Suggested correction: This was definitely done for comedic effect. Note that the firemen in both scenes where Eric starts a fire don't even make the effort to usher bystanders out of the area to safety, and one of them slowly and needlessly chops away at doors with his axe.

Learning to Fly - S4-E22

Revealing mistake: While the girl who just broke up with her boyfriend is on the phone with the ex, she is throwing his stuff out the window. As she throws the last couple of CDs out the window, you can see the backdrop of the beach sway a little bit.


As Time Goes By - S7-E20

Revealing mistake: When the noir version of Eric is talking about the noir version of Jack as he is playing the piano, you can see Jack is just tapping his fingers against the piano keys and not actually striking them. (00:05:33)

They're Killing Us - S7-E6

Revealing mistake: When Eric picks up Cory to show him the "For He's A Jolly Good Fellow" dance, Cory screams that Eric is going to knock over the candles, upon which one of the candles on the desk is knocked over and sets fire to the curtains. If you look closely, neither Eric or Cory bump any of the candles nor the desk they are on, the candle just tips over on its own, suggesting an off-screen crew member used wire or string to pull the candle down. (00:07:18)

No Such Thing as a Sure Thing - S7-E4

Revealing mistake: When the family is eating dinner, throughout the scene you can see Jack dabbing his fork into his mashed potatoes and raising the fork to his mouth with little to no potatoes on it in order to give the illusion that he is eating. (00:03:57 - 00:05:05)

I Was a Teenage Spy - S3-E19

Revealing mistake: When Topanga emerges from the kitchen with more ice for Cory, instead of seeing the kitchen through the open doorway, you can see a wall with framed pictures, suggesting another set was there in place of the kitchen.

A Kiss is More Than a Kiss - S3-E14

Revealing mistake: When Cory puts the talking teddy bear that Topanga gave him in the trash compactor, the bear screams and Alan and Amy come down to investigate. Amy opens the trash compactor door and pulls out a bear crushed into a cube, but if you look closely, you can see the original bear still in the trash compactor unharmed.

City Slackers - S3-E11

Revealing mistake: During the montage of Eric and Frankie's game of pool, at one point Frankie hits two balls that spin towards a pocket in unison. When both balls come to a stop, you can see a dent in the green ball where a wire or other device would have been inserted to keep the balls linked together.

Rave On - S3-E8

Revealing mistake: When Amy steps into the living room and sees Reginald, you can see a plain white wall behind the door that leads into the kitchen, when you should be able to see the kitchen itself, which would suggest another set was placed there and they didn't move it for the filming of this scene.

Band on the Run - S2-E8

Revealing mistake: When Cory and Shawn are holding band auditions, if you watch the guy that is shredding on guitar, you can see that although he is moving his fingers all over the fret board, his picking hand remains motionless, showing that he isn't actually playing and the sound was added in post production.

You Light Up My Union - S7-E5

Revealing mistake: When Eric tells Cory and Shawn that the hot chocolates were $4, Cory looks up at the prices and says "that's the retail price." As the scene and the rest of the episode go on, if you pay close attention to the sign that has all the prices, hot chocolate is not an item.


Cory's Alternative Friends - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: Shawn claims his "sister, Stacey" uses the straightening stuff all the time. This is the only mention of her ever during the entire run of the show; and when Jack joins the show he is established as Shawn's only sibling.

What I Meant To Say - S3-E3

Mr. Williams: I'm here to teach you to find the truth in the media. Because there is a difference between what they say, and what is real.
Mr. Turner: That was very good. Watch this: Hunter, what did he just say?
Shawn: Something about Israel.

Janitor Dad - S4-E6

Question: When Chet and Verna are arguing about Chet getting a job, visible in the background is a painting of what I believe is an oak tree on a yellow background. Does anybody know the name and/or artist of this painting? My Grandparents used have a painting similar to it (if not the same one) and it also looks very similar to (and possibly the inspiration for) the cover art for the debut album of the band Days of the New.

Answer: I learned the answer to this one today. It is "Tree of Life" by Garé Barks.
