Continuity mistake: During the other father's song, notice the red record player by the door and the position it's in, with the lid facing Coraline when he says, "making up a song". When the camera angle changes and he says, "she's a doll", the record player's position changes completely, with the lid now facing the wall.

Continuity mistake: When Coraline first finds the door, we see her mother on her computer, with the "I Love Mulch" mug's handle facing the doorway so we can see the words. However, in the next shot of the mother, while the camera angle has changed, the mug has rotated itself and the words are still visible.

Continuity mistake: When Coraline and Wybie are flipped around Mr. Bobinsky's door on the way to the mouse circus, you can see that first they are on the outside of the door, then when they are in the house, it is the inside of the door. If they flipped on the door that way, they would stay on the same side of the door, not switch sides. You can tell by the curtain rod, you can see the ends of the rods where they are mounted only when they are in the house.

Mistakes

In the shot right before Coraline finds the hidden door for the first time, she says "Alright Little Me, where are you hiding?" and drops her notebook and pen on the floor. When the notebook and pen are falling, you can see the wires that were used to suspend them while they were being animated. It's a common stop motion technique, but these days they usually try to paint the wires out afterward. It's a pretty severe dutch angle though, and they're only visible for a few frames, so it's easy to miss.

Trivia
