Animalympics (1980)

Deliberate mistake: The 100-meter 'dash' goes over a longer distance and lasts longer than shown in the movie.

Other mistake: When Kit Mambo prepares to catch up with Renè Fromage, she first overtakes two guys (the raccoon and the bighorn sheep) on 'third and fourth positions' - as announced by Barbara Warbler, then she passes the sheep and the camel before she catches up with Renè. This would place her first competitors on positions five and four, instead of three and four.

Continuity mistake: When Boris Amphibiensky fails his high jump attempt during track and field, one of the bar's ends sticks to the post while the other reaches down to the ground. But the bar's length is only about an eighth of the posts' height, which is more than 77 feet, so the one end shouldn't reach the ground while the other still hangs on to the post's top.

Trivia: The black-and-white clip of the movie Bjorn Freeborg is supposed to play in originates from the Swedish movie 'The Seventh Seal' (Sjunde inseglet; 1957), where Death (Bengt Ekerot) and the Knight (Max von Sydow) play chess for the Knight's life. The movie was directed by Ingmar Bergmann, who is here aptly renamed 'Ingmar Birdman'.
