When Howard tears up the Turbo Man display in the toy store, there is a man leaving with a Big Bird in the background. The shot cuts away to another customer. When the shot goes back to Howard, the man in the background can be seen walking away from the point at which we last saw him, as if he paused while the camera was off Howard. Given the speed at which the man was traveling, he should have been farther along at that point.

Errors in geography 

KQRS Radio is a Twin Cities radio station, but at the time of the film's release, it was in Golden Valley, a Minneapolis suburb, not in downtown Minneapolis as shown.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs

In the store on Christmas Eve morning, all the customers and salespeople laugh because there are no more Turbo Man dolls and they claim that the last doll went with a lady in a fur coat. But, if you look closely, you can see customers holding Turbo Man dolls and some on the shelves. However, the boxes they're holding say "Turbo Man" on the top to indicate they are associated with the Turbo Man toy-line. Boxes containing Booster and Dementor are in similar boxes, so they could very well be in the boxes held by customers at the toy store.
