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: When Elmer slams the front door after being tricked by one of the cats, you can see that the door has a handle and lock on it. But when the cat dressed as a salesman leaves Elmer's house later on, look at the door and you can see that it has now changed to a door knob and keyhole.
Continuity mistake: When we first see the blue chest of drawers that Elmer is going to buy at the antique shop, you can see there is nothing on the wall and there is also nothing next to it. But when the two gophers go and see the chest of drawers, a mirror is now on the wall and a green stool is next to the drawers.
Continuity mistake: When Bugs discovers that Mr Hyde fired a hole in the wood that he used to board the door up to stop Mr Hyde from entering the basement, the number of planks change between shots.
Continuity mistake: When the stork lifts up the window before peering into it, you can see he lifts up the window to only halfway but in the next shot it is pulled right up to the top.
Continuity mistake: When Tom is tying the string on the alarm clock whilst assembling his mousetrap, you can there is a bar which the string is attached to and the wall next to it is perfectly fine, but in the next shot there is a piece broken out of it.
Continuity mistake: When Bugs is horrified to realise that he was holding a picket sign, the yellow paint on his tail disappears briefly.
Continuity mistake: When the man is imitating the frog to the agent in the talent agency, he is initially holding his hat, and then throws his hands up into the air. When his hands come back down, the hat has disappeared.
Continuity mistake: When Sam closes the door after escaping the lions, you can see there is nothing under his feet, but in the next shot a doormat has suddenly appeared.
Continuity mistake: When Manuel takes off his sombrero to give to the other mice, you can see he has a straw in his hand, but when we see Manuel in the next shot, the straw is nowhere to be seen.
Continuity mistake: When Hippety Hopper breaks his crate apart on the rocks, you can see there are pieces of crate on the ground, but when we see Hippety in the next shot, the pieces have disappeared.
Continuity mistake: When we first see the book that Bugs is reading at the beginning of the cartoon, there are words on the front cover and spine. In the next shot, the words have gone.
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.
