Continuity mistake: After the raid on the Japanese radar site as Errol Flynn is on the radio sitting next to a radioman talking to the supply plane his hair is sweaty and forming circles on his forehead. When the scene shifts to a close-up of Errol his hair is in straight lines.Then when the scene goes back to the two of them his hair is in circles again.
Revealing mistake: In the process shot (dummy auto front seat, scenery visible in back window) where father and daughter are driving off to see the circus, Eddie G. makes a left turn and the scenery follows; but he forgets to return the steering wheel to center, even though the scenery shows the car has straightened out on the new course. Funny - even titans nod. That car should still be circling somewhere.
Continuity mistake: Laurel and Hardy climb a pile of hay to get away from an angry bull. They fall into a wagon which begins to careen out of control and race downhill. The close-ups use rear-screen projection that shows a tree-filled forest. In the long shots, however, the wagon is speeding through a cactus-covered desert. (00:45:45)
Continuity mistake: When Daffy sees the man from the draft board, he puts various items in front of the door to prevent him from entering. But when he goes to the door with his packed suitcases, the items have all gone.
Continuity mistake: When Bugs arrives in Germany, he opens up his map and you can see that the map is folded in the centre, yet when viewed from behind, it is not.
Continuity mistake: When Elmer Fudd comes into a room and finds that it is painted with spots, you can see that he is standing by the table but in the next shot he is standing by the door.
Continuity mistake: Ken's mother makes his jockey shirt using dark blue and gold as their racing colors. When Ken rides Thunderhead in his first race, Ken's jockey shirt is now light green and beige and the design is different. Ken's family owns Thunderhead, and race horse owners must have specific registered racing colors and patterns. Ken would not suddenly be wearing a differently-colored shirt.raywest
Revealing mistake: In the cave scene, when Dr. Edelman and Talbot come upon Frankenstein's monster in the mud, there is a skeleton lying beside the monster, which Dr. Edelman identifies as probably Dr. Niemann. The prop is an obvious lab skeleton, as you can very clearly see the circumferential line around the skull cap. Also, if you look closely in several shots, you can make out the hook at the top of the skull where it would hang from a lab stand. (00:24:35)
Continuity mistake: When Bugs pours red ink on Sam's head, he leaves the bottle on its side and there is a label saying "Ink" on it. In the next shot, the word "Ink" has disappeared.
Continuity mistake: When the hunter is holding the piece of paper that was in the satchel at the end of the cartoon, you can see that his left hand is on the side of the paper, but in the next shot it is now on the corner.
Continuity mistake: When Donald sees the "reward" poster with a picture of him on the telegraph pole, you can see that the last two zeros of the reward have two lines under them, but when Donald starts tearing off the posters, there is now only one line.
