After Sarah says, "It's all junk," the garbage lady grabs a ballerina music box and says, "Well what about this, this is not junk," and hands it to Sarah. She takes it, then for a second it cuts back to the garbage lady. The music box is still sitting on the table after it was handed to Sarah.

xx:xx:xx

xx:xx:xx

Hamster

Continuity mistake: When Jareth's shadow menacingly appears on the rug beside the crib, Sarah's legs face the doorway on the rug - which has light stripes parallel to the doorway.

xx:xx:xx

Super Grover
Labyrinth mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Sarah walks into the darkened bedroom, in the shots facing the double back doors the hanging light fixture over the crib, the mobile, and picture beside it are all visible. When Jareth appears, in the first shot facing him, the mobile hangs lower (note the archway), the picture is closer to the floral trim around the archway; and solely for Jareth's dramatic entrance, the light fixture is gone - though it should easily be visible in this shot, and the crib is now at an angle.

Continuity mistake: After Sarah runs up the stairs and shouts, "I can't do anything right, can I?" in the next two close-ups of her stepmother, the foyer table stands on an area rug with multi floral at the edge, inner red floral and a center floral medallion. As the camera pans out in the next shot, the table stands on the medallion, whereas in the previous close-ups it stood farther over, on the red.

xx:xx:xx

Super Grover

Continuity mistake: The twin doors in the bedroom fly open, and as a result the curtains are opened and pulled behind each of the doors as the owl flies through. However in the close-up of the owl attacking Sarah the curtains are visible and they are now blowing in front of the open doorway. Then as Jareth's shadow is seen on the rug, it's clear that the curtains are pulled apart by their shadow, which is also the case in the next shot of Jareth standing in the doorway with the curtains indeed pulled behind the doors.

xx:xx:xx

Super Grover

Continuity mistake: When Sarah, Hoggle, Ludo and Sir Didymus enter the center of the Goblin City, a cannonball is fired at them, but it misses and it hits a clean portion of one house's white wall. However in a previous shot, the same portion of wall was covered in a black grubby substance.

Between this wide shot, and the next closeup, the soldier's spears go from not being pointed at Didymus, to being pointed right close to him. The spears being pointed at him in the closeup also are different to the spears that belonged to the guards in front of him too (check the flags hanging at the end of the spears.)

I wouldn't go either way," the whole top portion of his body is visible, and you can clearly see that the leather belt is not attached at the top of his jacket. It seems to have gone in this shot. However after he says "You know your thing, you take to many things for granted," the belt is now back, reattached to the top of his jacket.

Continuity mistake: In the tunnel as the cleaners approach, Sarah and Hoggle fall with the door as it slams to the ground near the ladder. The bottom of the ladder is surrounded by the broken door as well as other debris.

Then later, when the three Samurai Goblins jump in front of Sarah and the rest, the sign's chain is broken once again.

Continuity mistake: When Sarah and friends are confronted by the massive metal robot, smoke drifts out from behind it. Then in the next shot, the smoke has totally disappeared, and more smoke then starts to drift out once again.

Continuity mistake: When Sarah is in Jareth's 'glass' bubble, as she lifts the chair in order to break the glass, the blue cushion has a perfectly straight seam, the cushion ties are tied to the back of the chair, and the wood underside of the chair is visible surrounded by the tubular frame. However, in the next shot as the chair goes through the glass, the blue cushion seam at the back is very crooked, the cushion tie is gone and the underside of the chair is completely different.

Super Grover

Continuity mistake: When Sarah initially takes a bite out of the peach, the bite is completely different when she is lying on the trash heap and then in the following close-up when she sees the worm.

Continuity mistake: As Hoggle pushes the head of the big metallic robot off, it lands close to the left foot of the robot. But when the goblin is thrown out of the robot, the metal head is now by the right foot, nearer to the spikes.

Continuity mistake: Sir Didymus (riding Ambrosius) is in front of the building with the hammer sign in Goblin City, when he quickly rides away shouting, "No. Not that way!" He is at least three houses away from the building with the hanging hammer sign, when it cuts to the many Goblin guards chasing him. Then, in the third overhead shot, Sir Did rides past that same building with the hammer sign - and now things like the sharpening stone table, the cart with baskets, etc., differ.

Super Grover

Continuity mistake: When Sarah is dropped down by the hands, just after a pair said 'Would you like us to let go?' you can see some hands by the left of Sarah mouthing words but with nothing actaully being said.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: When the old hag hands Sarah her lipstick, the actual lipstick is sticking out of the tube. We see that it still is in the mirror shot too, but when it cuts back to Sarah the lipstick is no longer sticking out the end of the tube.

Continuity mistake: Through the song "Chilly Down," a tree branch is seen, as one of the Fireys hangs on it. This branch is short in close ups, but much longer in wide shots.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: When Sir Didymus threatens Ambrosius with no food to stop his retreat, as the dog walks back into the shot you can see the gray and white mixture on his head. In the close up, the dog's head is all white.

Continuity mistake: As Ludo pops up in the tower of the house in Goblin City, the roof goes over behind him and stops as if on a hinge. A moment later as he calls the rocks, the roof is missing.

Continuity mistake: When Sarah and her stepmother are arguing at the start of the film, Sarah's hair is completely soaked from the rainstorm, but a few minutes later, when she's at her vanity table and her dad is talking to her, her hair is completely dry, and there's no way she could have dried it that quickly, even if she used a hairdryer.

Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the "Chilly Down" scene, the firey with the long thin mouth and ponytail on the top of his head jumps on Sarah. The others gather around her. Then the chubby firey says, "Come on, Come on!" calling over another firey; however, all five fireys are in the shot around Sarah. The following shot is of the top half of a firey bouncing over on his hands, but this is the same firey that already jumped on Sarah and is still on her.

Schwielala

Continuity mistake: When Sarah kisses Hoggle, they fall through a hole and end up in the Bog of Eternal Stench. They walk the narrow cliff for a while and then Sarah falls onto solid ground and finds Luto right there next to her. Then Hoggle falls. Somehow, without Luto moving, Hoggle ends up under Luto. Luto never sits down. He is pushed to the ground when Hoggle falls on top of him. His butt is on the floor before Hoggle lands.
