Sleeping Beauty picture

Factual error: The evil fairy states that Princess Aurora will prick her finger on a spindle - the part of a spinning wheel that holds the bobbin. Spindles aren't sharp; what Aurora actually pricks her finger on is the distaff, which is used to hold the fiber before it is spun.

Continuity mistake: When Wilby goes into his bedroom, he takes out his PJ's from the bureau drawer, leaving the drawer open. He goes into the bathroom to put on the PJ's. When he comes out of the bathroom, the drawer in the bureau is closed.

The Giant Behemoth picture

Other mistake: When the Behemoth swims up the river & capsizes the ferry, a static model is used that bears no resemblance to the animation model seen throughout the film.
