The Jungle Book

Corrected entry: 'Now when you pick a pawpaw, or a prickly pear' is a line from 'Bare Necessities.' It doesn't work though, as neither pawpaws or prickly pears are native to India, where the film is set.

Correction: Neither are any bears except the sloth bear, which is nowhere near as big as Baloo.

Corrected entry: After Baloo and the Bagheera save Mowgli from King Louie you can see that Baloo and Bagheera both have a bruise on their eyes. Baloo has one on his left eye but when he looks at his reflection in he water the bruise jumps to his right eye, the reflection is reversed.

Correction: It's not a reflection; the viewer is looking up at Baloo and Bagheera through the water. That's why neither Baloo's bruise (left eye) nor Bagheera's (right eye) is reversed. Ditto the position of the characters; if it were a reflection, Bagheera would appear to be on the other side of Baloo.

Corrected entry: Some of the monkeys have prehensile tails. No Old World monkeys possess this trait, only some species of New World monkeys.

Correction: And no monkeys, in our universe, can speak like they do in this cartoon universe.

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.
