  • When Sparky buried the house while Timmy was asleep, Timmy wishes it back up and Cosmo, Wanda, and Poof can be seen with their wands in this scene. However, in the later scene where the magic fleas are biting people and Timmy wishes them back to normal, Wanda mentions that they can't because Sparky buried the wands, but they just had their wands and granted a wish earlier when Sparky had already buried things.
  • Chet Ubetcha says that Timmy is the worst pet owner of the world even though Mr. Turner made all of Timmy's pets die.
    • It's possible that Timmy's parents put the blame on their son for being a bad pet owner, just like in "That's Life!".
  • After getting bit by Sparky, Vicky drops her chainsaw and it cut a rectangular hole, which is impossible due to the sharp angles. In addition, the cole was made before the line is connected. Although, Vicky later drops her chainsaw again and it cuts a round hole.

  • Jorgen cannot have a niece because in the episode "The Gland Plan" he says "I have to find the Anti-Jorgen when his Fagiggly Gland was acting up, which means he doesn't have a sibling because Fairies can only have the transplant with siblings or anti- counterparts. A similar error occurs with Cosmo in Double-Oh Schnozmo!.
  • When Sparky shows Timmy his photo album, his previous owners clearly aren't fairies, and they can't have fairy godparents because they are not kids. Therefore Sparky is revealing the existence of fairies. Also Sparky said that his previous owners dropped him off at the store. This means his owners had gone to fairy world to pick up and drop off Sparky.
  • When Mr. Turner's rock knocks Timmy off his scooter and through the window, there's a full moon out and it's also dark out. But when Mr. Turner notices the moon, it's daylight again.
