OK...Let's find the stuff that may not be so obvious, and the ones that make you think, "Hey, I never noticed that before." and post them for all to now be able to notice.

Post the Episode and the thing you noticed.  See my first post as an example.

And they probably even tried to ride their bikes on the sidewalk, too...O.S.G. Haha
Lol. Barney dropped the bud-nippin' ball!
Ever notice how Otis puts the key around his head before he opens the jail cell...haha. I just find that funny.
The Mayberry Gazette must have a pretty good circulation...I noticed that they got the paper all the way over in Greendale, when their Mayor tried to hire Barney.
And occasionally it changed names...more than once Andy was seen holding the Mt Airy News.
I wonder if he took his hometown paper and they just grabbed it to use as a prop without thinking about it.

I think they probably didn't think anyone would be able to actually read the paper on film. The resolution of TV screens in the 60s was quite a bit lower than our HD sets today. They would just be able to recognize that it was a newspaper. Many of the things we're pointing out wouldn't have been noticed on a 60s era TV screen. 

Have you ever noticed-----In the opening of the "Cow Thief" epp, when Barney, Andy, Fletch, and the Mayor are surveying the area, the window in the house in the background has no window panes in the window. It is a  4 pane window frame yet the breeze is moving the curtains in and out the window. 

Good find. Either Fletch was too cheap to replace the glass, or Opie and his friends were playing baseball there recently.

I figured Ernest T. stopped by to deliver a message.

Maybe this has been covered before but I'll go for it. In season 5, The Pageant, Mayberry celebrates its centennial and that means the town was founded in the middle 1860s. However, the pageant portrays a founding that more likely happened at least 200 years previously. The coming together of Nugatuck and Laughing Face is not 19th century in North Carolina...more like 18th century or even earlier. And Otis received an award as a descendent of a Revolutionary War hero. I think there was an earlier episode also that implied a much earlier founding. Sorry if I'm sounding like Goober with a beard but I just had to say.

Closely related to this is the number of years Barney was a deputy. In "Barney's Physical", Season 5, he celebrates 5 years with the "Sheriff's Office". In Season 4, Barney celebrates being sworn in "10 years ago last month".

Sorry if this was already posted!
