Continuity mistake: When Jiminy shows us Geppetto's place, there's a toy soldier next to a camel. From the opposite angle the soldier is now a giraffe. Seconds later, after he warms himself up, he looks at the window and there're two giraffes on the left, while the toys on the right are totally different.

Continuity mistake: Before Cricket arrives, Pinocchio watches the 8 ball. The wide angle shows the painted 8 on the opposite side to where he is, but from Pinocchio's blurry POV angle the 8 has swapped sides and it's in-front of him. note: This mistake has nothing to do with the already listed one about the 8 ball. This one takes place before Cricket arrives.
