Best family movie mistakes of 1955

Lady and the Tramp picture

Continuity mistake: Lady is put in her bed and the master leaves the kitchen but he goes back in and puts a newspaper on the floor and leaves again but Lady gets out of her bed so the master comes back once more and puts her back in her bed but the newspaper on the floor has vanished.

The Court Jester picture

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.

This Is a Life? picture

Continuity mistake: When the camera pans in on the audience at the start of the show, you can see that Granny is sitting next to Bugs and Daffy, but after a quick cut to Elmer, we return to Bugs and Daffy, and Granny has disappeared.

Continuity mistake: When Elmer is picking up the money and putting into the case, the dollar note next to Sylvester changes position between shots.

Guided Muscle picture

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: At the beginning of the cartoon, there are four mice behind the wired fence, but when one of them says "Pussycat!" we cut back to the mice and there are now five.

Knight-Mare Hare picture

Continuity mistake: When Merlin turns Bugs into a pig, Bugs pulls off his pig costume and leaves it on the floor. But when Bugs turns Merlin into a horse, the pig costume is nowhere to be seen.

Continuity mistake: When Sylvester appears in an attempt to break to reconnect the extension cord, you can see there is a piece of cord on the floor. But when we see Sylvester being electrocuted, the cord has disappeared.

Continuity mistake: When Butch and the other cats tiptoe past Spike at the start of the cartoon, you can see that Spike's bone is next to his kennel, but when Jerry is thrown out of the house by the cats before the film begins, he lands in Spike's mouth and the bone is now next to Spike.

Continuity mistake: Before Tom is about to draw a line on the alarm clock on the blueprint, you can see on the left hand side of the clock there is an "A" and an arrow, and on the right hand side is some writing. When Tom draws the line, the "A", arrow and writing have all disappeared.

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.

Ready.. Set.. Zoom! picture

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.

Rabbit Rampage picture

Continuity mistake: When Bugs is horrified to realise that he was holding a picket sign, the yellow paint on his tail disappears briefly.
