Batman: The Animated Series

On Leather Wings - S1-E2

Character mistake: When Batman looks up at the computer the data of the burglaries, he says they happened "this week", but the dates are June 28, July 3, and July 13. On the screen there's also a typo; "Buaglary." (00:05:00)

Pretty Poison - S1-E9

Character mistake: The French spoken by the waiter of the cafe is phony in a pretty atrocious way for a supposed high class restaurant. Can't even pronounce "monsieur" right, it's merely a tacked-on accent. (00:04:10)

On Leather Wings - S1-E2

Character mistake: When Batman uses his magic computer to analyze Langstrom/Man-Bat, lots of lovely gibberish appears on screen, with some notable typos such as "Bat membaaanes", "Sedum Chloride D", "Mammac higi Index Gat harmal nomeaace at padiotion." Your guess is as good as mine for the last one. (00:21:10)

Be A Clown - S1-E11

Character mistake: The magician's name on the poster is "Proscuitto", which is a wrong spelling for Prosciutto (ham). The misspelling is inconsistent throughout the episode; it is wrong the first time Joker shows the poster, then it's fixed at the fun fair and on tv. The font used is also different.

Heart of Ice - S1-E3

Other mistake: When Batman is watching the security footage of Victor Fries' accident, at first Fries is addressing the camera directly which follows him and pans according to his movements and Ferris Boyle interrupting him, which would suggest a second person was in the room with a handheld camera. But after Ferris Boyle enters the room and orders Fries' experiment terminated, there are several cuts from various angles in the room suggesting surveillance cameras. The surveillance style footage also often conveniently cuts to the face of whichever person happens to be speaking or will cut to a certain angle in order to put emphasis on the action, all of which would require multiple mounted cameras and purposeful editing by either Boyle or one of his subordinates, which would be completely illogical since they don't want anyone to see the footage in the first place. (00:12:20 - 00:13:55)

Two-Face (1) - S1-E17

Trivia: Harvey Dent's demanding of a mirror to see his scarred visage at his doctor's reluctance is very similar to the Joker demanding a mirror from his surgeon in the 1989 "Batman" film. (00:20:30)
