001: The Case of Burning Building When Shirley checked Bo's arms for burns in the fish shop she says there is a problem with going to the police because Bo's foot- and fingerprints are all over the place. Since she didn't collect his prints that would have been a very hard deduction to make...

002: The Case of Ruby Ring
The camera Shirley and Bo rigged to catch the culprit was loaded with infrared sensitive film. So they could photograph heat emitting objects in the dark. Yet the culprit succeeded in taking the a picture of the Ruby Ring. That would have been impossible with that kind of film. The picture would at least be out of focus.

002: The Case of the Ruby Ring

Molly was with Alicia and Shirley when the ring was stolen. She was about 1 minute with them, and you have to add the time she would have needed to go from the hall to the nurses office. I don't think a security guard would wait so long to shout for help, especially if he was protecting something as valuable as an historic ruby ring.

003: The Case of the Liberated Beasts 1) Bart called Shirley up to three times about his aunt's homing pigeons. Why would he ask her for help? He didn't know Shirley was a detective yet.

2) Shirley deducts that Abe thinks he is Noah from his code name. But if Abe went crazy after being bitten by the Komodo then why did he choose the name?

004: The Case of Precious Cargo
The man that abducted Louisa couldn't possibly put the ladder in a safe manner, attached to the window of the attic.

He also couldn't carry Louisa down without her free will, which if you heard the scream, he obviously hadn't.

And, Louisa's mom was arrested yet her whereabouts are unknown....strange.

005: The Case of Alien Abduction
When Mr Howie tried to steal a chemical that was meant for making a bomb - How did the culprit make the bomb when Howie was caught in the act stealing the chemical? If he/she could already source it from elsewhere getting Mr Howie to do it would be far too elaborate.

016: The Case of the Missing Marbles

Bo is reading a newspaper article off the computer screen and he clearly says 'August 1992' - but Joey has been in jail for 15 years so that would make the current date 2007, which of course would be very wrong.

017: The Case of the Left Thumbprint Shirley put a hidden camera connected to a laser detector. The detector's line runs between the camera and the wall, on the left side of the window. In the exact moment somebody or something crosses the line, the camera takes a picture. Later, when Shirley and Bo develope the picture, we can see a dark figure standing in the room, near the window. But the figure isn't on the detector's line! :-)There is about 1 meter between the figure and the line.

023: The Case of the Cryptic Creature Why would the money hungry captain go into the toilets to find the creature? Sure, the sound was there, but didn't Stink put those port-o-potties there BECAUSE they weren't linked to the sewers?

026: The Case of the Patron Saint A possible story error (one that makes little sense anyway) : Pierre climbs on the ruins to escape, and Shirley follows him. I think: Why did he climb on the ruins? He was soldier, he was stronger and he could run faster than Shirley, he could escape in another direction. Instead of this, he climbs on a dangerous ruin... Is it logical?

027: The Case of the Celestial Signal Shirley, Bo and Bart are in the federal agent's underground warehouse, where they are interrogating Dr. Henry. They distract the agents switching lights on and off. How did Bart know where to stay when Bo switched the lights on, if nobody of them had been there before?

029: The Case of the Crooked Comic Shirley (after being discovered by the officer) jumps into a crate that will be loaded on the plane. A few minutes later, Bo discovers Shirley. The officer opens the crate with a crowbar, that means, it was closed with nails, or something. How could Shirley close it from inside? If the crate wasn't closed, why did he used the tool ?

030: The Case of the Flim Flam Farm In the scene where Shirley and Bo fights on the hay. When Bo falls onto Shirley's hayfever nasal spray bottle he falls on his back. For the medication to work so fast he would have to have fallen on his chest. If Bo falls down like in the show (his back presses bottle) the spray never will take effect!

032: The Case of the Second Take Down in the tunnel, they show the bomb clock counting backwards. Later, they show it again and the clock says the same time still, but about 20 seconds has passed and the 'beeps' in the background show that it was counting down, hence in editing they have used the same footage twice.

032: The Case of the Second Take Shirley, Bo, Bart and Alicia enter the tunnel, walk a few meters through it and enter a hole in it's wall where the bomb was. Shirley said they were under the main bank of Redington, but if you pay attention when they move from the telephone cabin and where the bomb is... they can't have moved more than 20 meters, no matter in which direction. And we know that there weren't any buildings that close to the place where they were filming! There IS a building near enough, you can see it in the view from the hole to outside for a few seconds. But doesn't matter, cause Shirley, Bo, Bart and Alicia walk in the opposite direction down in the tunnel. :-)
