Continuity mistake: While Fred and Barney are fighting, when Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm are devising a plan together in baby-talk, the black strap is over Bamm-Bamm's left shoulder, but when Bamm-Bamm walks past Fred and Barney the strap is over Bamm-Bamm's right shoulder. (00:22:55)Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When Barney shows Fred the ad in the paper about new novelty acts for "The Ed Sullystone Show", the ad says "Apply Bedrock Broadcasting Co" at the bottom. When we see Fred and Barney in the queue with the other applicants, the station is now called "Bedrock Television Company."
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.

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)Super Grover
Continuity mistake: After Fred and Barney leave for the hospital without Wilma they realise the mistake and head back to the house, and when it cuts to Wilma in the bedroom Dino jumps atop the blue blanket on the bed, but in the next shot the blue blanket is gone, and then it reappears for Dino to hide under.

Continuity mistake: When Fred tells Wilma that he is stopping inventing at the end of the episode, he pours the remains of the reducing formula out of the window into Dino's bowl and Fred has a glass in his left hand. When he hears Dino at the front door, the glass has gone.
Continuity mistake: When Fred opens the back door and lets the dancing girls out of his house during Pebbles' birthday party, the door has a handle on the back of it. When one of the girls kicks down the door and lands on Fred a little later on, look at the door and the handle is missing.
Continuity mistake: Before Mr. Slate takes a picture of his employees, Sandy (the one that Fred gives a hot foot to) is standing by two other men. When Fred gives Sandy a hot foot, the men have disappeared, and when we see the photo that Mr. Slate has taken, they are back again.
Continuity mistake: When Barney is knocking on the door at Fred's house after seeing an advert in the newspaper, Fred says "I'll get it, Wilma!" and stops near the door. At this point, Fred is well away from the door, but in the next shot he is now standing near the corner of it.
Continuity mistake: When Wilma and Betty are looking at the jobs in the wanted ads, there is a purple cloth between the green and pink cloth on the washing line, but when the two are looking at Dino playing with Pebbles, the purple cloth has disappeared. There's also a basket by Wilma that moves to the end of the washing line.
Continuity mistake: When Fred is trying to work out what kind of talent Pebbles has, she has her bathing suit on. When Pebbles is seen crawling onto the stage when it's her turn, she has her regular clothes on, and when Pebbles is on the stage with Dino, she has her bathing suit on again.
Continuity mistake: When Betty and Bamm-Bamm are having their breakfast at the table, you can see there are two white dishes and a blue bowl in front of them, but when Wilma joins them, the white dishes have disappeared. The white dish in front of Bamm-Bamm, and indeed Bamm-Bamm, also disappear when the boy scout serves Wilma breakfast.
Continuity mistake: When Fred is reading his letter about his position being accepted at the Stone Valley Inn, you can see Wilma is sitting in the chair next to him, but in the next shot the chair is empty and Wilma is nowhere to be seen, then she reappears in the chair.
Continuity mistake: When Fred asks Barney what he should do with the envelope the agent handed him, Barney says that they should forget about it. You can see that Fred is holding the envelope in front of him, but in the next shot Fred is holding onto the steering wheel and the envelope is nowhere to be seen.
Continuity mistake: When the Flintstones and the Rubbles are sitting at their table in the pizza parlour, Fred asks Betty if she wants some pizza and you can see there is a large pizza in front of Wilma and Betty, but in the very next shot the pizza has gone.
Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode, watch the colour of the time-machine inventor's outfit. You can see it's light blue when he pulls the lever, but when he gets the Flintstones and Rubbles back to the fair and asks them what happened, his outfit is a darker shade of blue. It then changes back to its lighter shade as before.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Fred and Barney are in the doctor's surgery, the doctor produces a lollipop for Fred. When he produces the lollipop, you can see it's well away from Fred, but as the shot changes the lollipop is much closer to him than it was in the previous shot.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Mr. Slate asks his employees to gather round for a group photo, Fred decides to liven up the situation by giving Sandy a 'hot foot'. When Mr. Slate takes the photo, Fred is lighting the match on Sandy's foot, but the picture that comes out of the camera shows him not lighting the match at all.
