Continuity mistake: When Tiger and Fievel are doing their musical piece, Tiger wipes off the mirror and they appear the same size. When he lays out in front of the mirror, singing the line "We'll be there to pick each other off the floor", he places his head next to the cage bottom, still laying on the floor between them. In the mirror, however, that cage bottom is not reflected at all.
Continuity mistake: Just before Gussie leaves Mickey O'Hare's wake, Fievel can be seen in the background behind Honest John eating a large piece of cheese from a nearby teacup. However in the next shot he's standing in a completely different location and no longer has any cheese in his hands.
Continuity mistake: After the Giant Mouse of Minsk lands in the ocean, a vacant pier can be seen from an underwater perspective. But once the angle changes seconds later, all of the mice are suddenly looking down below at the wreckage. Additionally, two ropes appear from nowhere hanging over the pier's edge.
Continuity mistake: At Mouse Garden headquarters outside of the Commission of Immigration, several vendors are trying to sell things to a crowd. Below a top hat is a sign which distinctly reads 'Mouse Garden'. But fast forward to the one offering a used ticket to Chicago right near the headquarter entrance and you'll see how it now says 'Immigration Mouse Garden' instead.
Continuity mistake: During the storm, Fievel crawls to the edge of the step he's on and watches two fish flop around below deck. Keep an eye on his blue hat. At first it's in his left hand, but between shots the hat somehow jumps below the step he's on - from which he pulls it out with his right hand and places it back on his head.
Continuity mistake: During the rally at Mausheimer Park, Fievel steps up to the podium and whispers a plan into Gussie's megaphone. When Honest John asks to hear it, Gussie can be seen holding the megaphone's handle with three fingers as she speaks to him. But once the shot changes, she suddenly has only two fingers on the handle.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Fievel speaks to Tony for the first time about finding his family, he jumps up from the lower bunk bed and walks towards the window with a plan in mind. But between shots, several things change: Tony is awoken when Fievel accidentally kicks the top bunk (whereas he was fully alert and talking in the previous shot), clothespins holding the bunks together suddenly become wrapped in string around their centers, an orphan mouse appears from nowhere - sleeping by the window, and Fievel instantly switches from lying face down to belly before jumping out of bed.
Continuity mistake: During the storm, Fievel gets carried off on a bar of soap. Upon making his way to the staircase he's seen five steps down below the swinging door, ducking for cover as a wave crashes into the lower deck seconds later. But after the wave passes by, he looks up at the swinging door from the sixth step instead - having not moved from his place through it all.
Continuity mistake: Throughout the orphan alley scene, from the point where Fievel gets taunted by a gang of bullies until he hears Papa's violin in the distance, the slanted window in the background is broken in different places from one shot to the other. At one point is has no visible breaks anywhere at all.
Continuity mistake: Before Digit jumps out from Warren T. Rat's pocket, he pushes out all kinds of accessories such as pencils and playing cards. But when Warren T. looks in the mirror trying to figure out how to make an extra fifty cents, the items reappear - sticking out of his pocket again.
Continuity mistake: Throughout the entire scene involving Fievel being locked in a cage and singing "A Duo" along with Tiger, his blue hat is nowhere to be found. But after the floor mirror's glass shatters, he and Tiger are locked in a handshake and, all of a sudden, the hat is now tucked under his belt.
Continuity mistake: During the storm, Fievel makes his way to the staircase and climbs a rope onto the fourth step. Suddenly a torrent of water rushes in from the deck above, forcing him to take cover. When Fievel emerges to look at some washed-up fish down on the floor below, the rope is nowhere to be seen - but it soon reappears a few shots later when Papa chases after him.
Continuity mistake: In the opening scene where Tanya and Fievel receive their Hanukkah gifts, Papa can be seen tying on a new headscarf for Tanya in front of a mirror. When Tanya turns around to admire it in the following shot, Papa's hands are still working but his reflection isn't visible in the mirror.
Continuity mistake: After Gussie Mausheimer walks out of Mickey O'Hare's wake, Bridget asks to speak with Honest John regarding Fievel's family. Pay attention to the attendees in the background who are gathered around Mickey's picture: they keep disappearing in every other shot throughout the remainder of the scene.
Continuity mistake: When Fievel is curiously wandering around below the ship's deck he discovers three barrels of herring, each one of which is specifically marked for breakfast, lunch and dinner (dinner being closest to the staircase). A little while later, Fievel is being tossed around on a bar of soap that carries him back to the barrels of herring. But when he lands on the dinner barrel, it's now marked as breakfast instead.

Continuity mistake: After Fievel gets captured by Warren T. Rat, he's ordered to work alongside numerous other mice in a tailor shop. In the following scene where everybody's asleep, Fievel jumps from his bed and walks over to the nearest window - making a reference to Rapunzel's hair and how well it would work to escape with. All of a sudden, two long white sheets conveniently appear on the floor behind him out of nowhere, from which he makes a long rope to rappel down the side of the building (not unlike Rapunzel's hair).
Continuity mistake: When Warren T. Rat is near the museum's entrance trying to negotiate with Gussie, he's wearing his purple nightcap and a rat disguise. But Tony's not convinced he's really a rat, so he sets out to expose Warren T. by firing his slingshot. In the following shot part of Warren T.'s disguise falls off as planned, but he's now holding the nightcap instead of wearing it. After replacing the nightcap he tries to explain his way out of the situation, but once again in the very next shot where Tony takes aim to fire a second time, he's suddenly shown holding the nightcap.
Continuity mistake: When Warren T. Rat is playing his violin off-key, there's a female statue behind him adorned with candles, and at first glance it seems to be in good condition. But after Fievel witnesses Warren T. shedding his rat disguise, the statue is now significantly cracked in many places.
Continuity mistake: When the secret weapon is released from Professor Digitalus' Museum, it demolishes the door and scares every cat onto the Star of Hong Kong's anchor. Just a few minutes later, Fievel can be seen passed out on an eyehook in the vacant museum. That's where a flame ignites a trail of kerosene, but when it soon becomes a full-blown fire, the door is once again intact (locks, chains and all) as though nothing happened.

Continuity mistake: During the storm, two mice are shown playing a game of chess on a board which floats back and forth with the ship's motion. After the first mouse makes his move, it drifts across to player two. However, in the very next shot two things occur: the board's color changes from black & red to black & white, and the square pattern arrangement changes to that of a checkerboard (which means a black square is placed at the lower right hand edge of each player's side).
Continuity mistake: When Fievel is making his way through the sewer looking for Papa, he enters the Mott Street Maulers' hideout where five cats are seen playing poker. The gray cat with a blue shirt is sitting on the carpet's edge, but in the next shot he's somewhere towards the middle instead.
Continuity mistake: While Honest John is pushing both hands against the secret weapon to keep it from escaping, a clock strikes 6:00 A.M. At this point he raises his left hand and shouts, "Release the secret weapon." But when the shot changes, he's suddenly got both hands in place on the weapon once again.
Continuity mistake: When Gussie is demonstrating a secret weapon plan for the other mice, she points to a world map, pushing a small wooden boat from the end of a dock all the way to Hong Kong and leaves it there for the remainder of her speech. After she's finished Gussie dismisses the mice, but now the boat has returned itself to the original location on the map.
