Caroline in the City trivia - Caroline in the City Fansite
Since each episode of the show was shot twice there were several continuity problems, like:
- in Caroline and the Cereal, before Caroline even knows that she is getting her own cereal, there is a box of "Sweet Carolines" sitting on her counter
- in Caroline and the Used Car Salesman Richard applies for job in Crazy Fred's as used car salesman, but when he arrives to the office there is already label "Richard" on the drawer behind Fred's back
Caroline real address
In the series description it's said that Caroline's appartment is set somewhere in TriBeCa, but according to Fred Baron, the producer of Caroline in the City, the cartoons (used between scenes) shows what 'Caroline's building, at 168 Duane Street, would look like filtered through her vivid imagination'. And actually, as you can see, there is some similarity.
