Cat Orgy (1) - S3-E7

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.


Worldwide Recorder Concert - S3-E17

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).

Cat Orgy (1) - S3-E7

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.

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.

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?

Cat Orgy (1) - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: When Cartman gets his kitty the catnip from under the kitchen sink, a yellow plate rack full of plates appears on the worktop next to the sink that wasn't there in previous shots.

Cat Orgy (1) - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: When Shelley and Skyler are in the kitchen, there's a plate on the table with pizza crusts on it. Between closeups and wide shots the crusts continually switch from the left to the right side.

Chinpokomon - S3-E11

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.).

Consider how selfish Cartman is. I think he would make sure of the exact number of days that his mother has left to buy him Christmas presents.

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

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!"


Cat Orgy (1) - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: When Shelly and Skyler are on the couch kissing, Skyler's guitar is on the couch. Then Cartman quickly snaps a picture of them, and then only a second later, the guitar is suddenly on the floor without enough time for it to be moved.

Show generally

Question: Forgot the episode and the season, but does Mark, the kid that gets home schooled and ends up beating Kyle, ever show up in later episodes?

Answer: He appears in at least 5 other episodes, but usually just as a background character. He can be seen at Cartman's party in "Immaginationland". He was also one of the kids trying out to replace Butters in the "Professor Chaos" episode.
