Wow! That's a big boo boo. You would think they would have caught that!
I was watching the episode the other day where Barney was showing how he still had the Preamble memorized and he ended up having magic hair!! One scene his hair is messed up, then in the wider shot, his hair was combed, back to the small angle the hair is messed up again, etc. etc. You got to give it up to that deputy though. He's got a memory like tack!
In the Brisco Declares for Aunt Bee have you noticed when Andy and Aunt Bee step outside to discuss the proposal situation at the Darling cabin as Brisco peeks outside to watch them it is obvious there is no glass in the pane he is looking through but the one directly below is very dirty.
Obviously the work of Ernest T Bass!
Yeah - they'd have to go into town for new glass....which may have been the reason for their being in town when they were sidetracked by Aunt Bee's "rose poetry" speakin' to Briscoe's heart.
Since normally they'd only go to town for big-ticket events like picking up the Private First Class returning from servicin' his country, burying a divorce proceeding, or finding a husband for a baby girl -- I'm surprised that an insignificant thing like new panes of glass would be worth firing up the ol' pickup!
in referencing Duds post from about page 2 about tobacco products in Mayberry,
In S1 E21 I believe Barney implies he is going to get some cigars for Gentleman Dan Caldwell at the Drug Store.
Also in S5 E10 "Goodbye, Sheriff Taylor" when Barney is pep talking his three Deputy candidates in the Courthouse and he hits Otis with a tomato the stain on his shirt grows and shrinks with the different camera angles.
Good eyee and ears Steve!
File this under "trivial trivia".
In "Wedding Bells For Aunt Bee", at about the 4:10 mark, Otis lights up a cig, which is not that unusual. What is unusual is that he pulls it out of his pocket, and it has been previously smoked! It is shorter than it should be, and the end, before he even lights it, is black!
I will have no smoking of used cigarettes in my town!
Could this be typical drunk or hobo behavior?
I was startled watching the Newton Munroe episode when he went down in the basement to work on the furnace. What furnace?? We know from the Save Andy's Life one that the jail had a heater near the "maximum security" cells.
Have you ever noticed that in the early episodes, there's a door in the corner next to cell #2 (or is it cell #1? Check with Gomer.)? Not long after that, the door is gone, and the heater ends up over that way. Personally, I think the door was expendable, but I wouldn't take a dollar and a quarter for the heater.
