Red Dress - S1-E2

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.]

Kill Me Now - S1-E3

Audio problem: In the scene where Lorelei and Rory are sitting at a table, with Rory looking at herself in a mirror, they talk about Rory's hair. Right after this, Rory asks, "do you want something to drink?" Her mouth doesn't move at all.

Spark of Life - S5-E18

Revealing mistake: Season 5 Episode 18 "Spark of Life": when they show a closeup of the badly-burned woman during her debridement, it can be seen that even though her eyebrows and hair and, in fact, 90% of her skin has been burned away, she still has long, full eyelashes.

Revealing mistake: S9 E1 "Bully For Ben": When Ben hits the punch bag sideways, it's easy to tell that someone is controlling the punch bag as it never slows down.

The Ida Funkhouser Roadside Memorial - S6-E3

Continuity mistake: In season 4, episode 5, Marty Funkhouser is speaking at his father's testimonial. During his speech, he says that his mother died 10 years ago. However this episode is based around Funkhouser's mother's sudden death despite the fact that Marty previously claimed that she died more than 10 years earlier.

Manny Come Home - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: Simon Pegg's character shouts at Manny as he is picking up a muffin, and he slams it onto the desk, smashing it and making a large messy pile of crumbs. The shot changes, then changes back so you can see the muffin (in the same scene) and it is a perfectly formed, whole muffin with no crumbs around. Then when Fran shows up and Pegg's character leaves, the muffin is back to being a messy mound.

Revealing mistake: When Logan goes looking for Max at Jam Pony, as he starts talking to Normal there is a woman in a blue jacket with a black-and-yellow bike helmet walking behind him. She travels past the group and can be seen heading for the lockers behind OC and Sketchy. After Normal says, "I can't help you," the same woman walks behind Logan again, going the same direction.

The Invisible Man picture

Exposed - S2-E17

Continuity mistake: The establishing shot of the Agency's headquarters building zooms in on 3 tall, narrow windows recessed into a brick wall. We then cut to an interior view - of several wide, continuous windows without any recesses. They don't match the exterior windows at all.

Bus Of The Undead - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When Shake, Frylock, and Meat Wad return from Memphis, they notice the door of their house has been ripped out and knocked onto the yard (Meat Wad even makes a comment about it). But as they walk inside to Mothmonsterman, the door is back on the hinges were it should be.

Delenda Est - S3-E11

Revealing mistake: When Dylan and Tyr head to a bridge where supposedly the power source is located as well as Rommie, they start to cross the bridge. As the camera is facing Dylan and Tyr, the next scene two aliens teleport in. Rewind the video to facing Dylan and Tyr and play in slow motion. Watch the bottom portion of the screen and notice the top portion of one of the alien's head go into the camera as if the aliens walked into position for the teleportation.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In "The Owner's Suite series," when Tom Warner is talking to Gray Davis about which drink was his, and which belongs to Mr. Davis, Tom takes the straw out of the glass, blows in it, and lays it on the counter. In the next shot the straw is back in the glass.

The Best Years of Your Death - S1-E3

Plot hole: In the chapel, you can see the heads of those who tried to cross Harriet (the mad matron) preserved in formaldehyde. How did she get hold of so much of it? Wouldn't her husband or the headmaster be suspicious?

Andy Benham

Show generally

Other mistake: If you look on Disk Three, in the Features section, select "Behind the Tunes", you'll see three titles: "Too fast, too furry-ous", "Blanc Expressions", and "Merrie Melodies: Carl Stalling and Cartoon Misic". Misic? Just to be sure I unloaded the DVD player software and rebooted. Nope, still there. How did THAT get past quality control? Should be "music", in case you're wondering.

End Game (1) - S8-E7

Revealing mistake: Boyd has a video-conversation with Linda on the phone she sent him. On top of the screen you can see how long the video will last (1 minute and 3 seconds), showing it's a pre-recorded video, not an actual live conversation.

Insanity Genetic (2) - S3-E20

Character mistake: During his interrogation, Ken comments that he beat Christopher's impulsive violence out of him. But in "The Perfect Thanksgiving", he tells Erin's brother Michael that he never hit his children, choosing instead to destroy their self-esteem.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: I know that Animators re-use backgrounds but it is painfully obvious that when Keitaro and Narusegawa are leaving the exam results posting they walk in a straight line past the same "Ristorante" three times.

The '70s picture

Show generally

Factual error: When Jo-Jo tells Dexter that his father was shot down in Vietnam, he points to a picture of Dad. However, the pilot in the photo is standing between the engines of a twin-tailed fighter. Neither the Air Force, nor the Navy was employing such an aircraft over Vietnam in the late 60's or early 70's.

...And Four Stolen Hooves - S1-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When the jockey falls from the horse, there is a 2nd quick shot of the same scene, to extend it a few seconds. In the first part, the horse is running free; in the 2nd, we can see the bridle that's leading the horse forward.

Episode #1.2 - S1-E2

Other mistake: The very first word of the opening title contains an embarrassing typo, considering it's the name of the main character: It reads "Maud'Dib", instead of "Muad'Dib".

Buzz Lightyear of Star Command picture

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Every time Ty turns into the Wirewolf, his clothes are always gone but, whenever he becomes normal again, he is seen wearing the shredded remnants of his clothes. Also, at the end of the episode, when the moon is destroyed, Ty becomes human again and not only is he wearing his Star Command uniform, sans sleeves, he's also wearing his helmet which is impossible as it was smashed.
