A Charlie Brown Christmas

Continuity mistake: In the same scene at Lucy's Psychiatric Help stand in which the Doctor is both "in" and "real in", the word "Doctor" also moves around on the sign at one point. (00:04:40)

Continuity mistake: Charlie Brown's Christmas tree is never the same. When we first see it, it has three branches. Later, when he's carrying it, it has four branches. Then, when he tries to decorate it and it flops over, it has six branches.

Continuity mistake: When Charlie Brown is talking to Lucy at her Psychiatrist booth, the sign says "The Doctor is Real In" or "The Doctor is In" depending on the viewing angle.

Continuity mistake: The string of Christmas lights which the Peanuts gang remove from Snoopy's doghouse are flashing multi-colored lights. After they "re-do" the little tree, at first the string of lights is not on the tree. In following shots, the string of lights appear, but they are now steady-on yellow lights. (00:23:45)

Professor Zed

Continuity mistake: This one goes by fast. At the beginning of the show, the skating children are seen all linked together in an extreme close-up. In a long-shot immediately after that, the last few children are shown just arriving to link up. (00:02:05)

Professor Zed

Continuity mistake: When Linus gives his biblical recital on the true meaning of Christmas, there is a United States flag on stage at the top of the stairs (viewer's right). When the shot changes to a side view of Linus, the flag is not there. (00:20:45 - 00:21:30)

Professor Zed

Continuity mistake: When Snoopy first decorates his doghouse, there are trees and a wooden fence near the doghouse. Later, when the Peanuts gang remove the decorations from the doghouse, neither the trees nor the fence are there anymore. (00:07:15 - 00:24:10)

Professor Zed

Continuity mistake: When Charlie Brown and Linus leave the auditorium to go and get a Christmas tree, they are shown exiting the same yellow building which they had exited from at the beginning of the show. Later, when Charlie Brown exits from the same auditorium, bringing the little tree with him, he exits from a red brick building. (00:16:15 - 00:22:10)

Professor Zed

Continuity mistake: While Schroeder is playing piano, Snoopy abruptly pops in out of nowhere, in the middle of the frame, and starts dancing.
