Stasis Leak - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: When Lister walks through the Stasis Leak for the first time, his hands are up by his face and his locks are in front of his shoulders. In the next shot from the mirror, his arms are lowered and his locks are only over his right shoulder. (00:09:30)

Stasis Leak - S2-E4

Revealing mistake: At The End of the episode when the future Lister closes the door on the Cat and Lister, you can see the partial editing out of Lister and the Cat as the door closes. As this happens, Lister and the Cat disappear before the door has passed them. (00:26:50)

Nanarchy - S7-E8

Lister: What, they fixed your core program and then decided they'd be better off without you?
Holly: Yeah, it was shortly after they met me.

Meltdown - S4-E6

Trivia: "Meltdown" was originally planned to be the first episode of Series IV of Red Dwarf. However, the militaristic tone of this episode - and in particular Dave Lister's strident anti-war speech near The End of the episode - meant it fell foul of the BBC censors. The original planned transmission date (Feb 14 1991) coincided with the outbreak of "Operation Desert Storm" - the Gulf War...and the BBC felt that an "anti-war" episode of Red Dwarf would be inappropriate for a country at war with Iraq.

More trivia for Red Dwarf

Answer: Presumably he does, but it's never been used in any material related to the show. He is the only Cat left (as shown in Series 1), so even if he had once had a name, nobody would know it.

Moose

Answer: In the book, the Cat finds the concept of a name confusing, as he's convinced he's the center of the universe and the idea that someone wouldn't know who he was is baffling.
