Continuity mistake: The number of pirates assaulting the hillside keeps changing. There are hundreds of them, then fewer than thirty, then hundreds again. In many scenes, in fact, there are far more pirates than could possibly fit aboard their one small ship.

Continuity mistake: While the two eldest boys are getting ready to sail around the island, Francis, the youngest boy, is playing with Rocky, the baby elephant. Francis is on Rocky's back, but in one shot, they are on the beach, near the water, and in the next shot, they are so far in the water that Rocky has to use his trunk as a snorkel.
