Stewie, Chris & Brian's Excellent Adventure - S13-E7

Factual error: They all go back to 1912 in London. When Stewie gives a street performer money, Brian informs him that the person wasn't Charlie Chaplin but in fact, Adolf Hitler, and he was right. Back in 1912, Hitler was living in Vienna, Austria and was poor after failing to get into art school. He didn't actually leave the country until 1913 when he moved to Munich, Germany. (00:10:20)

Yug Ylimaf - S11-E4

Plot hole: Bonnie had Susie in season 7. In this episode they go back in time before Susie was born, Stewie is a year older than Susie so it makes no sense why he would be re born again. He's always a year old throughout the entire series.

Suggested correction: They didn't go back in time. When the time machine broke, time started moving backwards. When Stewie saw Bonnie was pregnant, he realised events were being undone, which means he would soon be unborn. Time kept moving backwards until Stewie was unborn. When Brian fixed the machine, time went forward and Stewie was born (which would be a year before Susie was born).

Trans-Fat - S17-E13

Continuity mistake: When Joe eats ice-cream on a mini batting helmet during the football match, some ice-cream is visible fallen on the ground just before the drink seller comes. In the next shot it disappears. (00:02:40 - 00:03:01)

Underage Peter - S14-E14

Plot hole: They're in the Clam complaining that they can't drink when they make the revelation that Brian can because he's technically 56. But Quagmire should be able to drink, as in a much earlier episode, he's revealed to be over 60.

Road to Germany - S7-E3

Continuity mistake: After getting the uranium, Stewie places it in the time pad and then puts the pad in his jacket pocket. After being confronted by Hitler who promises to spare them if they sing a musical number, Mort interrupts them, and it's seen that he is now standing on the time pad.

Baby Not On Board - S7-E4

Plot hole: Stewie gets out of the car seat and goes back to bed, leaving the blanket at the bottom of the seat. When they get to New York, Lois goes to get him out and realises he's gone. But when they started the trip the blanket was covering the entire seat to make it look like Stewie was still in it. So who ever "covered" him up knew he wasn't in the seat before they set off.

The Cleveland-Loretta Quagmire - S4-E5

Continuity mistake: While the Griffin family are at the Heimlich maneuver class, there is a scene where Stewie is talking to a doll and putting his clothes on. You can see that he has no shoes on but when he sticks his feet through the pant leg holes, shoes suddenly come out of the pants and he has his shoes on. (00:04:10)

And Then There Were Fewer - S9-E1

Continuity mistake: When everyone is in the dining room at the dinner table, the order of where everyone sits changes between shots. In all moments where it shows everyone sitting, the order is Priscilla, Derek, Jillian, Mort, Muriel, and Carl. But in one shot, the order is Priscilla, Derek, Jillian, Muriel, Mort, Carl.

From Method to Madness - S3-E18

Continuity mistake: While Stewie and Olivia are performing, Olivia is wearing a light purple dress. After the performance, when Stewie and Olivia are sitting on the piano talking to their teacher, Olivia's dress and hair bow changes from purple to blue in between shots. She is also wearing dark red lipstick instead of none at all.

DaBoom - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: In the flashback when Peter fights Ernie the Giant Chicken, Peter gets knocked off the top of an eighteen wheeler and grabs the second rung at the bottom of the truck's ladder. But when the truck driver sees the pair in his side view mirror, Peter is hanging off the top of the ladder. (00:02:00)

Death Has a Shadow - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Stewie tries to get his mind control device back from the kitchen. The cupboard door is open when he falls. In the very next shot, Lois turns the light on in the kitchen, and we see the door has closed without anyone touching it. It is open again after that. (00:09:50)

Lois: Hello?
Peter: I can't take the trash out today, I'm working late at the office.
Lois: The caller ID says you're calling from the kitchen. In fact I can see you.
Peter: [Edging sideways.] OK, can you see me now?
Lois: No.
Peter: Now I am at the office.

Answer: Mort is Jewish, and Walt Disney was said to be antisemitic. So it would make sense in a Disney universe all the inhabitants would share his supposed beliefs.
