Continuity mistake: Before the animals start to sew Cinderella's dress Jack says "Cinderella might not go to the ball", then a mouse sitting on the edge of a spool of thread with a needle showing behind her cries "What?" The shot changes and she's now sitting on the center of the spool and the needle is nowhere to be seen. This changes back and forth depending on the angle.

Continuity mistake: After throwing the bookends away, the King leans on the table and stares at the Duke. In the first shot the King's tummy lies on the table and his left hand grabs the left edge. A shot later he is half a meter away, standing by the table with both hands lying by his belly.

Deliberate mistake: The first time we see the King, the bookends and books are sketchy drawings that bear no relation to the fully detailed ones that we see afterwards.
