Best TV mistakes of 1989

Brawl in the Family - S13-E7

Continuity mistake: When Homer's Vegas wife shows him the video in front of Marge, it shows Homer kissing Ned. This didn't happen when she showed it in the Vegas episode.

Show generally

Visible crew/equipment: In the episode where Carl is "fishy sitting" for his boss, Steve is explaining to the boss how he swallowed the fish. You can clearly see the studio lights reflected in Steve's glasses.

Toad Warriors - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: When Mario, Toad and Luigi are driving to the rebel fort, the seatbelts they are wearing disappear for most of the scene.

Yoshi

Mr. Bean Goes To Town - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: Mr. Bean places his shoe on top of the car in the bottom right corner. But when he jumps out in front of the car, it is suddenly at the front in the middle.

The Leap Home (1) - November 25, 1969 - S3-E1

Factual error: The Post Raisin Bran cereal box sitting on the Beckett family breakfast table in 1969 has a 1990s box design.

Jean G

The Bayside Triangle - S4-E5

Visible crew/equipment: After the fashion show when Zack says "Sorry Lisa, I don't know what to say" an entire boom microphone assembly is visible and snatched out of view at the top of the screen.

Show generally

Plot hole: The Triforce of Wisdom is kept in Link's room up in a tower. It does seem logical to keep it with Hyrule's greatest hero to keep safe, but that's all you ever see protecting it. Hyrule is a large kingdom, and the Triforce of Wisdom is a vital part of keeping their community safe. Yet the only one protecting it is Link. And he's not with it 24/7. The room is not very secure either and is breached all the time by Ganon's forces. A kingdom like this would have knights to post all around the tower and be in Link's room when he's away. But nope, not here.

Quantom X

Show generally

Plot hole: If the electrical lights go out at a quarter past ten at Guardbridge, how come there is bright electrical (as suggested by it not flickering like candle light) light coming from a room behind Hal Stanton and Catherine Faulkner when they kiss? This scene takes place after 22:15.

Hercule Poirot's Christmas - S6-E1

Character mistake: After Japp's arrival, when Poirot walks up the stairs with the two male detectives, at one point he says "Mais no madame." ("But no mylady.")

Abra Cadaver - S3-E4

Visible crew/equipment: At the beginning of the episode, when the brothers chat around the central morgue table, the boom mike appears above the table, on the upper side of the screen.

Risk to Death - S10-E7

Continuity mistake: A surfer snaps his neck while trying ride a dangerous wave. Afterwards the surfer is washed ashore. He is out of the water, but when the lifeguards arrive he is offshore again.

Regulus

Old Scores - S2-E17

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Shaddock is shot in the arm you can see that the wound moves from near his elbow to his shoulder.
