The Scarlet Pumpernickel

Continuity mistake: When Daffy begins reading "The Scarlet Pumpernickel" at the start of the cartoon, you can see that the script is by the wall. Later on, both Daffy and the script are in front of J.L.'s desk, and a few shots later they are near the wall again.

Continuity mistake: When Daffy Duck is changing into the Scarlet Pumpernickel at the inn, you can see there is a stand with a hand on it behind the screen where he is changing, but when Daffy jumps out from the screen after he has finished, the stand is now in the corner.

Continuity mistake: When the Scarlet Pumpernickel (Daffy) takes a box outside his pocket when he arrives at the church, you can see that there is nothing on the box and he puts his hand on the box to open it. But when we see the box in the next shot, it now has "Ye Olde Olympic High Jumper" on it and the Scarlet Pumpernickel's hand is no longer on the box.
