Continuity mistake: When Fry and Bender are in the museum and locked in the "Villains" room, Bender breaks the two girders in the window, when he turns around and says "Who I want!" you can see behind him that the girders are back in their original position. (00:14:10)

Continuity mistake: When Fry is queueing for the booth, he opens the piece of paper, showing the picture and writing. Just before he steps in to the booth, it's changed colour and gone blank, then in the next shot it's back as before. (00:07:45)

Episode Two: The Series Has Landed - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When Fry and Leela get to the moon landing site, Leela climbs in the moonlander hatch with the oxygen tank to which Fry's oxygen hose is connected. The hose is visible as it leads in to the hatch. When Leela pops her head out the hatch, the hose is suddenly gone. Then in the next shot, it's back, but lying underneath the hatch. (00:17:50)

Episode Two: The Series Has Landed - S1-E2

Other mistake: When the Moon Patrol officers throw Bender out of the airlock onto the moon's surface, they are exposed to hard vacuum, but they aren't wearing space suits. Throughout the episode it is established that the moon's "atmosphere" is a vacuum and protective suits are necessary - when the farmer removes his helmet he begins to asphyxiate instantly.

Continuity mistake: When Bender removes the bars from the cell, it leaves two small pieces of bar jutting out from the top of the window. When he bends another two bars to stop Leela from following them, the pieces are gone. (00:14:25)

Space Pilot 3000 - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: The windows at the beginning of the episode are inconsistent. Sometimes they're transparent, sometimes opaque. As in the taxi, the newspaper stands and the shop windows. (00:00:30)

A Big Piece of Garbage - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Leela is telling Fry how even his food is recycled (just after they have seen the video of the origin of the garbage-ball) you can see both Fry's drink can and sandwich on the table. After the closeup of Fry his sandwich has disappeared but in the next full-table shot it's back (albeit moved to Fry's right along with his drink can). (00:10:00)

Space Pilot 3000 - S1-E1

Deliberate mistake: When the world is counting down to the new year, we see people in various countries, Egypt, the USA etc all counting down together. Because of time zone differences this isn't possible. [It is a little joke.] (00:01:35)

Answer: The initial number is 0101100101 = 357. When reflected in a mirror, however, it reads 1010011010 = 666 (the number of the Beast). It is a parody of The Shining, where the words Red Rum are seen as the word murder in the mirror.
