Continuity mistake: When Snow White falls asleep on three beds, the rabbits sleep on one more and the deer on another, making 5 beds occupied, but when the dwarves come back three more beds of animals wake up making a total of 8 beds. In a previous scene Snow White looks at the 7 beds with names, not 8!
Revealing mistake: The film contains a few animation glitches which usually only last a frame or two. These could have been fixed during the film's digital restoration, but were left in, presumably because the restorers didn't want to alter a single detail of the original animation. A prime example occurs when Snow White is leading the animals to the Dwarfs' cottage. As she approaches the door, a fawn steps in front of her, and its head completely disappears for one frame.
Continuity mistake: When the queen is holding the poisoned apple on a string, the knot on the stem changes between shots.
Continuity mistake: There are six doves sitting on the wishing well in the start, but at least eight different ones are seen flying away when the prince comes.
Doc: The, uh, Princess will sleep in our beds upstairs.
Snow White: But, where will you sleep?
Doc: Oh, we'll be quite comfortable down here, in, uh, in, uh.
Grumpy: In a pig's eye.
Doc: In a pig's eye - sty - NO! No! I mean, we'll be comfortable, won't we, men?
Trivia: When making this movie, Walt Disney turned the script into a comic at first and they used these "comic strips" to move around shots and scenes, replace things and generally see what would work or not. This technique is now known as storyboarding and pretty much every single movie production uses it.
