The Phone Message - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: In the scene which starts with Jerry saying he has never seen an episode of I Love Lucy in his life, two wine glasses switch sides. The one with wine in it is on the left side of the screen, then 5 seconds later it is on the right side. Jerry also takes the cork out of the wine bottle and then in the next shot it is back on, only for the next shot for it to be off again. (00:11:45)

The Heart Attack - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: Elaine walks up to George in bed, and she asks him if anyone's got his apartment yet. For the brief part of dialogue about the zen lifestyle thing, the top sheet is rolled up in a noticeably different way from the rest of the scene. (00:07:00)

The Heart Attack - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: On his deathbed George triumphantly utters "There's nothing wrong with me!"; the doctor cools his enthusiasm down though, saying that he wouldn't go that far. His hands are crossed in front of his body - at the cut though he's suddenly already browsing through George's medical file. (00:08:10)

The Heart Attack - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: The doctor is examining George. George yells into the stethoscope so he takes the buds off his ears. Not just that; he removes the instrument and puts it around his neck. George then freaks out and starts naming various odd and even rather harmless conditions; the doc is wearing the stethoscope again. Flirting with Elaine you can see the instrument sorta shuffles around, with part of it exposed and part of it under the scrubs' collar, now the left side, now the right side. When Jerry breaks off their idyll with the Romeo and Juliet reference, the stethoscope is back around his neck, only to be again in use when George asks "With a knife?" (00:08:00)

The Heart Attack - S2-E8

Revealing mistake: When the two paramedics get off the van to duke it out, look at George lying down in the stretcher. The pillow behind him bears in the last two shots faint purple coloring marks washed out from Jaso Alexander's makeup. (00:18:30)

The Heart Attack - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: When the doctor tells George that he can have some ice cream, he touches his arm. Difference is, in the first shot the clipboard is in the right hand, in the close-up it's in the left hand. (00:09:20)

The Revenge - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: During Elaine's amazingly off-putting flirting with George's boss, she starts mentioning how people don't say "Bless you" as they used to. She is gesturing with her right hand pointing a thumb -but before her "Have you noticed that?" is over, she is already in a new shot with hands joined and fingers entwined. (00:16:00)

The Revenge - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: George walked back into a meeting at his workplace pretending nothing happened. When his boss enters the room, George repeats in two separate the shots, differently, the gesture to hide his face behind a folder. The folder itself changed position before the boss arrived, since it was in his hand at first, then on the briefcase. (00:08:00)

The Heart Attack - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: The belligerent paramedic shouts at the driver "I want that Chuckle back, do you hear me?" pointing a finger at the opening, but his arm is on his own leg in the following shot. (00:18:10)

The Statue - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: The first time we see Ray, he kisses his fiancée's hand. Elaine in that shot is holding her papers, with the thicker black book closest to her chest. A couple of shots later when he bows to "Jerry, lord of the manor" the books in Elaine's arms have switched position. (00:05:50)

The Statue - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: George had enough of Ray's pawn shop story and jumps up calling him a thief. Watch the couple at the table; the woman, wearing a purple sweater, has her hand on the man's arm in the reaction shot, when nothing of the sort was happening in the wider angle. (00:15:30)

The Jimmy - S6-E19

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

The Robbery - S1-E2

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".
