Continuity mistake: In the classroom scene where Kyle tries to be excused from class to find Ike, Cartman sets Pip on fire as he was sitting just behind him to the the left. However in the previous shots Pip had not been sitting there, some other kid was and wouldn't have had enough time between shots to move.
Continuity mistake: After Mr Garrison announces Kathie-Lee will be presenting an award for Cartman, you see the next scene in the Mayors office. There we can see cleary the curtains are red, then she looks out the window and looking in the office from outside, they are pink, but it goes in the office again and now they are back to red.

Continuity mistake: In the episode "Cat Orgy" when Sheily's boyfriend, Sklar, are playing the song for Sheily while Cartman is hanging on the coat rack you can see of what looks like a picture of Cartman's grandparents hanging on the wall. But when Sheily walks over and flings Cartman up into the ceiling for arguing with her, look at the wall, the picture is completely gone.
Other mistake: When the boys cause a mini tremor by blowing up the girls' base, the time at which it occurs is strange because when they do it, both Stan's parents are at home (even though they both have jobs), Ms. Choksondik and Mr. Mackey are at Choksondik's house getting it on (indicating that school is over) and the other teachers are still at the school.
Continuity mistake: When Eric comes running over to talk to the other 3 boys about the handicapped competition, their toy trucks are quite far apart from each other, but when it cuts from Cartman and then back to the boys, Kyle's truck has moved all the way in front of Stan's truck.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where the Cartman family and boys are seated at table, Kenny sits between Kyle and Great-Grandma. But a few shots later Kyle has to hold Great-Grandma's catheter bag, as he is now sitting next to her, and Kenny is no longer between them. However he's back between them again when the camera shows the whole table.
Character mistake: In the first scene, the Broslofskis are lighting their hanukiyah. It is the first night, and the lone non-shamash candle is on the far left side as they look at it. However, Hanukkah candles are placed in the hanukiyah starting from the right.
Continuity mistake: When Osama is video taping his message, Kenny is sitting on the left side chair but when you see the video on the news, Kenny is setting on the far right side next to the goat. The other characters except for the goat change places as well.

Continuity mistake: In the episode with the recorder concert. When Cartman and Kenny come into the hotel room, saying that they've found the "brown noise", Cartman is wearing headphones and holding another pair in his hand. Then he suddenly has two extra pairs - he gives one to Kyle and one to Stan (and is still wearing one himself).
Continuity mistake: In the scene where the ATF fires at the group of people coming out of Mr. Mackey's party, they drop dead. A few shots later when the ATF aims the big gun at the door, the bodies and bullet holes in the house are gone.
Continuity mistake: Just before Cartman sends his kitty out of the window with the photo, there's a photo frame on his desk and a "Cartman" cutout tacked above the desk, and on his bed is his frog toy and his hat. When Cartman walks over to the window with the kitty, all these items have vanished.
Continuity mistake: When the kids are shown in Token's backyard, Kevin is not present. But a few seconds later, when they are each giving their opinions about the 'cursed' video, Kevin suddenly appears on the end of the line.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
Continuity mistake: When Cartman is planning out how he's going to be retarded, 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.
Continuity mistake: When Miss Chokesondik first lectures the girls on STD's the words "Sexually Transmitted Diseases" appear on the blackboard although partially obscured as it is a narrow shot of the teacher. The view then changes to a wide shot of the blackboard and nothing is written on it. Miss Chokesondik then proceeds to write "Sexually Transmitted Diseases" on the board.
Continuity mistake: When Mr. Garrison returns to the classroom with his new face and does the posing to "Shadow Dancing," it flashes back to the students and Wendy is dressed in her normal clothes instead of the black leather she wore to impress Stan. Next time it shows her, she's back to normal.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Mr. Garrison is telling the students to to get in place for the play, Kenny is seen in the group. Despite the fact that he is supposed to be taking the star or the ceiling at that point. He is then seen seconds later climbing down the ladder with the star.

