Revealing mistake: When Alan Frog is reaching for a stake off of Edgar Frogs back the stake is a "trick" stake. He pulls it facing upward and the tip falls down into the stake. As he lowers it off camera he flips it downward and then shows it again and the tip is back out. (01:10:35)

Question: This may just be me over analysing the film but this is something that has been eating away at me for a while - In this film, one of the vampires tells the Frog Brothers that garlic doesn't work, however through the next two films, Edgar Frog can be seen using garlic numerous times. Was the vampire lying or is this a mistake on the film maker's part?

Answer: He was lying. He was trying to scare them, not expecting them to scoop the water and throw it at him.
