Revealing mistake: While Grandma Dynamite is on the roof sending smoke signals, Sonny is standing in the tree. When Sonny starts laughing we can see the bottom of his jagged clothing is now a mere straight line and his legs have vanished. (00:16:45)

Dino Disappears - S4-E4

Continuity mistake: While Fred and Barney are being chased by the police, in the closeup of the stop/go signal we see two ropes beside the monkey's hand - one controlling "stop" and one for "go", but in the wideshot there's only one rope hanging from the post, apparently controlling both "stop" and "go" signals.

Little Bamm-Bamm - S4-E3

Continuity mistake: During the hearing, when Perry Masonry is questioning his client about being fixed financially, part of Perry's string loop closure on his clothing vanishes within the same shot, and then reappears. A few moments later Perry's two parallel strings are crisscrossed, then both are back to normal. Later, when Barney asks Perry if he can hold Bamm-Bamm, once again Perry's parallel strings become crisscrossed. (00:20:35)

Bowling Ballet - S3-E4

Other mistake: At the start of the episode we're shown a preview of the episode's plot: while Fred stretches his leg on the ballet bar his leg gets stuck and when the ballet teacher pushes his leg down, the part of the ballet bar which Fred is leaning on is gone. What's odd is that during this scene within the episode the ballet bar is perfectly intact. (00:00:25 - 00:14:40)

Show generally

Question: At the end of every episode, it shows Fred putting out the sabertooth tiger. Has this animal ever appeared in any of the episodes? If yes, what episodes was it in? If no, then why show Fred putting an animal he doesn't own outside?

Answer: The name of the pet is "Baby Puss." He has appeared in episodes, but only a very few. The first episode was probably "The X-Ray Story" from season 2.