Continuity mistake: Season 10, Episode 10: "Miss Teacher Bangs A Boy". When Miss Stephenson is drawing shapes on the blackboard, she draws a circle and a square only, and then is disrupted by Cartman. At the end of the scene where she is erasing the board, a triangle is now on the board with no time to draw it.
Continuity mistake: When the town has a Conjoined Twin Myslexia Parade, and Nurse Gollum is walking; you see her right hand down as she walks, and no people in the background. Then the shot changes, and you see her right hand up waving, and people where there weren't any before.
Continuity mistake: Just after Stan returns to the forest and sees that the antichrist is born, the squirrel mentions that the antichrist will bring a thousand years of darkness. At the same moment you can see standing next to him the rabbit. Despite the fact that he was sacrificed earlier in the episode and is not seen in any of the shots before or after this.
Audio problem: After Stan does the line dance while the other team announces that "its on", and the bystanders are watching. As the blonde haired white guy says "Oh Lord its on." The Asian kid from the group is saying the exact same thing. However you don't hear his voice.
Continuity mistake: When Butters is in the hospital, you see blood start coming down his cheek, but when the shot changes from a top view to a view from his feet, there is no blood running down his cheek, which should've started showing in the shot already.
Deliberate mistake: S14 Ep13 Coon vs. Coon & Friends: in the South Park universe, Canadians are depicted as looking the same (beady eyes, stick legs, heads sliced in half). Since Justin Bieber is Canadian, he should look similar to Terrance and Philip instead of having a normal face and body.
Continuity mistake: When the handicapped people are on the bus, from a distance you can see that on the far window there is a kid nodding his head from back to front with black hair and when it goes into the bus you can see that the kid has brown hair and is nodding his head side-to-side.
Audio problem: Near the end of the episode, where the boys are standing at the bus stop and Kenny (who is in a seizure trance) starts getting attacked by rats, Cartman yells, "Hey, get away. He's not dead yet", but it doesn't sound like Cartman (the tone seems more high-pitched.).
Plot hole: When Scott Tenorman shows the other kids a video of Cartman doing his "piggy" act, the angle of the video shot shows that it could only have been taken from the place where Scott was standing when Cartman originally did it - but Scott is seen at that time to have no video camera or any way to have recorded this.
Continuity mistake: When Stan goes to see John Edwards, John Edwards's butler goes to get him. When the butler reappears (just before he pushes the buttons on the wall for the recorded voices), he reappears from the right of the archway. But John Edwards appears from the left of the archway when the voices are playing.
Audio problem: The animated Christmas movie the boys are making is really "the Spirit of Christmas", the movie Trey Parker and Matt Stone made before South Park. The dialogue recorded by the boys is the same as in the original (with a few changes, but when the film is shown later it's the original speech from "The Spirit of Christmas". You can tell by the way the voices are done, and the tone of the voices.
Continuity mistake: In the town hall meeting scene, a man says that he is "shocked and appalled" by what has happened. In the wide shot, he is sitting next to Liane Cartman. In the closeup, Liane is replaced by a woman dressed in purple. In the next wide shot, Liane is back.
Continuity mistake: When Stan threatens to cut his hand off, you can see his wrist, but just right before he does it, his wrist disapears between his glove and jacket. If his wrist was showing, he couldn't have had his hand pulled inside his jacket and he obviously couldn't have done it while holding the meat cleaver.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning when Cartman is showing the old women the hippies in the attic, there is a pair of boots and some other things behind them. It does two shots that show the things behind them, then in the last shot before they leave the attic, all the things are gone.
00:01:10 - 00:01:28Movieman123
Continuity mistake: At the toy store, Stan shows Cartman the three Chinpokomon he is buying: Lambtron, Roostor, and Shoe. When Stan's mother is at the cash register paying for his toys, though, she has a different Chinpokomon and Pingin. At the bus stop the next day, he has yet another different Chinpokomon.
Continuity mistake: When the town are protesting outside the Mayor's office, the woman at the front of the Nativity protesting group is wearing a purple shirt. A few seconds later, she is with the group against the cutting-down of Christmas trees wearing a completely different shirt (white with a Christmas tree in a red circle with a line through it).
Plot hole: How was Cartman able to afford a fairly lengthy TV ad, when he had already spent all his money on the theme park? Cartman took all his money with him to buy the theme park. After buying the park, he runs the TV ad mocking Stan and Kyle. Soon after, when he hires the security guard, he reiterates that he had spent all his money to purchase the theme park. Cartman would not be able to get a loan (he is too young), even as a co-signer. Cartman's mother is also not wealthy enough to give him the money.
Continuity mistake: In the cemetery scene where Kyle calls the emergency hotline and Stan and Cartman hold off the zombies, in the shot where Kyle's hand holding the Worcestershire Sauce is shown in close-up, his gloves are shown as green instead of white, which they are while Kyle is in his vampire costume.
Revealing mistake: When the "Asian Kid" is first introduced on the Dance Dance Revolution machine, the arrows are going up the left side (Player 1 side) of the screen, but he is obviously playing on player 2's side. To make matters even worse, the dance pattern on screen doesn't match the way he's dancing, yet the screen also shows that he's doing pretty well.
Continuity mistake: Chef's car outside Hells Pass Hospital is almost covered in snow the first time it is seen. However a car seen sitting outside the America's Most Wanted studio in South Park a few minutes later has no snow on it whatsoever.
Character mistake: Butters says that he watched "all 132 episodes" of the Simpsons; at the time this episode aired, 291 episodes of the Simpsons had been produced and aired.
Continuity mistake: There is a scene where the FBI show up to the North American Marlon Brando Look Alikes meeting by mistake. However, during a close up of the leader's (the geneticist's) face, you can see the bottom of the banner actually says "Man Boy Love", as in the other NAMBLA.
Continuity mistake: When Michael Jackson returns to Purgatory, keep an eye on Patrick Swayze. He is sitting on the left hand side of the front row. He's wearing the exact same black shirt and pants he was wearing in Dirty Dancing including the same hairstyle. About 2 shots later, his hairstyle has changed and he is now wearing a black fleece with a grey shirt and a lighter grey pants. Another 2 shots later, he is now back to the Dirty Dancing hairstyle as well as the Dirty Dancing clothes. Then when the Purgatory plane leaves, he is now wearing the other black fleece and grey shirt and lighter grey pants. Then when the Purgatory plane lands in Hell and the flight attendant says "All right, everyone, I'd like to be the first to welcome you to the gates of Hell. Unfortunately, Hell is a tow-in gate" and everyone shouts "AWWWW!", we can see Patrick Swayze has now gone back to the Dirty Dancing hairstyle and clothes.
Other mistake: In "Broadway Bro Down," when Shelly and Larry are playing Settlers of Catan, Shelly tells him, "And I got a victory point for the most roads connecting settlements." In the game, there's a two victory point bonus for the longest road, but no points for getting the most roads.
Plot hole: Stan's grandad submits the video of Kenny being hit by the train. This gets through into the final, which shocks Stan and Kyle. But shortly the clip would have had to get through to the final by another episode, so shortly Stan and Kyle wouldn't have been so surprised. The video couldn't have been submitted before, as Stans video was submitted first.
Character mistake: When Cartman goes to wrap the chain around the locker room door, there are two signs that read 'Boy's Locker Room', one on the wall pointing to the locker room and one on the locker room door. The sign has been written incorrectly; the word "boys" has been written with an apostrophe after the Y, spelling out the word "boy's." In this context, the word is supposed to be a plural, not a possessive, so the word "boy's" should just be "boys." If it were written as a plural possessive, the sign would read "boys'."

