Factual error: This relates to the first movie with this title, the one with Jack Benny in it. About midway in the film there is a scene with Polish pilots in the RAF in a room. It cuts to a brief shot of airplanes flying which obviously purports to show the Polish pilots flying their airplanes. But, the airplanes shown are circa 1935 U. S. Army Air Corps Consolidated two place fighters, never used by the RAF and in fact totally obsolete and never used by any air force during WWII.
Continuity mistake: When Spencer Tracy takes Katharine Hepburn to the baseball game (about 20 minutes into the film), several plays supposedly from that game are shown. Some of the plays take place on a diamond that has a well manicured dirt path from the pitchers mound to home plate, while others take place on a diamond with an all grass infield and no path.
Visible crew/equipment: In the final musical number "Strictly off the Record", you can clearly see the shadow of the microphone boom during part of the number.
Continuity mistake: When the General gives Donald a piece of paper to sign, the wording on the paper changes between shots.
Continuity mistake: When Bugs hides in the hole from Elmer, he puts the cow skull over the hole. Elmer then takes away the skull and then puts his head in the hole. At this point, you can see that the background is a desert, but when Elmer takes his head out of the hole, it has changed to a cliff. The background goes back to a desert when Bugs appears in the next shot.
Continuity mistake: When Jerry runs onto the record player, he runs next to a button panel and there are four buttons on it: Fast, Stop, Start and Change. But when he is pressing random buttons later on in the cartoon, a "Record" button has been added and the "Change" button has disappeared.
Continuity mistake: When Daffy sees Dr Jerkyl's house, he is holding a telegram in his hand that disappears when we see him in the next shot.
Continuity mistake: When Porky is making his breakfast on the stove, the direction of the frying pan handle changes between shots.
