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. (00:01:35)

Mr. Mouse Takes a Trip picture

New this month Continuity mistake: After Mickey hides Pluto in his suitcase in Burbank, Mickey picks up his cane and runs to the train, then when Mickey actually jumps onto the train caboose he's only carrying his suitcase, he does not have his cane, nor does he have Pluto's suitcase (which had been filled with bones) with him. The cane reappears on the train later, and at the end Pluto's suitcase mysteriously reappears when Pete throws it at the duo in Pomona.
