to the yard playing football with Peter. When they enter the kitchen, Greg is wearing white sneakers, and when Greg enters the living room, he is wearing the dark dress shoes again. (00:01:15)

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.
