Batman: The Animated Series

Correction: Clayface wasn't faking losing control of his abilities. He really was losing control. When Clayface saw all the characters he played over the years as Matt Hagen, he began turning into each of them involuntarily but, because there was too many of them, he became overwhelmed and couldn't stop transforming. He even begs Batman to shut off the screens. Https://

Correction: It's not a plot hole for something to not be revealed. A plot hole is an inconsistency that goes against the logic established by the story.

Corrected entry: Mr. Freeze's cell at Arkham Asylum has been modified to accommodate his inability to survive outside of sub-zero temperatures, but his cell has a barred window which could easily allow warmer weather to interfere with the temperature regulation (the episode's opening scene states that Gotham is in the midst of the hottest August on record).

Correction: A single small window even in an area of high heat would not be able to interfere that much in a sub-freezing room with a dedicated hyper-cooling system.

Other mistake: When Batman is watching the security footage of Victor Fries' accident, at first Fries is addressing the camera directly which follows him and pans according to his movements and Ferris Boyle interrupting him, which would suggest a second person was in the room with a handheld camera. But after Ferris Boyle enters the room and orders Fries' experiment terminated, there are several cuts from various angles in the room suggesting surveillance cameras. The surveillance style footage also often conveniently cuts to the face of whichever person happens to be speaking or will cut to a certain angle in order to put emphasis on the action, all of which would require multiple mounted cameras and purposeful editing by either Boyle or one of his subordinates, which would be completely illogical since they don't want anyone to see the footage in the first place.

Trivia: The series was animated on darker (typically black) paper as opposed to standard white paper. This helped aid in the show's aesthetic, and also helped save time when animating nighttime sequences, since they wouldn't have to paint the entire background black.
