Coon vs. Coon and Friends - S14-E13

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.

Suggested correction: I don't see how this is a mistake, deliberate or otherwise. While the creators of the show have established that to be the appearance for Canadian characters, they are well within their rights to invoke artistic license whenever they see fit. Is it also a mistake that Mel Gibson and Saddam Hussein have photorealistic faces when the majority of other characters have been established as having cartoon faces?

Weight Gain 4000 - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Mr. Garrison is carrying around his gun, it is not the wood finished gun with the wood colored hand grip that he bought, it was the other one that had the grey hand grip. (00:14:20)

Suggested correction: He says he will have it (wood finish) then it shows him walking through town. Plenty of time for him to change his mind again.

Perhaps, but later when Stan and Wendy interrupt him, his gun exhibits wood furniture again. Unless he purchased both, some error has been made here.

Simpsons Already Did It - S6-E7

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.

Suggested correction: Butters is always shown as being a bit dim and slow. As a kid it's easy for him to make a mistake in thinking that there was only 132 episodes.

That's why it's called a "character mistake"; also, Butters is certainly naive, but he's hardly what I would call "dim and slow."

Korn's Groovy Pirate Ghost Mystery - S3-E10

Character mistake: Cartman tells his mother that there are only 72 shopping days left until Christmas. Christmas is 55 days after Halloween.

Suggested correction: And Cartman is a kid who gets things wrong regularly.

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.

Yes but in the Cow Days episode, he admits he sucks at maths.

Over Logging - S12-E6

Factual error: Kyle says he has to log on before school. The next shot shows "Monday 8 days later." 8 days before is a Sunday. (00:04:45)

Margaritaville - S13-E3

Question: Can someone explain the subplot with the Margaritaville and Stan going to a bunch of places trying to return it? It's really confusing. And this sounds stupid, but in a recession, wouldn't spending money be bad?

Answer: Essentially Stan was trying to return the blender that his dad, Randy, had bought because he knew his parents couldn't afford the extra debt. The blender, which represented mortgage-backed securities, had been bought on payment plan, meaning Randy had to make monthly payments, with interest, on something that wasn't essential. The episode represented the recession that was occurring at the time, including the housing bubble and mortgage crisis going on, so there's a lot going on. However, the payment plan (which is to say the debt) had been sold to another company by the store that sold Randy the blender. (To explain why, because of the recession, the store needed cash on hand, and they would only be getting a little money each month, if Randy paid his bill. So the store sells the debt to a company who gives the store the money upfront. Think of the J.G. Wentworth commercials, "I have a structured settlement, but I need cash now".) Because the store sold the debt, in ridiculous fashion, Stan had to return the blender to the company that bought the debt, although they too sold the debt to another company. Finally he gets to the U.S. treasury who tells him his blender is worth $90 trillion (again a ridiculous exaggeration) meaning that the debt owed is greater than the product is worth and to deride the way government agencies set up their budgets (which requires much more complex economic lessons). Kyle's whole point was people shouldn't fear the economy or see it as a vengeful being, but continue to spend and live as they normally do. Economically speaking, not spending money during a recession creates a longer lasting recession, and to solve a recession, people should spend money, although people and businesses shouldn't acquire debt during a recession because interest rates are higher. But on a personal level, individuals are fearful of losing their jobs during a recession, so they save money in case that should happen. But again, this is complex economics lesson.
