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)
Audio problem: When Elmer pushes the bell on the reception desk at the end of the cartoon, Daffy turns up and says "Yes, sir?" but his beak doesn't move.
Continuity mistake: When Elmer is speaking to Bugs when he is in the crate of carrots in the kitchen, the doors on the freezer behind Elmer change between shots.
Continuity mistake: When Jerry is sleeping in Tom's tackle box, he takes off his dressing gown and leaves it there when Tom takes him out of the box. But when Jerry races back to the tackle box and starts shivering, the dressing gown has gone.
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.
Continuity mistake: When Minnie Mouse is in the telephone box at the start of the cartoon, the coin slot at the top of the box has two holes on it, but when Minnie speaks to Mickey Mouse later on, there are now three.
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 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.
