Malcolm in the Middle

Pilot - S1-E1

Corrected entry: At the end of the scene where Malcolm defeats Spath, Malcolm throws some chocolate pudding on him and it is dripping off. A few seconds later in the wide shot, Spath has no chocolate on him.

Correction: The pudding is actually still there. When Malcolm throws the pudding onto him, it only lands on one side of his head. In the wide shot, his head is turned the other way. Therefore, it seems like the pudding is gone, but it isn't. Also, for about one frame, his head turns so you can see the pudding nearby the top of his head. Finally, the pudding is on his shirt still.

Pilot - S1-E1

Corrected entry: When Steve throws himself to the floor deliberately, people go to help him. When they grab him, even though he supposedly can't, he moves his left leg. It's really obvious.

Correction: He can move his legs, he is unable to walk because he only has one lung and it cannot support the exertion of that much activity.

Malcolm in the Middle mistake picture

Red Dress - S1-E2

Visible crew/equipment: When Dewey yells for Lois because the bow was put on the present, if you look to the left of Lois, you will see a crewmember kneeling down, handing Lois the red dress, who is holding a bucket of water. He quickly gets out of the camera's view. [This is on the DVD of the first season. Someone said on the audio commentary that after catching it, they deliberately left it in to see if anyone would spot it. It's still a mistake, but that's why it's there.]

Opening theme song: Yes, no, maybe, I don't know, can you repeat the question? You're not the boss of me now, You're not the boss of me now, You're not the boss of me now, and you're not so big. You're not the boss of me now, You're not the boss of me now, You're not the boss of me now, and you're not so big. Life is unfair.
