Continuity mistake: In the scene where Inga, Fredrick and Igor throw the net over the monster, Inga sticks the syringe of the sedative in the monster's back but does not push down on the top, yet the monster still falls over. A few seconds later when she collapses on the monster, you can see all of the fluid inside spray out.
Revealing mistake: One of Peter Boyle's teeth on his lower jaw was painted black for that "broken grin" look. It can be seen reflecting in some scenes: when Frankenstein enters the cell with the monster and it cries, and later when the monster screams while killing the jailer.

Continuity mistake: During the scene where the blind man, Gene Hackman, is serving soup to the monster, the blind man spills 2 large ladles of soup onto the monster's lap. The blind man then burns the monster by lighting his thumb, thinking it's a cigar. The monster screams, and breaks through the front door, leaving the blind man's cottage. When the monster leaves the cottage, there is no sign of the spilled soup on his clothes.

Continuity mistake: During Inspector Kemp's visit at the Frankenstein manor, Frankenstein is playing darts while he is having his conversation with Kemp. He throws the first dart at the bottom 10, but by the time he throws the second dart at 7, the first dart he threw at 10 is now at the bottom of 18.
Revealing mistake: For most of the opera house stage presentation, the monster is a full head taller than Friedrich. During the tap dance, however, they're the same height. Although the camera angle/depth of field used tries to disguise this by keeping Gene Wilder in the foreground for most of the shots, it's still apparent that Peter Boyle isn't wearing his probably-impossible-to-dance-in platform shoes during the sequence.
Continuity mistake: Frankie arrives at the door of the blind man, who welcomes him. Then there's a close-up of the monster from a bit far away where you can see his shirt and head as if he were alone; however, a frame later the blind man is right next to him, his head almost touching the monster's.
