Only Fools and Horses

Only Fools and Horses (1981)

1 corrected entry in The Frog's Legacy

The Frog's Legacy - S99-E6

Corrected entry: When Del is first told about the gold bullion (and the character Freddy the Frog) by Trigger's Aunty, Del says he has never heard of him or his reputation. Yet in the final episode, "If They Could See Us Now," Del is seen on a photograph with Freddy the frog and the rest of the gang on a jolly boys' outing, so he surely would have known him. Also after Rodney finds out that Freddy is his real father, he asks Del if he was anything like him and Del goes on to explain what kind of person Freddy was, but how did he know if he never knew him?

Correction: This plot hole is explained in "Rock And Chips", the 2010 prequel to "Only Fools And Horses" set in 1960.Freddy "The Frog" Robdal and Del Boy were indeed both on the first Jolly Boy's Outing to Margate but throughout the entire pilot episode, Del is unaware of who Freddy is and they are never introduced to each other. Even on the bus, Del is happy to lark around with his mates whilst Freddy and "Jelly" Kelly sit at the front looking distinctly unimpressed and not interacting with anyone. It is reasonable to assume that Del would not be interested in knowing Freddy because of their significant cultural (and age) differences as portrayed in "Rock And Chips".After the events of "The Frog's Legacy", Del would have been aware of Freddy's reputation (and may even have recognised him from Rodney's photo despite not knowing his name when it would've been taken) because Renee explained who he was in depth during "The Frog's Legacy".

Mistakes

At the very beginning of the episode, Leonard Pearce is waiting for the cue for his character to start looking for his teeth. He's standing in the living room, between his room and Del and Rodney's room.
