Factual error: During the entire series, the view of Jerry's door from the hallway is of a flat wall with the door in line, yet from inside The Apartment, not only does the kitchen angle into the hallway, but Jerry's fridge is recessed into the wall. The wall behind it should be blocking the hallway completely.
Continuity mistake: The exterior shot they use when establishing Monk's cafe is completely different than what is inside in The Cafe. First the outside has neon lights with just RESTAURANT. The inside of The Cafe, the menus, windows and door all have Monk's cafe logo on them. Secondly the door should be in the middle of the restaurant, instead the interior shows it to be to the left of the restaurant and somewhat to the side. Lastly the windows in the exterior shot are extremely large with no writing, logo and curtains pulled to the side. Inside The Cafe, the windows are much smaller, with permanent curtains coming halfway up the windows and the rest being blocked by Monk's cafe logo.
Continuity mistake: There are inconsistencies regarding how old Jerry and George are. In Season 2's The Heart Attack, George states he is 33 years old. In Season 3's The Stranded - just one year later - Jerry states that he is 36 years old. However, in Season 9's The Butter Shave, it is revealed that they are just four months apart.
Continuity mistake: The inside and the outside of the Costanzas' home do not match up. From the inside, you can see that if you walk in the front door the kitchen would be on your left and a sitting room-type area is on your right (accessible from the living room). However, from the outside, it shows bay windows on what would be the left (kitchen) side and a door to another townhouse on the right (sitting room) side.
Continuity mistake: In the pilot episode "Good News, Bad News", look out when the waitress discusses the two coffee pots. She says "Trusts me George, nobody wants to see you on caffeine", and the unbuttoned top of Jerry's jumper is noticeably folded - but straightens instantly in his reaction shot. Also it should be noted that she walks away without actually pouring coffee to George - you have to assume a little amount of time elapsed between that reaction shot with Jerry and the following on George.

Continuity mistake: When Jerry is making the "Lo Mein" joke inside the video store, he is waving his hands around. The hands are out of frame; still his right hand pops in view twice showing he is holding a tape - but he is holding none before and after and he positioned himself away from the shelf. (00:01:35)
Continuity mistake: Throughout the video store scene, a golden sticker keeps switching position on the adult tape Elaine is holding; The Switch can be noticed particularly easily when they talk about the wedding; Elaine repeats "A wedding?" and the box has no sticker, but few seconds later she laughs about the combover and the sticker is showing. (00:02:50)
Continuity mistake: Jerry is playing with his mom; she handles him a note with Elaine's message. He says "I am such a jackass." His mom asks "She knows... what?" In that shot, Liz Sheridan 's hand is nowhere near her face, where it should be to match the shots before and after. (00:16:55)
Continuity mistake: During the initial conversation when the camera is on Elaine there's a chair prominently featured in the background, with a jacket on the back. The chair turns around between shots - in particular, when Jerry proudly proclaims himself "Master Packer" it is positioned at the desk instead of facing towards the camera. (00:01:10)
Continuity mistake: George is chatting with Elaine as he is waiting for Jerry. Elaine splits an Oreo cookie. When he mentions her "price range", she is not seen fully but her left hand is in frame and she brings it up. When George turns around to address Jerry though, it's her right hand to be raised.
