Continuity mistake: In the scene where they bring in the matter of Poochie, Earl's list appears suddenly in his shirt pocket, having not been there seconds before.

Continuity mistake: Season: 4, Episode: 17, "Randy's List Item." In the scene where Randy and Arlen are sitting in the bar, and Randy is telling Arlen how to be a better little brother, take notice that the beer bottles on the table increases in number, and the arrangement of the bottles changes too.

Visible crew/equipment: Throughout the whole episode, there are times that you see the green light from the camera reflecting off of the Witch Lady's glasses.


Show generally

Revealing mistake: In Episode 404, "Sweet Johnny", the air mattress embedded in the ground that cushions their fall, and the curly hair and face of the stuntman for Earl are quite obvious when Earl and Sweet Johnny hit the ground.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Season 4, Ep 2 - "Monkeys Take a Bath": When Earl's mother is in the bathroom stall we see she has a tiny bit of toilet paper on the roll next to her. As Joy puts her head underneath the stall the amount of toilet paper is now much longer than before. It goes from half a square of paper to about 2-3 squares of paper.

Inside Probe: Part 2 - S4-E26

Factual error: You hear a recording of Earl's ancestor from the 1860s, but audio recording like that was not technologically possible at the time (especially for someone as obscure as him). (00:10:30)

Didn't Pay Taxes - S1-E17

Plot hole: Earl and Randy spent at least three days inside that water tower without a drop of water, but somehow managed to survive.

Inside Probe: Part 1 - S4-E25

Police officer: It's police policy not to waste resources looking for a missing person in the first 24 hours because they usually show up on their own, and after 24 hours, if they're still missing, it usually means they're dead and we don't look for them that hard then either

Trivia: Episode 2-21, "G.E.D.": Randy fills in the bubbles on a GED test form in the shape of a sailboat. This is a reference to Ethan Suplee's role in Mallrats, where he played a character that could not see a sailboat hidden in a picture.
