Corrected entry: In the scene when Truley Scrumptious is walking on the beach with the children, one shot she has shoes on & in the very next shot, she is barefoot.

Correction: In the scene where Truley is walking with the children, she has her shoes on the entire time until she kicks them off when the children chase her.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Mr. Potts is going to take the children for the first ride in the car, he tells Jeremy to get the picnic basket. Jeremy hurriedly rushes out of the shot and then back to the car with it within a few seconds, but he would not have had a chance to fill it with food.

Correction: How do you know the picnic basket wasn't already packed? After all, it was in his workshop where Jeremy couldn't pack food anyway since there is none.

Corrected entry: At the end of the movie, when they fly off into the sunset, they forget to put the wings out.

Correction: I believe that this was done on purpose symbolizing that the car is magical.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Truly finds the children in the tower, the cannon that Mr Potts and the toymaker use to smash down the door was a chest in the shot immediately before they appeared.

Correction: The chest was at the end of a corridor to the side of the door. The cannon was at the end of a corridor opposite the door which was smashed down. The cannon was always there.

Corrected entry: The name of the book and the film come from the time when it was written-British soldiers in France were given permission to go and see the Parisian prostitutes by means of a piece of paper or a "chitty" from their superiors- i.e. Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

Correction: Unless I see a credible source for this, I'm inclined to dismiss this one as an urban legend. For one thing, a title relating to events from the time the movie was WRITTEN would make little sense for a story set in a completely different time period (post-WWII vs. circa 1910). A Google and Wikipedia search provided nothing to support this allegation.

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Chitty is taking off from the castle, Caracticus looks down at the toymaker and Peter and says, "Bye bye". If you look closely, right in front of them, a boy runs across holding a stick he stole from one of the cavalrymen. He is waving it around and you can tell it's fake because it flops around like rubber. (02:16:50)
