Continuity mistake: At the start of the fight in the club, the stain on Clouseau's jacket (from the accident with the parrot) is visible. Partway through the fight it has faded significantly. By the end of the fight it has gone.

Revealing mistake: When Clouseau answers the phone he shuffles his right foot slightly so that it isn't directly over the spot that Dreyfus drills through a few seconds later.

Continuity mistake: The President of the US is watching football on channel 1. Dreyfus interrupts the broadcast and an aide flips through the channels to discover that Dreyfus is on all of them - the TV ends up on channel 9. Throughout the rest of the scene, the TV switches back and forth between channels 1 and 9 without human intervention.

Continuity mistake: After Dreyfus' pirate broadcast we are shown a black and white picture 'taken by a journalist during the broadcast'. The photograph is very unlike any image of Dreyfus' face in his telecast.

Continuity mistake: In the beginning, when Clouseau walks to the door of his apartment, there's a big pile of sugar in the elevator. This pile disappears during his silly dance, but returns when he tears his pants later.

Continuity mistake: When Clouseau, Cato and Olga fall into the river at the end of the film there are two shots of the fall (one from above, one from below). The two shots are different - the people are in different places and there are different amounts of debris and bedding.

Continuity mistake: When Dreyfus makes the first hole in the ceiling to spy on Clouseau, the latter spills sugar on that spot of the floor. Yet when we look through the telescope, the floor right in front of it has no sugar on it.

Continuity mistake: Inspector Closeau's large rectangular parcel - leaning against the table - changes position while he is opening the door to his flat.

Revealing mistake: When Clouseau is on the parallel bars, note the switch as he jumps and turns from Peter Sellers to stuntman, then note again as the stuntman falls down the stairs; the stuntman finishes falling behind the right hand side of the settee, and up pops Peter Sellers on the left hand side of the settee giving the apparant impression he has just fallen down the stairs himself.

Revealing mistake: When Clouseau yanks a man's tooth out, you can still see it; it's just blackened to appear missing.

Continuity mistake: In the hallway, Clouseau has spaghetti and a french loaf sticking up out of his shopping bag. When he enters his flat, the loaf has vanished.

Continuity mistake: When Clouseau is on the front page of the newspaper after being arrested in the Soho club the date on the front of the newspaper is Monday July 12th, but two other events in this film are in October, the beer festival and the disappearance of the UN building. The events of the film don't cover that long a timespan.

Add time

Continuity mistake: During Clouseau's visit to the asylum, when a completely soaked Dreyfus finally climbs out of the pond, his clothes have only partially wet patches before he sits on the bench and then they're soaked again.
