Visible crew/equipment: After Dark Helmet drops Lone Starr's ring into the vent and Lone Starr tries to retrieve it there is a quick shot of Lone Starr getting up and backing up against the wall. If you look closely you can tell that it is a stunt double.

Visible crew/equipment: When our heroes enter the temple of Yogurt, there is a shot where Vespa says "Whats gonna happen now?" Behind them you can see the track the camera moves on. After the giant statue says "Silence", the track is gone. (00:45:10)

Visible crew/equipment: In the desert, Helmet asks the guys "combing" the desert if they've found anything. The camera crew is reflected in the helmet of the guy that says "we ain't found shit."

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.
