9 continuity mistakes

Directed by: Dave Fleischer, Shamus Culhane

Starring: Jack Mercer

Genres: Animated, Short

Continuity mistake: After the Italian peddler buys Spunky, the camera cuts to and zooms in on the Italian's place. To the right of the house, there is an old car with flat tires and some junk behind it. When it cuts to a view from inside the front of the house, the same spot is visible outside the door, and the junk behind the car has changed.

Continuity mistake: Trying to figure out how to move with the new heavy weighted horse shoes on, Spunky trips up all over himself and winds up spinning on his belly at the barn entrance. When he stops, he is facing the camera and his body is diagonally facing into the building. Then the camera cuts back as the peddler returns and suddenly Spunky is diagonally facing out of the building.

Continuity mistake: The peddler has Spunky pulling his cart and they reach some train tracks. As Spunky is crossing the first rail, there is a hole under the rail that he is walking past that is to his right. But then it cuts to a close up and suddenly he is walking directly over the hole.

Continuity mistake: The Italian peddler puts some weighted horse shoes on Spunky to inhibit his movement. As the Peddler is leaving and says he will be right back, Spunky is facing him into the building. But then it cuts back from the Peddler to Spunky and suddenly he is facing out the building the opposite direction. It's only after this when he tries to move that he discovers his feet too heavy to lift, yet somehow he got turned around in an instant.

Continuity mistake: Spunky is set on a stage at the auction once he is delivered there and he tries to run off to the left, but is grabbed by a hand and set back down. He looks around scared for a moment, and then it cuts to a closer angle and suddenly he is looking further to the left, has a tear in his eye, is standing up straight rather than sitting, a guy's face appears in front of him, and a hand is coming from behind him.

Continuity mistake: Searching for Spunky, Hunky skids to a stop when he sees a sign and looks up at it. Then it cuts to a close up of the sign reading QUIET Hospital Zone. Between shots, the sign becomes redder, and it appears the word Hospital becomes shorter, and other aspects of the sign change.

Continuity mistake: Hunky takes off chasing the truck that took Spunky and tries to save him, but then trips and slides on his face and belly on the ground, coming to a stop. There is a large rock beside him. When the camera changes angles, the rocks design changes significantly.

Continuity mistake: After the opening shot of Spunky and Hunky walking, they are shown grazing on some grass. Spunky sucks up a flower and then turns his attention to a dandelion. When he does, it cuts to a close up, and suddenly the dandelion has gotten much bigger, and the surroundings of Spunky change up quite a bit.

Continuity mistake: Once Spunky is kidnapped and Hunky takes off chasing the truck, you see the truck going along the road passing just some grass and one large rock on its left side. Once Hunky catches up to the truck, it cuts to a side view close up of him and Spunky's head sticking out the back, and suddenly the truck is passing a very large rock that was not there in the previous shot. The rock is taller than the truck, so it would have shown. And then it's very obvious the background is then looped as the same huge rock passes the truck every few seconds repeatedly.
