- On the New Zealand release, just as the ending credits of Pop Goes the Diesel come to a close, the footage and sound slows down for a second then reverts to the original pitch and tempo. Upon viewing, this can be assumed to be a playback error if one was to watch it, but has been proven to be an editing error.
- On the New Zealand release, the first few seconds of several episodes are cut off.
