Goofs

In this episode, Kevin watches as the astronauts aboard Apollo 8 film the earth while orbiting the moon. However, the Earth is shown in full color. The Arnolds actually do not have a color TV, as revealed in Episode 9, where Wayne and Kevin attempt to persuade their father to buy them a color television. So the Earth should actually be shown in black and white. See more »
