Room for Two - S4-E21

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)

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.

Bowling Ballet - S3-E4

Other mistake: At the start of the episode we're shown a preview of the episode's plot: while Fred stretches his leg on the ballet bar his leg gets stuck and when the ballet teacher pushes his leg down, the part of the ballet bar which Fred is leaning on is gone. What's odd is that during this scene within the episode the ballet bar is perfectly intact. (00:00:25 - 00:14:40)

Show generally

Question: At the end of every episode, it shows Fred putting out the sabertooth tiger. Has this animal ever appeared in any of the episodes? If yes, what episodes was it in? If no, then why show Fred putting an animal he doesn't own outside?

Answer: The name of the pet is "Baby Puss." He has appeared in episodes, but only a very few. The first episode was probably "The X-Ray Story" from season 2.
