Visible crew/equipment: The Wicked Witch looks at them in the Haunted Forest through her crystal ball and the wires holding Nikko's wings can be seen as they flop around.

Continuity mistake: In the Wicked Witch's room, she puts Toto in Dorothy's basket which now has a lid on both sides of it. Later when the boys come to rescue her, Dorothy walks over toward the hourglass, and picks up the same basket and it now has no lids on it (like earlier in the movie).

Continuity mistake: As the Wicked Witch throws her hour glass at them we see behind her as she stands on the balcony, and her broomstick is definitely not anywhere near her. As she runs down the stairs, it's in her hand.

Continuity mistake: After the Wicked Witch turns the hourglass over and leaves, Dorothy is crying and has wet spots on her dress from the tears. In the next shot her dress is dry.

Continuity mistake: Dorothy says to herself, "Someplace where there isn't any trouble". If you look closely her hair is blowing in the pre-tornado Kansas wind. In the next shot it isn't.

Continuity mistake: As the Wicked Witch puts her flaming broomstick on the Scarecrow, look closely at the Tin Man. His chest dent that we saw several shots earlier on the left side of his costume, has been dented out.

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Dorothy taps her ruby slippers together, there is a bow on the toe. When she is walking to Emerald City, her shoes have no bow.

Revealing mistake: When they first meet the Cowardly Lion, he jumps off of a boulder and obviously lands on a trampoline and jumps off.

Continuity mistake: When Toto pulls the curtain back to show who the real "Oz" truly is it looks like Toto's collar got snagged or he actually had to bite it but in the next shot he pulls the curtain back so fast that it would've sent Toto flying but then he is connected back to it again.

Revealing mistake: In the scene where the tornado is about to hit and Aunt Em and Uncle Henry are going into the cellar, you can see that some of the trees are blowing around violently, and others aren't moving at all.

Continuity mistake: Inside the Emerald City, when they are at the palace entrance, the guard's mustache is turned up in the first shot, and is turned down in his next shot.
