Bug Bites: An Ant's Life

Revealing mistake: Just after agreeing to help Josephine with her ant farm, Didi mentions using Queen Michelle's old nest. It cuts to Josephine, where she says "Hmm", then cuts back to Didi where she says it was abandoned last Friday. It then cuts back to Josephine saying "Hmm" again. The two shots of Josephine are the exact same shot, though the second is reversed. This is noticeable as Josephine's movements and the movements of the plants appear the same, but reversed when shown the second time. (00:04:30)

Revealing mistake: At the end of the scene where Josephine is thanking Thang, Rose and Didi for helping her, Josephine says it's all going according to plan and then it transitions to the next scene. Just after she finishes the line, the animation stops before it transitions. This is noticeable as Josephine freezes on the spot. (00:13:40)

Revealing mistake: When the geckos are chasing butterfly Sal, there is a shot of Sal flying, followed by the blue gecko running towards him, followed by the green gecko running behind the blue gecko. Around two and half minutes later, the exact same shot has been repeated. (00:17:35 - 00:20:05)

Casual Person

Revealing mistake: When the geckos are eating Josephine's children, there is a shot where three ants are shown walking one behind the other directly into the path of the blue gecko and being eaten. A couple seconds later, just before Josephine says "Turn around", the same shot of the three ants walking one behind the other into the blue gecko's path is repeated. However, this time the shot cuts after the first ant is eaten, but is repeated again two shots later where the two other ants are eaten. (00:22:30)

Casual Person

Revealing mistake: When Sal is eating on the leaf, the caterpillar next to him can be seen eating, but there is nothing in its mouth. He just appears to be mining the actions of eating. (00:00:10)

Revealing mistake: When Sal is eating the leaf, nothing is ever shown breaking off it or going into his mouth. It just appears to remain intact whilst eating it. (00:08:10)

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: When Thang and Rose approach Sal after searching the tunnels, the wide shot shows a large purple mushroom behind him to his left. Later on in the scene, after Gigi leaves, Thang tells him he's gotta be more careful, and it has disappeared. (00:08:25 - 00:09:25)
