Popeye

Popeye (1980)

Continuity mistake: Popeye goes to Bluto's ship. He finds his pappy there: he's tied to the chair hanging in the ceiling. Popeye gets excited, and notice that before he hugs his pappy he takes his pipe out of his mouth. When we see Popeye again, the pipe is back to his mouth. Too fast to be real.

Continuity mistake: At the races, Wimpy has Swee'pea at the line up board, asking which horse to bet on. As Castor walks in, the shot cuts to Wimpy at the board. The number 7 slot is empty, and no attendant is there. As the shots alternate between Wimpy and Castor, there is an attendant behind Wimpy erasing slot 7, starting to write, then gone again after Castor goes by. In the next moment, Wimpy is directly in front of the board asking Swee'pea. After picking Holy Moley, the next wide shot has the attendant back again with a name in slot 7.
