19 mistakes in season 1

The Hero - S1-E21

Visible crew/equipment: When the shelf falls in the store, you can see the rope attached to the top of the shelving unit being pulled from off-screen triggering the collapse of the shelving unit, it was not the girl's weight that made it tip.

54-40 and Fight - S1-E15

Other mistake: A final contest is given for control of "green stamps" with all the kids building a "House of Cards." Whomever causes the cards to fall will be the losers. All is going well until Tiger comes in and knocks into Greg and causes him to bump the table and knock over the cards. If you watch closely at the end of the scene, when all the dialog is finished, you can see Mike trying to knock down a few remaining cards. However they keep popping up. Probably due to the fact that the cards were glued together to make it easier for the kids to build upon.

54-40 and Fight - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: When the kids are building the card castle to see who would get to choose what they get with the stamps, Jan is putting a card on, in one shot her hair is up in a ponytail then in the other shot her hair is down. This happens back and forth when the shots change.

54-40 and Fight - S1-E15

Other mistake: The scene where Alice is giving Tiger a bath was the same one used in "Katchoo Katchoo", albeit with some audio dubbing thrown in, like when Alice complains about the floor getting wet.

Is There a Doctor in the House? - S1-E13

Audio problem: When Mike walks into the kitchen and sees the chart with the list of kids on it and what ailments they've had, he comments on one of the ailments, saying "None of the kids have had distemper." However, if you watch his mouth, he appears to have originally said "rabies."

Other mistake: Carol grabs a pot holder with her right hand and removes a small cake from the oven. The cake pan is obviously not hot. It starts to tip and Carol steadies it by placing her bare left hand on the underside of the pan.

54-40 and Fight - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: When Marcia takes her last turn placing a card at the top of the tall house of cards, in the shots facing her she's stressed about accidentally collapsing the cards so she holds back her charm bracelet with her left hand, but in the first shot facing the three boys Marcia's left arm is down at her side and the charm bracelet is dangling at her wrist, right beside the cards.

Is There a Doctor in the House? - S1-E13

Plot hole: Lots of factors here: The doctors end up with the opposite kids that they were supposed to have... Why didn't they simply switch in the first place rather than go through all the drama? Also, the male doctor admits Alice let him in and most likely Alice would have told him first door on the right (like she's given directions in other episodes) to locate Peter. And the biggest question of all is, what doctor would make a house call and not look for their patient rather than just ending up with someone else they were not called to see (remember, each parent called their own doctor to see their biological kid).

Is There a Doctor in the House? - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: When Carol and Mike are bringing stacked lunch trays upstairs to the kids, the milk glasses on the middle and bottom trays that Carol's holding switch to the opposite sides twice, in the wideshots and closeup. Then when Carol picks up the girls' stacked trays, the glass of OJ is on the bottom tray (after Peter's reaction to broccoli, it looks as if the OJ glass is gone), then as Carol walks into their room the OJ is now on the middle tray.
