Goofs

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

When Doug Remer fights with his best friend, he says he wants a new one, and picks the Squeak who is sleeping in a box in the locker room. However, there's clearly been an adding of sound when Squeak says "Really? Uh... where are we going? The zoo?" since his lips are not moving.

Coop is sucking the fat that was liposuctioned out of Marlon Brando's ass while saying "Oh why would I do this?" He cannot possibly be doing both at the same time.

Coop sings "And I should've been gone" to which Remer replies "I thought we said no more Journey Pysch-Outs." This line isn't actually from a Journey song, but "Oh Sherrie" from Steve Perry's solo album Street Talk.

Errors in geography 

When Coop visits India, the cars are driving on the wrong side of the road, and the taxi's steering wheel is on the wrong side. Drivers in India drive on the left side of the road, so the steering wheel should be on the right.

Factual errors 

Coop is inspired to become a "big sports star" when he catches Reggie Jackson's third home run ball in the World Series. Reggie Jackson's third home run ball was hit into the center field "batter's eye" where no fans are allowed.

During the first championship game the announcer says Coop has hit for the cycle 7 times, We don't see the scoreboard until after Squeek and Remer hit, but after they both get hits it says 22 hits. For Coop to hit the cycle 7 times would mean 28 hits for him alone

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

Some of the more outrageous continuity errors (the sudden appearance in Baxter's hands of the parabolic listening device, for instance) are deliberate jokes.
