New this month Other mistake: Bender wears a magnetic bow tie. However in series 1 episode 2 it's shown magnets screw up his circuits and make him sing songs. It's mentioned in a previous entries correction that it's only when the magnet is near his head. This isn't true as it's shown in others episodes that it happens when a magnet is attached anywhere on him.

Continuity mistake: Whilst Fry, Leela and the professor are on the log near the waterfall they are very close to the right side of the river. A few shots after Gunter puts the hat back on his head you can see they and the log are now all the way over to the left side of the river.
Continuity mistake: After the accident when Fry looks at his body, there is a tool kit or something similar more or less right in between the body's legs. In a few moments there is a shot from above and the kit is several feet to the right of the body without anyone touching it.

Continuity mistake: In the intro, before the main titles, the Professor informs the crew that he's booked them on the maiden voyage of the Titanic. When Leela says "Looks nice," at the beginning of the "scary" Titanic montage, the right side of her shirt is undamaged. During the middle of the "scary" Titanic montage, it suddenly becomes torn.
Continuity mistake: When talking about El Chupakneebra with the Sewer People, the characters are standing in front of a building with a blue sign reading "Cleaners". But in the shot where Leela explains how Nibbler loves fresh crocodile, the writing on the sign changes to a completely different, much narrower, style.
Other mistake: At the end, when Fry, Leela and Bender are sitting at the table, Fry's legs disappear (and the gray blotch beneath him isn't them - it's the table leg; and it's not hiding them either - his knees should be visible behind it).
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Fry and the professor is trying to make Gunter choose between the banana and the hat, the distance between Fry, the professor, and Leela changes noticeably between shots. First Fry and the professor are wide apart with Leela behind Fry. Then after Leela hears the robot-house's boat approaching, they're all suddenly down by the lake standing next to each other.
Continuity mistake: When Gunter is trying to figure out where the hat goes, the banana disappears and reappears between shots. When Gunter finally figures out the hat goes on the head the banana is nowhere to be seen, yet when he needs it to do some calculations the banana is on the ground right next to him.
Continuity mistake: When Hermes said that the form that Morgan filled out for a "regulation date that ended in regulation disappointment" was stamped only four times. The form shows three red stamp marks close to each other and a fourth one at the bottom right corner of the page by itself. Hermes then puts the form on 1.0s' desk and the first red stamp in the upper left corner is now by itself and the second and third stamp marks are now next to the fourth stamp mark. When we get a close-up of 1.0 looking at the form the stamp marks are back in their original place.
Continuity mistake: As Bender goes up to the Oilade stand there are four full glasses on the table and a large jar next to them. Bender drinks one of the glasses of oil and puts it down. He picks up another glass leaving two full glasses and one empty one on the table. The following shot there are now three full glasses. After this there are still three full glasses but the glasses have moved to the other side of the stand. The next shot the jar of oil disappears.
Other mistake: When Fry is talking to Leela (After being stitched onto Amy's body), he asks for some privacy from Amy, who puts her fingers in her ears and begins singing a song in Chinese. At one point, when it shows a close-up of Fry's head, you can barely see Amy's head, and the finger disappears and reappears near her nose, then suddenly reappears back in her ear.
Continuity mistake: When the filming of the fake TV show begins, Fry says "Lights." and Bender dramatically opens his chest cabinet to display a large stage light. The camera cuts to Fry, who says "Camera one." and then the camera cuts back to Bender, whose chest is now closed again. There wasn't enough time to shut his chest between the shots and we would have heard it anyway, given the amount of noise the stage light gives off.

