Anachronisms 

When Bill visits Georgie's room he picks up a green Lego turtle which later breaks on the floor. Green Lego brick other than plates for building structures on, or 1/3x1 plates did not exist in 1988/1989. Lego's reasoning behind this is they didn't want children building tanks from the bricks.
In the June section, Lethal Weapon 2 is advertised on the marquee of the Capitol. However, the film was not released in theaters until July 7, 1989.
While Bill's poster for Beetlejuice looks similar to the original one-sheet, it is a reprint from several years later that does not have the same credits layout as what would have been available in 1988.
Though the film takes place in 1989, Richie refers to another character has having a mullet. The term "mullet" being used for a haircut was not introduced until 1994, by the Beastie Boys.

When Beverly Marsh first meets Ben Hanscom, she signs his empty signature book. When she does this, she removes the cap of her pen with her mouth, and holds the cap in her teeth while writing. The camera switches between Beverly and Ben several times while she is writing, sometimes the cap can be seen in her mouth, but other times it is missing.
