Sergeant Emma - S3-E20

Audio problem: At the end of the show when Alice is blowing the whistle, the whole family comes to the top of the stairs. Mike says "Alice, it's 6 o'clock in the morning" Watch his mouth. It looks as though he curses and the (curse) word was dubbed out.

54-40 and Fight - S1-E15

Other mistake: The scene where Alice is giving Tiger a bath was the same one used in "Katchoo Katchoo", albeit with some audio dubbing thrown in, like when Alice complains about the floor getting wet. (00:04:05)

The Tattle-Tale - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: When Cindy goes downstairs to ask "isn't anyone coming up to say goodnight?" or something similar, when Alice is talking to Mike and Carol about Sam not coming over, Cindy is wearing her pyjamas. She then gets in trouble and goes straight back up to her room and she is suddenly dressed in jeans and a top - her hair has different hair ties in it too.

The Private Ear - S3-E9

The Not-So-Ugly Duckling - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: When Jan comes home and tells her parents that Clark didn't notice her at school, she's wearing a white blouse with a floral design and a red ribbon in her hair, but when she gets to her bedroom and accuses Marcia, she's wearing a striped blouse and a light green hair ribbon. Then when Jan talks to Greg she's wearing a green tee shirt and a dark green ribbon, but when she asks permission to go to the store she's back in the striped blouse and light green ribbon.

Fright Night - S4-E6

Continuity mistake: When Jan, Marcia, and Cindy search the boys' room Cindy finds the slide projector under Greg's bed, and when Marcia holds up the transparency slide with the "ghost" image, the close-up of the slide presents two problems. First, the "ghost" is horizontal in the wide shots, but is vertical in the close-ups, and second, the fingers holding the slide in the close-up do not belong to Marcia.

Click - S3-E11

Continuity mistake: The last line of Alice's recipe, written on the chalkboard, changes from "3 egg yolk" to "3 egg yolks" and back again. (00:06:15)

The Hero - S1-E21

Visible crew/equipment: When the shelf falls in the store, you can see the rope attached to the top of the shelving unit being pulled from off-screen triggering the collapse of the shelving unit, it was not the girl's weight that made it tip.

A Room at the Top - S4-E23

Continuity mistake: In "Our Son, the Man", Greg wants his own room. One night, while in bed, Mike and Carol discuss their options. Carol says, "How about the attic?" Mike responds with, "That would be fine if Greg were only two and a half feet tall." Later, they give Greg the den for a while. However, in "A Room At the Top", after cleaning out the attic, which was now full size, both Greg and Marcia want it for their own private room.

What Goes Up . . . - S2-E11

Revealing mistake: When Peter is on the trampoline, instead of saying "Peter," Carol says, "Go get 'em, Chris!" and a few minutes later the same thing happens after Cindy has a turn alone, you can hear Greg say "Why don't you give it a try, Eve?" (00:18:10 - 00:19:50)

What Goes Up . . . - S2-E11

Deliberate mistake: While Bobby's parakeet is flying around downstairs, before the bird settles down on the TV set there are two closeups of Bobby which are flipped shots, note the furniture and Bobby's PJs. (00:07:00)
