Malcolm in the Middle

Pilot - S1-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When Dewey yells for Lois because the bow was put on the present, if you look to the left of Lois, you will see a crewmember kneeling down, handing Lois the red dress, who is holding a bucket of water. He quickly gets out of the camera's view. [This is on the DVD of the first season. Someone said on the audio commentary that after catching it, they deliberately left it in to see if anyone would spot it. It's still a mistake, but that's why it's there.]

Home Alone 4 - S1-E3

Visible crew/equipment: While Malcolm, Reese, Dewey, and Francis are deliberately making their house messy, you can see right above their ceiling a bright light shining down and a black background. It shows that they film their interior of their house on a set.

Pilot - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: At the start, when Lois tells Hal to raise his arms so she can shave his armpits, if you look at the bottom of the screen you can briefly see that Hal is wearing something to cover up his privates.

Yoshi

Red Dress - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When Lois is yelling at the boys for playing with fire, the location of the green scissors on the table keeps changing between shots.

Flashback - S2-E25

Visible crew/equipment: When Lois goes into labour with Malcolm, she runs outside taking Francis and Reese with her. When Francis says, "You're a liar, you're a liar," watch the back window of the car and you will see the camera and camera operator's reflection in the window.

Family Reunion - S4-E3

Plot hole: Hal says that his father was never there when he got dumped. But in episode 7, "Francis Escapes" Hal tells Francis he's never been dumped.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Season 6, episode 7: "Hal Sleepwalks"; At school, Dewey stops the shouting match between the two opponents. In the shots facing Dewey, the boy's arms are held way up high in front of him, but in the shots facing the kids, the boy's arms are down at his sides.

Super Grover

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: In the opening, we see Dewey's cold feet. Two shots later, his legs are in a different position.

Yoshi

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Lois and Hal tell Malcolm he is going to the "special class", Hal notes that the pitcher of iced-tea he makes is always empty, and says, "Look at that - gone," before placing the lid back onto the pitcher. Yet, when it cuts to the wide shot of the table, the pitcher lid is by Hal's elbow.

Jeimi

Bride of Ida - S7-E11

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the grandma is talking at the table with Reese and Malcolm, notice the bottle on the table next the the grandma, between takes the cork from the bottle goes from being on top of the bottle to next to the bottle, it changes in almost every different shot.

Malcolm Babysits - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: When Malcolm is trying to get the TV back to the channel he was watching, he picks up a big remote and finds the channel which the video camera feed is on, but the remote he is holding on the TV is a smaller one. It then cuts back to Malcolm who is moving his hand away from the remote he just put down and it's the bigger one again.

Cybermoose

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Episode 16 Season 6 "No Motorcycles." Francis calls Hal out to the driveway where two motorcycles are parked. In the first camera shot the motorcycles are parked side by side with the front wheels turned in the same direction. All subsequent shots of the motorcycles in the driveway show them in a different position, one angled behind the other, with the front wheels turned in opposite directions.

Traffic Jam (2) - S2-E1

Audio problem: Near the end when the family have got back in the car Malcolm says something like "who would have thought a traffic jam could be so cool, we should do this again". Well near the end of the sentence we can see Malcolm's mouth and it isn't moving.

Kicked Out - S4-E12

Continuity mistake: Malcolm's seat belt changes from on to off the first scene with him and his mom in the car. When it's a shot from the front it's on, but when it's a shot from the side (from the driver's/mom side) you can see that the part of the seat belt that's going across is now behind Malcolm, instead of on him like it was a second ago. This changes back and forth.

Pilot - S1-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When Malcolm is first visiting Stevie, and Stevie is telling the joke, you can see the hair and hand of a crew member coaching Stevie through the joke.

Kuhnaydeein

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Season 5, Episode 13, "Lois' Sister." When Susan arrives Hal is holding Jaime, and the baby's entire body changes position between shots repeatedly - in some shots the front of Jaime's body faces Hal, yet in others Jaime's back faces Hal.

Super Grover

Pearl Harbor - S6-E4

Continuity mistake: Lois and Jessica enter the house after coming back from going to a musical. As Lois comes through the door her purse slips off her shoulder and she catches it around her elbow. In the next shot a second later, the purse is back up on her shoulder.

Forwards Backwards - S4-E5

Deliberate mistake: When Malcom scares Reese with the horn while Reese is in the shower, Reese falls and we get a glimpse of the shorts he is wearing. Shorts in the shower?

Show generally

Revealing mistake: In season 5, second episode, in an imagination sequence Reese and Malcolm are throwing around Jamie, but you can see it is a doll.

Buseys Run Away - S6-E2

Visible crew/equipment: When Hal is walking the stroller with Jamie inside at the park and Hal approaches the Body Builders, the full body of a camera-man and the camera he's filming with is ridiculously visible on the right side of the screen in a wide-shot.
