- Stan Ogden gives his age as forty-eight, whereas later episodes establish his (believed) birth year to 1922 making him forty-two at this point in time. The "believed" refers to Stan's discovery after reading his birth certificate in Episode 2364 (28th November 1983) that he was actually born in 1919.
- From Episode 172 (6th August 1962) to Episode 459 (5th May 1965) the programme featured a standardised cast list for the regular characters.
