Continuity mistake: When the baby woodpecker frees himself from the telegraph pole, you can see he leaves the string that was used to tie him up by the pole, but when he pecks the post later on, the string has disappeared.

Continuity mistake: When the egg rolls under Jerry while he is sleeping in his bed, you can see that the inside of Jerry's pillow is coloured yellow with green stripes, but in the next shot it is now blue with yellow stripes.
