Continuity mistake: When Dr. Sawyer is giving Kris the exam, during the part where Kris is doing the physical coordination test, we see Kris from Sawyer's point of view, and Sawyer is drumming his fingers. When the shot switches to Kris's, he is fingering his eyebrow. When it switches back, fingers drumming. Finally, when it switches back again, his hands are neatly folded in front of him.
Other mistake: In the 1946 MGM film "Good News" - there is a minor flub in the last musical dance number -The Varsity Drag. About 131.13 into the film- a woman dancer wearing a pink dress - just to the left of the screen- stumbles forward and almost falls onto her face while dancing. They left this scene in for some reason. (01:31:10)
Continuity mistake: When Elmer runs back from the boiler room to the businessman's room, you can see that he has a bandage on his head, but when he runs from elevator to the room, the bandage disappears. It re-appears when Elmer is in the businessman's room.
Continuity mistake: When we see a man and woman sitting by a lake, the plate of pancakes on the picnic blanket moves from the left to the right between shots.
Continuity mistake: When Pluto is sneaking up behind Mickey Mouse's top hat, he is initially on a pink rug but when we see Pluto in the next shot, the rug is nowhere to be seen.
Continuity mistake: When the cat places the tiny canary on to the plate, the salt and pepper pots on the table change positions between shots, and the cabinets in the background disappear. He also has a knife and fork in his hands, but after the canary says he's been sick, we return to the cat and the knife and fork have disappeared.
Other mistake: After the fade out, the "The End" board shows it as an "MGM Tom and Jerry Cartoon." The two stars were not in this short at all.
Continuity mistake: When Tom is tip-toeing past the gate at the start of the cartoon, Spike is sleeping and you can see there is nothing around his neck, but in the next shot a dog collar has suddenly appeared.
Continuity mistake: When Jerry replaces two keys on the piano with a mousetrap, Tom gets his finger caught and there is a catch lever at the bottom of the trap. But in the next shot when Tom pulls up the mousetrap and his finger expands, the catch lever has disappeared.
