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.

I always figgered that portion of the scene was shot thru a mirror, limited work space maybe.

People's hair usually parts depending on right or left handedness. Maybe Andy Griffith is ambidextrous and has a double crown...can part on either side. Actors also are very aware of which side of their face is more photogenic. This might be a factor.

That scene shot thru a mirror.

Normally in TV shows and movies, there is a person who's job is called "Continuity." It is up to them to make sure everything flows correctly from scene to scene. Apparently, that day he was out sick! They filmed the bed scenes at the wrong camera angles and ended up having to reverse the film so the "continuity" of the scene would be intact. (Everything but Andy's hair part!)

Maybe Andy woke up with “Bed Head” and just let the part in his hair have its way.  “How do you know the Sheriff don’t sit under a dryer?

Ep: A Black Day for Mayberry

While Barney is inside the Gold Truck, Gomer soaks him with gasoline by putting the nozzle in the wrong place. When he gets out our the truck less than a minute later, he is completely dry.

Maybe the gasoline went all over the floor. Gomer didn't put a lot in. Maybe the director didn't think Barney ought to be soaking wet for the rest of the shoot. Doesn't he have to do a complicated resistance to getting in the truck fast? Maybe a wet suit would make this trick harder to perform.

I noticed an inconsistency this evening when I was watching "Mr. McBeevee" episode.  In this episode, Barney gets all excited to go out and pet Blackie (Opie's imaginary horse).  But in "Divorce Mountain Style", Barney is allergic to horses and has been since grade school.

Good eye, Dud.  Never noticed that before...

Barney was faking  his "childhood allergy" so that he wouldn't have to ride the horse in "Divorce Mountain Style."

In "Mr. McBeevee" he got caught up in the excitement of the moment and made a fool of himself (one of his many quirks).

Ep: The Luck of Newton Monroe

There is a glass pane on the front of the shelves, just to the left of the big Bulletin Board. Newton breaks it with the mop handle. There doesn't appear to be glass in other episodes... (For ex: Barney quickly hides his cologne there once when Andy comes in suddenly in "The New Mayor")

"Somebody been paintin' in here?"

No, that's Nuit de Paree, Barney's cologne (tee-hee).
