Also, almost the entire ensemble cast of THE CLOSER went on to a "new series" MAJOR CRIMES.

Great example. Never occurred to me.

Akim Tamiroff and Brian Donlevy have cameos at the end of THE MIRACLE OF MORGAN'S CREEK (1944). They are reprising their roles from THE GREAT MCGINTY (1940). Suggesting that the later film is a spinoff of the earlier film.

Shakespeare himself wrote the Falstaff spinoff MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR, and Orson Welles made a Falstaff movie called CHIMES AT MIDNIGHT

Charters & Caldicott from THE LADY VANISHES reappeared in NIGHT TRAIN TO MUNICH and MILLIONS LIKE US as side characters, but got their own film: CROOK'S TOUR (1940) and their own miniseries in the 80s

Also Lou Grant, and the Andy Griffith spinoff Gomer Pyle USMC (was Mayberry RFD based on actual characters?)

In Mayberry RFD the Taylors (Andy, Opie and Helen whom Andy has married) move away. But they make return visits the first season, because Helen is pregnant and has a baby. Aunt Bee has chosen to remain in Mayberry and moves in with a farm family, led by Ken Berry whose character Sam was introduced in the last four episodes of The Andy Griffith Show. Frances Bavier retired in 1970, so Aunt Bee is not in the third season of Mayberry RFD and is replaced by a new housekeeper character played by Alice Ghostley. Most of the supporting characters continued, however...Howard, Goober, Emmett and Clara. 

So to answer your question, Mayberry RFD does provide continuity with the earlier series.

This happens a lot with kids' movies:

THE LEGO MOVIE found that everyone loved the Lego Batman character, so he got his own movie

ANASTASIA gave a whole movie to Bartok the bat called BARTOK THE MAGNIFICENT

I remember being a little child watching the Ewok movies, spunoff from RETURN OF THE JEDI, and later we've seen a whole slew of STAR WARS spinoff movies

The best part of SHREK 2 was a character who later got his own cartoon film PUSS IN BOOTS

The PENGUINS OF MADAGASCAR got their own movie

The Studio Ghibli cartoon film THE CAT RETURNS is a spinoff of WHISPER OF THE HEART

Tom Conway's character from THE CAT PEOPLE got his own movie in THE 7TH VICTIM

Lloyd Nolan's Insector Briggs from THE HOUSE ON 92ND STREET got his own movie in THE STREET WITH NO NAME

This also happens a lot in comic book movies but someone more knowledgeable in that field will have to break it down

Thanks Lonesome for your informative posts on this subject. 

And I love the Inspector Briggs character in those two crime films, so thanks for mentioning him!

Boom mic is visible

screen-shot-2019-06-16-at-9.42.17-am.png

SERAPHIM FALLS (2006)…Notice the boom mic above Liam Neeson.

Boom mics are visible in AMERICAN GANGSTER (2007).

Many Ed Wood films have boom mics in the shots, or shadows on the actors’ faces, cast by the overhead mics.

I know you're looking for goofs, but I could only think of boom mics we're supposed to see...

Lou Grant wasn't happy with a boom mic either when he filed in for Ted Baxter  Image result for lou grant watch me mess up the news

In HOLIDAY (1938) there's a scene where a shadow from a boom mic appears across Lew Ayres face in scene with Lew Ayres holding Cary Grant's arm with Doris Nolan in background.

I like the examples you provided. They don't have to be goofs. 

Just any occasion where a boom mic is visible in the shot...whether it was unintentional or not.

Dolemite movies are well known for this. So much so that people have drinking games over it.
