Just noticed in the "Barney's Sidecar" episode in season 4 that the two American flags Barney had mounted to the handlebars were old 48-star flags...nearly 5 years after admitting Alaska and Hawaii.
That is definitely trained noticing!
Have you ever noticed? In the “ convicts at large “ episode, Andy greets Mr O’Malley down at bus stop, then about 3 seconds Mr O’Malley is walking up behind him.
That O'Malley was a sneaky one. He managed to sneak in a year-and-a-half later in Season 4 as "Hutch" in "Back to Nature" -- he brought the bows & arrows out to the boys in his truck.
Ya had to really watch those seldom-seen characters!
Just noticed: I meant "Fletch", not Hutch.
Have you ever noticed....in "Prisoner of Love", when Andy leaves to go across the street to the drug store to get a magazine, the Mayberry squad car is seen parked outside the courthouse door. Scene change: when the State Police officer enters, the car parked outside the door magically becomes the State Police car.
Maybe Andy gave himself a "police escort" and drove across the street to the drug store like Barney did when he escorted Melissa to the Post Office in "Barney on the Rebound"?
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!
