Batman: The Animated Series

Joker's Favor - S1-E7

Factual error: The note the Joker has that says Charlie has changed his name to Don Wallace lists his address as 12 Marigold Lane, Springdale, Ohio, a city near Cincinnati; however his area code is listed as 614, which is the Columbus, Ohio area code.

Two-Face (1) - S1-E17

Factual error: After he becomes agitated with his doctor, Harvey Dent is able to toss the doctor across the room with one hand while sitting in his hospital bed. Harvey Dent/Two-Face does not possess superhuman strength, and lying in a hospital bed for several days would have only weakened him, so throwing his doctor across the room like that would not be possible.

Perchance to Dream - S1-E26

Factual error: A vital part of the plot's resolution is based on the fact that the reading activity of the brain happens in the right hemisphere, while the dream activity is localized in the left half, making thus impossible to read during a dream. Besides anecdotal experience that says the contrary, this 'fact' is not supported by medical studies, which in fact contradict it. There is no hard distinction, it varies greatly between individuals and even going by those studies who could be seen as supportive of the theory, reading would not be impossible and speaking would be just as hard.

Two-Face (1) - S1-E17

Continuity mistake: The pothole with the mud that Rupert Thorne's henchman kicks at Harvey Dent appears from nowhere. When the henchman is shown kicking the mud, the pothole is located between the police officer behind the henchman's right shoulder and Harvey's assistant Carlos on the henchman's left. However, in the previous shot, the ground shown between the police officer and Carlos contains no pothole. (00:04:35)

Trivia: The series was animated on darker (typically black) paper as opposed to standard white paper. This helped aid in the show's aesthetic, and also helped save time when animating nighttime sequences, since they wouldn't have to paint the entire background black.
