Factual error: When Zack is given the old newspaper with Mr. Belding's article, the headline reads, "Picture on pages 3 and 4." When he looks at the picture, he looks at the middle of the paper, with quite a few pages at both sides of the newspaper. Pages 3 and 4 would be near the front and would be on opposite sides of the same page.
Plot hole: Lisa, Zack & Screech all talk to JB as if they have known her since she was little. However, they have only known Slater for approximately four years, so them knowing her from a little girl, as implied, wouldn't be possible.
Continuity mistake: In this episode, Screech's mother kisses her Elvis statue before her trip while it is facing towards the right; indicating that this is the correct way that is should be facing. However, when she comes home after her trip the "new" statue is facing the same direction; right. She complains and says that the statue should always face towards the kitchen so he can see her cook; which is towards the left.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Max has Zack bring Kelly a Coke, you can see the glass only has one straw in it. You can verify that it's simply not two straws stuck together when he lays it on Kelly's table. As he lays it down, the straw swoops around the outer perimeter of the glass and it can be verified that it's only one straw. However, when Kelly decides to take a drink of it there are now two straws in the glass.

Continuity mistake: When Zack is in middle school, his teacher, Miss Bliss wants to talk to his father. At that time his father's name is Peter Morris and he is an older man and unmarried. When Zack is in high school and Mr. Belding wants to talk to him about the ski trip, his name is Derrik Morris and he has a mother.
Character mistake: Brandon begins the scene giving his speech while he is sitting/leaning on the desk. The students all move into the picture from both sides and gather around Brandon then they all say, "There's no hope with dope". After the conversation with Mr. Belding, they watch the commercial they just shot (beginning with each student giving his/her opinion about drugs). Then Zach says his speech while sitting/leaning on the desk. He stands up, the rest of the students and Brandon move in and gather around Zach, then Brandon gives his anti-drug speech.
Continuity mistake: During 8th grade in one episode, Zack talks to Ms. Bliss about having had to use his sister's bike for a project. In high school, many episodes have Zack being an only child (further proven several times when Derrick Morris would tell Zack that "he and his mother were more important than his job").
Other mistake: In the scene where the Glee Club is discussing that Violet will win them the contest, Violet leaves as she is upset about Screech. Zack then comments about "No one having a voice like Violet's". If you look at Mr. Tuttle, he mouths the words that Zack says.

Continuity mistake: At the end when they finish the commercial, nothing at all is the same on the playback as what they showed them do. None was the same. The wording and also the places and stances everyone was doing. The entire thing was different in the playback.
Plot hole: After the meeting with Zack's "fake Dad", Mr. Belding informs Zack he wrote a letter to see the Dad again... However when the "real" Dad sees the fake "Belding" (whom the Dad didn't know was fake), the Dad never questioned about the "seeing him AGAIN" letter when this real Dad never met Belding before. In addition, wouldn't the Dad question this letter to Zack anyway?
Plot hole: Zack was told by Slater that Kelly was excused from going to detention by Belding because Belding found out she saved Screech's life... Yet only 3 students knew about the fake "choking" stunt - Zack and Screech did this stunt to get Kelly into detention (so they wouldn't have said anything), and Kelly unlikely would say anything as generally students will say anything to get excused and usually are ignored by the teacher or principal who use authority to make the student's detention stand. So who else could have told Belding?
Character mistake: While holding the fake raffle, Zack says Mr. Belding won't be back for two days. Mr. Belding shows up suddenly, surprising the boys that he's back early - however, at the end of the scene, Slater says to Belding, "we weren't expecting you back til tomorrow."
Character mistake: Lisa is upset about being paired up with Screech. Mr. Belding explains to Lisa that the matches were paired up alphabetically. But this is proven incorrect - although Kapowsky (Kelly) and Morris (Zack) are very close, and Slater (AC) and Spano (Jessie) are even closer alphabetically, Powers (Screech) and Turtle (Lisa) should not have been paired. Assuming no other kids names' interfered with these six (in which case the groups would be different anyway). The correct pairs would be Kelly and Zack, Screech and Jessie, then AC and Lisa according to true alphabetical order last names.
