Phineas and Ferb

I Scream, You Scream - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Doofensmirtz talks about how the sign blocks his view of other people's pain and misery, his window faces the sign. Then in the next shot where the laser blasts the sign, the Doofensmirtz evil inc. logo is facing the brick sign and the windows are facing the other way.

Toy to the World - S1-E16

Continuity mistake: When Dr Doofenshmirtz falls into the toy factory he goes crazy because he sees so many Perrys. Look at the Perry toy beside him first - the toy's foot points up, but in the next shot its foot is on the ground.

Factual error: In episode 2-7, "Elementary, My Dear Stacy", when they exit the London Eye, it stops. In real life, it does not.

Continuity mistake: In the episode 'One Good Scare Ought To Do It', when Phineas is carried into the air inside the haunted house, there is an aerial shot showing the Fireside Girls and Isabella, who is wearing a yellow sash like the other scouts as she shouts, "Phineas!" There are two problems here. First, Isabella wasn't wearing the sash before at the haunted house, until this particular shot. Also, between the shots before Phineas falls, her sash disappears, reappears and then disappears again. It reappears after Phineas falls, and Isabella says, "Quick, everyone! Sashes!"

I Scream, You Scream - S1-E15

Plot hole: When Linda (Mom) gets home from her cooking class and greets the boys, she sees nothing out of place. However, just a few moments before, we see the giant laser in the corner of the yard that they forgot to attach to the laser-inator. Wouldn't she have seen this?

Continuity mistake: In the episode "One Good Scare Ought to Do It", Candace arrives at Jeremy's house and is wearing a belt. (It's very clear as she yells "These are designer jeans!") After Susie's attacks, when Jeremy comes out Candace is on the ground with the dog still attached to her rear end and the belt has disappeared. In the next shot of Candace, the belt has returned.

Shannon Jackson

Rollercoaster - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When the "arms" take Perry's hands and feet. The "arms" came from the front of Perry, but in the next shot they've come from behind him.

Various adult "inspectors": Aren't you too young to...?
Phineas: Yes... Yes we are/Yes I am.

Show generally

Question: Based on Wikipedia, the show had 222 segments altogether including 2 films, and a Christmas special, meaning the show featured 2 different summer vacations (one before the Christmas special and one after). If Phineas and Ferb only have 104 days of summer vacation per-vacation, shouldn't there be no more than 208 segments and films put together (1 day per-segment/film) or not? Also, if there really were 3 different vacations, how come the characters don't look to have grown at least a little in height throughout the years (the facial looks are reasonable though because they still look exactly the same when it shows some of them older in the episode "Last Day of Summer," if I remember correctly).

Answer: And Bart Simpson should be about 40 by now. Cartoon characters don't age in real time. And are you really counting summer vacation days in a show about children who build spaceships and a platypus who's a secret agent?
