The New Kid - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: In the beginning, as Gus' dad walks away, the A/C duct goes way down the hallway, and one side is halfway in one tile and the other side is halfway on another tile. When Gus is talking, the duct is much shorter, and the whole duct is contained in one tile.

The New Kid - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: In the beginning, after the kids have gone to recess, Vince starts talking to TJ about Gus. The number of bricks between the windows on the wall behind them and the bricks' position changes four times.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Across the show, the number of kids in a class/what kids are in which class varies. For example, in "The Great Can Drive", the Ashleys are in Ms. Furley's class. However, in almost every other episode besides this one, the Ashleys are all in Ms. Grotke's class, and the exception are a couple of episodes in which 2 Ashleys are in Ms. Grotke's class, and the other 2 Ashleys are in another class (which is not specified by name), making a serious consistency error.

The New Kid - S1-E2

The New Kid - S1-E2

The New Kid - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: In the beginning, right as Mrs. Grotke asks for Gus to describe his "personal journey", there is a short kid with a white t-shirt and dirty blonde hair, with the globe behind his head. As the kid asks if they can go to recess now, the globe has moved way to the left.

Good Luck Charm - S4-E19

Continuity mistake: Throughout the scene where Spinelli shows off her jump roping skills, the two Ashley's swinging the rope quite awkwardly and choppily go from a normal to a surprised expression every second or so.

The Box - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: When TJ is in The Box, he lays down and puts his head on his baseball glove. Then when he gets up, he doesn't pick it up, but it's nowhere to be seen. Then a couple of shots later, it's back, and it's on the other end.

The New Kid - S1-E2

Principal for a Day - S2-E23

Continuity mistake: When TJ makes the morning announcements, in the first scene of the classroom we see a boy in a blue hat sitting in the back row. After TJ says that the kids can refuse to answer a teacher, the same kid is suddenly sitting in the second row so he can slap hands with someone in the first row.


The Big Prank - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: When TJ's friends climb on on the jungle gym to try and take TJ's place, we see that Gretchen is the last one up and there is no one on the bars behind her. But in the next long shot, Mikey is right behind her. Then when it shows a close up of them, Mikey is gone again.


One Stayed Clean - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: In the beginning, the kids are outside the school, and Mikey says, "Last?" But the sign says the fourth graders are right after the 3rd graders, right where they should be.
