Show generally

Corrected entry: This only covers the 2nd season. Whenever the Boosh van is shown driving down the road, the van is always on the right side of the road instead of the left, like it should be for the UK.

Correction: The show plays on a European element and is set in a parallel kind of universe. For example the currency is in Euros, driving on the right is just a continuation of this and is a joke that the show uses throughout all series.

Show generally

Corrected entry: In the episode "Party," Chris de Burgh only appears in the 'Spin the Bottle' ring when the bottle stops at him after Howard has spun it.

Correction: That's part of the joke. It's highlighting Howard's immense bad luck that he landed on someone as undesirable as Chris De Burgh even though he wasn't even in the circle to start with.

Corrected entry: When Vince is told that the lead singer of The Black Tubes has been killed by being pushed into a canal, he expresses his disbelief that that could happen in Dalston. As a local boy surely he is aware that the Regents Canal runs right through Dalston? It's a very prominent local feature.

Correction: He's not shocked that there's a canal, he's shocked that somebody would intentionally push somebody else into it.

Show generally

Corrected entry: In 'Call of the Yeti' (Season 2 Episode 1), Vince receives a copy of Cheekbone Magazine from a Ninja because it goes out of date every three hours. However, when he receives his next delivery later in the episode, when they're preparing to rescue Howard, the Ninja gives him the same copy as before.

Correction: Maybe the content changed but the cover is the same.

Show generally

Corrected entry: In 'Electro' (Season 1 Episode 7), during the black and white scene there are several moments where Noel Fielding's white skin can be seen poking out of his sleeve while he is dressed as the Spirit of Jazz, despite the character's skin being black.

Correction: The Spirit of Jazz isn't black - he is a striking, black and white pattern. His wrists are white, part of the pattern. Not a mistake.

Show generally

Corrected entry: Series 1, "Hitcher": At 15:06, when Vince is talking to Brain in the forest, Brian pushes the tree over and as Vince says, "Anyway, look Brian," the tree falls down slightly again. Vince must have thought that part would have been cut because he says, "Anyway, look Brian" again. (00:15:00)

Correction: There's no continuity reason why he couldn't have just said the line twice.

Ictoabu

Show generally

Corrected entry: In "Killeroo," Howard is forced to fight because he has some kind of physical deformity on his abdomen. However, he is seen later in the series, in "Electro," stripped down to his underpants with no deformity in sight.

Correction: Noel Fielding and Julian Barratt have said that some events in the show are deliberately made to be inconsistent with previous episodes in order for it to be funnier. They even joke about it on the DVD commentary. For example, Bollo is seen dying at the end of the Season 1 episode "Bollo", and yet he is still alive in all future episodes.

Show generally

Corrected entry: In 'Hitcher', the Hitcher character has a massive green thumb, but in the second series, they removed the thumb (episode 4 Fountain of youth), perhaps to make it easier for the acting.

Show generally

Corrected entry: In the first series, Howard can't play any instrument in case he is possessed by the Spirit Of Jazz (episode 7 - Electro). However, in the second series, this notion is ignored in order for Howard to be able to be in a band with Vince and Bollo. This would probably have been okay if Naboo had produced a cure or something, which didn't happen.

Correction: You mean, we didn't SEE it happen. Doesn't mean it didn't.

Show generally

Corrected entry: In the second series, Howard can talk to and understand Bollo. This doesn't make sense. Vince can, as he is 'Mowgli in flares' so can talk to animals, and since Bollo is Naboo's familiar, Naboo can understand him. Howard is neither and so shouldn't be able to understand him.

Correction: Bollo is a gorilla like Brian from Family Guy is a dog - he talks, we understand him. There's no magic involved. In later episodes a checkout operator at a supermarket understands him perfectly.
