Slater's Sister - S4-E16

Plot hole: Lisa, Zack & Screech all talk to JB as if they have known her since she was little. However, they have only known Slater for approximately four years, so them knowing her from a little girl, as implied, wouldn't be possible.

Suggested correction: JB is only featured in one episode. The fact the kids knew her already (even if up to four years) doesn't mean she was known since a little girl...just that they all previously met her at some point.

Ranma ½ picture

Hone made aishite? Akane koi o fukuzatsu kossetsu - S1-E5

Plot hole: Dr. Tofu is able to tell that Ranma was hit by a softball (he says something about the marks like he actually sees them), but Ranma's wound is still covered by the bandage, that he'll remove in the next episode. This is linked to a larger mistake in the following episode. (00:19:55)
