Visible crew/equipment: After Sarah meets Sir Didymus at the Bog of Eternal Stench, Sir Didymus climbs on Ludo's back. While he is up there, the bottom portion of Didymus' right hand 'puppet control rod' is seen being controlled on Ludo's right side. The top portion of his right hand control rod is seen many times throughout his shots. His left hand control rod is concealed as his staff.
Visible crew/equipment: When Sarah and Hoggle are in the Bog of Eternal Stench and they almost fall in, look in the top left hand corner of the overhead shot and you will clearly see a boom microphone.
Visible crew/equipment: In Goblin City, six guards gather together and one says, "Steady men. Hold your ground." The huge boulder comes rumbling towards them and hits them head on. In the wide shot as they lift off the ground, the tall pipes that create the white smoke are seen beneath them.
Visible crew/equipment: As Sarah, Ludo, Hoggle and Sir Didymus finally walk into Goblin City and reach the fountain, they face the stairs with the surrounding spike walls. In the next two shots, the Goblins appear behind the spiked walls, and in the second shot, on the right, a puppeteer's arm - wearing a short sleeved blue shirt, is amusingly visible under his Goblin soldier puppet; the top of the head of another puppeteer is visible to his right!!
Continuity mistake: Sarah sits in her fake room, picks up the book, 'The Labyrinth' and is seen in her reflection. She then says, "Through dangers...take back the child you have stolen." When the Junk Lady asks, "Don't you like your toys?" and also when she gives Sarah the music box, Sarah is seen. In each shot the things behind Sarah's shoulders and in front of her are different, yet, the Junk Lady did not add anything between these shots.
Continuity mistake: Just after Hoggle pulled Sarah up, away from the Fireys he is standing by the rope he used to pull her up. In one shot as Hoggle says "Down, go away" the rope is hanging down off the ledge, but in the next shot, all the rope is pulled up, away from the ledge, and is in one big heap.
Continuity mistake: When Sarah angrily goes into Toby's nursery to retrieve Lancelot, as she screams, "I hate you!" to Toby, who is in the crib, the crib's legs are visible and there are NO casters (wheels) attached to the legs. However, in the rest of the shots, whenever visible, there are ball bearing casters on the legs of the crib.
Visible crew/equipment: At the start of the film, when Bowie sings the word, "Underground," the last word of the song, it's just at that moment the screen goes from black background to a backdrop of trees in the real park, which is the same moment the animated owl turns into a real owl, the wire attached to the real owl's left foot is visible. There is a jess (strap) around its left foot, that is also clearly visible when he lands on the obelisk in the park.
Continuity mistake: At the Bog of Eternal Stench, Sir Didymus is on Ludo's back and whacking Ludo on his head repeatedly. In the next shot Ludo bends over and Sir Didymus, who holds a clump of Ludo's hair in each hand, flips over Ludo's head. Sir Didymus' staff falls in front of Ludo's face between the clumps of hair onto the ground at his feet. Yet after Ludo sends Sir Didymus flying, way behind him, Sir Didymus jumps out from behind the rock with the staff in his hand.
Visible crew/equipment: After the Masquerade scene, you see Sarah falling on top of a dump. When she falls, you can clearly see the wires attached to her letting her down.
Other mistake: In Sarah's room, after the close-ups of Lancelot's empty shelf space and of Sarah beginning to say, "Someone..." as she finishes, "..has been in my room again," in this wide shot, while still on her bed until she leaves her room, there is a mark across Sarah's forehead that extends to the left side her eye. It isn't in the previous or following shots.
Continuity mistake: This can only been seen in the letterbox version of Labyrinth. After Sarah says, "It's all junk," the garbage lady grabs a ballerina music box and says, "Well what about this, this is not junk," and hands it to Sarah. She takes it, then for a second it cuts back to the garbage lady. The music box is still sitting on the table after it was handed to Sarah.
Continuity mistake: In the park, Sarah begins reciting the lines, "Through dangers untold...beyond the Goblin City..." and her hair in back is pulled up very loosely in her barrette, seen clearly as she speaks. Yet in the shot of her back, when Merlin barks, her hair is twisted perfectly in the barrette.
Visible crew/equipment: When Hoggle jumps off the wall's ledge onto the gate's metallic robot, the lines attached to Hoggle are visible. Hoggle then yells, "Get out of there!" to the controller of the giant robot. As he leaps on top of him, and when Hoggle says, "My turn now," the lines attached to Hoggle are seen again.
