In the episode I Dream of Jeannie: My Master, the Great Rembrandt, Jeannie turns Tony's amateur painting into a genuine signed Rembrandt. The Rembrandt signature is seen in closeups but is clearly missing from the painting in wider shots.

Throughout the series the launch vehicle and payload rarely matched the detail and often changed within a mission.

Fox example. om S1E1 Tony is launched using a clip of a Mercury-Atlas, the single-occupant type used in the Merucury program for orbital missions. Yet when this is recapped at the start of S1E2, the Germini-Titan launch is shown, which was only really used for 2-man missions.

Errors in geography 

Many of the exterior shots of Tony's home or other areas show mountains or hills in the background. Florida, and southeast Texas where the astronauts actually lived, were as flat as a pancake, especially around Cape Kennedy and Cocoa Beach where the Nelsons are supposed to live.

NASA astronauts did not live in Florida at the time of the series, they lived and trained at the Manned Spacecraft Center (now Johnson Space Center) in Houston.

NASA is portrayed as being run in a more military fashion. NASA never operated this way in reality.

The Roger Healy character was supposed to be an Army officer, but in the 1960's all astronauts had to be highly qualified pilots with long experience in high-performance jet aircraft. The Army did not (and does not) have any such aircraft, so all astronauts came from the Air Force, Navy, or Marine Corps. In addition, according to Healy's uniform insignia, he was not even in Army aviation; he was in the Corps of Engineers.
