Default AYBS? Bloopers !!!!

Since we are such die hard fans of the show, it's within our rights to critic the boo-boo's on it. Can you recall some of the mistakes the show had on it ??????

I'll start this one off with the very first blooper I reacall.....

From the Pilot Eppy, when Lucas and Brahms are carrying the dummy out, the dummys head was face up. When they get to the floor and discover the dummys head is stuck in the lift door, Lucas goes to retrieve it. Then we find that the dummys head is face down......

Hi, I'm new to this forum but I am dying to see if anyone ever caught this..


You know how whenever Mrs. Slocombe has a sight-gag its almost sure to
involve a peak at her bloomers? Welll....

In the episode where the queen may come into the store,

The staff rehearses for the event with Ms. Slocombe and Cptn Peacock
playing the royal couple.....
During that scene, Mr. Harmon jerks the red carpet out from under the
faux-royals while they are on the stairs.....
Mrs. Slocombe does a prat fall, legs in the air and all, but surprise, surprise
and wonder of wonders,.......no sign of knickers anywhere!!!!!

Am I just dreaming?

My favorite personal discovery, and blooper, was the shocking revelation that Mike Berry's FLY IS OPEN and his shirt tail's poking out from it in one scene in "Friends and Neighbors." They do nothing to cover it up and obviously never bothered to re-shoot the scene.

In "Diamonds Are a Man's Best Friend" the wealthy lady customer buys a pair of gloves. Mr. Lucas puts them in a small shopping bag and places the bag directly in front of the lady. But once the lady notices that her diamond is missing, she leaves the store without taking the gloves she bought.

Default Bloopers

I'm not sure if these are bloopers or not, but they amuse me each time I see them.

In the canteen during the "No Sale" episode, Mr. Humphries is asked if he liked his Queen Pudding. He commented "It's not living up to expectations." If you look closely at Mr. Grainger it looks as if he's about to crack up. He has that wide grin on his face.

Also in that same episode, Mr. Lucas is trying to lift the sales figures from Rumbold's office. Just as Mr. Lucas finds the figures, Rumbold's telephone rings. Rumbold walks in and Mr. Lucas, looking for an excuse, says "I came in to answer your phone." A good 20 seconds of dialogue takes place, after which Mr. Lucas finally answers the phone; however, it never rang during those 20 seconds of dialogue, it only rang once at the beginning.

Speaking of telephones, I've noticed in several episodes that the phone cord on Young Mr. Grace's telephone looks like a piece of rope. There's one epsidode ("Top Hat and Tails" I think) where Mr. Rumbold and YMG are talking to each other on the phone, and it is obvious that YMG's phone is fake.

I was wondering if it just wasn't that the phones in there were from 1829. The really old ones with the thick cloth wire. Like the one Rumbold has with the push buttons on it....
