Continuity mistake: The screen doors on the Darlings' front doors appear and disappear between scenes. Also, with double doors, one door is bolted shut with top and bottom latches most of the time ("inactive") with the other door being the "active" door that is opened and closed when coming or going. However, throughout the film characters open either door, which would be impossible to do without interfering with the lock mechanism, the door stop mouldings, etc. and damaging the doors' edges.

Continuity mistake: Darling's wedding ring keeps appearing and disappearing off of her finger throughout the film, and in the scene where she is putting the flower pot on the window sill, it changes to her right hand instead of her left.

Continuity mistake: While Lady is in her backyard shouting at Tramp, she kicks a bone in his direction. But watch closely: the bone is on a trajectory to overshoot the dog food tray, but it somehow lands there in the following shot. (01:04:10)


Continuity mistake: When Tramp killed the rat in the baby's room, Lady's chain disappears as Tramp is walking back to the baby bed.

Continuity mistake: When Jim Dear is at the kitchen table reading his torn morning paper, he reaches through the front page to grab his cup of coffee from a plate. But in the next shot where Lady is at his feet wagging her tail in anticipation for some coffee, a piece of toast and butter knife suddenly appear from nowhere among the other items on the table. (00:09:30)


Continuity mistake: When Lady tries walking into Jim Dear's bachelor party, several men are standing directly beneath the door frame. But nobody is anywhere near the frame one shot later where Lady makes her way through. (00:26:30)


Continuity mistake: During Tramp's walk through town on a search for breakfast, he notices a few puppies for sale and takes a moment to admire them. The hands of the downtown clock behind his left shoulder are positioned at 7:00 A.M., but when Tramp turns away and resumes walking the clock reads 1:00 P.M. (00:15:45)


Continuity mistake: When Trusty is having a dream on his porch, a striped caterpillar makes his way down from a potted plant on the front door's right side. So Trusty - still asleep - sniffs his way along the porch's floorboards where the caterpillar falls between a crack. Suddenly he wakes up to see Lady and Jock waiting at the staircase. In the next shot he's asking which way the caterpillar went, but if you look at the plant behind him you can see how it's now placed on the door's left side instead. (00:12:00)


Continuity mistake: When the Dears are in the rocking chairs by the fireplace, Lady is lying on a pink rug, when the shot changes the rug has vanished.

Trivia: Although the spaghetti-eating sequence is now the best known scene, Walt Disney originally did not want it in the film as he thought it would not be romantic and that two dogs eating spaghetti would look ridiculous. Animator Frank Thomas was against Walt's decision and animated the entire scene himself without any lay-outs. Walt was so impressed with Thomas's work he decided to keep the scene in.
