Factual error: After some tinkering with a TV set and a mirror, Calvin Webber finds that he can watch a TV show in reverse image. On the screen is the opening of "The Honeymooners" showing the cast members' names superimposed on a picture of the moon, with Jackie Gleason's face. But the picture is in color, mostly blue and off-white, while the actual "Honeymooners" series was filmed in black-and-white.
