    • In the flashback sequence where Arthur first meets Francine, she licks a lollipop and sticks it onto his head, but note, she licks only one side and sticks the opposite side onto his head.

    • When Arthur runs to the staffroom while he is convinced that Francine is in trouble, he stumbles onto an open pizza box. When the pizza is first seen, the cheese is orange as seen in other episodes, but in the next shot when we Arthur flat on his face on the pizza, the cheese changes color!

    • At the beginning of "Locked in the Library," Prunella can be seen in Mr. Ratburn's 3rd grade class. According to several other episodes, Prunella is in the 4th grade, so she shouldn't have been in the class.
