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?
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
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.

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: The snowman hits his nose with a hammer, completely bending it in half. In the next shot it is suddenly magically straight again.
Continuity mistake: Hunky takes off chasing the truck that took Spunky and tries to save him, but then trips and slides on his face and belly on the ground, coming to a stop. There is a large rock beside him. When the camera changes angles, the rocks design changes significantly. (00:01:40)Quantom X
Continuity mistake: In the dream, the school house asks Lulu if she'd rather be a pig and pulls up a blackboard with the word PIG written on it. There is a stick of chalk at the bottom of the board to the right. When it cuts to a close up of the blackboard, the chalk suddenly moves closer to the center of the board and is almost under the word PIG. (00:04:40)Quantom X
