    Did You Ever Notice?, or what goofs have you seen on KP...

    This thread is to point out details we've each noticed on "Kim Possible:" goofs in continuity; in-jokes the writers or animators slipped into various episodes - things of that nature. I'll start out with a couple things I've recently noticed:
    1) On tonight's rerun of "Return to Wannaweep," on the morning after Kim unplugs Bonnie's alarm clock in order to recharge the Kimmunicator, Bonnie joins the cheer squad wearing her cheer uniform over her pajamas. When Ron first runs up to show Kim the "Frog Fancy" magazine he found in the cabin he shared with Gil, Bonnie's still wearing the pajamas. But after Ron pulls the head off of Gil's horned toad costume and the crowd starts taunting him with cries of "Loser! Lo-SER!," Bonnie's only wearing her uniform and her pajamas are nowhere to be seen, despite the fact that only a minute or two has transpired and she remained with Kim and the other cheerleaders the whole time.
    2) I also just realized today that both Jimmy Blamhammer and Sturges, the obnoxious host of the talk show "Mid-Day Middleton" (from the ep "Homecoming Upset") were voiced by the same actor, due to the fact that they sound so much alike. I hadn't noticed that before.
    Anyway, let the observations begin....

    I think I mentioned this once at the old location, but in "Triple S" Kim and Senor Senior Sr. jump off an airplane at the same time and Senior reaches ground first even though Kim has no parachute.

    Very Good Points!

    At some time, we need to revisit the Goofs section on the main page and revise that to include a more complete listing.

    Good idea! We can use this thread, then, as a basis for updating that section.
    Anyone spot any more?

    Continuity error:
    Tonight's episode, The Full Monkey: In the opening sequence, the establishing exterior shot shows the Possible house in daylight. Yet the view of the sky through Kim's bedroom windows shows stars in a nighttime sky.
    EDIT: Not to mention an oddity: And what's with the fancy curved elevator doors in the hospital scene, where Ron goes to tell Mrs. Dr. P. that Kim's become a monkey? I've never seen anything like that in any of the hospitals/medical centers I've visited....

    Here's one BonnieFanguy posted over on the Bonnie board.

    In "Bonding," Kim+Bon are at Bonnie's house when Brick rides up to take Bonnie on a date.


    The girls see him through Bonnie's window.


    But there doesn't seem to be a window like that that overlooks the driveway.

    Good one! Let's keep posting the mistakes. I'll rename the thread, slightly to that purpose.

    Two things:
    On tonight's repeat of Rewriting History, I noticed that when Kim leans toward the glass display case containing the photo of Mim and Jon and asks, "Why have I never heard of you?", her reflection's all wrong. Since Kim's hair is parted on the right side of her head - her right, which is our left, as we face her, the part in her hair should be the opposite side of Kim's head (our right, and her left). Instead, it's on the same side as we'd see facing her directly.

    Another thing about Rewriting History: After a previous viewing of this ep, I sat down to try and figure out just how long a period of time was showing on Professor Demens' Electro-Static Illuminator when Kim and Ron found it in the museum. I was able to scribble down the numbers on the illuminator's timer, which thus enabled me to work it all out. Here's what I found:

    The timer read 52560000.
    That's 52,560,000 seconds. Divide that by 60, and you get 876,000 minutes. Divide that by 60, and you'll find you have 14,600 hours. Divided by 24, that gives you 608.33333 days, which factors out as 1.6666666 years (I rounded that out to 1.67 for convenience's sake).
    In other words, instead of storing 100 years' worth of static electricity, the professor's device had only built up a charge from over a year and a half.
    Even then, I don't think the device would have still worked a century later. Over time, machines wind down and stop if their power source runs out. And those capable for running over long periods of time are prone to resistance from such factors as increasing friction due to corrosion, lack of lubricants, or even the effects of weathering over time. Not to mention the possibility that somehow the Illuminator could have "shorted out" - that is, somehow the part of the device that gathers static electricity could have made contact with an object that was grounded (you know, connected to the Earth - the "ground" - in some way), thus draining off the built-up charge and rendering the Illuminator harmless. One way for this to happen would be if the Illuminator were to get drenched with rain while still inside the giant taco sculpture on top of the stand. The rain would naturally ground the Illuminator, causing its static electricity-gathering system to short out and lose the entire charge.

    You could make the same objection to the even older booby-trapped monkey temple in "Monkey Fist Strikes."

    (Darn, there goes the whole Indiana Jones series, among many others.)

    The way the counter worked on the machine does seem to indicate it is counting seconds, and that was a mistake on the part of the animators and directors (or it may have been intentional to hurry the action along). What it should of counted was minutes, not seconds. That's because that's what will happen if you take out the calculation for seconds in TWD's work. Therefore multiply the result of 1.67 years by 60 and you get 100 years. In other words there are 525,600 minutes in one year (not counting leap years, yet one more mistake on their part), therefore 52,560,000 minutes in 100 years.
