Show generally

Corrected entry: In the episode "The Challenge" when Gretchen is finding information on the first baseman, it shows her picture and says that her name is Tracy Logan, which is a girl's name. But, in the episode "The Trail", she screams out "Let's give Spinelli the swirley" in a man's voice. The character's looks can be anyone, male or female.


Correction: Tracy is a unisex name, not just a girl's name. Example: New Orleans Saints cornerback Tracy Porter.


The Shiner - S3-E9

Corrected entry: In this episode, the kid with shoulder length black hair and a red shirt talks and acts as a girl. But in every other episode the kid has been in, this person has talked and acted like a boy.


Correction: He could have been acting like a girl for a dare.

The New Kid - S1-E2

Corrected entry: Near the beginning, the kid in the tan jacket says, "6th graders." Later in the episode, when Gus makes his stand to King Bob, the same kid says the same thing. It's the same shot, as you can tell by his mouth movements.

Correction: So? Maybe he always says it like that. This isn't a mistake.

The Great Can Drive - S1-E20

Corrected entry: At the end, when the can pyramid is knocked down, I personally think that it's illogical that one can tapping another one could knock down the whole pyramid, let alone for that matter even make the top can only fall off, when the can hit at the very bottom.

Correction: And i don't think the kids would go mad from being kept inside when it is raining (another episode). It's a cartoon so they will exaggerate.

The New Kid - S1-E2

Corrected entry: When Gus steps on the bus, he is pointed to the back seat, which has a "New Kid" sign over it. The back seat cover the whole back of the bus, whereas in the middle, there should be an emergency exit door.

Correction: I don't really think that the kids watching this are going to be worried because there is no emergency escape, and besides, its a CARTOON.

This Brain for Hire - S4-E26

Corrected entry: If Gretchen did everybody's homework, wouldn't Miss Grotke notice many homework entries in Gretchen's handwriting?

Correction: Gretchen is very smart so a likely reason is that she can do different handwriting. I can if i want to or if i try and make it neat or scruffy.

A Career to Remember - S3-E4

Corrected entry: The bench that Spinelli and the inventor of Gumoflex shoes sit on has an ad for Gumoflex shoes.

Correction: Thats not really trivia, you can see it easily.

Teachers Lounge - S1-E17

Corrected entry: In this episode, everyone pronounces Mrs. Grotke with an a sound (like gra), but in every other episode, they pronounce it as "Gr-oh-tkee"

Correction: Maybe she told them afterwards (not in the cartoon) that you don't pronounce it like that. You don't see every sinlge second of every single day.

This Brain for Hire - S4-E26

Corrected entry: TJ says his dog ripped up his homework, you can see the paper has writing on it and he ripped it up himself - why do his homework then make an excuse?

cameron davies

Correction: Maybe he know he did it all wrong and instead of being told he was wrong he wanted to get rid of it.

Operation Field Trip - S2-E4

Corrected entry: We can see that the kids were on the bus for a very, very long time.When the bus breaks down, Gus shout something that says that there gonna lose half of the time, 20 minutes. What kind of field trip is only 40 minutes when they need to travel ridiculously long?

Correction: Maybe Gus got it wrong. He isn't perfect.

The Fuss over Finster - S4-E33

Corrected entry: When TJ is giving the speech and the crowd can be seen, behind Lawson you can see Stinky Peterson. But in the episode where Gretchen nearly goes to Ophenheimer, Prickly says Stinky went to Ophenheimer too.

cameron davies

Correction: In almost any episode when the gang talk about something bad happening to someone, they talk about Stinky Peterson. If this were realistic he would have changed schools, died etc dozens of times. It's just sort of a running joke, that bad stuff always happens to him.

Tattletale Heart - S4-E8

Corrected entry: During the food fight, Ashley A. is wearing a pink sweater. During the cleanup and afterwards, she is back in her normal outfit.


Correction: The Ashley's are a bunch of stuck-up snobs; this has proven time and time again. None of them would be caught dead wearing something unfashionable or dirty. It's pretty clear everyone got hit in the food fight, so her sweater must have food stains all over it. She probably went off and changed into some other outfight when there was a break or she got interviewed.

Recess is Cancelled - S4-E7

Corrected entry: When the teachers try to sneak off to their bathroom break, there are three doors, back-to-back-to-back. The door in the middle must lead to an EXTREMELY thin classroom.

Correction: It could be two classrooms with a closet in the middle.

Movie_Freak 1

Show generally

Corrected entry: Throughout the series, the characters leave school in the middle of the day to go to stores, such as the Diggers in "The Game" and Randall in "Prince Randall." What kind of school lets kids do that?


Correction: The students left at lunch. Some schools still let students out for lunch so if they want to go out are allowed. Also, when the diggers left they said "Let's go after school" to buy the tiles.

Call Me Guy - S4-E10

Corrected entry: When the kids are in the classroom, the dolphin poster that is usually on the end of the blackboard is missing.

Correction: Just becuase the poster is USUALLY there doesn't mean it's a continuity error. Ms. Grotke could have moved it to a different spot in the room just to give the classroom a different look, it could have fallen, or she could have just taken it down because it was getting old, just to name a few possibilites.

Prickly is Leaving - S4-E11

Corrected entry: When Prickly finally gets his promotion, he decides not to go. Yet in most other episodes he's always going on about leaving.

cameron davies

Correction: I think most people dream about leaving their current jobs. More than likely, after he left, he realized that there was more love of his current job than he realized or wanted to give up.

