Corrected entry: Babe should never have got full marks at the sheepdog competition because he took far too long.

Correction: It's not clear that he took that long - there are lots of cuts for things going on at the same time. If you look at just the ones that involve Babe, Fly gives him the password as soon as he walks out with Hoggett, and Babe gives it to the sheep immediately after that. The judge remarks that Hoggett is standing stationary, but that doesn't mean he stood for a long time: the judge would probably have expected him to move off immediately given that it was a timed contest.

Correction: Babe doesn't necessarily need to win by virtue of time, he just has to perform exceptionally well when he gets going, which he does, to prove the feasibility of the idea. Also, the other half of his performance is nearly flawless and therefore he Might win by that anyway.

Corrected entry: After Farmer Hoggett's dance to cheer Babe up, he turns back to see Babe gone from the couch. But when you see the couch, the pillows arranged are different than when Hoggett was sitting on it.

Correction: Farmer Hoggett rearranges the pillows when he gets up, so Babe is comfortable and can get to the bottle.

Corrected entry: In the scene where the sheep's wool is being sheared, Farmer Hoggett shears all of the sheep. In the next scene with Ma out in the field, none of the sheep have been sheared.

Correction: They were a different flock of sheep.

Continuity mistake: There is one section where the camera shows the animals looking into the house through a window, but when it shows it from the outside they are looking in through a door. It's around the part where Babe is in the competition.

Trivia: In the scene where Babe and the duck try to steal the alarm clock and accidentally wake up the cat, the camera switches to a view outside the home. You can see two ducks doing what appears to be mating in the pond outside the house.

Question: Why is The Hoggett's granddaughter a spoiled brat and grandson very quiet?

Answer: Personality traits of brothers and sisters are not necessarily the same, even if the parents provide a stable environment for their children to grow up. The grandson could just easily been the spoiled brat of the family. In the context of the movie, one of the grandkids had to be the spoiled brat to carry the story along and show the love of the grand parents for them, even if one of them did not appreciate the hand made doll house he built for her.
