Dumbo

Continuity mistake: When the elephants in the circus are making a pyramid on top of a ball, as it changes from shot to shot the colour of the blankets on their backs changes.

Revealing mistake: When the elephants are making fun of Dumbo in the train caboose, Dumbo's mother pulls a pin which causes the stall door above the other elephants to fall. When the door bounces back up, you can see that the animators forgot to draw the elephants' heads and trunks and only their bodies are visible.

Continuity mistake: At the end of "When I See an Elephant Fly," the crows laugh and tumble to the ground. In the two shots of them laughing on the ground, you can see a crow dressed in red and pink with a cigar in his mouth on the left side of the screen. This crow plus the four other crows in the shot PLUS the leader of the crows equals six crows. Throughout the rest of the sequence, there are only five crows, and the extra crow is never seen again.
