Continuity mistake: When the kids in the Guppy zoom towards the boat, in the first shot facing the man in the boat, the large distinct building is clearly visible on shore in the background.

Then in the next shot, at the same angle as the first, the shoreline is completely different. (00:23:30)

Revealing mistake: Throughout the shots of the corridors in Floop's castle, the many works of art, light fixtures, etc., are repetitive, despite the fact that they are supposed to be different corridors. Although one can say there are identical works of art and so forth, in the multitude of corridors, however even the painted uneven surface of the walls surrounding the art, etc., are perfectly identical.
