Continuity mistake: When Fred, Barney, Pebbles, Bamm-Bamm, Dino and Hoppy are watching "Superstone" on the TV, you can see that Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm are right in front of Barney, but in the close-up of the two, Barney is nowhere in sight.

Factual error: In "The State Vs. Chip Douglas", Ernie finds his missing 1914-D penny when it falls out of his pocket. A close-up shows an Indian head penny lying on the floor. The problem is that Indian head pennies were not minted after 1909.
