Power Rangers Zeo picture

Show generally

Other mistake: When assembling the Zeo Megazord, Zeo Zord V is the last to join, forming the head and back of the Zeo Megazord. When it has connected, we see all 5 Rangers slide down simultaneously into the head of the Zeo Megazord. Where it is piloted from and where did they slide down? The head has only just joined, and the other 4 Zeo Zord forms the rest of the body - not enough time for them ALL to slide up, and then back down again.

Kim Possible picture

Kimitation Nation - S1-E16

Other mistake: In the scene where Drakken accidentally "clones" Bonnie Rockwaller instead of Kim Possible, he holds up a picture of Kim to compare the results of his experiment with the real thing. The Bonnie clone, completely encapsulated behind the glass of Drakken's cloning machine (as evidenced by the reflection of light off of it) somehow manages to get a hold of the picture despite this barrier. (She does this without having to break the glass.).

Welcome to the Family Part 2 - S2-E25

Other mistake: Throughout this episode, Max is captured by villains and is about to be bitten by a vat of hermit crabs. It's pretty obvious that between every scene of Max, instead of the platform lowering, it's just getting higher. Clearly, Max should've got to the hermit crabs about halfway through the episode.

Ghost-a-Go-Go - S2-E27

Other mistake: All of their sheets were the same type. The sheet that the "Ghost" supposedly took from them was more silken, not the regular knit.

The Library - S3-E5

Other mistake: Dr. Mike spots a charred Bible within the charred piles of books, and heads into the church. The Reverend is giving a sermon on morality, and offers Dr. Mike the floor and she briefs about certain stories in the book, which would be considered scandalous, without mentioning the book's title, then hands it to the Reverend who agrees such stories are scandalous, until he turns it over, to see that its 'The Holy Bible'. Being a Reverend, he should know The Bible cover to cover, but reacts surprised or shocked over the mentioning of the scandalous stories. (00:36:00 - 00:41:00)

Green Acres picture

Show generally

Other mistake: In the opening sequence Oliver stops the tractor in front of the house by pulling a lever. This lever is not a brake but is to engage a wheel to put a belt around to operate a threshing machine.

Suggested correction: The lever is to engage and disengage the clutch, when he pulls it back that disengages and the tractor would stop.

That's So Raven picture

Show generally

Other mistake: In "Out of Control", Eddie and Chelsea begin sharing notes in class. After Raven has picked it out of the trash, she reads what Eddie and Chelsea have put. Chelsea says, "Can't wait", but how could she? Eddie threw the note and it didn't reach her, just the floor, so Chelsea never read it nor make a reply.
