Is that similar to the Soap Opera Incubator, where children are born then a few months later they are teenagers?

I don't know if this qualifies as a blooper, it's more like a mistake.
In S1Ep4 (The Teasling Episode), it appears that in the version I saw Fluer Bennett aka Mavis, did not show up in the end credits. That was my favorite episode with her.

I noticed that in one episode Mrs Slocombe is walking down the stairs, alone, then the camera goes off her then when its back Miss Brahms is with her. I can't remember which episode though

It doesn't take long for the meringue to cook and brown a bit. I've pulled one out about five minutes after it went in, and the nasty egg bit was perfect.

In "The Petrified Pussy." Miss Brahms said that she'd read that the Bog Man was 5,000 years old. But at the museum Peacock asked if he was Neanderthal, who died out around 30,000 years ago, and the Curator said it was hard to date him. If it was so hard to date him, how did Miss Brahms find out it was 5,00 years old?

The writer's were not any smarter than Miss Brahms or Captain Peacock. Have a look at this. http://www.britishmuseum.org/explore...indow_man.aspx

This is in addition to my previous post on the mastodon tooth. The smart and sophisticated BBC made some glaring scientific errors. And this isn't super complicated, like the difference between Top Quarks and Strange Quarks. Any basic science book would have told them what they needed to know.

In the regular show in an episode titled "The Apartment", it was revealed that Mr. Slocombe was taken away by the fraud squad but in AYBSA,they said he disappeared when he went to buy some slightly salted butter.

While they're having the conversation, at about the 24:58 mark just as Mrs Slocombe is saying "Well yes, it's quite cozy, but why can't we have the proper hotel rooms?", you hear some jingling and then you briefly hear a cat screeching and meowing in a quite pissed-off fashion. I wonder what happened? My guess is that the on-stage pussy handler reached in to snatch "Tiddles" off the set but she wasn't having any of it. It's very funny, especially because Mollie doesn't miss a beat.
I just HAD to go back and check it out. Sure enough! Exactly as described and very funny even when expecting it!

Good work!!!

I don't think this is a blooper, just a bit strange
Miss Lovelock sometimes makes comments about Miss Brahms being old, but on Wikipedia it says that she was born in 1954 which would make her 38/39 in the show, which wouldn't be that much older than Miss Lovelock

That sounded good in my head but sorry if it doesn't make sense

Some women are just catty. I have a feeling if their ages had been reversed, then Miss Lovelock's comments would be centered at how much more mature and experienced that she, Jessica, was and implying that our Shirley was a naive hayseed.

I know that Wendy died at an age that is older than I am now. I was born before 1954. Wikipedia is written by people who don't have to watch what they say. I feel most people who write on Wiki are trying their best.

Wendy was born in1943.
Besides it doesn't matter what a person's real age is on TV. They are the age of the character. Miss Lovelock's remark was meant to sting not point out a fact.

Yeah, in my experiences, females of any species can be so much more nasty and territorial than males. Slocombe and Brahms had an almost mother-daughter relationship, which overrides territorial instincts. They still had their moments where they were ready to claw each other's eyes out.
