Continuity mistake: When Helmet is trying to hit Lone Starr with his Schwartz but Lone Starr is holding his head, you can easily tell that Helmet's Schwartz is made shorter so it won't hit Lone Starr.

Continuity mistake: The head of Mega-Maid mysteriously shrinks in size. After Spaceball-1 transforms into Mega-Maid, the head is gigantic enough for a Winnebago to fly through for a considerable length of time. However, later on in the film, after the head has been jettisoned and crashed on a beach, the head is only big enough to hold a few dozen people. This can be determined by the size of the people coming out of her nose.
