Seinfeld

The Understudy - S6-E24

Continuity mistake: In the episode with Bette Midler, she is injured when George tackles her at home plate. When he hits her, she is knocked into somebody. When they show her again, she is sprawled against the backstop with no one behind or even near her that seems to be hurt. George also misses home plate.

The Mom & Pop Store - S6-E8

Continuity mistake: Right after Jon Voight enters the taxi, Kramer sticks his arm in through the cab's rear side window, where Jon Voight was sitting. Jon Voight grabs the arm and bites Kramer on the wrist. As Kramer later was describing the incident to Jerry and George, he was pointing to a bite mark near his elbow.

The Gymnast - S6-E6

Continuity mistake: When George is at his girlfriend's mother's house, the plates on the table switch around. Then the order he stacks them changes. When he picks them up, the plate with the chicken is in the middle with a plate with a napkin on top, then in the kitchen, the plate with the chicken is on top.

The Understudy - S6-E24

Continuity mistake: When Elaine gets kicked out of the nail salon it is a clear day (in fact the whole episode is) then the next scene she meets J Peterman at night and in the rain. When she left the salon she is wearing a red blouse, no jacket. When she meets Peterman she is in a trench coat with a white blouse. The Peterman portion of this episode really makes no sense.

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.

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".
