Other mistake: The catapult on the battlements Jean uses to evict the castle guards is rather curious. First, there is neither a bow nor any torsion to 'power' the weapon, and secondly it just seems to cock itself, right after each shot. All that Jean does is pull the lever and none of her diminutive helpers stand by for any cocking work whenever the catapult arm is shown.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where the Reluctant is in the port of Elysium and the men are on shore leave, a truck load of MPs show up. Ttheir patrol leader tells Mr. Roberts that his men will be stationed along the starboard side of Mr. Roberts ship for the remainder of its stay in port because of the problems various members of the ship had been causing while on shore leave. No sooner do the MPs line up along the side of the ship do you see one of the ships crew flying down the dock on a motorcycle. When the motorcycle passes the ship the MPs who just 10 seconds before were lined up along the ships starboard side are now nowhere to be seen.
Continuity mistake: When the man is sitting on the park bench and the frog is singing, the outside of the newspaper is completely blank, but in a close-up of the frog croaking, writing appears.
Continuity mistake: When we see the four mice at the start of the cartoon, you can see there is nothing behind them, but when the camera pans in on them in the next shot, a cactus and a huge rock appear from nowhere.
Other mistake: Philip De Guard is the cartoon's layout artist, yet when we see his name in the opening credits, it is spelled "Phillip" instead of the usual "Philip."
Continuity mistake: When Uncle Pecos breaks his guitar string whilst rehearsing in Jerry's home, he goes up to Tom and pulls off one of his whiskers. The whisker Pecos pulls off is the one on the top left of Tom's face, but when Tom goes to check his face in the mirror a few shots later, the whisker Pecos pulled off is still intact, and the whisker in the bottom right has been pulled.
Continuity mistake: When the Coyote attempts to capture the Road Runner for the first time, he is standing on a bare patch of pavement surrounded by the puddle of glue he is spreading. In the next shot, the Coyote is now standing on glue with no bare patch, and when he realises he is about to be hit by the truck, he is standing on bare pavement in middle of the glue puddle once again.
Continuity mistake: When Calvin Q. Calculus has invented the portable hole, he says "Eureka!" and you can that there is a beaker on the desk, but in the next shot the beaker has disappeared.
