The Mad Scientist - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When you see Perry White’s hand go to his radio to call Clark and Lois into his office, the face of the radio is seen. Then it fades to a different view of him talking to Clark and Lois, and his radio is still seen, only now the space between the top of the radio and the speaker has gotten smaller, the sides smaller, as well as the space between the speaker and the switches he was pushing.

The Mad Scientist - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Perry White has the Mad Scientist’s letter straight on his desk, but then it turns it to a diagonal angle when he reads it to Lois and Clark. Lois says that she wants to crack the case on her own and the shot pans back to Perry as he thinks about it for a moment, and this shot shows the letter still diagonal on the desk. Then Lois shouts out "Thanks Chief" and dashes off before he can respond and the image cuts to a different angle. Now suddenly the letter is straight on his desk like it was before he turned it.

The Mad Scientist - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Lois lands her plane in front of the Mad Scientist's lair early in the short. Her plane is adjacent to the door, which is white. Later as the Mad Scientist is running away before the place explodes, the door is now orange, Lois’ plane is now facing away from it, and the steps that were in front of the door are now much smaller.

Continuity mistake: When Superman throws the Mad Scientist into jail, you can see there is a window behind the scientist. As the image of him shaking the bars fades into a newspaper clip, a photo of him taken in the same position is in the newspaper. But in the photo, the window has disappeared. (00:10:00)

More quotes from Superman

Trivia: This series is where Superman first "learned" how to fly. Before this series, in the comics and radio, he was only able to jump very high and far, hence "leap tall buildings in a single bound". They decided that it just didn't look right on film and they decided to have him fly, but it's still depicted as if he has to get a jumping start.
