Best short movie mistakes of all time
Continuity mistake: When Snoopy arrives at the Halloween party, he slides down a set of curtains and then hides behind those curtains. In the same shot, Lucy approaches a tub of water atop which five apples are floating. When the shot changes, there are only four apples floating in the tub and Snoopy has now somehow gotten into the tub and is hiding under the water. The action is constant. How did Snoopy get from behind the curtain to under the water?
Continuity mistake: In the episode 'The 525 CrackerVac' the vacuum cleaner malfunctions (as usual) and Gromit challenges the device like in a duel. The scenery changes to orange like in a sunset and Gromit stands with his back towards the window. On the window sill you can see a cactus. Wallace is in the room near the door. The vacuum cleaner explodes and covers Wallace in ashes/dust. Wallace suddenly has the cactus on his head (also covered in ashes) and judging by the fact that there is a clean area behind Wallace on the wallpaper in the shape of Wallace with a cactus on his head he must have had the cactus on his head before the explosion, but we know he hadn't as the cactus was standing behind Gromit and Gromit stays clean after the explosion, so the cactus couldn't have moved. How did the cactus end up on Wallace's head?
Factual error: The adventurers witness Earth "rising" from behind the lunar horizon. Since the Moon is tidally locked, it always presents the same hemisphere toward Earth. Earth never rises or sets as seen from the Moon's surface; it stays stationary in the sky. No matter that no-one had travelled to the moon at the time - that fact can be deduced just by looking at the moon from earth, and noting that we only ever see one half of it.
Continuity mistake: As Gromit tries to get to the window with the bomb, he is stopped by being hit hard with a large metal oven paddle which swings in from his front right side. When we see Piella holding it, there is a Gromit-shaped dent in it, but it is dented the wrong way, bulging outward on the side he was hit with instead of indented.

Continuity mistake: In 4th black's move, king's bishop go to third row (A3) and capture the white knight. There is not elipsis yet, but. in 6th black's move, Geri's imaginary opponent takes a piece from A4 to B3 and capture a white pawn. but there wasn't any piece previously on A4, in fact, pawn was not moved before, staying on B2, its original place. In the next shot black bishop remains on A3 and white pawn on B2, as nothing was happened.
Continuity mistake: Lulu slides down the banister onto a stool and slides across the floor to the table for her breakfast. She gets to the table and looks at her selection for a moment, the camera still looking from the side and her hands at her sides. It cuts to a close up from in front of her and suddenly her hands are up on the table. Also the cups on the table change shape, from being more conical towards the bottom, to perfect cylinders.
Continuity mistake: The Italian peddler puts some weighted horse shoes on Spunky to inhibit his movement. As the Peddler is leaving and says he will be right back, Spunky is facing him into the building. But then it cuts back from the Peddler to Spunky and suddenly he is facing out the building the opposite direction. It's only after this when he tries to move that he discovers his feet too heavy to lift, yet somehow he got turned around in an instant.
Audio problem: As the short starts, a hand is drawing several animals with musical instruments to be in the orchestra. And during this there is a music score with the animation. The second one is a pig with a tuba. As the left hand reaches in to pull the picture of the pig away, there is a glitch in the music, it cutting out for a moment with a rough scratchy pop sound, then coming back in as the right hand begins drawing a bird with a violin.
Revealing mistake: Right after McQueen asks what the Ghostlight is, it cuts back to the other cars. Luigi is right next to the firetruck and some gas pumps. The firetruck's door is very reflective, and the gas pumps are visible in it. But Luigi is right by the pump, and he is not reflected in the firetruck's door.
