Toy Story mistake picture

Other mistake: During the scenes in Andy's room, when characters are standing near the window beside Andy's bed, and also on both the interior and exterior sides of the window behind the desk, we can see the same markings/scratches/chipped paint on their white lower sash rails, though the marks on the exterior side of the window behind the desk, are actually opposite from the other marks.

Continuity mistake: When Andy has Woody slide down the banister there's a green/white striped rug directly in front of the door, but when the area of the floor in front of the door can be seen from the living room such as when Andy shouts, "Score," the rug is gone, then it reappears when Andy rushes back upstairs to get Molly.

Continuity mistake: During the earlier scenes in Andy's room Molly's bottle is beside the lamp on the small wicker dresser near the crib, and it disappears and reappears, such as when Buzz wants to prove he can fly he stands on the bed's footboard and the bottle is gone, but it reappears when he lands on the race track. (00:19:00)

Continuity mistake: When Sid runs out of his room with Buzz, the chair's in front of the dresser smack between the bed and wall, but when Babyface knocks out the morse code on the bed frame the chair should be seen but has vanished, and then it reappears where it should be, right beside the bed.

Continuity mistake: After Buzz knocks over the tool box onto Woody, in the overhead shot from behind Buzz as he looks down at the floor and also the closeup of the toolbox, the dumbbell's between the chair and bed, but when Sid grabs Buzz and runs off the dumbbell's moved to the other side of the chair, beside the wall and dresser.

Continuity mistake: When Sid opens the box from the fireworks company and takes out the rocket, he pushes the large corrugated box towards the window, but when Sid puts the milk crate with Woody onto the table that large box has vanished.

Continuity mistake: When Andy's toys see Woody holding Buzz's severed arm they abandon him, and Slink drops the window blinds while Woody's leaning out Sid's window that's still open, but when Woody turns around to see Sid's mutant toys start working on Buzz, Woody jumps off the table and suddenly that window is closed behind him.

Continuity mistake: When Molly is playing with Mr. Potato Head, she knocks all of the pieces off his head, except one arm. The next time Mr. Potato Head is seen, he has lips, one eye, one eyebrow and both hands. (00:03:19)

Continuity mistake: Toward the end of the movie when Woody opens the moving van door and is hanging on it you can see in the background Scud trying to get Buzz from underneath the car, but right after Woody spots the box he needs to look in we are shown a scene of Scud struggling with Buzz who is at this point thrown under the car. (01:08:55)

Continuity mistake: When the toy soldiers get stepped on, the mom sweeps them with her foot to the right of the door. So when they are active again and go the left, they should go by the door right away. Instead they are to the right of the potted plant. (00:10:50)

Toy Story mistake picture

Factual error: In the scene when Buzz and Woody are at the gas station, Buzz looks up at the moon and talks about Zurg. The reflection of the moon on his helmet looks the same as the moon in the sky, rather than its mirror image.

Continuity mistake: When RC bumps into the corkboard, the pins fall off and stick into the desk. When the globe starts rolling towards Buzz, the pins are gone. (00:27:00)

Continuity mistake: When Woody and Buzz run for the Pizza Planet doors under cover of Pizza Planet cups and burger dishes, Buzz says, "Hurry Sheriff, the airlock is closing!" Just after he says that, the camera changes view to inside Pizza Planet, and the distance that they've run changes instantly. (00:33:22)

Deliberate mistake: Sid burns a hole into Woody's forehead in the middle of the film, but by the final scene (as the toys are waiting to hear what Andy has gotten for Christmas), the burn hole is completely gone. [Disney takes the attitude that violence is okay in their movies as long as the signs of it disappear by the end. Still a mistake but that's the reason.] (00:43:35)

Continuity mistake: When Buzz and Woody are in Sid's room, the clock stays still at 3:10. But about two scenes later that shows the clock, it changes. (01:01:20)

Other mistake: After throwing Woody to the floor, Sid raises the window shade and tries to burn a hole in Woody's head by using a magnifying glass to focus the sunlight. Sid is leaning over Woody with his back toward the window and yet he does not cast a shadow on Woody. In addition, the position of Sid's body would block the sun's rays from hitting the magnifying glass but the close-up shows the narrow beam of light hitting Woody's head.

Continuity mistake: At 09:21 on BluRay disc, is the scene where Woody is instructing the army man to go downstairs. You can see in his left hand there is a set of binoculars and in his right hand is a pistol. In the very next shot (at 09:26) you can see the binoculars in his left hand, but the pistol has disappeared from his right hand, enabling him to salute Woody. A few shots later (09:33) we get a good look at the army man. The pistol is still missing. We also get a look at the holster, which is empty. There was no time for the army man to put the pistol in the holster between shots, and it would technically be moulded to his hand anyway. (00:09:20)

Continuity mistake: When Buzz wants to prove that he can fly, he jumps off Andy's bed and ends up on the loop car track, and the three stacked wood blocks (letters A, C, E) suddenly appear in front of the wicker hamper between shots.

Continuity mistake: When Buzz watches the TV commercial and realizes that he's really a toy, by the time "Al's Toy Barn" is mentioned and he reads "made in Taiwan" on his arm, one of the soda cans on the floor changes its position and the trash bin with the crumpled paper around it vanishes.

Buzz: I just want you to know that although you tried to terminate me, revenge is not an idea we promote on my planet.
Woody: Oh, well, that's good.
Buzz: But we're not on my planet, are we?
Woody: No.

Trivia: The carpet design used in Sid's house is the same design used in the hotel featured in The Shining (1980). (00:48:55 - 00:50:10)

Suggested correction: The designs are not the same, only superficially similar.

The design is spot on. The color is just different.


So it is identical, except for how it is different?

No one said it was identical. The trivia is the pattern is the same. Color has no bearing on the trivial fact. The fact that they animated the carpet means the design was intentional. Although, it's possible they copied the design from a 70's carpet pattern that "The Shining" also used, rather than copy the design in "The Shining."


The colours are reversed but other than that they are the same.

Question: When Woody and Buzz are at Sid's house, at one point the baby with the spider legs taps something in Morse code to Sid's other toys. Is he really tapping something in Morse code or is it just a random jumble of dots and dashes?

Answer: Baby face taps RR TOYS COME OUT. Telling the other toys to come out from hiding. Pixar stated this in their Toy Story character overview.

But why "RR"?
