The Hunchback of Notre Dame

Other mistake: During the "Hellfire" sequence, when Frollo is singing "God have mercy on her, God have mercy on me...", his shadow against the wall behind him rises as he backs up closer to the wall. However, when he turns around to press against the wall, his shadow ends up far above his body when it should have become level with his body by that point - like the very next close-up shot of Frollo shows, which is itself a continuity error.

Factual error: During the song "A Guy Like You," one of the gargoyles trips the trapdoor on Quasimodo's miniature hangman's scaffold. Trapdoors weren't used on scaffolds until the 18th century.

Frollo: And look what else I've caught in my net. Captain Phoebus, back from the dead. Another "miracle", no doubt. I shall remedy that.

Question: When Frollo, has Ezmeralda, in his grip in the the church, he says "I was just imagining a rope around that beautiful neck" and she says "i know what you were imagining", what was he thinking? I assume its something sexual, but its a cartoon.

Answer: It was most certainly sexual. Frollo's whole arc was his fight against his carnal desires (seeing Esmerelda dancing in the fire, sniffing her hair, etc). In order to maintain a G-rating, they couldn't be overtly sexual, which is why it's done through suggestion and subtext.

JC Fernandez

Answer: The entire point is that he lusts after her. However, the Disney movie does not dive into that nearly as much as the novel.
