Suggested correction: This is a plot point of the storyline, not any kind of a mistake. At the start of this episode, we hear Bo and Luke talking while Rosco is chasing them, and Bo says, "How does he know it's us if it ain't even our car." It's mentioned a few times during this episode, including by narrator, Waylon Jennings. Bo and Luke are driving a "1975 blue Plymouth Fury" as noted by its owner, Cooter Davenport, who was running the moonshine for Boss Hogg.

One Armed Bandits - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: The chase with Daisy in Rosco's squad car ends with a piano slamming into the car. When the truck hauling it comes to a stop, there's a reaction shot of Daisy at the wheel of the squad car. In the next shot, when the piano hits it, the car is empty. A second later, Rosco gets out of the truck and Daisy is back in the driver's seat. (00:30:00)

Repo Men - S1-E4

Other mistake: In the first scene when Bo and Luke are practicing with the General Lee, you see Bo using the clutch, but in the next shot both hands are on the wheel. He didn't have any time to move his hands in about a milisecond.

Deputy Dukes - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: After picking up Marlowe, the deputy with them mentions the car following them. They're out in the wide open area, but the car in the mirror is in the downtown area. Then after a quick cut, they're in the downtown area of Springville again.

Swamp Molly - S1-E6

Audio problem: In Hogg's office in the Boar's Nest, after Roscoe tells of the activities, Boss goes to put the needle back on the record. Trouble is, the record doesn't move until Boss turns it, but the music started before the record moved.

Daisy's Song - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: In the close up shots of the General during the junkyard chase, Daisy is sitting between the boys. In the shots from the car being chased, she appears to be in the back seat, looking over Luke's left shoulder.

Movie Nut

Swamp Molly - S1-E6

Revealing mistake: When the truck goes into the water, you can see the driver was either a stunt driver or a dummy. Also, you can see the top of the truck just under the surface of the water, suggesting it was on the bottom. A few seconds later, and all you can see are bubbles.

Movie Nut

Route 7-11 - S1-E12

Character mistake: In this episode, they constantly refer to the semi as an eighteen wheeler. The tractor would have tandem (two) rear axles with dual tires. This one has only one rear axle on the tractor. Added up, the rig only has fourteen wheels.

Route 7-11 - S1-E12

Other mistake: In the opening sequence, there's a shot from on top of the General Lee. As they do a one-eighty, you can see skid marks on the road where they have done other turns.

Deputy Enos Strate: Possum on a gumbush.
