The Baby Shower - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: Kramer tries to stop Jerry from running towards the door. "Agent Stone" in the following shot has his badge in the left hand (was in the right earlier) and reaches with the right for his gun under The Jacket. But there's another shot, with cornflakes and other things being blown up by bullets, when Stone is still showing his ID in the right hand. (00:09:00)

The Baby Shower - S2-E10

Revealing mistake: In the sequence when he gets shot by the FBI agents for stealing cable, Jerry Seinfeld is wearing ear buds, quite visible when he collapses by the door. Evidently the stage props even loaded with blanks were too loud for his taste. (00:09:00)

The Baby Shower - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: In the shot when she protests that the husband with the chipper name is only a Kennedy by marriage, Elaine is holding a paper towel, not quite in continuity with what comes before and after. (00:01:35)

The Baby Shower - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: Reminiscing about the incident with the performance artist, George says that she was aiming at him with the chocolate syrup "like she was putting out a fire." Notice Jerry has nothing in hand. Next shot and he's clenching a paper tissue. (00:02:40)

The Deal - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: Jerry says no to the music box, and to the 'frame with a picture of another guy in it." Both times the same person with a blue trenchcoat, thin hair and glasses walks outside the gift store passing in front of the window. (00:14:50)

The Statue - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: Jerry is on the phone with Rava's boyfriend to ask him about The Statue. In the close-up he is holding the cordless in his left hand, but the same hand is on his hip when he is in the background with all the others crowding the landline to listen. (00:12:30)

The Apartment - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: When Jerry's neighbours are arguing in the corridor about sponge size, Harold is holding the tiny scourer in different ways between shot (in a different spot and with his fingers suddenly stretched out). (00:08:40)

The Apartment - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: At Monk's, Jerry points at the woman feeding corned beef hash to her baby. There's an angle with the camera roughly behind Jerry Seinfeld's shoulder; the continuity here is sloppy, with George having his hand down flat on the table instead of with the fingers laced together with the other, and he has his right leg crossed and not the left. Just few seconds later he asks Jerry if he remembers his friend from Detroit, and he is pointing his left index finger at Jerry across the table instead, again, of having his hands close together. (00:07:30)

The Phone Message - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: During the scene with Donna and the wine bottle, besides continuity errors with cork and glasses position already mentioned in this page, the level of wine itself changes; Jerry poured wine to Donna, but her glass is empty in some shots, and before Kramer's arrival both are full, only to become empty in the last shot. (00:12:30 - 00:14:00)

The Phone Message - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: George is talking about the phone call; when he says "I don't like to go too long before I ask them out", the waitress with the blue cardigan is passing behind him. At the cut, she's already to the other side of the counter. (00:02:05)

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?

The Robbery - S1-E2

Trivia: Michael Richards invented his patented Kramer entrance in this episode on accident. He missed his cue and thought he would make up for lost time.

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".
