Audio problem: Towards the end of the episode, the castaways read Tongo's note that he can't take them back with him due to how he behaved with the gorilla. Mr. Howell yells "we won't tell anyone!" followed by other random comments from the others for Tongo to come back. Tongo leaves and as the camera pulls away from the castaways, the same audio repeats itself even though this time doesn't match what anyone is saying.
Revealing mistake: Near the end of the episode, all the castaways are passed out cold when Lord Beasley finally catches his butterfly. Right after saying the line "That's the trouble with you Americans - you simply don't know how to hold your tea" as he's exiting off camera, Mrs. Howell starts to open her eyes slightly, but then quickly shuts them again. Perhaps she thought the cameras stopped rolling.
Skipper Jonas Grumby: Ginger, I've got a problem... I've got a real problem... Now you're a girl, right?
Ginger Grant: Well, if you're not sure about that, you have got a problem.
Question: In this episode, as the Professor is put into a trance, in the background, there seems to be a radio or television transmission tower that can be seen over the roof of the hut. It's blurry, but doesn't seem to be a standard palm tree. Is this a mistake, or set error, or my imagination?
