The 8th season was the worst offender in regards to continuity eff ups. According to the opening credits, it took place in 1967, but the characters and world events referenced were more in line with the late 60s/early 70s.

In the show's defense, no one put that much detail into fact checking sitcoms back then. Seriously, did they honestly think a bunch of us would be on a world wide computer network 33 years after the show's very lame ending discussing minutiae like this?
