Out of the Past (1) - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: Wolverine first enters the sewers by ripping away a fence in the subway. When Jubilee and Gambit follow him, the fence is still intact. When they get closer it is torn again. Odd, really, because on the whole this show has few continuity errors, like self-mending clothes in other cartoons.

Come the Apocalypse - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: When Archangel is lamenting his actions, the communicator devices from Storm's uniform are missing. (00:20:15)

The Dark Phoenix (2): The Inner Circle - S3-E12

Continuity mistake: When Cyclops blasts a hole in the floor beneath Sebastian Shaw and causes him to fall through it, Shaw lands on a catering table. Later when Beast jumps down the hole to attack Shaw, Shaw is emerging from underneath heavy rubble rather than a catering table, and he is inexplicably shirtless. The rubble also changes from being brown just before Beast jumps down the hole, and is then white after he lands. Additionally, the floor goes from being black-and-white checkered to a solid brown color. (00:15:55 - 00:17:05)

'Til Death Do Us Part: Part 1 - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: Beast disarms a member of the Friends of Humanity whilst perched on a street lamp. When the angle changes to a wide shot, Beast is much higher on the lamp post and would have been too far out of reach to disarm the man in the first place. (00:11:45)

Beauty and the Beast - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: When Graydon Creed is interrogating Carly, their positions in the room are different depending on the shot. When first shown, she is tied to a chair, with a bare wall a few feet to her left. When Wolverine enters the room, he enters through a door that is now on the wall on Carly's left that was previously bare. When Wolverine tells Creed to let her go, they are suddenly right next to a wall on Carly's right. Then when Creed is pointing the gun at Wolverine and for the remainder of the scene, Carly is suddenly facing the door Wolverine came through. (00:15:35 - 00:17:50)

Show generally

Question: Does anyone know why Gambit was featured less and less in episodes as the show went on? He was one of the most popular characters in not just X-Men, but all of Marvel Comics around the time this series first aired, so unless it had something to do with his voice actor's contract, it seems odd they wouldn't have utilized him more.
