Toy Story picture
Toy Story mistake picture

Revealing mistake: When Woody falls out of the closet wrapped in the string lights he hears Buzz's voice, and in the next shot as Woody sneaks up to Hannah's room we see Sid's open door and doorway, which looks perfectly normal.However, after Woody rescues Buzz from Hannah's tea party they both stop in the hallway, and there's another shot of Sid's open door and doorway, only this time it's not normal to say the least. All six of the latches, bolts, and locks that are normally attached to the inside of Sid's door are now actually kind of floating there in mid-air right beside the doorway, as if there's an invisible door there. Weird that Pixar artists deliberately did this, but it's bizarrely funny to see.

Dumbo (1941)

Dumbo picture

Revealing mistake: When the elephants are making fun of Dumbo in the train caboose, Dumbo's mother pulls a pin which causes the stall door above the other elephants to fall. When the door bounces back up, you can see that the animators forgot to draw the elephants' heads and trunks and only their bodies are visible.

But when she takes it off, her hair is loose and flowing.

The Care Bears Movie mistake picture

Ranma ½: Big Trouble in Nekonron, China picture

Revealing mistake: When Akane is sneaking out to the kitchen in order to cook something she briefly has a see-through hand, the animators haven't added any pigment and you can see the background cell perfectly.

Coraline picture

Revealing mistake: In the shot right before Coraline finds the hidden door for the first time, she says "Alright Little Me, where are you hiding?" and drops her notebook and pen on the floor. When the notebook and pen are falling, you can see the wires that were used to suspend them while they were being animated. It's a common stop motion technique, but these days they usually try to paint the wires out afterward. It's a pretty severe dutch angle though, and they're only visible for a few frames, so it's easy to miss.

Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit picture

Revealing mistake: As Lady Tottington leaves Wallace's home, the ivy between the windows on the left suddenly changes a bit- a portion gets squashed flat (about 2 bricks down and to the left of the house address numbers) as the area gets a bit blurry. The modelers must have not noticed bumping it while working with the doll.

Team America: World Police picture

Revealing mistake: Although the movie is filmed with puppets on strings, their movements and their surroundings are made to look as realistic as possible. This nitpick shows a moment when that doesn't happen. As the terrorists begin shooting up Paris, one terrorist runs down the street (in front of the bakery) as citizens run in every direction. One puppet (a female wearing a dress with yellow and white stripes) runs off camera to the left. After she runs out of the shot, the shadow of the puppet appears on the building corner (left side of the screen), being lifted up and out of the scene.
