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: When the man from the draft board says "Well now, I wouldn't say that!" to Daffy in the closet, Daffy has one hand on the handle. In the next shot, he can be seen holding the handle with both hands, and in the shot after that, he is holding it with one hand again.
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.
Continuity mistake: Throughout the cartoon, watch the handkerchief in the store manager's top pocket of his jacket. In some shots it is in the pocket; others it isn't.
Continuity mistake: When Screwy squashes the truant officer's nose with a mallet, the nose jumps off in pain and then hides under the officer's face. At this point, the truant officer is wearing a hat on his head, but in the next shot the hat has disappeared.
Character mistake: When we see what is happening inside the saloon, there is a sign which reads "Noisy - Is'nt It?" It should read "Isn't."
