  • In the scene where Timmy is writing, the girl next to him has a giant paper as well, but in the next scene, only Timmy has a paper in front of him, which is kind of bigger.
  • Also, when Timmy looks out the window the same girl next to him is still the same, but in the next scene where everyone holds Sparky, the girl has a totally different design.
  • Cosmo, Wanda, and Poof go up to Sparky in fairy form at the derby. According to Da Rules, fairies can't reveal themselves.
  • The true-love block stopped Timmy from turning Sparky back into a human because he loved being human. However, when Timmy finds Sparky, he claims that he never liked being a human. Therefore the true-love block shouldn't have stopped him.

  • Couldn't Timmy have wished that Doug Dimmadome allowed Sparky to come to the derby and dog park?
