Best fantasy TV mistakes of all time

SpongeBob Meets the Strangler / Pranks a Lot - S3-E20

Plot hole: When the invisible Spongebob and Patrick scare Sandy, they are using a sheet to appear as "ghosts". However, the form of the sheet reveals that they don't have their helmet bowls on. How could they survive in the treedome that time? They sounded fine, not dehydrated.

The Importance of Being Phoebe - S5-E11

Continuity mistake: When Phoebe is lying on the ground and is supposed to be unconscious, when Cole goes to pick her up you can see Phoebe throw her arms around his neck.

Halloween - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: Willow is turned into a ghost. Throughout the entire episode, she can't touch anything (can't turn the pages of a book, etc.), yet towards the end when she and Giles go to Ethan's shop, and she leaves, you can hear that she opened and closed the door, even though she can walk through walls and can't actually touch the door. The curtain moves when she leaves too.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: When the Villains send their cronies (for example, Putties, Tengu Warriors, Cogs, Piranhatrons, etc.), their numbers constantly change from when they arrive, to when they leave. This is due to the use of Japanese footage used from Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In numerous shots of individual characters, while on the island, the sweat stains on their clothing significantly and repeatedly change, or disappear and reappear between shots.

The Gungan General - S1-E12

Plot hole: In the previous episode, "Dooku Captured," we see the pirates drug the Jedis' drinks, but we then see them swap their mugs with the ones next to them. We even see those pirates passed out as the camera pulls back, just before the credits. How then are Obi Wan and Anakin captured at the opening of this episode if they changed drinks? Obi Wan even says, "We were drugged."

Alex's Choice - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: After Mrs. Russo puts Justin and Max in the lair, she is wondering if she should put the big lock on the door or not. She decides not to and puts the lock down on the counter. Two shots later you see the lock is back on the door, but unlocked. You never see Mrs. Russo put the lock on the door.

Angel mistake picture

Show generally

Revealing mistake: At the end of the opening credits, you can see Angel's reflection in the puddle on the floor. Since he is a vampire, this should not happen.

Lisa Black

Show generally

Continuity mistake: 4-11: Truth or Cosmoquences / Beach Bummed: When we first see Trixie and Timmy inside Timmy's large sand castle (or whatever it was), they were sitting at the ends of a long table. But when Francis destroys the castle, Trixie and Timmy are way closer together.

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

H2O (2006)

Something Fishy - S1-E5

Plot hole: When Emma gets the water bottle out of the fridge, the bottle that she touches is wet, so shouldn't this trigger her transformation?

Brad

The Bermuda Triangle Crisis - S2-E4

Revealing mistake: When Wonder Woman drops a mine into the water, she's supposed to be dropping it into the ocean. However, you can see a drain plug of some sort in the background and the "ocean" is obviously a pool, or similar.

Farscape mistake picture

Premiere - S1-E1

Visible crew/equipment: After John successfully instructs Aeryn on how to maneuver and slingshot Moya away from the PK's Command Carrier, Zhaan gives John a very special thank you. When it cuts to the DRD scooting across the floor in Moya's empty Command, a crew member wearing shorts can be seen at the right side of the screen, as he's looking in the direction of the DRD, and is presumably controlling the DRD's remote control.

Super Grover

Clash!! Sonic VS Knuckles - S1-E5

Revealing mistake: Right at the end of the episode, when Amy is telling Knuckles he should apologize, Amy has two right hands.

Chapter 1 - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Anakin prepares for take-off, C3PO and R2 can be seen standing right by his fighter. But as he takes off, they can suddenly be seen standing by Padme – several floors above ground.

Snow Way Out - S1-E64

Continuity mistake: Ash suddenly has a Charmander, but his original Charmander evolved all the way to Charizard a long time ago, and we never see him get another Charmander. He couldn't have gotten another one, as we see each and every single pokemon that he catches within the show. Even in the Japanese-only episodes, he catches a bunch of Tauros, which Oak mentions when he returns to the lab.

Knever

As Time Goes By - S2-E13

Other mistake: The Sliders discover the reverse-time issue when they notice that the clock on the wall is backward. However, in other shots, clocks look normal. Look carefully at the clocks on the judge's desk as the camera pans by.

Matty Blast

Show generally

Character mistake: Tai says "And it started to snow in the middle of July" but later you find out that it takes place on August first.

Piemanmoo

Masks - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: Robin is chasing Red X. Red X throws a net of some kind onto Robin, then Robin says, "I'm fine. Get X. Go." and points toward Red X. Later, we find out that this was actually a hologram of Robin, when Starfire accidentally activates it again. However, this time, the hologram of Robin does not point after his dialogue.

The Powerpuff Girls Best Rainy Day Adventure Ever / Just Desserts - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: When Marrianne calls Harold to the table, the plant in the middle disappears as they climb on top of it.

Piemanmoo

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In "Deep Metal" (Season 3), Depth Charge fights Rampage on the beach. Throughout the whole episode, Depth Charge has four fingers. But in a shot when DC doubles over in pain to clutch his wounds, he has five fingers.

Death Defying - S2-E10

Other mistake: When Rube is searching the hard-copy (paper) archives, the young man with him opens the last box and pulls out an old "Wanted" poster with Rube's face on it. He tells Rube "This guy looks just like you." Since season 1, episode 1, we've known that Grim Reapers don't look like they did when they were alive (i.e., Millie/Un-George). Yet somehow, Rube has not changed since his life/death.

Show generally

Revealing mistake: "Alan a Dale": Lady Mildred rides side-saddle. But when Gisburne gallops away with her, some shots reveal that the stunt woman riding the fast-moving horse is astride it full straddle. Her skirt is blown back just enough to see a brief glimpse of the stunt rider's real leg on the horse's right, and the fake pair of legs in side-saddle position on its left. For just a moment, the lady appears to have three legs.
