Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Continuity mistake: When Danny is admiring April's turtle sketches, he asks if he can keep one of them. His right hand holds onto a sketch of Leo at first, but in the following shot his right hand isn't gripping the sketch at all. Instead, he's seen reaching out to pick it up from the couch. (01:04:35)


Revealing mistake: After Splinter releases the nunchaku from Shredder's spear, he falls from the building's ledge. But notice how Shredder stops abruptly right before the series of shots which show him taking the long fall into a trash compactor, indicating that he actually lands on a mat. (01:23:00)


Continuity mistake: While driving Danny to school, Charles' left hand grips the steering wheel. But in the following shot where Danny opens the door to run away, his left hand is resting near the window sill instead. (00:30:25)


Continuity mistake: When Leonardo engages Shredder on the roof-top, there is a scene where Shredder is seen close front. In that instance he is actually fighting Raphael; on the right you can see his red mask, and the weapons Shredder parries are sai, not swords.

Revealing mistake: During the fight sequence in April's apartment, two foot soldiers dunk Donatello into a fish aquarium. Instead, you can see how it's actually a steel tub full of water into which he's dunked (fullscreen). (00:43:10)


Continuity mistake: As he shouts down to Michelangelo through the sidewalk grate, watch how the pizza man's $10 bill changes from left hand to right in between shots. (00:10:20)


Continuity mistake: Right after Donatello busts through the barn doors with an old Ford truck, its hood closes by itself between shots. (00:53:10)


Character mistake: When Raphael is chasing Casey Jones after their fight he vaults over a taxi hood, never takes his eyes off Casey, but he somehow loses him.

Suggested correction: 2 things are happening; a shell backed stocky Raphael is chasing a lighter human athlete Casey. Casey has freedom of movement, whereas Raphael can't stray much from the shadows in hiding. :-) A knocked out Casey wouldn't be helping the Turtles out of the next evening with that memorable entry so I'm glad Raph lost the chase.

Some can pass

Casey Jones: This is great. First it was The Farm That Time Forgot and now this. Why don't I ever fall in with people who own condos? Probably hard to get good maid service in a sewer. Maybe you guys should try Roto Rooter, huh?
