Tiger, Tiger! - S1-E18

Visible crew/equipment: When Mike and Bobby drive up in the station wagon, just as Mike stops the car, on the left side of the screen we can see the edge of the house set. Instead of the usual wood fence in the yard, there appears to be a directors chair (provided to all cast members) in the dark background. (00:05:35)

54-40 and Fight - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: When Marcia takes her last turn placing a card at the top of the tall house of cards, in the shots facing her she's stressed about accidentally collapsing the cards so she holds back her charm bracelet with her left hand, but in the first shot facing the three boys Marcia's left arm is down at her side and the charm bracelet is dangling at her wrist, right beside the cards.

The Personality Kid - S3-E6

Deliberate mistake: During Peter's party, when the girls start to gather around Peter to try and convince him that he's not dull, there's a closeup of Peter that's a flipped shot. Additionally, when everyone runs out for the fire drill, Peter's striped tie is tied very differently - it goes from grey/gold at the top to burgundy at the top.

Season 2 generally

Question: In season 2, there were 5 episodes made without one of the kids appearing in the episode. (Marcia, Jan, Cindy, Peter, and Bobby were each absent one episode). What was the reason behind this?

Answer: Much trivia has been written about "The Brady Bunch, " including the various interrelationships and dynamics among the members of the cast. For example, much has been written about why Robert Reed's Mike Brady did not appear in a couple of episodes, including the series finale, due to rancorous creative and artistic differences with series creator, Sherwood Schwartz. However, in contrast, I have never run across any reasons given why a particular child did not appear in specific episodes - only that the episodes were missed. This suggests the causes were likely unexceptional, such as illness, injuries, vacations, or real-life family obligations.
