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 Donald is marching around the field at the Training Camp, the background behind him changes between shots.
Continuity mistake: When Elmer puts down his hitch hiking gear, he picks up the cow skull and puts it next to his gear before looking into the hole to find Bugs. After Elmer tells the audience that "There's something awfuwwy scwewy going on awound here," he continues investigating the hole, but when Bugs appears from behind, the hitch hiking gear has disappeared.
Continuity mistake: When Porky is preparing his breakfast, you can see there is a fishing rod by the tree, but after Porky breaks the egg revealing a baby eagle, we cut to the mother eagle standing by the tree and the fishing rod has disappeared.
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.