Ken Hogan

Show generally

Corrected entry: The gang lives near the school..we know this because most of the time they walk back home from school. So WHY do they sometimes walk, sometimes bike, sometimes arrive by bus, sometimes by car? A bus would not need to pick them up from their houses when they are within walking distance.

Correction: An elementary school bus will often pick up students within walking distance, in fact it can even pick a student up from across the street from the school in order to insure the student's safe arrival.

Schoolworld - S4-E21

Corrected entry: When S.A.L tells Principal Prickly that he's retired he says drive safely, but later locks him in his office.

cameron davies

Correction: Perhaps this mistake is over my head, but I don't really see a clear mistake the way it presently reads. If possible, rewrite and recorrect it.

The Trial - S1-E16

Corrected entry: When Randall throws the rock, he says that he threw it straight in the air, but when you actually see him throwing the rock, he throws it straight ahead.

cameron davies

Correction: The fact that Randall is mistaken about how he threw the rock in the air constitutes a character mistake, not the show's mistake.

Teachers Lounge - S1-E17

Corrected entry: In Spinelli's idea of what the teacher's lounge is going to be like, one of the teachers is on the running machine and he says he is going to run for another 20 minutes, or so, then get back to class. About 30 seconds later he is suddenly playing basketball with Miss Finster.

Correction: That whole thing with the gym is Spinelli's fantasy, so she probably isn't paying enough attention to realise that the teacher is in two places at once.

I Will Kick No More Forever - S1-E11

Corrected entry: Near the end, when TJ convinces Vince to kick again, he said the team needed help. Then TJ is the one that pitches the ball. If his team needed help, he wouldn't be throwing, someone on the other team would be.

Correction: He was probably just saying that to get Vince to come back and kick again. At that point, he would have said just about anything.


Kindergarten Derby - S3-E5

Corrected entry: Mikey says he was the only kid in 3rd Street history to not finish the derby. But 10 or so kids stopped in the Valley of Distraction. And all the trainers knew how bad that was, so more kids in history than just Mikey had to have not finished the race.

Correction: The trainers were most likely able to get their kids to move on after a minute or so in the Valley. They thought it was bad because they wanted their kid to win and stopping in the Valley would get rid of this chance.


Jinxed - S1-E22

Corrected entry: When Gus is sentenced to "The Wheel," his hands are chained down to the contraption he's on. When Mrs. Finster comes by, she seems to have no trouble at all ripping the chains off the pole.

Correction: It's often shown that Finster is strong and Gus is weak.


The New Kid - S1-E2

Corrected entry: The back seat of the bus should not be reserved for the most shunned kid at school. The back seat is the most coveted bus seat there is.

Correction: It really depends on the school. At mine, no one likes sitting in the back.


The Madness of King Bob - S4-E9

Corrected entry: Near the end, when TJ is pranked, King Bob says, "You there, the behatted one," meaning TJ has a hat on, and TJ is who he wants as a volunteer. But the prefix "be-" means "not" or "de" (Think beheaded=no head), meaning TJ does not have a hat on.

Correction: "Be" doesn't always refer to "not". Think of befouled (made dirty) and bespectacled (wearing glasses).

Show generally

Corrected entry: The length of recess varies across the show, and it also varies when they take recess. For example, in "The New Kid" recess is 40 minutes long, taken at 10 am. But sometimes they take recess near the end of school. And in "The Break In", Mrs. Finster makes a show of TJ at lunch, and he is still punished that day, meaning recess is after lunch. Like I said, it varies a lot.

Correction: When I was in elementary school we had a recess after every single subject. That meant about five recesses a day (if you include the lunch recess.) I never noticed any of the recesses in the being up to 40 minutes long though so I can't explain the time problem.

Economics of Recess - S2-E15

Corrected entry: In this episode, kids buy things, such as drinks of water, for a certain number of Monstickers. For instance, you have to pay 2 stickers to enter the door. It costs 3 stickers to play on Old Rusty. At these "outrageous rates," kids should burn through at least a pack and a half in a week. At this rate, I would think the parents would get suspicious that they "put so many stickers on their notebooks," and tell them not to go through them so fast, or stop buying them altogether. While it could be argued that the kids have their own money, it makes no sense because they wouldn't have as much money left and would have to ask for more.

Correction: Yeah, however, the kids were finding ways to get stickers, such as guarding the swing set until someone came. The stickers were really just someone else's.

Partners in Crime - S4-E24

Corrected entry: In the beginning, Randall has a short conversation with Menlo while Menlo is on his break. He says, "I was picked was beautiful". Less than 40 seconds later, he says, "Nine years old and I've never been picked". So, which is it? Have you been picked or not?

Correction: It Randall who said he was picked once. You can even see in the flashback it was Randall. Menlow then said he's nine and hasn't been picked.

Wild Child - S2-E6

Corrected entry: When TJ says, "Hang on kid, I think this fountain might be a trap.", there's a security 6th grader in front of the fountain, leaning up against it. But when Randall runs by and says "Hey, let me play or I'll make up something to tell Mrs. Finster on you.", the 6th grader has moved way to the left of the fountain.

Correction: He was never leaning against the fountain. It just looked like he was from where TJ was.
