Other mistake: The Spanish version has all the titles and signs changed to Spanish text as we can see when Carl opens the photo album. However, a side angle shows the letters 'O' and 'D' revealing it's the original English text, "Things To do."

Other mistake: After Carl and Russell meet with Cumulonimbus cloud Carl takes a nap and we find that Russell wakes him up, after that we see that Carl goes and peeps out of the window he places his walking stick near to him and facing him, the next to next shot we see that its moved and is facing opposite to him.even though the camera is moved a bit its not possible for the stick to rotate so much and moved.

Other mistake: Shortly after the house takes off for the first time, in a scene where part of the city can be seen that includes various buildings and houses, the shadow of Carl's house and the balloons can be seen on the ground. At first glance it looks OK, but the angle of the shadows of objects on the ground is completely different from the shadow projected by the house. The buildings on the ground are projecting a shadow to the left, indicating that the sun is low to the right. However Carl's house shadow indicates a light source from behind the camera which is about perpendicular to the shadows on the ground. To be technically correct in this shot, all shadows must point away from the camera and the sun should be located behind the camera if the house's shadow is to be seen in the shot.

Dug: My master made me this collar. He is a good and smart master and he made me this collar so that I can talk. Squirrel!.My master is good and smart.
Carl: It's not possible!
Dug: It is, because my master is smart.



When the house first becomes detaches from its foundation and becomes airborne, Russell is nowhere to be seen, although every angle of the house is shown, including underneath, the front porch and the back porch. He knocks on the door and tells Carl he chased a "snipe" under the porch - but he cannot be seen after liftoff and prior to knocking. The same thing happens near the end, when Dug claims to have hidden under the porch.



Jordan Nagai, who eventually got the part of Russell, showed up to an audition with his brother, who was actually the one auditioning. However, the director realized Nagai behaved and spoke non-stop like Russell and chose him for the part. A similar situation happened with the casting of Short Round for Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, whereby Jonathan Ke Quan was cast when it was actually his brother auditioning for the part.
