Little House on the Prairie

Wave of the Future - S8-E10

Continuity mistake: The restaurant has "Caroline's" painted on the windows (except while operating as Mrs. Sullivan's). However, near the start of the episode, when the horses trot by in a nighttime exterior shot of the restaurant, the window still reads "Nellie's" (taken from earlier in the series). This same mistake has been seen in at least one other episode of season 8 as well.

A Wiser Heart - S8-E5

Continuity mistake: When Laura pushes Mrs. Pierce, she lands in a pail of water on her buttocks, and her hair remains dry. The next shot is of Laura saying something, then in the very next shot we see Mrs. Pierce still sitting in the bucket, only now her hair is soaked. Since she landed on her behind, her hair should not have been soaked, and there was no time for anyone to pour water on her head between the shots.

He Was Only Twelve (2) - S8-E22

Continuity mistake: After James is shot, Charles takes James away from the house because his family is getting upset. He builds an altar. A ladder is on the side where the shelter is. The ladder is gone in subsequent shots.
