The Brady Bunch

What Goes Up . . . - S2-E11

Revealing mistake: When Peter is on the trampoline, instead of saying "Peter," Carol says, "Go get 'em, Chris!" and a few minutes later the same thing happens after Cindy has a turn alone, you can hear Greg say "Why don't you give it a try, Eve?" (00:18:10 - 00:19:50)

Lights Out - S2-E20

Revealing mistake: When Peter is on stage at his school for the talent show, Cindy gets into the disappearing lady booth and Peter closes the curtain. He says the magic words, yanks open the curtain and Cindy has disappeared. Look at the top left side of the booth and you can see where the stage curtain is piled up on top of the booth. There is just enough room for Susan Olsen to get out of the booth and then get back in.

Alice's September Song - S2-E23

Revealing mistake: One of the times that Sam comes over to visit Mr. Brady, he comes in through the back sliding "glass" door. There is no glass in the door. You can tell this because when Sam closes the door, to do so, he puts his hand through the areas where glass would be.

The Hustler - S5-E21

Revealing mistake: When Mike's boss, his wife and two other guests arrive at the house for a night of pool, the four guests are greeted at the front door, enter the brick entry foyer, and descend the steps into the living room. As the camera pans to capture the guests entering the living room, the obviously unfinished and unbricked end of the entry platform can be seen in the shot.

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)

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

Revealing mistake: When Cindy and her parents get home after the television show, just as Carol and Mike walk down the steps the set's unfinished wood can be seen at the edge of the steps, at the bottom right corner of the screen. (00:22:40)

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.
