My Favorite Martian

Continuity mistake: When Martin shows Tim the alien gum, it's sealed under glass. But when Martin takes out the Venox 7 gum, the cover is gone with no time for it to have been taken off. (00:33:35)

Continuity mistake: When Lizzie puts the Venox 7 gum in her mouth, she starts chewing it right away. But when she takes it out of her mouth, it's in one piece. To drive the point home, when she is in monster form, there is nothing in her mouth. (01:15:15)

Factual error: The TV station in the movie is KGSC channel 10, and the building shown at the beginning for the exterior shots is in fact Santa Barbara's TV station, but it's channel 3 and its call sign is KEYT. There is no channel 10 in Santa Barbara. In fact, the only channel 10 in Southern California is in San Diego. (00:01:45 - 00:34:45)

Trivia: Ray Walston, who plays Nineenert, played the original Uncle Martin in the TV show "My Favorite Martian." In the movie he says his antennae are always giving him problems and everything is in black and white and that his gum had lost its flavor in '66. The original TV show was in black and white and its final season was in 1966.

Uncle Martin: You Earthlings don't know how lucky you are. The only water we get on Mars has to be squeezed from rocks.

Uncle Martin: Stop being such a wet blanket.
Zoot, Martin's Talking Space Suit: Hey, leave my mother out of this.

Coleye: This is similar to the Martian incident of 1963.
Armitan: Careful, stupid. Not only is that incident classified, it never happened.

Question: Is that Sean Penn in the surf shop, reprising his Spicoli role? (It's a very brief cameo - blink and you'll miss it).

Chosen answer: There is no record that I could find that indicates that he was in that movie.
