Here Come the Double Deckers

A Helping Hound - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: It's obvious that close up shots of the outside of the front of Mrs. Vicker's house are shot in studio while long shots are shot on location, as the brickwork is different.

Happy Haunting - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: When we first see the stately home as the gang arrive (with the coach parked outside) the same shot is used just before the gang get into Albert's car to go home, when the angle changes the coach has disappeared.

United We Stand - S1-E15

Revealing mistake: The councillors put red paint in Beaumont's hat and put it on his head, squirting paint out through the top, but when they are pouring the paint into his hat you can see it already has a hole in it to let the paint out, and the way they are holding the hat shows them covering up the hole to stop the paint coming out before it is put on Beaumont's head.

Man's Best Friend - S1-E14

Revealing mistake: During the show when doughnut dressed as a tramp sits on the end of the bench and his weight causes tiger, who is sitting on the other end of the bench, to go up in the air, you can see the wires lifting her.

Summer Camp - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: When Gerald is trying to stop the donkey from eating the food off the table, the table gets pushed over. When the angle changes Gerald is on the other side of the table.

Summer Camp - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: When the gang are trying to push Gerald's car which is stuck in the mud, the wheel is spinning in the mud but the wheel arch is clean. As soon as the wheel stops spinning the wheel arch is covered in mud, and when the car drives off by itself after it has been left it in gear, the wheel arch is clean again.

The Go-Karters - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: When Scooper has won the go-kart race, the rest of the gang rush over to congratulate him - they are all wearing different clothes to what they were wearing earlier on when they were watching the race.

Show generally

Other mistake: Whenever the gang are in their clubroom (inside the bus), in some scenes the walls wobble when the door is opened or closed.

Season 1 generally

Other mistake: Whenever you see the gates to the yard during the show they are painted green and have a "Wright and Boston scrap metal merchants" sign written on them. But right at the front of the opening titles of every episode, the gates are plain green with no sign-writing on them.
