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.

Continuity mistake: At the carnival scene, the shot zooming in on the square shows that the Juggler's balls are blue. In all the other shots, they are white.

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.

The Mild Ones - S3-E11

Max: When the moon is full, the tide is high.
