Season 1 generally

Continuity mistake: Jerry's apartment in the first episode was on the fourth floor. Then in the next bunch of episodes it was 3A. It then changes to 5A for the remainder of the series.

The Stakeout - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: At the video store, when Jerry shows Elaine the adult video, he holds it with both hands with his right hand fingers under the box. In the next shot, he's holding it with only one hand, with his right hand holding it by the side.

Suggested correction: You can see lights reflected on the coffee pots, but there is nothing to indicate they are stage lights as opposed to the diner's lighting.

The Stock Tip - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: Up in Vermont, Jerry is beginning to have a rather tense conversation with Vanessa. In the close-up after the watch comment (when he is thinking of the delightful drive home ahead) Seinfeld is all smiles, but in the shot before and after he is staring with a tense expression.

The Stock Tip - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: Elaine comes out of the bathroom sniffling and with a big stripe of toilet paper. She rubs her left side of the nose when she asks "Didn't work, huh?" In the next shot with George answering with a burst of nervous laughter, Elaine's hand is in a different position, and George himself is clutching a tissue to his chest. (00:16:25)

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)

Continuity mistake: During the initial conversation, George keeps playing with the paper sleeve of a straw in certain shots, while his hand is in another position in the reverse shots (noticeable for instance when he says "Guys with cats...I don't know..." (00:02:30)

Continuity mistake: Jerry is being grumpy on The Couch with his friends for giving up The Apartment, arms crossed. Notice his right sleeve, down till the wrist.

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