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: When Sarah holds Toby and says, "Knock it off, come on. Stop it. Stop it," her ring is on her middle finger. However in the wide shot, still holding Toby, she says, "I can bear it no longer..." her ring is now on her ring finger.

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.

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: When Sarah is hanging on the branch over the bog, Ludo calls a rock and the rock rolls into the bog, and is pretty round, with no large flat areas on it. However when it's floating in the bog, Sarah jumps onto it and the rock now has a very large flat area.

Continuity mistake: When Sarah is telling the story to Toby, she stands in front of the mirror, and puts Toby's stripy hat on. In one shot, she pulls it to the back of her head, but in the next shot, it's pulled down on her head, as normal.

Revealing mistake: During the 'Dance Magic Dance'-sequence in Jareth's throne room, David Bowie throws up a baby dummy (it's near the end of the song).

Labyrinth mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Sarah walks into the darkened bedroom, in the shots facing the double back doors the hanging light fixture over the crib, the mobile, and picture beside it are all visible. When Jareth appears, in the first shot facing him, the mobile hangs lower (note the archway), the picture is closer to the floral trim around the archway; and solely for Jareth's dramatic entrance, the light fixture is gone - though it should easily be visible in this shot, and the crib is now at an angle.

Continuity mistake: Sarah goes to pick up the fairy that dropped right by the wall. But in the next shot, you see Sarah stand up with the fairy in her hands, and she is now standing quite a way from the wall.
