    • TRIVIA (15)

      • Goof:
        After catching the paper from the fortune cookie, Miss Bisby says "I told you I'd help you out, Mr. T!", yet she had barely said two words up to this point let alone a whole sentence.

      • Goof:
        After the fire at Jeff's parent's shop, we see a building marked "Brooklyn Police". However Brookyln doesn't have it's own police force. Instead it is covered by the New York Police Department.

      • Goof:
        In one scene, Dozer, who was sitting in front of Miss Bisby, gets up and starts walking across the room. Mr. T asks Dozer what's up, but in the wide shot Dozer had magically leapt backwards several feet and was sitting in front of Miss Bisby again.

      • Goof: As someone who wants to be a lawyer (as established in the first episode) Woody should know not to pick up potential evidence (which he knew as he called it an "arson bottle") with his bare hands.

      • Goof:
        After figuring out the clue on the second fortune cookie, Mr. T says it points to "1776 Water Street". However, any building with such an address in Manhattan would be under water in the East River.

      • Goof:
        At one point we are shown a Manhattan street sign that reveals that we are on "1000 W." block of Plymouth Street. There are only two problems with that; One, there is no Plymouth Street in Manhattan, and two, 1000 West on any street would be somewhere in the Hudson River.

      • Goof:
        Before when Jeff's parent's shop was doing badly, they needed him to quit the gymnastics team and come home, but now that they need to build a brand new shop and restart the whole business from scratch, they don't need him at all.

      • Goof:
        Jeff's mom says that they didn't want Jeff to know business was bad, even though it was practically the first thing they told him when he arrived.

      • Goof:
        At one point, Robin goes undercover disguised as a Chinese woman. Surely a better person for the job would have been Kim due to her actually being of Asian descent that would have fit the disguise much better.

      • Goof:
        While talking to Jeff outside the police station, Woody goes from wearing his white, red and blue jacket (like Jeff's) in shots from behind him, to wearing a plain white t-shirt in shots facing him.

      • Goof:
        Apparently trying to avoid leaving fingerprints, the firebug picks up Jeff's discarded bottle using a stick, but he's already wearing gloves making the use of the stick pointless.

      • Goof:
        Spike, despite not being a gymnast and being shorter than everyone else, somehow manages to jump at least 10 feet with everyone else into the air to grab the fire escape to avoid the flaming dumpster.

      • Goof:
        After Mr T. and the kids jump up onto the fire escape to avoid the flaming dumpster, we can see that the alley they were in was wide enough for them to have simply stepped out of the way instead of doing all the jumping.

      • Goof:
        At the beginning of the episode in the Chinese restaurant, Mr. T's table was close enough to the masked villain's table for him to overhear Jeff talking about his parent's bookshop. However, after the waiter spill the fortune cookies onto Mr. T's table, it had suddenly moved to the other side of the restaurant.

      • Goof:
        In the live-action segment at the beginning of the episode, Mr. T holds up a single fortune cookie and asks us if we know "what these are". Then without giving us a chance or answer he tells us that if we said "fortune cookies", we were right. However he only had one cookie making both his statements incorrect.
