* ''Series/TheAvengers'', in its early seasons, was virtually performed live, with no time allotted for retakes. As a result many flubs and errors were kept in. Some were surprising, such as one early Creator/HonorBlackman episode in which a camera crashes into a piece of scenery mid-scene, making it appear - and sound - as if a bomb had gone off in the studio, and in another episode, actress Julie Stevens stammered over introducing John Steed to another character, getting his name garbled, leading Creator/PatrickMacnee to ad-lib a joke in-character to cover.

** The line "intercourse the penguin" was also thrown in by Graham Chapman. You can definitively tell that John Cleese wasn't expecting it and he nearly corpses (in the final version the scene actually cuts to another camera after a few moments).

** Creator/PatrickTroughton frequently varied his lines or added unscripted business during his time as the Doctor, including the first ever Doctor/companion kiss.

** In case you think on-camera errors disappeared after the 1960s, not once but twice during the Capaldi era the lead actors have been captured ''sneezing'' on camera, yet it's been left in. The first is in the 2014 special "[[Recap/DoctorWho2014CSLastChristmas Last Christmas]]" when Creator/PeterCapaldi suddenly sneezes when he enters an area with (fake) snow flying around; the second sees Creator/JennaColeman in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS35E7TheZygonInvasion The Zygon Invasion]]" let off an inaudible but still obvious sneeze while standing on an airport tarmac. In both cases, the actors continue with the scene without losing a beat.

* ''Series/{{Columbo}}'''s famous AndAnotherThing mannerism was a sort of ThrowItIn. While writing the play ''Prescription: Murder'', which introduced the character, writers LevinsonAndLink had just written Columbo's exit from a scene when they realized they had forgotten to include an important plot point. Rather than retyping the whole scene, they simply had Columbo come back in and ask "one more thing".

** "The Caves of Androzani" features several scenes of the villain Morgus turning to the camera and making {{Aside Comment}}s. This was because the actor misunderstood the stage directions, but the director decided to keep it in because it felt Shakespearean.

* During filming of ''Series/RobinOfSherwood'', there was an accident when the horse ridden by Robert Addie, as TheDragon, Guy of Gisburne, accidentally clashed heads with Jeremy Bulloch as ButtMonkey Edward of Wickham. The moment was included in the show, reframed as a KickTheDog moment with Guy deliberately making the horse head-butt him.

* How about throwing in an entire interpretation of a character? As noted under PlayingAgainstType, Marc Warren, known for smooth cockney scoundrel Danny in ''Series/{{Hustle}}'' played a frightening PsychopathicManchild as Jonathan Teatime in ''[[Literature/{{Discworld}} Hogfather]]''. What's interesting is that he was hired to play Teatime [[AffablyEvil similarly to Danny]], but instead chose an interpretation inspired by JohnnyDepp's creepy Music/MichaelJackson-esque Willy Wonka. And it works horrifyingly well.

** In the episode where Donna tries to convince Jackie to move in with her, she at one point says: "Jackie, help me be more like you" and she sounds weird when she says it (like if she is running out of breath, or trying to hold a burp, or both). After a few more unsuccessful shots where neither LauraPrepon (Donna) nor Creator/MilaKunis (Jackie) could keep from laughing, the first shot was kept.

* Creator/{{Fox}} and Creator/{{NBC}}'s live musical productions (to date: ''The Sound of Music'', ''Peter Pan Live'', ''The Wiz'', ''Grease'', and, in December 2016, ''Hairspray'') all begin rehearsal several weeks before going to air, using the script as a template. The production team tweaks things as time goes by, such as the characters' actions and lines, based on what they want to contribute, in addition to trial and error. That's why there are sometimes discrepancies on the shows' soundtrack albums.

** "TOW The Cheap Wedding Dress" has a DeletedScene (present in the DVD cut) that seems be an ad-lib from Matt LeBlanc: After a love interest ditches both Ross and Joey at a restaurant, Ross asks if Joey is hungry, to which Joey replies, "Does a bear shit in the woods?"
