A Fish Out of Water - S3-E10

Factual error: When Meg and Lois are in the back of a police car they escape by opening the back doors and getting away. The rear doors of a police car can only open from the outside, for obvious reasons and this escape could not be possible.

Screwed The Pooch - S3-E13

Continuity mistake: At the adult education centre we see an establishing shot showing the building and that it is night time. When we see the classroom there is beautiful sunshine beaming in through the window. (00:04:20)

Death Lives - S3-E6

Other mistake: When Peter is dumped into the sea, a ship appears on the right hand side of the screen. However, the ship just appears randomly, it doesn't sail in to the shot, one frame its open water and the next frame it's there. (00:10:20)

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

Continuity mistake: At the mall Stewie is wearing a pair of mustard color fingerless mittens, and the problem occurs while Stewie is sitting on Santa's lap. When Stewie first mentions plutonium and being a good boy, Stewie's hands show all of his fingers which means he's mittenless, but the color of his hands is the same color as his mittens. Then, when Santa tells Stewie to wrap it up, Stewie is wearing his mustard color mittens, then his mustard color fingers return again.

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

Continuity mistake: While Lois is driving her family home from the mall, the animation process did not properly color Lois during the car ride. First, she's wearing white gloves, but in one shot both of her hands are bare on the steering wheel. Second, Lois is wearing a green coat and white scarf around her neck, but in the shot facing the town's tree through the windshield, her scarf/collar is red (her Santa hat has a red narrow tip with a white pom-pom).

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

Continuity mistake: When Lois reminds Peter to go get the tree, there's a wreath with a bow hanging on the wall between the two pictures behind the couch, but when Lois convinces Peter with the promise of a new VCR that wreath has vanished, then it reappears and disappears again when Peter returns with the tree. Also, the plate of cookies that are on the arm of the couch seem to vanish as well.

When You Wish Upon a Weinstein - S3-E22

Peter Griffin: You better watch who you're calling a child Lois. Because if I'm a child then you know what that makes you? A paedophile, and I'll be damned if I'm gonna stand here and be lectured by a pervert.

He's Too Sexy for His Fat - S2-E17

Trivia: In the shot of the Quahog Pest Control building you see a blue termite (Nibbles Woodaway) on the building. New England Pest Control in Providence, Rhode Island has the same bug on top of its building.

Brian Sings & Swings - S4-E19

Question: In this episode Meg pretends to be a lesbian, when she calls herself a 'mega lesbian' it shows four other 'mega lesbians' singing something on deep voices. What song are they singing? Is it a real song?


Chosen answer: It's a real song called "Elvira". Originally by Dallas Fraizer in '66, however, this version seems to be the Oak Ridge Boys cover version. However, the mega lesbians skip the verse and just sing the chorus after the opening line.
