The Jungle Book
The Jungle Book mistake picture

Continuity mistake: The scene where Col. Hathi inspects his troops, he leans on his stick and it breaks. However, in the next scenes, the stick you see is sometimes broken and sometimes it is still complete.

Continuity mistake: When all the elephants line up for inspection, Winifred is at the start of the line, and first for inspection. But in later shots, another elephant has suddenly appeared to her right. (00:15:40)

Deliberate mistake: After Baloo and Bagheera escape from the monkeys, they both have a black eye. However, during their conversation by the water, between shots their black eyes vanish. [This is a Disney tradition, but still a mistake.]

Continuity mistake: When Mowgli finally gets to the man village and the girl drops the water vase, it rolls around and stops in front of him. The camera cuts off it and onto him, and when it cuts back, the vase is in a different spot than before.

Continuity mistake: During the "Bare Necessities" scene, Baloo picks a pawpaw fruit and you can see next to him there is a bunch of bananas. But after he has swallowed the fruit, the bananas have disappeared.

Continuity mistake: When Mowgli is left with the wolves at the start, the handles are close together. In the next shot they are wider. (00:03:00)

Character mistake: During "The Bare Necessities", when Mowgli climbs onto his back, Baloo asks him to scratch his left shoulder; Mowgli then proceeds to scratch Baloo's right shoulder.

Suggested correction: Mowgli starts with the left shoulder. After that he moves over the back when Baloo arches and ends up on the right shoulder.

New this month Suggested correction: Mowgli has lived with wolves for God knows how long. Wolves wouldn't just teach him the difference between left and right when they could teach him how to feed himself. For this reason, Mowgli could get it wrong. Also, the bear could've muddled up his words without realizing as, again, it isn't necessary to know left and right.