Continuity mistake: Cartman accidentally sets Fluffy the Cat on fire. When the cat is on fire, he jumps up into the air and knocks off the picture on top of the cabinet and it falls onto the floor. When Stan, Kyle, Cartman's mom and Wendy walk into the living room in the next shot, the picture has disappeared.
Continuity mistake: When Wendy finds her report paper, it has "good effort" and her grade written in red marker pen on it, with a short note underneath it also written in red pen. In the next shot the "good effort" and grade number are still on the paper but the note underneath has vanished.
Other mistake: Cartman says, "What? What happened you guys? Is Kenny okay?" The bandages only covered his eyes, not his ears, so even if he's blinded by his bandages, he still should have been able to hear Stan shouting, "Oh my God! She killed Kenny!" and Kyle's reply "You bastard!"
Continuity mistake: When Kyle slides a $10 bill into the ticket booth, the $10 bill is shown lying left to right. After a couple of cuts to where the ticket taker is saying "But this is such an important film..." the $10 bill has changed positions.
Factual error: In the flashback of Cartman watching the Ghostbusters remake, there is a list of times for other movies playing at the theatre shown in the ticket booth. The movies listed are The Accountant, Ghostbusters, The Girl on the Train and Kevin Hart: What Now? The flashback is supposed to take place in the summer, around the time the Ghostbusters remake was released. The Ghostbusters remake was released in the US in July 2016, however the movies, The Accountant, The Girl on the Train and Kevin Hart: What Now? were not released in the US until October 2016, almost three months apart from each other.

Continuity mistake: When Cartman is freaking out in P.F. Chengs, we see him from Butters' view across the table, and the red bottle with a label on is facing the camera/Butters. When the camera changes to the side, the bottle also changes with no-one touching it as the bottle is now facing the side.
Continuity mistake: When Cartman is trying to convince Butters that a meteor is heading to earth, Cartman jumps on a Terrance and Philip chair when dangling the rock in front of the telescope. The letters T and P on the chair are pretty much across from each other and above Terrance and Philip's head before and after Cartman gets on/gets off the chair. When Cartman is doing his calculations in the next shot, the letters T and P on the chair are now in a different position on the chair and if you look under the letters you can also see that Terrance and Philip's head have also changed positions.

Continuity mistake: In this episode, Cartman discovers Sharon's used tampon in the bathroom bin (which causes Sharon to buy the boys the Okama Gamesphere so that they don't mention it any more), but in season 2's "Spooky Fish", it is indicated that Sharon has started her menopause (Aunt Flo won't be visiting any more) so her periods should have stopped by this point.

