Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

New this week Continuity mistake: The Dwarfs' cottage has a window beside the front door which has a line of circles at the top and an irregular geometric pattern below, but when the animals hear the Dwarfs singing "Heigh-Ho" they rush downstairs, and as they pass that window it now has all circles.

New this week Continuity mistake: After the Queen's transformation into the Witch she heads to the Dwarfs' cottage, and when it cuts to the shot of Doc leaving the cottage there are two steps at the front door, but in the next shot there's only one step. The steps change in other shots as well.

New this week Continuity mistake: When Snow White opens the door to the cottage of the Seven Dwarfs, there's a latch hook attached to the door handle, but when the Dwarfs return home and Doc opens the door that latch is gone, but it's back again when Dopey slams into the door.

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.
