Charlotte's Web

Corrected entry: When Mr. Zuckerman wins the $25 award for Wilbur, the announcer waves only one bill. It was green so it should have been cash, not a check, but there have never been $25 bills.

Correction: Or a green check/prize certificate?

Corrected entry: When the goose starts singing to the rat about the fair, she mentions candy on the ground. At that moment the rat's eyes bug out and his jaw drops as he drools. The very next shot is to the side and his eyes are then normal and his mouth closed.

Correction: It was a visual gag in a cartoon, the gag was over so he was shown as normal.

Corrected entry: When the rat is feasting at the fair, he eats many things. His body expands much more, proportionately, when he ate a single banana, that when eating a half of a watermelon.

Correction: The banana expansion was a just a visual gag; he's a cartoon rat during a musical montage in an animated film. He talks too, but that's not any more a "factual error" than this is.

Corrected entry: it is virtually impossible for a pig to look straight up into the sky. So it is hardly possible for Wilbur to be able to look up and see Charlotte on her web once, let alone the amount of times he freely does.

Correction: It is also impossible for pigs (or spiders, badgers, and sheep) to talk. The movie is not meant to be a realistic portrayal of pig behaviour. Also, virtually impossible is not impossible. Very unlikely, but that doesn't make it a film mistake.

Corrected entry: It seems strange that Charlotte had to ask the other barnyard animals how to spell "terrific," given how articulate she was. (She had no trouble reading anything else Templeton brought to her and used words like "Salutations!" and "magnum opus.").

Correction: I know sometimes I have problems spelling words like that, even though I'm an English teacher. Just because she uses words like salutations (which is something she could have grown up saying) and magnum opus, doesn't mean she can't have problems spelling words like "terrific". Even the most articulate people in the world can mis-spell words.

Corrected entry: Jeffrey, the gosling, is always following Wilbur around. So where is he after the fair, when Wilbur comes back heartbroken because Charlotte has died? They never show him again after the scene where the stuttering goose tells him he can't go to the fair too.

Correction: Maybe he got mad because he couldn't go to the fair and never visited Wilbur again. Maybe, he was a small Sunday lunch (it IS a farm). The point is, they don't have to update us on every single character. The story focused on Charlotte and Wilbur.

Wilbur: Are you writers?
Charlotte's daughters: No, but we will be when we grow up.
Wilbur: Then write this in your webs, when you learn: This hallowed doorway was once the home of Charlotte. She was brilliant, beautiful, and loyal to the end. Her memory will be treasured forever.
Charlotte's daughters: Ooh, that would take us a lifetime.
Wilbur: A lifetime. That's what we have.



When Wilbur is meeting Charlotte's three daughters in the barn entrance, the medal that the farmer hung there keeps appearing and disappearing between shots, though the duration of the scene.
