Ginger Kids - S9-E11

Continuity mistake: When Stan, Kyle and Kenny are going to Cartman's house to turn him back to normal and get surrounded by the Ginger Kids, Kyle is wearing his pyjamas with a coat over the top. But by the time he and Stan reach the barn to shelter from the attacking Ginger Kids, he's suddenly wearing his normal green trousers.

My Future Self n' Me - S6-E16

Question: When they get back at Motivation Corp at the end, how did Cartman manage to get into the building, along with his Mexican painting crew, and also how did they manage to paint the whole place in crap so quickly before any of the staff came in for the day?

Chosen answer: Cartman has a knack for getting into places he's not supposed to be. We don't need the details. As for how they worked so quickly, either Cartman worked them mercilessly or it's a cartoon, your pick.

Cherokee Hair Tampons - S4-E6

Question: When Cartman thinks his kidney has been taken, and he goes to the hospital to have it put back in, the doctor has him sign a consent form for the operation, which we find out later is a release form for Cartman to be Kyle's kidney donor. But since Cartman is a child, shouldn't his mother be the one to consent and agree for him to have the operation, not him? I'm asking since neither her name or signature is anywhere on the release form Dr Doctor pulls out at the end when Stan reveals the plan to Cartman in the recovery room.

Chosen answer: His mother could have signed a different release form, especially since she's in on the plan to trick Eric into the transplant.

Towelie - S5-E8

Continuity mistake: In this episode, Cartman discovers Sharon's used tampon in the bathroom bin (which causes Sharon to buy the boys the Okama Gamesphere so that they don't mention it any more), but in season 2's "Spooky Fish", it is indicated that Sharon has started her menopause (Aunt Flo won't be visiting any more) so her periods should have stopped by this point.

Chosen answer: They wouldn't have believed him. Or brushed it off, because Grandpa was probably trying to get them to kill him too.

Mr. Hankey, the Christmas Poo - S1-E10

Character mistake: When the class are practising the nativity, Mrs Broflovski comes in and berates Mr Garrison for casting Kyle in the part of Joseph of Arimathea, but Joseph of Arimathea wasn't the husband of Mary, Jesus' mother, but a disciple of Jesus who helped in the burial of Jesus after his crucifixion.
