Polymorph - S3-E3

Revealing mistake: The cardboard box that the Cat holds up to block the heat seeking missiles has two pre-cut holes in it. You can just barely see them as he takes the box from the shelf. (00:14:25)


Demons & Angels - S5-E5

Continuity mistake: When Lister is sent flying when the crates explode, his hat falls off, but when he sits up he is still wearing it. It then falls off again when the low Lister spits at him, yet he is still wearing it when he rolls away. (00:13:50)


Me2 - S1-E6

Revealing mistake: When Lister goes into Rimmer's new room, there is a slight glitch with the split screen. When Lister is laughing at Rimmer's newspaper headlines on the door, the camera changes and the first frame only has Lister and Rimmer with the scutters. In the next frame the second Rimmer appears and the scutter on the right has moved. (00:06:10)


Stoke Me A Clipper - S7-E2

Revealing mistake: When Ace accelerates away from the Nazi troops, he is holding a gun in his right hand. He should not have been able to accelerate away as the throttle handle is on the right. (00:03:45)


Blue - S7-E5

Revealing mistake: At the start of the Munchkin song, you can see a circle around Rimmer's head where the footage of him singing is inserted into the footage of the marching puppet. (00:25:10)

Queeg - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: At The End of the chess game, the layout of the pieces shows the first three moves of the game. As the game obviously had more moves than this, the chess board graphic was wrong. (00:25:40)

Answer: Presumably he does, but it's never been used in any material related to the show. He is the only Cat left (as shown in Series 1), so even if he had once had a name, nobody would know it.

Answer: In the book, the Cat finds the concept of a name confusing, as he's convinced he's the center of the universe and the idea that someone wouldn't know who he was is baffling.
