Revealing mistake: When Toulon's puppet stage is set on fire, the flames in the foreground look rather like they are projected from a regularly set row of blow torches, rather than erratically flickering flames on a wooden floor. (00:25:05)
Visible crew/equipment: When the general is killed by the six shooter, you can see the cameraman.
Other mistake: Toulon dons two Nazi uniforms to make his escape. But with him as a relatively skinny old man and with his beard (since no Wehrmacht or other Nazi personnel came with nothing more than moustaches), and not to mention being recognizable via the 'Gesucht' ('Wanted') flyers, he would have stuck out like a sore thumb.
Trivia: The filmmakers wanted to make a puppet that would be the perfect "opposition" to the evil Nazis in the film. They came up with the idea for a cowboy puppet, since he could represent a popular American archetype, and of course the Americans opposed the Nazis in the war. They then combined the cowboy with an old idea for a six-armed ninja puppet, resulting in the popular puppet "Six Shooter."
