Seinfeld

The Wife - S5-E17

Continuity mistake: In the episode with Courtney Cox, when she and Jerry are arguing over a can opener, a bottle of beer keeps changing positions whenever they cut back to Jerry.

The Bookstore - S9-E17

Revealing mistake: When Kramer at the start of the episode puts the hose on the kitchen tap, he jerks the hose as it's not long enough to reach The Fire. If you look at the sink when Kramer does this, it comes easily out of its position on the counter top.

The Muffin Tops - S8-E21

Continuity mistake: In the final scene where Newman is going to eat the bag of muffin stumps, Newman removes the bottles of milk and then takes a bite out of his muffin. He then takes a drink from the glass but he never filled the glass with milk in the first place.

The Abstinence - S8-E9

Continuity mistake: In one scene George is solving a Rubik's cube in Jerry's apartment. When he leaves, he places the cube on Jerry's kitchen counter, and it is in the middle of the counter with the red color facing out. In the very next shot, it is moved much closer to the far edge of the counter and the color facing out has changed.

The Face Painter - S6-E23

Factual error: The Devils-Rangers game is at Madison Square Garden, but when the Devils score, a siren goes off. That would only occur in the event of a Rangers goal.

The Soup - S6-E7

Factual error: In this episode, after accepting a free Armani suit from Kenny Bania, Bania insists that Jerry repay him by taking him to a nice restaurant. Jerry takes Bania to Mendy's, a Glatt kosher NYC deli. During the ordering process Bania suggests, "Oh, get the swordfish. Best swordfish in the city. The best, Jerry." Swordfish is considered an unkosher fish by Glatt kosher standards since it does not have scales, one of the essential criteria. It would therefore never be served at Mendy's.

The Airport - S4-E12

Factual error: In the episode where Jerry is upgraded to first class while Elaine struggles in coach, the scene changes to show a plane flying with the colors of Southwest Airlines, and you can make out the name "Southwest" written on the tail if you pause as it's landing. Anyone who has flown them knows that there is no first class on Southwest.

The Money - S8-E12

Continuity mistake: We find out George's parents sleep in separate beds. His father says "Thirty years ago we came to an agreement. It was the only way I could get some rest. Estelle's got The Jimmy arms." This contradicts S5E10, "The Cigar Store Indian", when George's parents come back from their trip, Estelle finds a condom wrapper in "our bed." Also Frank asks George, "You were having sex on our bed?", and Estelle follows by saying, "Who told you you could have sex in our bed?!" (00:16:50)

The Junior Mint - S4-E20

Audio problem: As the doctor is explaining how he thinks there were other factors at play to stave off the infection, when he says "something perhaps..." his mouth/lips do not move.

The Fix-Up - S3-E16

Character mistake: George calls Jerry to tell him about sex with Cynthia. He starts by saying he just got home, which Jerry repeats. A few lines later, George confirms they had sex at his own apartment. Why would he be getting home from his own apartment? (00:13:50)

The Little Kicks - S8-E4

Factual error: When George tells Jerry about his date with Anna, he says he is picking her up in his father's 1968 GTO, but the car he is leaning on in the park is a 1967 GTO, which has a completely different body style.

Suggested correction: We could easy chalk this up to George simply being wrong, which he likely is, given that he doesn't usually drive the car or try to act like a badass, and he's just faking for a woman.

The Little Jerry - S8-E11

Factual error: On the bottom of all checks, they have the routing number, followed by the account number, followed by a repeat of the check number found in the top right corner. When we see Jerry's bounced check, "1246" isn't seen after the account number.

The Jimmy - S6-E19

Jimmy: Oh yeah, Jimmy's ready. Check Jimmy out. Jimmy's got some new moves. [Slips and falls from the water.] Jimmy's down.

Trivia: No matter who the characters in Seinfeld call, they never have to look up the phone number in the phone book. They have the phone numbers to every restaurant, hotel, and business memorised.

More trivia for Seinfeld

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".
