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.

Way Out West picture

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.

Lonesome Ghosts picture

New this month 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.
