Show generally

Continuity mistake: From the outside of the house, you can see the staircase and door are to the far left of the house. But from inside the house, you have a fireplace and the staircase to the right of the door. So you know it's not the same house they use in the show.

Ice Station Winslow - S2-E14

Revealing mistake: Carl, Eddie, and Steve are out ice fishing. At one point Carl falls through the "ice" and you can clearly see that the "ice" is made of some sort of styrofoam. It looks like the stuff used for packaging. The snow looks just as fake.

Show generally

Visible crew/equipment: In the episode where Carl is "fishy sitting" for his boss, Steve is explaining to the boss how he swallowed the fish. You can clearly see the studio lights reflected in Steve's glasses.

Scammed - S7-E21

Continuity mistake: During the scenes where they play Mortal Grandma (or whatever it's called), the characters' health bars don't change.

Add time

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Whenever the characters in this sitcom fall through the roof, they end up on the living room floor. The house is a very conventional design with a second floor and an attic, so they should end up in the attic or on the second floor.

Add time

Brain over Brawn - S3-E2

Other mistake: In this episode, they have a leak in the roof. Yet, the house is a two story house with an attic. So it should not be able to leak into the living room. Also, when Carl and Eddie go up to fix the roof, Eddie falls through the roof and ends up on the living room couch. Again, two story house with attic. Should not happen.

Add time

Show generally

We're Going to Disney World (1) - S6-E22

Continuity mistake: In an earlier episode, Steve told Carl that he has to take charter flights because he was banned from all commercial airlines. Yet, in this episode, he takes a commercial airline to Florida.

Show generally

Visible crew/equipment: In the episode where Eddie Drives his car through the front door, when they show the hole he made with the car, look at the very top of the screen, the sky stops and you can see a good two-three feet of sound stage.

Ice Station Winslow - S2-E14

Other mistake: When Eddie and Carl are out ice fishing, you can tell the background is just a wall. If you look towards the bottom, you can see the line all the way across that would make it look like a wall of scenery.

Bowl Me Over - S1-E21

Continuity mistake: When the family arrives home from the bowling alley, it is dark and pouring rain. After the kids go to bed, Carl and Harriet go to the kitchen and talk. If you look out the windows, it's daylight.

Add time

Show generally

Plot hole: The history on Urkel's Isetta is all wrong; in one episode he mentions that he paid $4 for a sunroof that he claims he bought used, however his uncle paid him $50 to take it away. In another, he claims his car has a speedometer that goes up to 30, but before it had a chalkboard. In "Hot Rods To Heck," the speedometer goes to 60 mph. The car would also screech, putter, sputter, smoke, break down, etc. but it seemed to be just fine in "Driving Carl Crazy," ''It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Urkel," and "Hot Rods To Heck."

Two-Income Family - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When Eddie comes down the stairs to ask his father again about wanting new shoes, his father says no. Eddie goes back up the stairs. Next scene, Carl walks to the kitchen, and Eddie is sitting at the counter.

Add time

Sink or Swim - S6-E8

Other mistake: When Carl is trying to teach Urkel how to swim in the pool, the pool signs say 4ft and 6ft. But if you notice, when they stand up, the water is only at their wasteline. Obviously, Carl and Urkel are not 8ft tall or anything. So They are not standing in actual 6ft of water.

Add time

Brown Bombshell - S3-E16

Character mistake: When Estelle gives her guest speech about the Tuskegee airmen she shows a slideshow. There is a photo of an airplane that she incorrectly labels as "a single engine P-47." This is not correct. The plane in the photo is a P-39 Airacobra.
