Continuity mistake: When Pee Wee gathers everyone together in his basement to discuss his stolen bike, there's a shot of his dog Speck sitting in front of a person wearing horrible plastic pink or orange boots. It's Pee Wee's friend, Dotty. In the next shot, Dotty comes down the stairs...
Continuity mistake: In the pet store fire scene, you see an aquarium full of fish. At one point Pee Wee stops to rescue them by scooping them into a plastic bag filled with water. While he's doing this, the aquarium is nearly empty. In the last scene of the sequence (as he's running out of the store with the snakes), the aquarium is again chock-full of fish.
Continuity mistake: When Pee-Wee finds the Alamo, he is shown holding a San Antonio travel brochure. Notice how his right hand grips the bottom near a crease and his left hand holds the left side. In the next shot he lowers the brochure and starts to chuckle out loud, but now his right hand is positioned on the right side instead.
Continuity mistake: As he leaves his house, PeeWee manually turns on his 'sprinklers' (the Water Wiggle toy) and warns his neighbour he is about to start watering the lawn. He then goes to the rear of the property to retrieve his bike. When he returns to the front yard (just a minute or so later) the sprinklers are no longer running.
Continuity mistake: After Pee-Wee loses the Warner Bros. security crew on his tail, he sees a burning pet shop and decides to rescue the animals inside. Take a look at the early '80s red and black Chevy Suburban parked by the entrance. Whenever Pee-Wee runs outside, the amount of sunlight cast on the vehicle changes (sometimes lots of light, very little light or none at all) as though the scene were filmed at different parts of the day, then pieced together.
Continuity mistake: Early in the Warner Bros. studio chase sequence we see a team of security guards in pursuit of Pee-wee. Somehow the guard in front switches from using a golf cart to a bicycle, all within a few brief cuts. This is the same guard who pulled the right handle from Pee-wee's bike moments ago.
Continuity mistake: When Pee-Wee is on the roadside trying to hitch a ride to Texas, the sun casts a shadow behind him which is mostly parallel to the road. But in the subsequent shots of oncoming cars, the sun is casting a long shadow on each one's passenger side - obviously implying a different time of day.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Andy chases Pee-wee down with a dinosaur bone, we can see Simone in the background flailing her arms and screaming Andy's name. At first she's walking towards a nearby staircase on the dinosaur's left side, but between cuts she quickly repositions and is now standing in front of the dinosaur's large foot instead.
Continuity mistake: When Pee Wee walks up to the bums at the drive in, the soda falls over in the holder in his right arm. When he steps in to give them their snow cones, it's instantly standing again only to see it fallen over again when he watches the fight scene with the ninjas on screen.
Continuity mistake: After throwing the candy to the bikers, Pee Wee is holding a box of Milk Duds and a candy bar. After he watches himself in the movie, the candy bar disappears then reappears behind the Milk Duds between shots. Then in the next shot of him skipping towards Dottie - all of the candy disappears completely.
Continuity mistake: When Pee Wee is dressed as a nun on the sound stage, he looks impatiently at the bike - we see only a shadow from the bike on the left side. Then from the front shot, there is now the shadows of the actors right all behind the bike which weren't there in the prior shot.
Continuity mistake: When Pee-Wee is wandering through the Warner Bros. lot in search of Kevin Morton, he asks a feminine-toned crew member for help. The member grabs his helmet with the left hand, saying "Gee I don't know." But in the next shot he reaches for the helmet all over again.
Continuity mistake: At the police station when Sgt. Hunter tells Pee-Wee that hundreds of bikes are stolen every month and very few are recovered, her hands change positions between shots. Initially she's holding them together while talking to Pee-Wee, but then her right hand is waving a blue pen around.
Continuity mistake: During the Warner Bros. chase sequence, Pee-Wee blasts through a studio that's filming a beach-themed movie. Upon exiting into the alley - where only a couple of idle trucks are present - he's pursued by a security guard driving a boat with two skiers in tow. But in the next shot, a station wagon and three actors emerge in the alley from out of nowhere.
Continuity mistake: When Pee-Wee is in the car with Mickey, some shots are shown from Mickey's point of view and you can see the background behind Pee-Wee. If you look carefully, you can see that in the background there is a road that comes into the main road they are driving on. This smaller road appears twice, as if they have not moved anywhere.
Continuity mistake: After Mickey and Pee-Wee evade the highway patrolman, Mickey takes a good look at Pee-Wee in the outfit and smiles. Before the scene cuts away, you can see how the convertible is missing its rear-view mirror. Soon Pee-Wee sends the car over a cliff's ledge and, as they're screaming together on the way down, a rear-view mirror is hanging from the windshield all of a sudden. But once the car hits ground, the mirror is no longer there.
