Something Wall-Mart This Way Comes - S8-E9

Audio problem: At the end of the episode, Kyle shouts, "We have to get out of here" in Stan's voice.

Cat Orgy (1) - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: When Cartman is playing "Wild Wild West" with his toys, he has a female doll tied to a piece of wood on his bedside table. Then after his mom comes in and leaves again, Cartman starts dancing, and suddenly the doll has appeared behind him, and is also off of the wood.

Weight Gain 4000 - S1-E3

Revealing mistake: Right after Wendy tries to convince the crowd that Cartman's actual paper was 'Walden' with Cartman's name on it, Stan mentions something about Kyle's mom making tuna fish sandwiches. When he does this, you can kind of see him 'lift' off the background.

Red Man's Greed - S7-E7

Factual error: In the casino, during the roulette game, one of the spin results lands on 2 red. All roulette games have the no. 2 being black.

The Return of the Fellowship of the Ring to the Two Towers - S6-E13

Continuity mistake: When Randy and Sharon go to Butters' house to obtain the video, they are in pyjamas. The next shot in his basement they are in casual clothes.

Over Logging - S12-E6

Continuity mistake: When Sharon gives Shelley, Stan and Marvin a ticket, Shelley's ticket has the number 975, but in the next shot, the ticket now has the number 923. (00:13:45)

Casual Person

Lil' Crime Stoppers - S7-E6

Other mistake: Butters tries to get a "seamen sample", and is on it for two days straight. The mistake: You can see Butters' head in the school classroom, while he's still supposed to be in Cartman's bathroom. (00:15:30)


The Succubus (a.k.a. Chef's Mama) - S3-E3

Continuity mistake: When Stan, Kyle and Kenny go to Chef's house to tell him about Veronica, they can't talk to him so they sit down opposite Chef's parents. When Kyle says, "We have to talk to him," he and Stan have swapped places.

Chef Goes Nanners - S4-E7

Audio problem: Just before Kenny explodes from eating all of Mr. Broflovski's antacid tablets, we hear Kyle, Stan and Cartman shout out Kenny's name. One problem - Cartman isn't in the room with them. He isn't even on their debate team. (00:10:35)


Big Gay Al's Big Gay Boat Ride - S1-E4

Other mistake: You can see Token in the episode as white, not black.

Up the Down Steroid - S8-E2

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Jimmy and Timmy are training, you can see that there are two people behind them, a girl wearing a pink top with a flower on and a boy with some green glasses on. When it cuts to Jimmy and Timmy talking, and then goes back, the boy wearing the glasses has disappeared, then a few shots later the boy with glasses is back.


Scott Tenorman Must Die - S5-E4

Continuity mistake: When Kyle and Stan show up to the Chili Con Carnival, we see in the background a woman with a little girl walking towards the right and Kyle and Stan at the left walking towards Eric's booth. When Kyle and Stan get there in the next shot, the woman and the girl are still walking, but they are in the same place as they were when the shot cut. This makes Kyle and Stan able to walk very fast apparently.

Miss Teacher Bangs a Boy - S10-E10

Continuity mistake: Season 10, Episode 10 "Miss Teacher Bangs A Boy". In the scene where Cartman and his crew park the SUV outside the Hilton behind an orange car. In the next shot when Cartman and his crew are running in, the SUV is gone, only to return in the next scene. (00:18:25)

Up the Down Steroid - S8-E2

Continuity mistake: When Cartman is planning, in the shot from behind him when he's on the computer there is a cup with a red and yellow pencil in it, the red is on the right and the yellow is on the left. Yet when it goes to looking at Cartman from the other way the crayons must've swapped positions because now they are the other way around.


Up the Down Steroid - S8-E2

Continuity mistake: When Jimmy is about to use the steroids, there is a shot of the pills. Then when he uses the steroids we can see the order of them the way they were layed out on the original shot has changed. (00:05:35)


Towelie - S5-E8

Continuity mistake: When Cartman finds the cotton bud, whilst he's examining it, the controller changes positions in between shots.


Butters' Very Own Episode - S5-E14

Continuity mistake: Butters' mom is holding a knife, pointed at her shoulder, but in the very next shot it is down near the cucumber, and then goes back.

Sol Parker

Quintuplets 2000 - S4-E4

Continuity mistake: In the beginning when the boys come in to the living room, Kenny's brother and Stan's sister Shelley is standing next to him. When it cuts, as Stan's grandpa enters, they're gone.


Worldwide Recorder Concert - S3-E17

Plot hole: When Cartman writes the "brown noise" onto the score for the recorder contest, the note he writes is an ordinary E flat note. If E flat was the brown noise, wouldn't it have already been discovered years before?

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In many episodes, the word "chef" on Chef's apron goes from lower case to upper case, within the same episode and usually happens instantly between shots with no time for him to change the apron. (00:11:10)
