The Stock Tip - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: Kramer runs off to meet the girl he just spotted through the binoculars, and George walks through the door and crashes on The Couch. The pillow is straight-ish, very angled and straight again during the conversation, with George's hand changing position between shots. (00:15:45)

The Stock Tip - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: The scene with Elaine on The Couch plotting the demise of the cats begins with a nasal spray on the kitchen counter. There's no trace of it after that initial shot, and it reappears only when Elaine comes closer for her cup of coffee. (00:13:00)

The Stock Tip - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: Jerry says that he wants to suggest to his current girlfriend, Vanessa, to go away for a couple days. George starts saying "No no no" and before the cut he raises his arm and lowers his head as to express concern. But in the new shot there's no trace of that change in posture. (00:02:45)

The Voice - S9-E2

Kramer: They're redoing the Cloud Club.
Jerry: Oh, that restaurant on top of the Chrysler Building? Yeah, that's a good idea.
Kramer: Of course it is. It's my idea.
Jerry: Which part? The renovating the restaurant you don't own part, or the spending the two hundred million you don't have part?

Answer: Composer Jonathan Wolff used a synthesizer, although in seasons 7-9, a real bass is used in addition. Wolff also recorded himself making hundreds of mouth noises, pops, and slaps to add to the synthesized bass licks so that each episode has a different theme. The only real "back-story" is Jerry Seinfeld was having trouble coming up with a theme song and talked to a friend who happened to know Wolff. They wanted to avoid that cheesy late 80's sit-com theme song and Wolff came up with what we enjoy now. Jonathan Wolff has also talked about this further in interviews, recently Reed Dunela interviewed him, so for a fuller account of his story; check out "The Wolff of 116th street".
