The Nightmare Before Christmas

Other mistake: When Jack first arrives in Christmas Land he doesn't know what is falling from the sky (snow) but he somehow knows that the children are throwing snowballs.

Other mistake: When Jack is handing out presents and the first house he goes to a kid catches him, and he hands him a present. Well you can see the bag of presents right next to the kid, but he never takes it back up, yet has it again later in the movie.

Continuity mistake: After Jack is blown out of the sky and is lying in the graveyard, he has several grey smudges on his face from the explosion. But in the very next shot, a birds-eye view of Jack lying across the angel, the smudges have disappeared. (00:59:10)
