April Fools - S5-E18

New this month Plot hole: As Mama tells Iola about the April Fools' jokes the family has played on her over the years, Iola expresses surprise. Considering Iola has been Mama's friend for years and is constantly at the Harper house, it seems impossible that Iola had never heard of any of the April Fools' pranks.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In the first two seasons, there are 3 bedrooms upstairs: Mama's, Fran's, and Sonja's. But after Buzz and Sonja move out and Aunt Fran dies, Bubba moves in and takes Aunt Fran's room. Vinton and Naomi are still in the basement complaining that they wanted Fran's room. However, originally there was another room upstairs, Sonja's room, that disappeared.

Baby Talk - S5-E1

Revealing mistake: When Iola's quilt shrinks in the dryer at the end of the episode, the individual squares do not shrink. Instead, there are simply fewer of them in each direction.

What a Dump - S5-E11

Character mistake: When it is announced that Mama's block has been chosen for the new city dump, Iola states that she would have to move too. Being that Iola lives across the street she does not live on the same block as Mama and therefore would not be affected.

Show generally

Plot hole: It is well known that Vint had two kids in the opening of Mama's Family, but later on, Vint and Naomi try to conceive and are having trouble. They all assume that it is Vint, but he already has two kids and this was never mentioned during the time they were trying.

Ladies Choice - S5-E2

Visible crew/equipment: When Iola is walking across the stage to her podium for the debate, from her perspective you can see the edge of the set and some lights.

Now Hear This - S6-E4

Plot hole: Vinton demonstrates the intercom with the instruction to push a button to talk but throughout the episode, they listen in on each other. This would not be possible if the person (s) being listening on is not holding the button to activate the mike.

Birthright - S3-E18

Continuity mistake: In this episode Vint says he was born on April 23. But in the lottery episode when Mama picks numbers with Lola she says Vint was born in March.

Child's Play - S4-E8

Continuity mistake: When Eugene is playing with the ball on a stick it changes from being predominately purple to blue and red just before he pulls the string off. The cup size changes too. (00:11:05)

Grandma USA - S3-E12

Plot hole: Thelma never mentions the song name she will sing at the pageant, as she had no idea she needed a talent, thus she couldn't tell them ahead of time, but they still start to play the right one for her.
