Continuity mistake: Near the beginning when Mr. Cherrywood agrees to tell the children a story, four boys and four girls sprint over to two separate beds - where they all stay and listen for the remainder of the movie. In the immediate vicinity of the boys' bed is a nightstand with a half-filled drinking glass and a ball on top. Hanging from the wall above the headboard is a framed picture as well. Once Mr. Cherrywood wraps up his story, he and Mrs. Cherrywood start carrying the children to their own beds. But just before Tenderheart Bear peeks through the window, notice how the framed picture has become a poster fastened with two pieces of tape and the drinking glass has transformed into a table lamp.
