Malcolm in the Middle

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Episode 16 Season 6 "No Motorcycles." Francis calls Hal out to the driveway where two motorcycles are parked. In the first camera shot the motorcycles are parked side by side with the front wheels turned in the same direction. All subsequent shots of the motorcycles in the driveway show them in a different position, one angled behind the other, with the front wheels turned in opposite directions.

Continuity mistake: In the Season 5 Episode, Goodbye Kitty, after Stevie becomes catatonic, a wrapper from a chocolate bar lands on his face, covering his glasses. The shot cuts and it's on his shoulder and then cuts again and it's on his face again.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In the episode where Lois takes revenge on the four girls who pranked Reese, Lois and Reese use a makeshift catapult to launch paint balloons at one of the girls and her date. The first balloon hits the girl, covering her left shoulder with pink paint. In the shot where her date gets hit with a balloon, her shoulder is no longer covered in paint. Some of the paint blotches change size and shape on both her and her date throughout this scene as well.

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.
