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 Daffy says "It couldn't be you!" he points to himself in a mirror. But when he is crawling around on the floor, he crawls to a window, which wasn't there in the previous shot.
Continuity mistake: At the end of the cartoon, you can see that the bandage on the repaired piggy bank is on the left hand side, but when one of Donald's nephews takes the piggy bank from him, the bandage is now on the other side.
Continuity mistake: Elmer Fudd is standing by the door when he reads the sign on it, but when we see Bugs Bunny in the next shot, Elmer is nowhere to be seen. The style of the words "No One" also changes between shots, as does the doorhandle.
Continuity mistake: When the camera pans in on the two saloon doors at the start of the cartoon, you can see there is a spittoon by the doors marked "Beer." But when the wolf arrives in his car later on, the spittoon is nowhere to be seen.
Continuity mistake: When the taxidermist says "Yachts!" when thinking about what to do with his $100,000 reward, his whiskers disappear for a moment.
Character mistake: Laurel & Hardy's testimony sent Muldoon to prison. He was freed when the real criminal confessed. Muldoon vowed revenge. Five years later at a bullfight, Laurel is posing as a Spanish bullfighter, Don Sebastian. Muldoon recognizes him and points to him and mistakenly shouts, "That's Hardy - -and the other one is Laurel."
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)
