Superman

The Mad Scientist - S1-E1

Plot hole: The Mad Scientist's lair is on the top of a tall pointy mountain with no real flat areas. But Lois is somehow able to land her 1930's-1940's era propeller plane on the top of this mountain with no runways or flats for her to come to a stop on from flying. Which is physically impossible.

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.

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.
