Popeye

Continuity mistake: Popeye goes to Bluto's ship. He finds his pappy there: he's tied to the chair hanging in the ceiling. Popeye gets excited, and notice that before he hugs his pappy he takes his pipe out of his mouth. When we see Popeye again, the pipe is back to his mouth. Too fast to be real.

Continuity mistake: After Wimpy and the Undertaker grab things off the sideboard, Papa Oyl can be seen at the table in the mirror. As the camera cuts to the dining room, he can be seen coming to the table.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: As the octopus pulls the rowboat under at the end, you catch a glimpse of Olive's legs, although the octopus was not near her at the time.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: At the races, Wimpy has Swee'pea at the line up board, asking which horse to bet on. As Castor walks in, the shot cuts to Wimpy at the board. The number 7 slot is empty, and no attendant is there. As the shots alternate between Wimpy and Castor, there is an attendant behind Wimpy erasing slot 7, starting to write, then gone again after Castor goes by. In the next moment, Wimpy is directly in front of the board asking Swee'pea. After picking Holy Moley, the next wide shot has the attendant back again with a name in slot 7.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie when the town is being introduced, the entire sign on the Oyls' house is crossed out. When Popeye goes to see about a room, only the S on the sign is crossed out. Afterwards, the entire sign is crossed out again.

Continuity mistake: In the beginning, there's a citizen ringing the bell. If you look carefully, the church appears to lit by strong daylight, but it's supposed to be stormy. After the bell ringer is done, the light strengthens as if the ringing awakens the town. The lighting on the church doesn't change at all.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: When Bluto has the chain around Popeye, he squeezes the can of spinach open. Before he force feeds the spinach, Popeye has his pipe. On the close up, Popeye's pipe is missing. After his mouth is full and before he goes under, the pipe is back in place.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: When the octopus is trying to get Swee'pea, Pappy lowers the hook that had his treasure chest on it to save Swee'pea. One moment the hook is right behind him, and after a quick cut to Pappy and back, the hook is missing.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: You see Wimpy pull out the racing form from his coat and then put it back in. After he leaves, Nana Oyl finds the racing form on the floor, but Wimpy didn't drop it.

Continuity mistake: When listening to Olive question Swee'pea, and his answers, Wimpy goes to pull something out of his coat pocket. When the shot goes to the father, you see both of Wimpy's hands. When the camera goes back to Wimpy, his right hand comes out of his coat with the racing form.

Continuity mistake: When looking at the storm clouds in the beginning, the sun can be seen peeking over the clouds at the far right side of the shot. Then, after a flash of lightning, the sun is not only completely hidden by the clouds, the clouds at that spot are now much higher than they were. Also, the sun's position suggested late afternoon, yet the movie opens in the early morning hours, when Sweethaven is beginning its day.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: After Popeye asks for an apology, the first guy grabbed offers his "hum-felt" apology, then gets thrown toward the door. After the shot cuts to see him go, there is a hat flying from his hand he didn't have..

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: At the end of the "Food Food Food" song, Popeye gives Wimpy the hamburger, and starts a conversation. There are two ketchup bottles on Wimpy's left. At the beginning of the chat, both bottles are nearly empty with just about a 1/2 inch in both. As the shots progress, the one nearest Wimpy goes from nearly empty to completely full and back again several times.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: During the "I'm Mean" song when Bluto is destroying the Oyl's house, Bluto throws something out of the first of a set of three windows. Then a second later, he smashes out the same window, then the second window.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: At the Oyls' house, during the engagement party, Nana Oyl gives Bluto a cup of tea, and moves off across the room. A few moments later after he drinks the tea, he starts to eat the teacup, and we see Nana's hands in frame on the right side where she served from. In the next shot, she's all the way across the room, too quickly.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: The gang of guys that knocked Popeye down and walked over him were the same ones that were moving a piano over the bridge where Popeye found his pipe only a minute before.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: Pappy's boat is 1/2 sunken in the harbor, sitting listed about 35 degrees to port (leaning about 35 degrees off center to the left side). Yet the interior shot shows the boat to be sitting about level, but about 5 degrees or so down at the bow (front).
