Hot Wheels - S4-E12

Continuity mistake: Laura meets a guy named Ted supposedly for the first time. He is selling candy bars around the neighborhood and happens to knock on the Winslow family's door. Laura goes out on a date with him. However, Ted and Laura have already had several interactions, and have already dated and broken up in previous episodes in season 4.

Suggested correction: This is because the episodes were aired out of order. "Hot Wheels" was the 2nd episode produced for season 4 (production code 447802) and aired following the 15th and 13th produced episodes.

Show generally

Question: In the mistakes section it mentions that Richie's mother, Rachel, and the Winslow's younger daughter, Judy, disappeared without a trace. Was there ever any explanation?

Answer: It is said that as Steve Urkel became a more popular character on the show, Judy became less important to the storylines, plus either her or her parents were demanding more money, causing her to be removed from the show entirely.

Answer: No. Call it "Chuck Cunningham Syndrome". A character is written off the show without any explanation at all.
