7 mistakes in show generally

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.

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.

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.

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.

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."
