Continuity mistake: Peggy Hill's mother seems to change over the course of the show. Prior to the ninth season, whenever Peggy's mother is seen (in the present or in flashbacks), she is portrayed as an older version of Peggy. In the ninth season's premiere episode, Peggy's mother is a lean, leather-skinned rancher who disdains Peggy and lives on a secluded ranch. The change in facial features and appearance is too much to just be a change in style as well.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: (Season 11, Episode 5 - Hank Gets Dusted) While Hank is reminiscing about the car with his father he is in the garage and does not realise he is being filmed by the cameras. The following scene, the filming crew is watching the footage in the truck and the shot shows the camera angle is now different and would only be possible if Hank was standing in the alley outside his house.

Continuity mistake: Episode 9-13, 'Gone with the Windstorm': As Hank jumps out of the closest to scare the boy that is scaring Bobby, we see the contents of the cupboard as well. We see a shelf with a large number of boxes. Clothes rail with many clothes hanging on it. Finally an assortment of objects on the ground. When Hank leaves and the father is wondering where his son has disappeared to we see inside the cupboard again. Everything including the shelf, clothes and clothes rail have disappeared. The only thing remaining is one small box in the left corner.

Continuity mistake: In several episodes, the color of Alamo Beer that Hank, Dale, Boomhauer, and Bill drink, changes color. In "Uh-Oh Canada" the beer is yellow, but in "Death of a Propane Salesman" when Hank pours the beer into a glass, it is brown.

Other mistake: In the season four episode "Nancy Boys", when Nancy calls John Redcorn and tells him that she wants him back, he says, "I'm thirty-six years old. I don't need this crap." Later, in the season nine episode "Redcorn Gambles with His Future", while John is talking to Hank, he mentions waking up one day and realizing that he is forty. If four years had passed since his break-up with Nancy, then Bobby and Joseph would now be sixteen and at least sophomores in high school, but they are still in middle school.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: The ages of Hank, Peggy, and Didi (Hank's stepmother) are inconsistent throughout the show. In the season one episode "Shins of the Father", Hank states that Didi went to kindergarten with him, so they are the same age. In the season four episode "Peggy Hill: The Decline and Fall", Hank mentions that Didi is three years older than Peggy. Therefore Hank is also three years older than Peggy, if he and Didi were in the same kindergarten class. Finally, in the season five episode "Luanne Virgin 2.0", Hank says that he and Peggy were already married when they were eighteen. This is not possible if he and Didi are the same age and went to kindergarten together. He would have had to marry a fifteen-year-old Peggy if he was married by age eighteen.

Hank: Calm down, Boomhauer! I can't understand a word you're saying.

The Wedding of Bobby Hill - S3-E14

Trivia: During Hanks's conversation with Bobby when he tells him that he will have to marry Luanne, look at the shelf behind Bobby. There is a Bart Simpson doll there. A few years before this was featured the Hill family was in the crowd at one of the pee wee football games in the Simpsons episode "Bart Star".

Answer: If you are talking about the "Thou shalt not do this, thou shalt not do that" song, I'm not sure if a song like that actually exists. Green Day, the guest voices on the episode, might have just been improvising to keep their appearance from being too obvious.
