As with any long-running show there are many inconsistencies between episodes. Characters' life histories, their birthdays and ages are reported differently from time to time as the writers invent new stuff for them that wasn't thought of when the series began. "Facts" are altered to fit the jokes, and a good deal of leeway is allowed.
Season 1 (1985-1986) had a slightly different opening sequence consisting of a different shot of the city behind the show's title, one different clip in-between the credits for 'Beatrice Arthur' and Betty White, and a different clip behind the credit for Rue McClanahan. This open was replaced with the 1986 opening for syndication. The original opening has been restored to the season 1 DVD release.
