Mr. Big - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Max is phoning the Chief to let him know the mission's been accomplished, he takes the oars out of the oarlocks before opening his shoephone. The oars change from being out of the oarlocks in the closeups to still being in the water in the long shots for the rest of the episode.

School Days - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Max is walking around the school grounds he walks up to man breaking a piece of wood. The man breaks a piece of wood and then bends down to pick up a new piece, leaving one on the ground. The shot changes and Max is standing there talking and the man breaks the piece of wood and bends down to pick up another one (which should be the last piece). However there is another piece left on the ground.

The Mysterious Dr. T - S3-E13

Mr. Big - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Max is attacking the boat there is a shot from inside the cabin. Watch the door. Before Max shoots, there are a series of holes in the shade covering the door (they look like bullet holes).

Don't Look Back - S3-E18

Factual error: In this episode, Max is wrongly convicted of murder in the first degree. However, first degree murder is actually pre-planned murder. As revealed earlier when the Max impostor holds up the bank, his partner compliments him on killing the guard as though it was a spontaneous decision. As the court does not know whether killing the guard was part of the plan, it was most likely that Max would be convicted of second-degree (intentional, but not pre-planned) murder.

Run, Robot, Run - S3-E23

Add time

Run, Robot, Run - S3-E23

Other mistake: The announcer says that the competitors have to run a mile in seven laps. When Hymie begins running, it is clear that the track is way too long for seven laps to qualify as a mile. Maybe it qualifies as 4 miles, perhaps.

Add time

Run, Robot, Run - S3-E23

Factual error: In several shots in the mile run, Hymie is in the same lane as the Iron Curtain runners, which is illegal and results in disqualification.

Add time

Spy, Spy, Birdie - S3-E22

Continuity mistake: In the episode, first Siegfried states that he was contacted in his apartment by Mr Pfister. Later, when talking to Max and 99, he states that Pfister stopped him in the street and asked him.

Add time

Other mistake: There are several shots of the carrier pigeon flying home from the group of agents, but in those shots it is not a pigeon. Pigeons do not have wings that big.

Add time

Spy, Spy, Birdie - S3-E22

Add time

Revealing mistake: The drawers in Max's hotel room have no bottom part in them, but Max passes right between the two drawers when he straightens up, so they have no inside-facing part either.

Add time

Viva Smart - S3-E2

Other mistake: The glass of lemonade that the room service drinks is poisoned. The room service says it's for the other room when Max tries to drink it, but if you look closely, Don Adams does drink a bit of the liquid, so he should have died.

Add time

Continuity mistake: Max and 99 are sitting on the sofa. There is a knock at the door and Max fires 3 bullets into the door from a gun. Later, the same day the door is shown behind Max and 99 and there no gunshot holes in the door. Also, 99 changed her clothes and Max still has on the same clothes.

Add time

The Groovy Guru - S3-E15

Visible crew/equipment: When Max and 99 are trapped in the room with the hatch that leads down to the Guru's chamber, the filmmakers didn't bother to make it seem like a giant hole in the ground, and they also didn't bother about the floor of the set being about ten centimetres below the hatch.

Add time

Leadside - S4-E23

Plot hole: Leadside brings the exact question up in this episode and it never gets answered: who's driving the van?

Add time

Shock It to Me - S4-E22

Plot hole: Zharko's process of using the dead bodies of agents and reviving them could only work if he had them at about at most a day after they were killed. Since his secret lab is on a deserted island in the middle of nowhere, they could not have got the bodies to him in time. The Chief also said that the bodies suffered severe damage, so their ability to move would be seriously hindered, but they work fine.

Add time

Closely Watched Planes - S4-E3

Factual error: If there really was a hatch leading into mid-air in the airplane bathroom, instead of being soundless like shown, it would be incredibly loud and Max would have noticed. Also, the sudden pressure change would have sucked him out no matter what he did to stop it.

Add time

The Mild Ones - S3-E11

Character mistake: The leader of the Purple Knights says that they would only be bike riders if they couldn't tell which gender someone was by their hair. This is a major mistake, because if you look at the hair of the Purple Knights, it's incredibly easy to tell which gender someone is.

Add time

Run, Robot, Run - S3-E23

Revealing mistake: When Hymie does the high jump, when the film cuts to a shot of him clearing the bar, Hymie's hair is curly when it should be flattened down like when he took of and as he landed. It is obviously a stunt double.

Add time

Mr. Big - S1-E1

Audio problem: Max is firing a weapon on the garbage scow when his gun suddenly stops. He exclaims "It's jammed!", but his lips don't move. Also, what is he firing at? There's nobody there.

Add time

Supersonic Boom - S3-E6

Plot hole: The scheme to lead a blindfolded Max and 99 to what they think is the airport via an illusion room would not work the way they do it. Since the base is underground, there is no way that what they did to represent ascending to ground level that would make a person think they were above ground.

Add time

To Sire, with Love: Part 2 - S4-E21

Revealing mistake: When the tarantula is released into the room, the spider is a plastic model in its container when it's on Max's shoulder, and when they kill it with the horseradish.

Add time

Schwartz's Island - S4-E13

Revealing mistake: When Max accidentally shoots the life raft with the flare gun, he visibly doesn't make a hole in the raft. It's likely it's ink or ash or another black material to look like the raft had a hole burned through it.

Add time

Pheasant Under Glass - S5-E1

Revealing mistake: When Max crashes through the wall in the prologue, you can easily tell it's a stunt double. You don't even need freeze frame to see it, as the screen freezes, stylistically fades, then the title sequence starts.

Add time

Audio problem: When Max crashes through the wall, he exclaims "A Baby?!"; however, his lips don't move.

Add time

That Old Gang of Mine - S3-E10

Add time

Show generally

Character mistake: Season 2, Episode 27 'Pussycat Galore' :Maxwell translates his famous line "And loving it' into the German 'Und damit gefreut'. Agent 99 who claims to speak German fluently confirms it. This translation is both far away from the meaning and doesn't make any sense at all. The right translation is 'Und liebe es'.

00:09:50

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Season 2, Episode 6 "Casablanca" : When the chief stops Maxwell from beating the cab driver, he holds back Maxwell's arm by the very prominent cuff. After the following cut he holds it by the sleeve (and no sign of the cuff).

Washington 4, Indians 3 - S1-E6

Witness for the Persecution - S3-E3

Plot hole: In this episode, the villain makes a phone call to KAOS headquarters when he's captured demanding that they kill Max to stop him testifying in court against him. Later, several say that Max is the only witness to the villain's crimes, but the Chief and 99 were in the room when the villain made the call, so they could have been witnesses to "conspiracy to commit murder."

Add time

Dr. Yes - S3-E9

Plot hole: Doctor Yes' execution trap involves a booth flooding with water, drowning the occupant, and the water pushes a float upwards, eliminating another via a spinning blade. However, several times the float reaches the top of the booth, and the spinning blade doesn't kill anyone. There's also a breathing space at the top of the booth, so people couldn't drown in there.

Add time

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: There are never two people in the car. The Chief, Max, and 99 even refer to "him" every time and not "them". Perhaps the submitter thinks the headrest of the empty seat is a person.

Bishop73

Supersonic Boom - S3-E6

Revealing mistake: The lift for going in and out of the KAOS base is meant to be sturdy metal, but it wobbles like a prop when the KAOS agent drives off it.

Add time

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: Assuming the submitter meant Max (since there is no Ma character in this episode), the agents aren't firing at anything in the room other than the Cube of Safety, which isn't made of a spark-able material nor would it "explode".