Continuity mistake: Hermes is a Grade 36. But when he finishes sorting the master in-pile he is demoted because he finished two seconds early. 1.0 tells him that he's demoted to grade 38. When 1.0 uses the control to demote Hermes, the number 38 is already on Hermes badge and then quickly turns into 36 and then back into 38.
Continuity mistake: Leela holds little Grr in both her hands. It cuts cuts to a close-up where she pokes Grr in his stomach with her right hand before she lowers it. When it cuts she is suddenly holding Grr with both hands again.
Revealing mistake: In the scene near the beginning where Leela tells Fry and Bender to watch the political debate on television, both of them (Fry and Bender) fall asleep. When Leela "hops" on the couch to wake them up, Bender's arm, despite being behind Leela, can be seen through her white shirt for a few frames.
Continuity mistake: When the mutant with the big head first mentions El Chupakneebra, in the background you can see the blue sign reading "Cleaners". It is then attached to the building next to the one the characters are standing by. However, in the next shot, when Leela asks what El Chupakneebra is, you can see the blue sign on the building they are in front of.
Continuity mistake: During the Slurm Queen chase scene, the Slurm girls' shoes appear and disappear several times. On Slurms MacKenzie's line "Stop right there." the girls are wearing high-heeled pumps. When the shot cuts back to them, they're barefoot. A few seconds later, when the Slurm Queen bursts in, the Slurm girls are wearing shoes again; in the ensuing pursuit, their bare feet can be seen. At the end of the scene, when Slurms says, "I'll hold her off," the girls are wearing shoes. The girls are back to barefoot when Slurms tells them to party on without him.
Continuity mistake: When we see the professor's clone inside the tube there is a panel attached to a metal post going down to the bottom of the tube. When the professor hits the button to empty the tube of fluid it cuts to a close-up of the clone's feet and the metal post is suddenly gone.
Continuity mistake: During the professor's toast we see in an overhead shot there are two plates with veal on them and one plate with a pork on it. When Leela tells them to pass the veal to her all three plates have veal on them.
Continuity mistake: When Fry and Zoidberg are fighting, Zoidberg slashes the "Z" insignia (a tip of the hat to Zorro) onto Fry's shirt, then adds a D and R. When Fry releases Zoidberg from the nutcrackers and addresses the king, his shirt is repaired.

Continuity mistake: When Fry looks up at the clock tower the display reads "04:26" which implies it is 4 in the morning, instead of before sunset. In addition, once he has climbed up to the top of the tower, the clock has no 0 before the time and simply reads "4:26". The zero returns right at the end of the episode, in a wide shot of New New York.
Continuity mistake: During the Titanic's naming ceremony, Zapp stands next to the ship, with the word "Titanic" in shot, just above the grey part of the hull, very low down on the ship. However, during the rest of the episode, the word "Titanic" is located further up, just below the white trim.
Continuity mistake: After the meeting when Fry has been promoted they are gathered in his office. As Amy says, "I can't figure out why she's so nice to you.", Fry holds a can of Slurm in one hand and his other hand is behind his head. When it cuts, both his hands are behind his head.
Continuity mistake: When the professor makes a toast for Leela he has some food on his plate and Bender is sitting right beside Hermes. When it cuts, the food from the professor's plate is gone and Bender has moved at least a foot away from Hermes.
Continuity mistake: When Professor Farnsworth places the envelope containing his holo-message on the table, we get a quick glimpse of the front of the envelope, and it is blank, without any writing on it. He then walks away with the Sunset Squad robot, without taking time to address the envelope. When the crew finds the message, the words "For my crew" appear on the envelope.
Continuity mistake: When Bender makes the joke about where the professor would be without all the students who love and respect him, we see the professor sitting with nothing in front of him on the table. When it cuts, two glasses and a blue cup suddenly appear.
Continuity mistake: While Fry is commenting on it being his first Christmas without his family, it can be seen that the door to the hallway is open. but when Hermes comes in, there's the sound of the door opening. Also, Hermes waves the two stacks of cards. The stack in his right hand has a red envelope in it that changes to white in the wide shot.

Continuity mistake: When Fry asks the Professor his 'What if?' question there are two shots from behind showing Scruffy and one shot in front. From behind, Scruffy has a brown moustache and a grey hat, but from the front he has his usual grey moustache and brown hat.
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.
