The Robbery - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: Jerry is being grumpy on The Couch with his friends for giving up The Apartment, arms crossed. Notice his right sleeve, down till the wrist. When Carol enters the room with her husband for the first time, Jerry is still with his arms crossed but the sleeve is up, mid-length. (00:20:35)

The Robbery - S1-E2

Character mistake: At the end of the episode, the waitress introduces her next door neighbour, a hot redhead. After saying her line, she leaves, and George says "Nice to meet you..." and is stuck shaking hands with Carol, who he already met before and invited him to the party to begin with. (00:21:45)

The Robbery - S1-E2

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)

The Robbery - S1-E2

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.

Jimmy: Oh yeah, Jimmy's ready. Check Jimmy out. Jimmy's got some new moves. [Slips and falls from the water.] Jimmy's down.

Trivia: Michael Richards invented his patented Kramer entrance in this episode on accident. He missed his cue and thought he would make up for lost time.

More trivia for Seinfeld

Answer: Composer Jonathan Wolff used a synthesizer, although in seasons 7-9, a real bass is used in addition. Wolff also recorded himself making hundreds of mouth noises, pops, and slaps to add to the synthesized bass licks so that each episode has a different theme. The only real "back-story" is Jerry Seinfeld was having trouble coming up with a theme song and talked to a friend who happened to know Wolff. They wanted to avoid that cheesy late 80's sit-com theme song and Wolff came up with what we enjoy now. Jonathan Wolff has also talked about this further in interviews, recently Reed Dunela interviewed him, so for a fuller account of his story; check out "The Wolff of 116th street".
