Continuity mistake: Lotte barges in the pizza place and carves her name onto Shaggy and Scooby with her sharp nails. LOTT on Shaggy's shirt, and the E in Scooby's fur. They run out the door and then come back to pay for their food. Suddenly the rips in Shaggy's shirt and the scraped off fur on Scooby's chest have vanished.
Continuity mistake: When Velma goes to Hotel Canard, she is walking towards the reception desk and the hotel's logo is part of the floor's tiling. Velma is walking and steps on the logo as she reaches it. The camera cuts to a reverse angle and suddenly she hasn't reached the logo yet, and the logo also becomes smaller.
Continuity mistake: When The Great Pauldini introduces himself to Velma, he is wearing gloves. As he makes an egg appear, thinking it's his business card, he presents it to her, and suddenly in this shot he is not wearing gloves. But in the next shot and the rest of that part, his gloves are back on.
Continuity mistake: After Emma finishes her performance, Brick comes out on stage and gives the conclusion so she can leave. When he comes out, he stops and she is standing still on his right side. Camera cuts to a far shot and suddenly she is on his left side, and then turns to walk off stage.
Continuity mistake: In the car chase at the end, Fred takes the Mystery Machine into some heavy traffic. Shaggy says he can't watch so Scooby puts his paws over Shaggy's eyes. For the next few shots, his paws keep alternating from being over Shaggy's eyes and not between close ups and views from the front of the van.
Continuity mistake: In the sewers, the gang happen upon a part of the wall that has been collapsed, leaving a large pile of rubble in their path with an opening beside it. Fred, Velma, Daphne and Shaggy go all the way across, climbing over the rubble. Scooby stops at the top of it for a moment, and peers into the hole beside him. This scares out a cloud of bats that fly out at the gang. They fall over the railing, but are shown suddenly falling from the pile of rubble, when they had already passed that point except for Scooby.
Continuity mistake: In the sewers under the Opera House, a bunch of rats rush out of a duct at the gang and it startles Shaggy. He backs up into the guard rail and knocks a large chunk of it loose, which falls away, leaving a large gap in the railing. Scooby quickly grabs Shaggy and pulls him away. Then the gap is shown again, and it is suddenly only about half the size it was in the previous shot.
Continuity mistake: When the gang try to set a trap for the Phantom in their dressing room, it doesn't go right and Shaggy runs to the couch scared. There is a conventional clock behind him on the wall, the hands showing 1:10. It cuts to a view from inside the closet and suddenly it shows 1:15, the minute hand jumping from the 2 to the 3.
Continuity mistake: After Chrissy's performance, Dewey is at the podium holding a clipboard and says that Emma Gale is up next. It then cuts to a close up as he asks if anybody has cleaned the microphone. Between shots, his hand goes from being near the top of the clipboard to being at the center.
Continuity mistake: After Chrissy gets finished with her song, Velma, Fred, and Daphne are shown behind stage staring in shock at how inappropriate the song was. It cuts to a close up of the three and suddenly Velma and Daphne are much closer together and in front of Fred, whereas they were beside him a moment before.
Continuity mistake: The whole time Daphne and Velma are on the balcony of their hotel room talking, the wind is blowing their hair and clothes quite strongly. But just before the scene changes and Daphne grabs Velma saying that have to win the competition, the wind has instantly stopped.
