Corrected entry: When Wallace comes back in his techno-trousers the sheets are all crumbled up, the way they would be if a normal person got out of bed. But that's not how Wallace's invention works. In Wallace's invention, he slides out of bed and into his clothes, and the sheets remain spread over the bed.
Corrected entry: When Gromit is pouring tea at the start, the watch is not on his arm, but the next second it miraculously appears.
Corrected entry: The penguin can't see Gromit blink under the boxes. He also can't even see him looking under the covers from a few feet away. So now that we have clarified that he has ridiculously bad eyesight, how is it that he saw Wallace's tiny sign "Room to Let, Apply Within" that he put at the corner of his window?
Corrected entry: After Gromit enters the cupboard, the penguin turns the key to lock him in, and a fingerprint can be seen on his wing.
Corrected entry: When Gromit is dialing up the program for the trousers to run, muttering "Ten minutes, twenty minutes", there are clear marks on his hand and sleeve which are unmistakable as fingerprints.
Corrected entry: When Wallace and Gromit are locked in the cupboard, Gromit takes off the metal rectangle on Wallace's trousers and puts it down at the bottom of the cupboard. A little later, the two are able to make the top of the cupboard come off. In this shot we can see the bottom of the cupboard. The metal rectangle is gone.
Corrected entry: During the chase scene, the penguin removes a peg, thus disconnecting the part of the train he is on with the part Gromit is on. He does this twice in two shots.
Corrected entry: When Wallace falls into the techno-trousers, why doesn't he get jam fired at him, as happens to Gromit later? It used to need a button press, but Wallace changed that before this point. He couldn't have changed it after this, since he spends the whole day running around town in the trousers and then goes straight to bed.
Corrected entry: In the beginning when they have breakfast, you can see the railroad tracks in the dining room. Obviously this is one of Wallace's permanent inventions used to deliver items. However, for much of the rest of the house, including the area near the stairs, the living room, and the door with the red flap, the tracks don't appear until the chase scene at the end.
Corrected entry: When Gromit gets the mail and flips through it you can see a fingerprint on his right ear.
Corrected entry: Wallace has installed buttons that control the techno-trousers and the penguin later moves these buttons onto a remote control. The thing is, there are the same number of buttons and switches on the trousers as on the remote control, and at the museum the penguin pushes these buttons to make the mechanical arm come out of the helmet. This isn't possible because Wallace made the buttons solely for the trousers. He didn't know about the helmet- it was all the penguin's idea. The penguin would have had to add buttons of his own onto the remote control to make it work.
Corrected entry: When Gromit is looking at the penguin's plan to steal the diamond, there are some pencils at the corner of the poster near where is says "Museum", but in the next shot, these pencils disappear.
Corrected entry: When the penguin comes to inspect the museum, all he brings is a pad of paper and pencil (we see this as he is walking by the café) but suddenly when Gromit spies on him he has a tape measurer with him. Just because this is a cartoon doesn't mean that the characters can pull things out of nowhere.
Corrected entry: The penguin's eyesight ability keeps changing. At one point, he takes out a book called "Electronics for Dogs", and since he ends up switching the controls that are attached to the trousers onto switched to a remote, it's obvious that he can read the small print in the book. Also, when he comes to inspect the museum, he takes detailed measurements with a tape measurer. But when he stares at Gromit, who is hiding under the box, and Gromit blinks, he walks away without doing anything. And when Gromit is peeking at the penguin from under the covers and sees for the first time with the rubber glove on, the penguin doesn't see him.
Corrected entry: When Gromit looks at the calendar, he has a watch on his right arm. It disappears in later shots.
Corrected entry: When Gromit is on the couch and then stands up you can see a fingerprint on his head.
Corrected entry: When Gromit leaves his house, he brings a comb, a bone, and an alarm clock with him. Yet before he comes back to the house, he is shown with a newspaper, a knife, and coins. None of these items are even included in Gromit's hut. So where did he get these things from?
Corrected entry: During the train scene at the end, the penguin fires three shots at Gromit, and each time it leaves a mark on his helmet. But suddenly there is a shot of Gromit and his helmet only has two marks.
Corrected entry: When the bread pops out of the toaster, the center of the toast is very black. Then when Gromit has it, we see that it is nice and brown, even though we should have been able to see the black parts.
Corrected entry: During the train scene, Gromit is dangling from a lamp on the ceiling. Then Feathers McGraw shoots the lamp, Gromit falls onto the train, and the lamp is on his head. But as earlier seen, there is a light bulb in the lamp, so shouldn't we have seen and heard breaking glass?
Corrected entry: When the penguin tries to rob the diamond, he uses a mechanical arm from inside Wallace's helmet to grab the diamond. However, the arm is not very precise, and Wallace needs to be exactly over the diamond to get it. When the diamond falls from the mechanical arm, it falls slightly to the right of the arm, but the arm is able to grab it. This is not possible. The penguin did not move Wallace to get it, and even if he had, this would have taken a few seconds, by which time the diamond would have definitely struck the floor.
Corrected entry: When Wallace falls through the trap door to the breakfast table, the automatic dressing machine puts his right sleeve on first, then the left. When Gromit later accidentally falls through, it puts the left sleeve on him first. Even though Gromit is backwards in the chair, the machine obviously doesn't know this, because it puts the shirt and vest on facing forward.
Corrected entry: When Gromit spies on the penguin under the box, the penguin suddenly stares in his direction. Gromit blinks. But then the penguin walks away without doing anything. Why wasn't Gromit revealed when he blinked? The penguin was staring right in his direction.
