The Christmas Coffeepot - S20-E12

Audio problem: In the US version, Glynn says "Oh, what? What? Ooh, it's you again..." but in the UK version, the line is omitted. As a result, his eyes move as he is saying something. However, the line is not absent on most UK versions of the episode on YouTube.

Pop Goes the Diesel - S2-E12

Plot hole: When Duck and Diesel leave the shed, Diesel follows Duck instantly, but the tracks they are on both lead to the turntable. As they are on different tracks to each other, it would be impossible for Diesel to follow Duck that quickly as the turntable could only be set to one track at a time.
