Goofs

Puddy and Elaine are supposedly in Oslo, yet when Puddy is counting his money, we can see out of the back of the car they are in. Not only does the road have a dual solid yellow line (in Oslo; it would be a single, dashed yellow line); but they pass by an American railroad crossing sign, the back of an American stop sign is visible, and they are obviously not in Europe at all.

Great episode.
10 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Plot: Kramer starts using butter to wear when he tans but it eventually fries him. Newman eventually wants to eat him. George gets a job at Play now and acts like he is still a cripple. Elaine takes Puddy to Europe and on the way back they keep breaking up and getting back together.

The butter shave, like all Seinfeld episodes, is hilarious. I have reviewed many Seinfeld episodes and given almost all of them a 10. I was glad to see Puddy return. Puddy is a great character who is really stupid. The Butter shave is a great episode of Seinfeld, like all of them.
