The Naked Ant - S1-E12

Plot hole: In the Upper Class Twit of the Year Show, there are five contestants. However, after Oliver runs himself over, in the events that follow there are only four props for the remaining twits (four mannequins, rabbits, and guns); since Oliver's death was unforeseen, shouldn't there be five of each? (This mistake, by the way, is rectified in the film version of this sketch).

Is There a Doctor in the House? - S1-E13

Plot hole: Lots of factors here: The doctors end up with the opposite kids that they were supposed to have... Why didn't they simply switch in the first place rather than go through all the drama? Also, the male doctor admits Alice let him in and most likely Alice would have told him first door on the right (like she's given directions in other episodes) to locate Peter. And the biggest question of all is, what doctor would make a house call and not look for their patient rather than just ending up with someone else they were not called to see (remember, each parent called their own doctor to see their biological kid).

That's Snow Ghost - S1-E17

Plot hole: It's established at the end that Greenway used transparent skis to create the illusion that the Snow Ghost could fly. But there's no way skis could have enabled Greenway to fly over the gorge, especially from a standing position. (00:05:30)
