Continuity mistake: When it shows the opening shot of the United Nations building, we see a woman in a purple dress enter through the rotating doors. Behind her is a man with a bowler hat on, walking towards the doors, and behind him is a coloured man wearing a fez. Yet when it cuts to a view from inside, the man in the fez is now walking through the doors. Then, the woman in the purple dress, who we saw previously entering the doors and walking into the building, is once again outdoors, entering again with the man in the bowler hat behind her.
Continuity mistake: The message from the bottle, written by Penny, has a couple of mistakes. When it falls from the bottle the writing is several inches from the top of the paper and part of the letter says "New York." When it cuts, the writing on the letter starts right near the top of the paper, and it now reads "New Yorc." Also between different shots, the writing on the note changes from being written in cursive to printed.
Continuity mistake: When Nero and Brutus bring Penny back, they walk through two double doors, one of which is broken, and off its hinges. They are left open, yet when Medusa enters, she walks through the same doors. Not only are they now closed, but the one which was off its hinges is now fixed back on.

Continuity mistake: When Evinrude takes Bernard and Bianca to Medusa's hideout, in the small leaf-boat, Bernard tells Evenrude to wait at the edge of the land and then him and Bianca walk away from the water, past grass and reeds. Then when it cuts and Medusa flies overhead on her motorboat, Evinrude and his leaf-boat, and the grass/reeds that Bernard and Bianca passed, have all disappeared from the edge of the land.
Continuity mistake: When Bernard and Bianca go to the orphanage, they rummage through a box labelled "Penny", then Rufus finds them and they talk. As Bianca and Bernard climb from out of the box, as Bernard stands on the cardboard flap, his hands are empty. It cuts and now the lantern has appeared in his hand.
Continuity mistake: When Medusa is sitting down, after the gators catch Penny, her staff lays on her lap, and when she cries "You force them to like you...", the staff rod turns red for a shot - the same colour as her dress. The staff rod also differs throughout the film from being black to brown. This can be seen when Medusa hits Snoops and one of her pet gators with it.
Continuity mistake: Bernard's hat constantly changes throughout the entire zoo scene. Before they enter, it's just a hat with no straps. Then, when he is running away from the lion, his hat is attached, then disappears completely when he is fighting with the umbrella and lantern. Then when they are running again, the hat is back to being attached but now chin straps tied. When they get out of the zoo, the hat is on with the straps hanging loose, not tied anymore. During this entire time he is in a panic mode to get away from the zoo, he wouldn't take the time to adjust his chin straps and there is no time between shots at the end for him to untie the straps.
Continuity mistake: While her underwear is exposed several times, Penny's undergarments are worn over her tights. but when she is seen undressed and donning her nightgown, she is still wearing her underwear but not her tights. There's no way she could have removed her tights without removing her underwear first.
Continuity mistake: When Penny is first captured by Brutus and Nero, Brutus initially holds her by the strap in back of her dress. In fact, that is how Brutus carries Penny back to the river boat through the swamp. However, when the crocodiles return to the river boat with Penny, Brutus is suddenly holding Penny upside down by her underwear. There is no explanation for how Brutus could have possibly turned Penny around like that without releasing her just for a moment and preventing her from escaping. It even stands to reason that Brutus would not release Penny until he got her back to the river boat. Additionally, when Brutus carries Penny upside down through the door of the river boat, Penny is facing toward Brutus. but in the next shot when the crocodiles are inside the river boat with Penny, she is suddenly facing away from Brutus.
