I've Got Batman in My Basement - S1-E20

Continuity mistake: Batman looks at the vulture after outwrestling it, and then, sprints to get his 'rang back. When he looks out he's got a cut on the suit, on the left, but when he fetches the weapon the torn part is gone. Cut away, and now the tear is back and doubled over to the other side. (00:02:55)

It's Never Too Late - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: The henchmen spot Stromwell as he makes a run for it through the train yard. Before the chase begins, Thorne gets in frame in a close-up, and he has eyebrows matching the white of his hair instead of his usual black. (00:17:15)

It's Never Too Late - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: Batman throws a chair and shatters a window. You can see that there is basically no part of the frame nor glass left at the bottom, but when Stromwell looks outside and when Batman gets back in the office, part of it is still standing. (00:15:55)

Be A Clown - S1-E11

Be A Clown - S1-E11

Be A Clown - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: The Mayor is giving an inauguration speech. Look at the crowd in the long shot. It cuts closer, and you can see that the man in cowboy hat that was in the crowd moved behind the mayor on stage. A journalist in red tailleur also switches to lilac. (00:01:20)

P.O.V. - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: The lieutenant is drinking a mug of coffee (or whatever) when he begins to listen to Bullock's story. The rest of the scene takes place inside the same room, but the mug just vanishes without a trace, it's not on the desk.

The Underdwellers - S1-E27

Continuity mistake: Alfred is skilfully dancing while sitting and sipping tea. The radio rests next to a circular monitor on the computer. Then on a featureless spot, then directly on the monitor itself. (00:04:05)

I've Got Batman in My Basement - S1-E20

Other mistake: Toss a brick into a pile of empty boxes, and they won't fly around like it is shown. The heavy brick will sink into whatever hits and possibly other boxes will be affected; here the brick does not deform the box it hits and every single cardboard acts like bouncy balls. (00:13:30)

I've Got Batman in My Basement - S1-E20

Character mistake: One of the books Sherman is getting his detective stuff from is called "Crime and It's Causes." It must not be a very good book. (00:11:15)

Two-Face (1) - S1-E17

Rupert Thorne: All men have something to hide. The brighter the picture, the darker the negative.

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.
