Goofs: The subject was on campus at Salem Bay University. There is a Salem State University, but there's a better chance that the geographical shot they used was either Harvard University or Massachusetts Institute of Technology. (MIT)

  • Right at the beginning of the show, four of Jones' minions are shown moving to specified geographic locations at a synchronous time. Three at in the Eastern Hemisphere: Australia, China, Nepal, and the fourth is in the Western Hemisphere, in New York. Yet all four are shown as being in daylight; this is impossible: if it were daylight in the Eastern Hemisphere, it would be night in the Western Hemisphere, and vice versa.
