Dino Disappears - S4-E4

Continuity mistake: While Fred and Barney are being chased by the police, in the closeup of the stop/go signal we see two ropes beside the monkey's hand - one controlling "stop" and one for "go", but in the wideshot there's only one rope hanging from the post, apparently controlling both "stop" and "go" signals.

Little Bamm-Bamm - S4-E3

Continuity mistake: During the hearing, when Perry Masonry is questioning his client about being fixed financially, part of Perry's string loop closure on his clothing vanishes within the same shot, and then reappears. A few moments later Perry's two parallel strings are crisscrossed, then both are back to normal. Later, when Barney asks Perry if he can hold Bamm-Bamm, once again Perry's parallel strings become crisscrossed. (00:20:35)
