Mr. Popper's Penguins

Continuity mistake: After Popper gets the other penguins he opens the box and leaves it in the living room, but when the kid opens the door the box disappears.

Other mistake: A letter from Popper's father falls unnoticed beneath a cabinet. For several days the room is covered with snow to accommodate the penguins. After the snow is removed, Popper discovers the letter but the envelope is not damp, waterlogged or damaged in any way.

Continuity mistake: At the Guggenheim Museum, the penguins bump into a man pushing a barrel of ice and the barrel overturns. The penguins immediately begin sliding on the wet floor, but all the ice has vanished and instead there is only water on the floor. In addition, the water covers several hundred feet of the floor, far more than what a barrelful would cover.

Trivia: When a man is knocked over by the penguins at the Guggenheim, he yells a Wilhelm Scream.

Mr. Popper: Hello! I have to send the penguins back.
Voice On Phone: Send-da-penguin?
Mr. Popper: Yes, send penguins.

Question: Why are there no baby penguins in the scene where they go to the zoo and escape?

Chosen answer: Zoos in places without lots of natural arctic temperatures are probably not equipped well enough to care for the acute needs that baby penguins would require.
