The Little Kicks - S8-E4

Factual error: In the scene where Anna is standing with George beside his father's GTO, Elaine suddenly runs in and pries her away from George. Elaine and Anna get into the cab. As the cab pulls away, the side door is marked as an NYC cab with a taxi license number, etc., but the license plate in the back is a California plate.

The Andrea Doria - S8-E10

Other mistake: The tenant board member tells George that Mr. Eldrige in apartment 8C has decided he wants the new apartment. However, the new apartment in question has a 3-digit number - 808 I believe. This indicates that the building would not have single digit numbers and letters (Such as 5E, 8C, etc.) as part of its numbering system.

Brittle Fingers

The Susie - S8-E15

Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the episode, it transitions between the Yankee ball at night and "Susie's" wake which is during the day.

The Chicken Roaster - S8-E8

Continuity mistake: When Kramer spills the tomato juice all over Jerry's walls, he grabs a light colored oven mitt to wipe it off. In one shot he wrings out the sopping mitt over the juice pitcher. When the shot changes and he tosses the mitt back onto the counter, the mitt is still the original color with no hint of red stains.

The Soul Mate - S8-E2

Continuity mistake: When George is in the boardroom, he places his briefcase on the conference table, and opens it, with the top leaning against a carafe. As George yammers on, the briefcase is closed in a couple of shots, and then open again for the rest of the scene.

The Fatigues - S8-E6

Continuity mistake: At the start of the episode, Cynthia is drinking a glass of wine. While speaking near the end of the scene, she is holding the glass in her right hand and says, "You know, guides you in your career path." The next shot is of Jerry and instantly the glass has disappeared from her hand with her right hand resting on the table. You can also see the glass is closer to her left hand now.

The Little Jerry - S8-E11

Continuity mistake: When Celia breaks out of prison and comes to George's apartment, George opens the door and starts talking with her. After George says "And you decided to pop in" the shot shows Celia but the door has now closed behind her. It would have been impossible to close without us seeing it because Celia would have had to have moved forward to close the door.

The Chicken Roaster - S8-E8

Continuity mistake: Due to the effect of the red glow on Kramer's eyes, he confuses the pitcher of tomato juice from Jerry's refrigerator for a pitcher of milk, pours it into the cereal, then gags and promptly tosses the contents of the bowl into the trash beside the fridge. In the close-up he tries to wipe some of it off the wall, but there's still a huge red mess left on the wall, in the trash, etc. In the next wide shot of Jerry and Kramer, the trash and wall are spotless.

The Soul Mate - S8-E2

Continuity mistake: George has constructed a model of the boardroom when his briefcase was destroyed. Jerry thinks George should be represented by the Yellow M&M figure. When the camera shows a close up of the figure, Jerry is holding it in a different position than the far away shots.

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 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 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.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

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 Foundation - S8-E1

Continuity mistake: While Jerry calls George from the coffee shop to tell him about the survey question, there is a shot of the waitresses and staff sitting at the tables. Behind them you can see the booths the gang usually sits at and there is a wall right next to the booth with pictures and pipes. Only problem is there are always booths next to the two near the front entrance. Even in this episode you can see the other booths as there are menus, condiments and napkins at the booths next to the regular booths.

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".