Character mistake: When the class are practising the nativity, Mrs Broflovski comes in and berates Mr Garrison for casting Kyle in the part of Joseph of Arimathea, but Joseph of Arimathea wasn't the husband of Mary, Jesus' mother, but a disciple of Jesus who helped in the burial of Jesus after his crucifixion.

Continuity mistake: When Kyle tells Mr. Hankey, Autumn, Cornwallis, Amber and Simon about the $300 he, Cartman, Stan and Kenny got for the animated Christmas card, the olive stick in Autumn's martini glass is facing to the right. But when Autumn says to Mr. Hankey "That's not the only thing we've got to get working again if you know what I mean", the olive stick in the martini glass is now facing to the left. The olive stick then returns to facing to the right for the remainder of the scene.
Continuity mistake: When the perv runs into the studio (thinking it's a house), he runs into the Dateline show and runs half way down the stairs. However, when he shoots himself in the head, he falls down two stairs. But in the wide shot, he's at the bottom of the stairs. If it was in the middle of the stairs he should be one step higher.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where we first see Kyle as a tall black kid, when Kyle's dad says " Come on Kyle we have to get going" And Kyle says "Alright dad", when kyle runs to his dad, we see his basketball jersey change from an orange 4 jersey to a blue "all state 4 Colorado" jersey.
Continuity mistake: When Timmy and Jimmy are fighting (when Jimmy's kneeing Timmy in the groin), on the first hit, Timmy has the American flag on his right arm and a yellow circle on the other. On the second hit, the circle is now a yellow ring. On the the fifth hit, the right arm has the yellow ring on it, then he flips over and the American flag's on the other arm.
Plot hole: Mr Mackay says he has been working hard on the tooth decay play for 6 years. When he says why it's so important to him, he says it is because it took his father 2 years ago. The monologue exaggerates the length of time he's spent working on the play by saying it was a long time, and exaggerates how hurt he still is that his father was lost by saying it was quite recent. Perhaps the two numbers were stated the wrong way around.
00:15:35 - 00:16:45
Continuity mistake: When the agents are taking Gerald below the bridge to meet with Hillary Clinton, in the angle where Gerald says that he was set up and is not Skanthunt42, the agents grab hold of him and make their way under the bridge. As the shot ends, Gerald and the agents are about to go under the bridge, but in the next shot, they are suddenly further away from the area under the bridge. The shot cuts again and they are suddenly directly under the bridge.

Continuity mistake: In the very beginning, Butters walks in after Cartman, Kyle and Stan talk about replacing him. Butters and Cartman sit down and talk. Firstly, pay attention to the 'Cow Day' banner behind Cartman. After the camera goes from Cartman talking to Butters then back to Cartman, a letter S is now on the banner. It now reads 'Cow Days.' During the same sequence, look behind Butters. You can see Peter Panda on what looks like a toy box. After a few cuts from Cartman to Butters, now all of a sudden, Clyde Frog is next to Peter Panda on the box.
Other mistake: When the guys play Lady Gaga's "Poker Face" on Rock Band 2, there are a few problems. The TV screen shows 4 people playing (the guitar, bass, drums, and vocals) when actually 3 people are playing, the TV repeats itself on a constant loop, and there are no lyrics on the screen shown. Also the drums go from right to left: blue, yellow, red, and green. The drums are supposed to go red, yellow, blue, and green.
Continuity mistake: Cartman walks into his house and can't remember the code to turn off the alarm, so he gets a call from the security company. When the man on the phone introduces himself, the clock on the wall on the right hand side of the screen reads 2:02. Cartman then tells him he can't remember what the code to turn of the alarm is. The shot then returns to security worker and the clock on the wall now says 12:37. Cartman then tells him what the security catchphrase might be and he says the catchphrase might be "Kyle is a no good dirty Jew" and "Kyle is a no good lying Jew". The shot then returns to the security worker who says he has something different, when this happens the time on the clock returns to 2:02 for the remainder of the scene.

Plot hole: When Cartman is 'confessing his love' to Kyle at the basketball game, the crowd all turn to Kyle and say "Awww" to him. By the time the crowd turn to Kyle, all Cartman had said was that he loves Kyle. No image or live footage of Kyle was ever shown by that point, so how would anyone in the crowd have known who Kyle was or where he was even sitting?

Continuity mistake: In the opening titles (for series one, two and three), Cartman, Stan, Kyle and Kenny get on the school bus. Stan is on the fifth row, Cartman is on the sixth row, Kyle is on the seventh row and Kenny is on the eighth row and there are another two rows behind them. But in the shot after Cartman says "Everybody day and night! People shouting howdy neighbor!", Kenny is now on the back row.
