Other mistake: Just before Jack and Pee-Wee start singing in the rail car, their train passes by some empty farmland. Pay particular attention to the buildings on the horizon, though. After a few songs, Pee-Wee can't take it anymore and decides to cover his ears and bail out - but where he lands is the very same location described before the singing began (note the exact same buildings and distance to them, which hasn't changed at all), as if the train didn't cover any ground. (00:51:15 - 00:52:05)
Revealing mistake: When the pancakes are sticking to the ceiling, you can see that when one hits the ceiling, it jumps. The pancakes were actually being dropped on the floor with an upside down shot. (00:05:45)
Pee-wee: Go ahead and scream your head off! We're miles from where anyone can hear you.
Trivia: Tim Burton appears in a cameo when Pee Wee is accosted in the alley on his way to the psychic. He says to Pee Wee, "we don't take kindly to strangers on our turf!" (00:30:35)
Question: When Pee-Wee offers gum to Francis and Mr. Buxton as a peace offering, what was it with the gum that caused Mr. Buxton to scream?
