Continuity mistake: When Elvira pulls into Fallwell, the hood of her car blows off and lands paint-side-down. When the boys pick up the hood after Elvira asks them for a push, the hood is now paint-side-up.

Continuity mistake: When Elvira is cooking dinner for Bob, she takes the spoon out of the pot, sets the spoon aside, then says her dish looks like "cocka-doodie." When the camera cuts back to the food it looks different, and the spoon is back in the pot. When Elvira puts some spray cheese on the food, the spoon is back where she set it aside earlier.
