Futurama

Fry and the Slurm Factory - S2-E4

Plot hole: Fry, Leela, and Bender all went downward several feet when the slurm river goes through the pipe, yet are still level with the fake slurm factory that they were in before.

My Three Suns - S1-E7

Plot hole: Whenever Leela arrives and everyone starts beating up Fry to make him cry out the emperor, it shows Dr. Zoidberg pinching his leg and later, sitting next to the wall, tired out with Bender and Amy. However, if he's there, then what is keeping the Trisolians from coming through the hole in the door that Zoidberg was plugging with his claw? (00:19:40)

A Big Piece of Garbage - S1-E8

Plot hole: In this episode the mayor says that New New York has been garbage free for 500 years, but in most other episodes there's been tons of it lying around on the streets. (00:17:45)

Meanwhile - S7-E26

Plot hole: After Fry dies falling from the building and Leela presses the button, Fry tells the story bit by bit while dying. But every time Leela presses the button he should start the story from the beginning.

I Second That Emotion - S2-E5

Plot hole: In the sewer, the guy with the big forehead starts singing with his guitar and a crowd gathers around. But you can see Leela's parents standing in the crowd and having no reaction to their daughter whatsoever, despite them knowing what she looks like. Considering later episodes, this is a bit confusing.

Rebirth - S6-E1

Continuity mistake: As the power builds up in Bender, his left eye pops out, making him a cyclops, subsequently being eaten by the Cyclops eater. After the monster dies, Bender comes out, and has two eyes in the long shot, but puts his left eye back in the close up.
