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.
Continuity mistake: When Fred and Daphne stumble across Mel Richmond, they open a door and startle each other. They talk for a moment, and each time the camera changes angles, Mel is suddenly further out the door without moving, and Fred and Daphne keep moving back without moving.
Continuity mistake: After the Phantom gets away from the Gang the first time, they head outside and Velma tells Shaggy and Scooby to go to the library to do research. Shaggy puts his hand on the back of Scooby's head. It cuts to a different angle for Shaggy to ask why, and suddenly, weirdly, his hand is hovering over and on Scooby's eye.
Continuity mistake: Fred and Daphne chase after the Phantom and find a prop storage room that the light won't turn on in. They walk in and go past a row of axes. Fred walks past them fully with Daphne almost there. Then the angle cuts and they are walking by them again, and get past the axes. The angle changes again to show a hand push the axes and suddenly Fred and Daphne are in front of the axes again and have to run out of the way.
Continuity mistake: After Shaggy and Scooby try to impress Brick with a juggling act, they hear a scream and Scooby jumps into Shaggy's arms. They instantly turn around in the hallway, facing the other direction, as you can tell by the arrangement of the furniture changing sides of the hall and the equipment being in front/behind them.
Continuity mistake: When the gang are driving the Talent Star, Velma is reading a Chicago Travel Guide, and on the spine of the book it says Chicago in big red letters. The distance between he C of Chicago and the edge of the spine keeps changing between shots. It seems most noticeable after Velma brings up the Soap Diamond.
Continuity mistake: While dusting off the stage podium, Dewey sees some men walk by leaving a trail of dirty footprints on the stage. He gripes at them and bends down and begins whipping at one of the foot prints. As he does, another guy goes guy wheeling something along that leaves a dirty trail of wheel prints as well as his own footprints between the two lines. This new set is beside the other set of footprints Dewey is already cleaning. It then cuts to an overhead view, and suddenly the first set of footprints vanishes, and Dewey is suddenly in the same position, but cleaning a footprint in the second trail.
Continuity mistake: As Dewey is standing at the podium on the stage, watching the crew prep the stage for the show, there is a girl standing next to him writing on a clipboard. At first, she is facing towards him and appears to be about level with him if not standing slightly in front. It cuts to a different angle and suddenly she is facing away from him and is about behind him.
Continuity mistake: After the movie starts, the stage inside Talent Star is shown. The crew of the show are hanging the large Talent Star logo above the stage. Between the close up and when the camera cuts to a distance shot of the logo, the circular lights all around the edges of it change in amount. Some sides of the star have more, some sides have less.
Continuity mistake: As the movie starts, the camera zooms in on the Talent Star building, showing the sign for Talent Star displayed at the top. The large stars on the sign are complete, having all their points. But when it cuts to a close up, suddenly the point of the center star at the top is cut off. The stars also seem to be further apart and the stars on the right and left become a little smaller.
