Audio problem: In the French, German and Spanish version, in the song Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, before Mary Poppins says the word backward. While Mary and Bert sing in the dubbed version, in these three languages, you can hear the English version in the background. You can hear it louder in the French version.

Audio problem: After Bert rescues the Fox from the dogs the Fox says "Tis an elegant merry go round horse." If you look closely you'll notice that the voice recording is slightly off-sync with the animation on the Fox's mouth.

Continuity mistake: At the bank where the elder Mr. Dawes appears from the back room, he makes it as far as the edge of the step in that shot. In the next shot, he's back by the door walking again to the edge of the step.
