Other mistake: When entering the Haunted Forest, the Scarecrow is carrying a pistol and a stick, the Lion has a bug sprayer and net, the Tin Man has a monkey wrench and his axe. But different scenes after that shows some items missing and then returning. I guess in the "Jitterbug" scene that was cut, they lost all those things but the axe. (01:13:15 - 01:16:00)
Other mistake: Toto is listed in the end credits as being played by Toto, when he was actually played by a dog named Terry. A few years after the film was released, Terry's owner/trainer, Carl Spitz, changed the dog's name to Toto due to the popularity of the film, but the credit is wrong for the time.moviefan2345
Other mistake: As they walk through the forest in the shot before Dorothy says, "I don't like this forest" there are some cool digital glitches in the lower left hand corner of the screen which look like a strand of blue Christmas lights blinking on and off. (Restored and re-mastered DVD version only). (00:48:00)????
Other mistake: When the munchkin soldiers first arrive, you can see that some of the munchkins in the front are not beating their chest at the same time. This also happens when the munchkins sing the "fa la la la la" song before the witch arrives. (00:24:25)
Other mistake: The Witch's castle is shown twice, the first time is in the beginning of the scene when Dorothy is held in her room, and the second time is when Toto brings the three back to rescue her. Each time the painting is almost exact, even down to the lights in the windows of the castle. The only thing that changes is the walk way up to the castle, which is entirely different each time. (01:20:10)????
Other mistake: As the Wizard is pulling his curtain closed, he says the famous, "Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain," in a loud, booming voice. But he's turned 180 degrees away from his microphone, which we see a second later needs to be right in front of his mouth to make the booming voice effect. (01:28:40)Krista
