Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman

ABC (ended 1997)




  • Season 2 Episode 15: Return of the Prankster

  • Nitpick: When Jimmy got an idea to help with Lois' sleeping problem why didn't he buy ear plugs for Lois rather than earphones?

  • Goof: When Lois & Clark talk to Bobby Bigmouth, Bobby is eating a pickle. But in the episode "That Old Gang Of Mine", Bobby, although he is known to eat everything, gave a pickle away, implying that he doesn't like them.

  • The map of the motorcade labeled New Troy in fact looks like it is a New York City subway map of lower Manhattan.

  • While the Prankster (Griffin) and Victor are going through the hard drive of Lois' computer they discover a novel she is writing. This novel will later become part of the plot in the third season episode "Double Jeopardy"

  • The newspapers covering the walls of the Prankster's hideout have the headline "President wins close election". This doesn't make sense: of course whoever won the presidential election is the president! A proper headline would say the name of the person who was awarded the office. However, it could possibly be the reelection of the sitting president.

  • Goof: Special Agent Carrigan cites, very specifically, the attack of President Jimmy Carter by a swimming rabbit as having occurred April 21st, 1979. However, the event actually happened on the 20th of that year.

  • Nitpick: When Griffin is reading the info on Superman on Lois' computer, he says that the beam that blinded superman was invented by Dr. Faraday. Dr. Faraday invented "the device", but the beam was created by Dr. Leit.

  • When the Prankster freezes the Planet staff, the newspaper that surrounds Perry's face is from Lois' fruitfly article from "Pheromone, My Lovely".

  • The scene where Griffin's father (played by Harold Gould) pretends to be a painter to gain access to Metropolis Power and Light is a duplication of a scene the actor played in The Sting 20 years earlier, in which his character pretended to be a painter to gain access to a telegraph office.

  • Season 2 Episode 14: Top Copy

  • Goof: When Lois breaks the glass to get into Clark's apartment, there is a reflection of the boom-mic next to the knob.

  • Goof: Kryptonite is radioactive, so why would radioactive uranium counteract it? Radiation poisoning is treated by using an agent to flush the radiactive residue from the body, and treatment of the symptoms with antibiotics.

  • Diana Stride is another person who knows Superman's real identity. She saw him on the couch in his apartment, opening his shirt, exposing the suit, as well as the suits hanging in his closet. She lived to tell the world, but since she was sent to prison, no one would believe her. The Planet printed an article saying that her show was a hoax because everyone saw Superman and Clark, together thanks to Martha's Hologram.

  • Goof: When Clark has everybody downstairs for the press conference he is behind the microphones when Superman appears. Right before Superman flies away, you see the wires holding up Dean Cain as he flies.

  • Nitpick: When Diana Stride sprays her left hand to tag Superman so that later she can identify his true identity, when she jumps he saves her she caresses his neck with her right hand. Of course, it's possible she had previously sprayed her other hand, just to be sure.

  • Season 2 Episode 13: The Phoenix

  • The actor playing the driver of the police car transporting Rollie Vale is the same actor who played the robot robbing a jewelry store in the second season episode "Metallo".

  • Goof: When Lois is filling the champagne glass to overflowing she puts it on the floor and cleans the latter. The champagne glass is still full to the top but when Lois picks it up and gives it to Clark, it's only half full.

  • Attorney Sheldon Bender's yacht is named $ue! "U" with a dollar sign in place of the S. There also seems to be a patch over part of the name, as if they put a panel over the yacht's actual name to adjust it appropriately for the episode.

  • Season 2 Episode 12: The Eyes Have It

  • This is the first episode in the series where Clark Kent is seen entering a phone booth and changing into Superman.

  • Season 2 Episode 11: Chi of Steel

  • Lois tells Mr Chow that she has studied Karate and Tai Chi, but in the later episode "Lucky Leon" she says that is currently studying for her brown belt in Tae Kwan Do.

  • Goof: Chen Chow says that he knows Clark because they use the same optometrist. If Clark had an optometrist actually examine his eyes, the optometrist would undoubtedly learn that Clark had very special eyes, and didn't really need glasses!
