Samurai Jack mistake picture

Episode XCII - S5-E1

Deliberate mistake: Jack stops his motorbike beside a stream, and Jack's weapon strap crosses over his left shoulder when he walks over to have a drink. The problem is when we see Jack's reflection in the water, his image is not reversed; note the strap is still crossing over Jack's left shoulder. (00:07:20)

UFO (1970)

The Cat with Ten Lives - S1-E3

Deliberate mistake: When MoonBase Interceptor pilots put their helmets on before launch, the mics are on the left side of their helmets, but when they're space borne to intercept UFOs at least one pilot closeup is a flipped shot. Then, after Lake says, "They're wide open now, where are they," the interior closeup of a cockpit is also flipped; note "GYRO" is reversed. (00:02:25 - 00:04:55)

UFO (1970)

The Cat with Ten Lives - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: Right after the "Immediate launch" on MoonBase, when it cuts to Miss Holland, she's walking from her office into Straker's office. The cat runs away from Holland, and in the cat's close-up, it exits Straker's office. However, this doorway is not leading to Miss Holland's office in this close-up. (00:41:20)

UFO (1970)

The Square Triangle - S1-E10

Other mistake: With the red alert at MoonBase, all three Interceptors are launched with their loaded missiles. Then, as the UFO gets closer, the Interceptors are within range, yet Straker orders them not to intercept. However, when the three Interceptor pilots are told to return to MoonBase, all three Interceptors are inexplicably missing their missiles. (00:03:25 - 00:05:35)

Family Guy (1999)

The Big Bang Theory - S9-E16

Continuity mistake: When Bertram sneaks into Stewie's bedroom, he tiptoes past Stewie, who is sleeping. But in the next close-up of Bertram, the shot pulls back and pans the room so we see Stewie's crib is empty. But in the next shot, Stewie is still sleeping, and then he wakes up. (00:10:25)

Episode XXIX - Couple on a Train - S3-E3

Continuity mistake: After Jack releases the train's log load, it thwarts Ezekiel temporarily. When Jack enters the coach car and takes his seat, it then cuts to an exterior shot of the speeding train's passengers as it passes the windows, and Josephine's beauty mark is missing from her right cheek, though we should absolutely see it in this shot.

Episode XXIX - Couple on a Train - S3-E3

Continuity mistake: When the train leaves the station, it begins the journey with three coach cars, but as the train speeds along the number of coach cars increases. Then, by the time Jack defeats the Clench duo, the train's coach cars have multiplied significantly, to over twenty. (00:06:20)

Bob's Burgers mistake picture

Sacred Cow - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Animal Control Guy walks over to Moolissa and states the cow must have had a heart attack, his shirt buttons, badge, shoulder mic, etc, are at his left. Then Animal Control Guy begins to walk back to his van, and watch as mid-shot his shirt buttons and everything else switch to the opposite side (if it's paused we also see his mic cord clips through his arm). (00:17:55)

Better Never Than Late - S3-E16

Visible crew/equipment: While Kate and the family are seated on the Cannonball headed to Pixley, after Charley tells Floyd to look at the pressure gauge (because he forgot to load the tender), when it cuts back to Kate we can see a crew member (animal trainer likely) making hand gestures, at the right side of the screen.

Continuity mistake: While Sir James and Hadley are standing beside the map, Bond asks about his namesake.

Risk and Reward - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: Danny and the ESU enter the warehouse basement to find Bobby, and when they start to return fire, the first guy they shoot knocks over the white plastic lawn chair (beside the recliner) as he goes down. Then, in the next shot facing the door, that white lawn chair is upright (not the yellow table chairs), but in the next shot it's lying on the floor again. (00:32:40)

The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance mistake picture

Continuity mistake: During the election meeting held at the saloon, there's a large sign that reads "Capitol City Here We Come" on the wall by the stairs. We see this sign in numerous shots. When Valance enters the saloon there's still a sign on that wall by the stairs, but now the painted handwriting on this sign is different. Moreover, the original sign that had been by the stairs is now up on the side wall of the saloon, where Valance and his thugs stand; note the handwriting. (01:09:20 - 01:13:45)
