Continuity mistake: When the Lion says, "Now, to an all musical program" he raises his arms and his shadow is behind him up on the curtain. But without him moving, it cuts to a far shot, and suddenly his shadow is on the ground beside him with one arm of the shadow up on the curtain. (00:02:20)Quantom X
Continuity mistake: In a saloon, Moe and Curly are playing poker with Longhorn Pete, the proprietor. Among Curly's five cards are an ace of hearts and an ace of diamonds. Moe's cards include an ace of spades and an ace of clubs. They pass some of the cards to each other under the table in the hope that one of them will wind up with all four aces. When their cards are shown again, Curly and Moe each have an ace of spades and ace of clubs. The ace of hearts and ace of diamonds have disappeared.
Continuity mistake: In the theatre, a baby goose and his father are watching the show and you can see the baby goose is sitting at the far end of the row. But when the other audience members turn around to try and silence the goose, he now has two empty seats beside him.
Continuity mistake: When Porky arrives home, you can see a window looking outside to the right of the front door, but when Porky shoots the man upstairs a second time, the front door now leads to a hallway with a staircase.
Continuity mistake: When Stan and Ollie arrive at Brushwood Gulch, they show Mickey Finn the deed they've got for Mary Roberts, and it has a couple of holes in it from where Stan has been keeping it in his shoe; Ollie even unfurls it to show the camera it's got holes. But in every other shot after that, whenever the deed is shown, it's got no holes in it whatsoever and is perfectly clean.Heather Benton
Continuity mistake: When Goofy searches through the dresser drawers one of the ghosts causes trouble, then Goofy breaks through the top of the dresser and winds up trapped inside, but when all four ghosts appear the dresser top is perfectly fine and that damage has vanished. Also, two of the drawers (one large and one small) fall out of the dresser, but as the four ghosts are pushing the dresser those two drawers have reappeared in their proper places.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: The entries into Quartermain's journal are supposedly covering events during 1881 and 1882. The entries consist of a day and a date, but no month. Taken in order, they cannot fit into the 1881-1882 calendar. For example, the two entries immediately before the June eclipse can only be in August 1882.Noman
