Revealing mistake: In Club SpongeBob, when SpongeBob, Patrick and Squidward are in the forest, Squidward asks the magic conch shell if he can have something to eat. Straight after he asks "Can't you say anything else but 'No'?", it has a close-up of the shell. But Squidward's arm appears to be yellow, like SpongeBob's. This error was later corrected in 2019 when the episode was remastered for digital releases.
Revealing mistake: In "Spongebob Meets The Strangler" when that fish holds up Spongebob's dry cleaning at the supermarket, it looks like he is holding it up with a coathanger because his hand is up in the air, but you can easily see nothing is holding it up. It's just floating up in the air.
Revealing mistake: In one scene with Spongebob, Patrick, an old lady, and her almost dead mom, in one part Spongebob has no holes on his face. There is also a light-colored spot near Patrick's mouth.
Revealing mistake: Atlantis SquarePantis: After the Atlantis van crashes through the museum's ceiling, Squidward is surprised that it's the magical path to Atlantis, and while Krabs says, "Nice hot rod flames," note how only the disembodied tip of Patrick's arm is in front of SpongeBob's body (it even moves as Patrick moves), due to an animation error in this shot.

Revealing mistake: In the shot that shows the outside of the Krusty Krab (in Krab Borg) they reused the drawing of right before the customers ran out of the building because you can see many customers crowded at the door. This shot lasts about 2 seconds but it's not hard to spot. (00:08:05)
