The Tale of Despereaux

Continuity mistake: When Despereaux fights the cat in the rat arena, he hides behind a blue ball of yarn. When the cat hits the yarn, causing Despereaux and the yarn to fly in the air, in the next shot, the ball of yarn vanishes and never reappears again.

Paul M Leslie

Continuity mistake: During the fight in the arena with the cat, the pink ball of yarn (the one not thrown in the air) disappears and reappears many times.


Narrator: When your heart breaks it can grow back crooked. It grows back twisted and gnarled and hard.

Teacher: Despereaux.
Despereaux: Yes?
Teacher: You didn't cower.
Despereaux: Look's like a sword.
Teacher: It's a carving knife.
Despereaux: It's beautiful.
Teacher: It's dangerous.
Despereaux: Do you have any more?

Narrator: Okay, remember when we told you how, once upon a time, there was this brave little mouse? Well, If you know anything about fairy tales, you know that a hero doesn't appear until the world really needs one.
