Mind over Murder - S1-E4

Other mistake: When Lois is saying that she'll make a nice romantic dinner, Chris's picture on the wall not only looks completely different, but he's wearing glasses. (00:08:00)


Petarded - S4-E6

Continuity mistake: In the episode "Petarded", when Peter is in court, when he says he is going to call "the ghost that never lies" to the stand, only Stewie is visible over Peter's shoulder. But when Peter says "But only I can see him", Meg is also visible over his shoulder.

Blind Ambition - S4-E3

Other mistake: Right at the start when you get an aerial shot of the bowling alley, there is one that gets a strike. The machine sweeps them away, but the pins still remain. (00:00:05)

Death Has a Shadow - S1-E1

Deliberate mistake: When Stewie demands his device, he says, "Like a box of active grenades," and she gives it back. The pins weren't pulled, yet he runs and it explodes. (00:18:00)

Family Guy Viewer Mail #1 - S3-E21

Continuity mistake: When Lois picks up the fridge there is nothing stuck to the fridge but when she puts it down there is a note stuck to it.


Jungle Love - S4-E13

Continuity mistake: In series 4 episode 13 Jungle Love: When the family are escaping the tribespeople, Chris is wearing the tribal clothing. When they jump in the plane there is a brief far-off shot of Chris wearing his usual cap and t-shirt. In a close up shot moments later, he is wearing the tribal gear again.

Long John Peter - S6-E13

Continuity mistake: The English guy's car is full of crates when we first see it and when his roof is blown off but after Peter and a crewman have boarded, there are suddenly barrels in the car too.

Death Has a Shadow - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: The welfare cheque that Lois gets from the postal worker is addressed: 'Peter Griffin, 72 Spooner St, Quahog, RI' but the Griffins live at 31 Spooner St. every other time their address is mentioned.


PTV - S4-E14

Continuity mistake: When Chris is saying "I'm not supposed to tell Mom cos she'll just bitch about it" there is a door behind Lois with a box next to it. In the next shot there is a smaller box next to that box which was not there before.

Brian in Love - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: After Lois accuses Stewie of peeing on the carpet, he asks her to bend down and slaps her with a glove. The glove remains in his hand in that cut, is still there when there is a wide shot of Peter, Stewie, Lois and Brian (you can just see it next to his trousers in his hand), but when it cuts back to Stewie and he starts on about "the outrages" etc, it is gone (the cut is instant, no time for him to put it back in his pocket). A common error, this one just struck me as strange, because the sandwich Stewie threw at Lois is there the entire scene. (00:03:35)

A Very Special Family Guy Freakin' Christmas - S3-E16

Other mistake: When Quagmire is sticking his body out of the car door and yelling "Whooooooa! Whoooooooa!", look at the person in the back seat. It certainly isn't Joe, who was there in the previous shot, in fact it looks like another Quagmire. (00:05:30)

Chitty Chitty Death Bang - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Meg introduces Jennifer to Lois, she is, as usual, wearing her glasses. However, right when Jennifer says, "Bye Meg," Meg is seen in the shot, and her glasses have disappeared. Her glasses are back on in the next shot.

Peter, Peter, Caviar Eater - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Lois goes down to the room where Peter is dancing, Peter is wearing blue pants. After he walks over to the door and greets her, he still has blue pants. The next shot of Lois and Peter dancing has him wearing his normal green pants, but after that it goes back to blue pants for the rest of the scene. (00:11:35)

The Father, The Son, and The Holy Fonz - S4-E18

Continuity mistake: When Stewie is in the sterile glass cage, Lois is changing his diaper with rubber gloves built into one of the panels (like Homer Simpson's in the opening credits). In previous and subsequent shots, however, the panel is solid glass, with no gloves. (Series 4: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Fonz).

Blind Ambition - S4-E3

Continuity mistake: When Tom Tucker is reporting about Peter saving Horace, his angle in relation to the bar changes. (00:19:00)

Death Is a Bitch - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: When Karen Black is first shown, her blue uniform is sleeveless, showing her white shirtsleeves. After a cut to the "Dawson's Creek" kids, Peter says "It was a movie in the seventies," and Black's outfit has sleeves. Later, when she is helping people off the plane, her uniform once again is sleeveless.


Breaking Out Is Hard to Do - S4-E9

Continuity mistake: When the Griffins are discovered by Joe, Peter switches from his Sumo outfit to his regular outfit in a matter of seconds.
