Continuity mistake: Once the orchestra falls apart and begin fighting each other, the Lion gets made and begins ripping out his hair. Then some instruments smack him in the face and he falls backwards. It then cuts to a close up of him and suddenly an object, apparently part of the stage props, appears in the background at the top corner. It is not his podium seen in the previous shot.
Continuity mistake: After the inflated bird is popped by the fly, it lands on what appears to be an ape's head and begins spinning around and tap dancing on its head. The ape has both eyes open and looks pissed as he keeps playing his cello. Before the camera cuts, the bird has spun slowly so it's back is to the camera and the ape still has both eyes open. Then it switches to a different shot as another animal is about to smack the bird with his cello, and suddenly the bird is facing the opposite direction, and the ape has one eye closed.
Continuity mistake: A bird with a violin begins shooting off his bows like arrows, and they all follow the same trajectory and go over some flute dogs' heads. They don't duck in time for a couple of them and their wigs are taken off. The bows then fly and put the wigs on an elephant and a hippo, but at different angles. They should have been coming in at the same angle.
Continuity mistake: As the orchestra begins playing, the lion is waving back and forth at each side as he conducts the music. In the far shot, his tail is not visible. But when it cuts to a close up of him, suddenly you can see his tail. It is large enough that the yellow tail should have been visible against his black suit in the far shot.
Audio problem: When the lion walks on stage, the audience becomes completely quiet and all that can be heard is the sound of the lion's voice. Behind him is only a curtain that hides the orchestra from view. Once he finishes speaking, he turns around and the curtain opens, and suddenly you can hear the orchestra doing sound checks on their instruments and it is loud, the lion tapping his podium to quieten them so they know the concert is about to start. This means merely a curtain was keeping their sound check from being heard at all until it was open?
Continuity mistake: When the Lion says, "Now, to an all musical program" he raises his arms and his shadow is behind him up on the curtain. But without him moving, it cuts to a far shot, and suddenly his shadow is on the ground beside him with one arm of the shadow up on the curtain.
Continuity mistake: The lion on stage has a spotlight shining down on him from the top left at him in center stage. But about a minute into the song, suddenly the spotlight is now shining from his immediate right and perpendicular to the stage. Moments later, it is back from above to the left.
Continuity mistake: After the hands draw the concert hall, the lion conductor walks out on stage to address the crowd. He stops in the center of the stage and turns, facing straight forward towards the camera. But then it cuts to a close up and suddenly his body is facing to the left. You can also tell by his shadow that he is suddenly much closer to the curtain behind him.
Audio problem: As the short starts, a hand is drawing several animals with musical instruments to be in the orchestra. And during this there is a music score with the animation. The second one is a pig with a tuba. As the left hand reaches in to pull the picture of the pig away, there is a glitch in the music, it cutting out for a moment with a rough scratchy pop sound, then coming back in as the right hand begins drawing a bird with a violin.
