Goofs

  • When Mrs. Crocker was bringing Mr. Crocker a March 15 cake, the background behind her briefly shows the outside, even though the scene is taking place in Mr. Crocker's bedroom.
  • If you pay attention to Crocker's shadow while he's giving his speech, during the whole thing, his shadow's mouth stays in one position.
  • When Timmy traveled back to the 70's in "Father Time", Cosmo and Wanda were Bill Gates' godparents, not Denzel Crocker's. Also, Timmy's dad was called "Dad" back then in Father Time, but in this episode when Timmy calls him that, his Dad does not recognize that name and attempts to correct Timmy with his real one, but is interrupted by a truck.
    • Also in "Father Time", Timmy's parents met when they were children, but in this episode, Timmy's mom dates Sheldon Dinkleberg from when she was a child until the 1980s when Dinkleberg dumped her after becoming rich. After Dad, working as a janitor, mops up her tears, they fall in love and have Timmy ten years later (1992).
  • In the 80's scene some thing were non-existent yet, just like the DeLorean of Back In The Future or the music career of Belinda Carlisle.
