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?

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.

Matty Blast
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.

Greg B
Thumbtanic picture

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.

In the next shot black bishop remains on A3 and white pawn on B2, as nothing was happened.

Audio problem: During the dream sequence in the song, Lulu begins swinging from three different stars depicting 3 different faces of celebrities at the time in black and white that have their lips moving with the song as they sing. However their lips are off sync with the lyrics by a little bit and are moving slower.

Quantom X

Audio problem: When the lion walks on stage, the audience becomes completely quiet and all that can be heard is the sound of the lion's voice. Behind him is only a curtain that hides the orchestra from view. Once he finishes speaking, he turns around and the curtain opens, and suddenly you can hear the orchestra doing sound checks on their instruments and it is loud, the lion tapping his podium to quieten them so they know the concert is about to start. This means merely a curtain was keeping their sound check from being heard at all until it was open?

Superman picture

Revealing mistake: As Lois says she wants a chance to crack the case on her own, Clark turns his head to look at her. As she does, the shadow effects on his collar flash suddenly several times, his collar going in and out of the light rapidly on the right side.

Mater and the Ghostlight picture

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.

Quantom X

Continuity mistake: Once Spunky is kidnapped and Hunky takes off chasing the truck, you see the truck going along the road passing just some grass and one large rock on its left side. Once Hunky catches up to the truck, it cuts to a side view close up of him and Spunky's head sticking out the back, and suddenly the truck is passing a very large rock that was not there in the previous shot. The rock is taller than the truck, so it would have shown. And then it's very obvious the background is then looped as the same huge rock passes the truck every few seconds repeatedly.
