Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When the seven dwarves run scared down the stairs and out of the door, Dopey pulls the handle of the door from the inside until it breaks out and falls away. The next scene when the dwarf opens the door, the handle is there again. (00:33:00)

Other mistake: When the Dwarfs first leave the mine entrance, the first few animation cells seem to have been omitted, so that at first the entrance is empty and then the Dwarfs appear out of thin air.

Continuity mistake: The stick that the hag uses to try to push the rock over the cliff to the dwarfs appears out of nowhere between shots.

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!

Audio problem: When Grumpy hits his head on the bridge we hear the sound of metal, but the bridge is made of wood. (01:08:00)

Continuity mistake: In the dance scene, Dopey stands on top of Sneezy and dances with Snow White. But while he is dancing, there are some shots of him back on the ground, banging on the cymbals and drums again. (00:55:40)

Continuity mistake: When Snow White cuts of the dough around the pie container, the container has lines all around it. In the next shot, when the birds are putting their footprints on the pie, the lines are all gone.

Continuity mistake: When Snow White first enters the cottage you can see the organ in the background with the pipes higher on the right. But when Grumpy is playing it during the Silly Song the pipes are longer on the left side. (00:16:10 - 00:52:10)

Continuity mistake: When the dwarves see Snow White for the fist time, a green pot and a towel can be seen over the beds. But later in the film, when Snow White says her prayers after the dance, the pot and towel are on the far right of the beds.

Continuity mistake: When Dopey hangs up the key to the store at the mine, the key changes shape. It starts off with the handle wider than long, then, when it is hung up, it changes to longer than wide.

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: The chipmunk, on the back of the deer on which Snow White is putting the dirty clothes, "flickers".

Continuity mistake: When the queen is transformed into a hag, there is a big wart on her left hand. This wart later disappears.

Continuity mistake: When the queen is holding the poisoned apple on a string, the knot on the stem changes between shots.

Continuity mistake: From the beginning to the end of the scene where Snow White is making the pie for Grumpy, the items and animals on the table keep changing.

Continuity mistake: When the dwarves see their table in the beginning, some of the dinner utensils are blue. But later, when the dwarves run down for dinner, none of them are blue, they're all white.

Continuity mistake: When the animals all run away from the cottage because the dwarves are coming home, there are only white sheets over Snow White. However, we later see her with a multi-colored quilt over her too.

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.

Continuity mistake: After the dwarves attack Dopey because they think he is a monster, the items behind Dopey keep changing.

Continuity mistake: When Dopey comes into Snow White's room alone, there is a pot on a shelf next to the door. The next time anyone comes in the door is when the dwarves all come together, and in that scene the pot is gone.

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.
