New this month Continuity mistake: During the goat in the master bedroom scene, the flowers on Carol's side of the bed change during the scene. At first there is a pink flower to the right of a white flower, and then it changes to white flower on right of the pink one. In addition, the whole bouquet looks slightly different in different shots.
Continuity mistake: In "Our Son, the Man", Greg wants his own room. One night, while in bed, Mike and Carol discuss their options. Carol says, "How about the attic?" Mike responds with, "That would be fine if Greg were only two and a half feet tall." Later, they give Greg the den for a while. However, in "A Room At the Top", after cleaning out the attic, which was now full size, both Greg and Marcia want it for their own private room.
Other mistake: A final contest is given for control of "green stamps" with all the kids building a "House of Cards." Whomever causes the cards to fall will be the losers. All is going well until Tiger comes in and knocks into Peter and causes him bump the table and knock over the cards. If you watch closely at the end of the scene, when all the dialog is finished, you can see Mike trying to knock down a few remaining cards. However they keep popping up. Probably due to the fact that the cards were glued together to make it easier for the kids to build upon.
Continuity mistake: When the kids are building the card castle to see who would get to choose what they get with the stamps, Jan is putting a card on, in one shot her hair is up in a ponytail then in the other shot her hair is down. This happens back and forth when the shots change.
Audio problem: When the kids are painting a cardboard tree for the play, they ask their dad what he thinks of it. He then says "you better ask the two poodles next door." As he walks away he seems to almost trip/fall over something. Then the mom is heard laughing, even though she's not in the scene.
