Continuity mistake: In the beginning, Jerry Lewis makes his special drink and it is the consistency of a milk-shake. Later in the movie he makes the same drink and it looks like cloudy water.

Revealing mistake: When Buddy love and Stella are standing at the lookout above LA, the background is obviously a poorly done painting.

Gavin Jackson

Other mistake: In the scene when Professor Kelp sticks his arm in the punch bowl the fruit juice stains his white jacket sleeve red. When he goes to his laboratory to make more formula to become Buddy Love, his white shirt sleeve underneath his stained white jacket sleeve is still white. It is hard to believe his jacket sleeve would stain and not his shirt sleeve as well.

Continuity mistake: In scene where Professor Kelp first transforms, the bird's cage switches between being covered and uncovered. (00:31:00)

Continuity mistake: When Professor Kelp throws the formula book at Jennifer, her cage is closed. When he returns to find the formula book destroyed, the cage door is open. (01:21:50 - 01:30:20)

Continuity mistake: In the first scene with Stella and Buddy Love at the Purple Pit, Stella's eye shadow is bright blue and extends above her eyebrows. When the scene moves to the hill above the city, her eye shadow switches between nonexistent and a light green. (00:46:00 - 00:50:45)
