Our Vines Have Tender Apes - S3-E20

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.

Professor Roy Hinkley: Well, that glue is permanent! There's nothing on the island to dissolve it. Why do you know what it would take? It would take a polyester derivative of an organic hydroxide molecule.
Thurston Howell III: Watch your language! You're in the presence of a lady.

Trivia: In the opening credits of the black-and-white episodes, the US flag at the marina is at half-mast because the opening was filmed shortly after the Kennedy assassination.

Voodoo - S3-E5

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?

Movie Nut

Chosen answer: It looks like a mistake to me I see it when the Professor is put into a trance, but it is not there later.
