It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown picture

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? (00:18:30)

Wallace & Gromit: Cracking Contraptions picture

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?

It's Magic, Charlie Brown picture

Le Voyage Dans La Lune picture

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.

Wallace and Gromit: A Matter of Loaf and Death picture

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.

A Charlie Brown Christmas picture

Continuity mistake: The string of Christmas lights which the Peanuts gang remove from Snoopy's doghouse are flashing multi-colored lights. After they "re-do" the little tree, at first the string of lights is not on the tree. In following shots, the string of lights appear, but they are now steady-on yellow lights. (00:23:45)

Deliberate mistake: When all the thumbs are at the wall saying "I'm the king of the globe" and "I'm a dentist" you cannot see their legs, so that saved some costume work.
