Continuity mistake: The tiger bites the seat off the suitor's trousers, allowing the viewer to see his polka-heart boxers. When we see the tiger in the courtyard, he has a part of the same boxer shorts in his mouth. So if he bit off the seat of the trousers, shouldn't he have purple cloth in his mouth? (00:11:45)
Continuity mistake: As Jack Kelly rides the horse near the end of the "Santa Fe" sequence, his hat is waving behind him. When it cuts to a different angle the hat is on his head. Note: This was a specific detail put in by the director, symbolizing the boy's mental transition from New York to Santa Fe. However, it failed and is commonly seen as an editing mistake.
Revealing mistake: During the ghost of Christmas present, Kermit is walking with tiny Tim on his shoulder and you can tell Kermit is walking on a spinning drum. Right before the camera pans away you can see Kermit's feet slide like he stopped walking but the road kept spinning. (00:55:00)
Continuity mistake: Detective Keith Lui, after some fencing with the sugar cane, finds the only way out from the apartment is to throw himself out of the window. When he is leaping down, he is upright and looking straight ahead. When he lands in front of the group of deadbeats, he is horizontal and parallel to the road. (00:09:20)
