Audio problem: As the three look down at the entrance to the Wicked Witch's castle the guards in the back are playing drums that are not in synch with what we're hearing on the soundtrack.

Continuity mistake: After they meet the Cowardly Lion, the Wicked Witch watches them in her crystal ball. They pass the same rock again that was next to them when they started to sing, "We're off to see the Wizard" and dance down the yellow brick road.

Continuity mistake: When Dorothy says, "No, I just thought you hurt yourself" she takes her hand off the Scarecrow's shoulder. In the next shot her hand is back on his shoulder.

Continuity mistake: When the Scarecrow falls to the floor after his "If only I had a Brain" song, Dorothy goes to his aid and grabs his arm tight. But in the next shot, her hands are by her side, and she quickly grabs the Scarecrow's hand again, shaking it.

Hamster

Revealing mistake: As Dorothy is about to walk into the cyclarama (backdrop) as she leaves MunchkinLand, a Munchkin Soldier on the very far right is too far and becomes transparent with the matted-in flowers.

Visible crew/equipment: As Dorothy walks out of her house in Munchkinland the camera pans right then comes back again and the light from a spotlight dead center that has been bumped can be seen shaking above the blue brook.

Continuity mistake: Just before the group starts skipping towards the Emerald city, there is snow everywhere, but in the next shot, it's completely disappeared.

Continuity mistake: In Munchkinland, when Dorothy walks the road and everyone sings "Follow the yellow brick, follow the yellow brick road," the angle cuts and a group of Munchkins have suddenly appeared in the center of the previously empty road. Dorothy was standing on the farthest point, so they had half a second to walk 10 meters, which is impossible.

Continuity mistake: As the Wicked Witch watches them in her crystal ball Dorothy is holding a hanky in her hand and the oil can is held by the Scarecrow. In the previous shot the oil can is in her hand.

Continuity mistake: After the Scarecrow gets his diploma he says, "How can I ever thank you enough" and the diploma is near his face. In the next shot it's at his side.

Continuity mistake: When Dorothy grabs the oil can next to the tin man, the leaves he holds in his left hand change positions between shots. A leaf on the log also appears/ disappears randomly between shots.
