Revealing mistake: After Bongo the Gorilla Bouncer tosses Eddie into a pile of garbage cans in the back alley, Eddie lifts himself up and here we can see that he's wearing knee pads beneath his pants. (00:21:25)

Revealing mistake: After Roger reads Marvin Acme's will out loud, all of the toons start jumping for joy. Meanwhile the music machine is still activated in the background, and its colorful flashing lights are being reflected on the ground near Betty Boop and Tweety at the front of the crowd. With all of the toons grouped together like they are, the machine's colorful lights should have been obscured, not reflected. (01:35:30)

Revealing mistake: During the Toon Patrol chase, before the cab enters the alleyway there's a wide shot of the cab making a fast turn. Valiant has his head down, with his hat covering his face and his body totally motionless, opposite to what he looks like in the close-ups where he is grabbing the steering wheel, his head up and controlling the car, thus revealing that the actor was replaced by a dummy in some of the shots. (00:58:40)

Revealing mistake: When Eddie sits on the bench and the hippo sits down, you can see Eddie bounce off the bench before the bench even moves. (00:09:10)

Revealing mistake: When Roger takes a shot of bourbon and blows his top, it causes most of the glass objects in R.K. Maroon's office to bust into pieces. In some instances you can see an explosive charge breaking the glass - like the giant angel statue at the center of R.K.'s trophy collection. (00:24:00)

Revealing mistake: Just before a conveyor belt drops the vase upon Eddie's head, an overhead shot shows him pointing at Smart Guy, but actually Eddie points much further left in relation to where Smart Guy is standing. (01:25:10)

Revealing mistake: After shooting their way into Eddie's apartment, the weasels start walking in and cast long shadows on the floor. But the only shadow visible in a reflection on the nearby glass doors is that of Wheezy's Tommy gun. (00:41:10)

Revealing mistake: A string is visible suspending Greasy's gun when Smart Guy orders everybody to search Eddie's apartment for Roger. (00:41:55)

Revealing mistake: The streetcar railway tracks are simply metal strips laid in the road. When Eddie jumps off the back of the streetcar's bumper, you can see that the rails are not in full contact with the road, as there are visible gaps between the rails and the road surface. What's more, the rails do not have the grooves that would be necessary for the cars' wheel flanges. (00:10:10)

Revealing mistake: When Eddie is using the magnet to pull Judge Doom toward him, you can see the wires attached to Doom's shoulders used to move him. (01:27:05)

Revealing mistake: In the Acme warehouse, Roger's shadow disappears a split second before the bricks land on him. (01:21:50)

Revealing mistake: Eddie heads into Toontown with an oversized animated gun. As he lurks into an alley, his gun is a plastic prop. During filming, Hoskins would carry the prop gun and the animated gun would be superimposed over it, but the animation wasn't applied to the gun in the alley. (01:13:50)

Revealing mistake: After getting a mouthful of soap from Eddie, Smart Guy is thrown across the room and loses his gun. When the gun hits the wall you can see it dangling from a puppeteer's string in mid-air. (00:42:15)

Revealing mistake: When Toon Town's red curtain rises for Eddie in the long tunnel, the reflection on the pavement doesn't move correspondingly. (01:10:00)

ryguy_1983

Revealing mistake: When a bar of soap knocks Wheezy into the window blinds, he casts no shadow on the wall, but his Tommy gun does. (00:42:30)

ryguy_1983

Revealing mistake: When Eddie is carrying Roger into Dolores' secret room, keep an eye on the swinging light. At some points, Roger's image is translucent and the light can be seen right through his ears. (00:44:10)

ryguy_1983

Revealing mistake: Tire tracks from a previous take can be seen on the pavement as Benny the Cab skids to avoid a collision with the Red Car. (00:58:30)

ryguy_1983

Revealing mistake: As soon as Eddie walks into the Ink & Paint Club to see Donald and Daffy on stage, a shadow of one penguin's drink tray is cast on the wall near stage left. However, the penguin's shadow isn't animated into this shot. Instead what we can see is a shadow of the pole, which was used by puppeteers to carry the tray around the club before any animation took place. (00:15:00)

ryguy_1983

Revealing mistake: In the shot where Roger looks out of Eddie's apartment window to see the weasels approaching, you can see how their animations overlap the window sill as they cross the street. (00:40:20)

ryguy_1983

Revealing mistake: In some shots with the red cars, such as when Benny, Eddie, and Roger are about to crash into one, look at the wheels. The trucks appear raised with a third, large wheel in the center, obviously a road vehicle outfitted to look like a streetcar.

Continuity mistake: When Jessica appears on stage, Eddie has Betty Boop standing next to him in all close-up shots, except for a wide shot of the public behind Jessica where Boop is missing. (00:18:15 - 00:19:05)

Eddie Valiant: Well you better start drinking it black, Acme's taking the cream now.

Trivia: When the taxi Jessica and Eddie are in hits the lamppost, she spins around and her dress shifts position. For a couple of frames on the laserdisc version her underwear vanishes, or at least it appears to. Opinion is divided as to whether it's a deliberate move by the animators or just an error in colouring. (https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/who-stripped-jessica-rabbit/). (00:18:15)
