Character mistake: In "I Heart Dancing", the lady at the Krusty Krab tells Spongebob the dancing audition is the next day.

Character mistake: At one point in the show, Roger throws a bucket of water (in disguise as Scotch Bingeington) on Francine claiming "Wet T-Shirt Contest!" Francine looks disgusted when Roger states "Eh, give this one a four" to the guy judging the contest, then says to Francine "Don't feel bad, you've had three kids." Francine replies "I've had two." and Roger gasps and puts a consoling hand on Francine's shoulder. This is wrong because Francine has birthed four children. She previously gave birth to Bailey (Hayley's twin), and Greg and Terry's baby in Season 3 Episode 7 "Surro-Gate." (00:14:15)Travis Love Benson

Character mistake: The math test Tina gets a D on has #5 marked wrong. However it is correct. (Additionally it seems improbable she would actually get #3 and #4 wrong since she obviously understood the concept of how to do the problem and only had a problem with the division for some reason, and these questions didn't require division).Bishop73
Character mistake: In 'No Substitute for Crazy", When Timmy and Sanjay are leaving the school after Mr. Crocker falls down the well, a few cats come up to them and he introduced an orange one as "Omar."
