Pee-wee

Visible crew/equipment: When Pee Wee is chaining up his beloved bike you can see the long chain coming up through the bottom of the bike box. Full screen version only.

Pee-wee

Continuity mistake: When P.W. is escaping certain trouble somehow his handle bar comes off (with ribbons) a new one is replaced (without ribbons) - cool bike huh? But in the next scene the new handle has ribbons...

Revealing mistake: When the pancakes are sticking to the ceiling, you can see that when one hits the ceiling, it jumps. The pancakes were actually being dropped on the floor with an upside down shot.

Pee-wee

Visible crew/equipment: Near the beginning of the film, when Pee-Wee unveils his beloved bicycle for the first time by disabling his elaborate garage security system, if you look carefully, a crew member's foot can be seen moving away as the garage door is opened.

Revealing mistake: When Pee Wee is driving while Mickey is sleeping, he is passing all these signs that warn the road is going to become curvy. If you look at the bottom of the signs, you can see they are being moved on a track while the camera stays stationary. Full screen only.

Visible crew/equipment: When Pee-Wee takes one last look at the snake aquarium, a crew member can be seen moving around in a reflection on the glass.

Visible crew/equipment: Look closely when Pee Wee and John the hobo are sitting on the side of a traincar singing and you can see safety straps keeping them on the train.

Continuity mistake: When Pee-wee is sitting on the roadside with his Texas sign facing traffic, the hobo stick at his side changes position between frames.

Audio problem: The carts the guards are chasing Pee-Wee in are electric, which we see when they first get to them and have to unplug them. However throughout the entire chase scene we distinctly hear gas engine sound effects.

Revealing mistake: After Pee-Wee tears through a Godzilla production in the Warner Bros. studios with his bike, he exits the stage, ending up on an alley where he turns left to evade the props and security guards on his tail - one of which has a motorbike. On the pavement beneath him is a curved skid mark from a previous take, not unlike the one left behind by the motorbike seconds later.

Continuity mistake: When Pee-Wee finds the Alamo, he is shown holding a San Antonio travel brochure. Notice how his right hand grips the bottom near a crease and his left hand holds the left side. In the next shot he lowers the brochure and starts to chuckle out loud, but now his right hand is positioned on the right side instead.

Continuity mistake: When Pee Wee gathers everyone together in his basement to discuss his stolen bike, there's a shot of his dog Speck sitting in front of a person wearing horrible plastic pink or orange boots. It's Pee Wee's friend, Dotty. In the next shot, Dotty comes down the stairs...

Continuity mistake: In the pet store fire scene, you see an aquarium full of fish. At one point Pee Wee stops to rescue them by scooping them into a plastic bag filled with water. While he's doing this, the aquarium is nearly empty. In the last scene of the sequence (as he's running out of the store with the snakes), the aquarium is again chock-full of fish.

Pee-wee

Revealing mistake: In the beginning of the movie, when Pee-Wee's breakfast contraption is running, if you look closely at the "orange" that is being squeezed, it is really an orange coloured sponge ball.

Visible crew/equipment: When Pee Wee's getting his beloved superbike out of his secret hiding place you can see a hand holding it up for him.

Other mistake: As the automated setup makes breakfast, it makes a total of seven pancakes (the two that end up on his plate, and five stuck on the ceiling). Trouble is that was only enough batter for one pancake, and no refilling device.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: As the Rube Goldberg type setup works, the gold cherub statue pours batter in the pan the Lincoln statue is holding. When the camera angle changes, the cherub starts to pour the batter again.

Movie Nut

Other mistake: In the beginning, as Pee-Wee waits for the crown in his dream, a bell starts ringing, and everyone leaves, leaving him alone. After all the photographers are gone, there is one more flash from a camera before the transition to his room.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: In the breakfast scene, one shot shows pancake dough being poured onto a frying pan. In next shot, when Pee-Wee goes to the bathroom, the dough is poured again.

Continuity mistake: When Pee-Wee is walking away from his house with his bike, you can see two lawn gnomes behind him, next to his house. When he sees Francis, the lawn gnomes have mysteriously disappeared.
