Continuity mistake: When Pistachio is dressed a the cherryman, he spits his cherries at the henchman. He turns and spits one cherry, hitting one henchman right on the forehead. The henchman then falls backwards into the swimming pool, causing a huge splash. But in the very next shot, the water is totally still and the henchman seems to have disappeared from the pool.

Plot hole: When Pistachio and Jennifer go to the toy convention to find Bowman she says her name is Barbara, and Bowman invites her to his house. When Pistachio comes looking for her at the door (as the German Guy and the Snobby English Guy) he says he needs to talk to Jennifer Baker. Wouldn't he ask to see Barbara instead of Jennifer? Also Bowman knows her as Barbara and didn't say anything about him calling her Jennifer.

Jennifer: ...And now I believe that you can do anything.
Pistachio Disguisey: Ah! That's very nice but not exactly true, I... I can't turn mud into oatmeal, for example, I can't build a spaceship that will travel to Pluto.

Question: I don't understand it when Pistachio's mother, on the camera screen, saying "no more caramel corn for me." What was that about?

Hamster Premium member

Chosen answer: Bowman has captured Fabrizzio, and he has to do something with Mrs. Disguisey, so he says "Thanks to a special potion we put in the caramel corn, she thinks she is still at home preparing dinner," and then we see her on the TV screen eating the caramel corn and making food. She then later "pretends" to prepare food, then when Bowman tells the guard to pounce on Mrs. Disguisey, she whacks him, as if she were aware that she has been captured. She then informs the camera "No more caramel corn for me."
