Deliberate mistake: While the mouse is walking on Dumbo's trunk, there is a jump in the animation. He's facing Dumbo at one point, then all of the sudden he is in a different position and is facing the other way (this all occurring in the same shot). Look for it before the mouse says, "Dumbo, the great!"
Continuity mistake: When the elephants in the circus are making a pyramid on top of a ball, as it changes from shot to shot the colour of the blankets on their backs changes, and one of the elephants changes from grey to blue.
Choral Effects: We work all day/We work all night/We never learned/To read or write/We're happy-hearted roustabouts!/When other folks/have gone to bed/We slave until/We're almost dead/We're happy-hearted roustabouts.
Trivia: When Timothy Mouse falls into a bucket of champagne, he emerges drunk and hiccups pink bubbles, which form a "Hidden Mickey."
