Other mistake: When Lulu is looking at herself in a three sided mirror as a monkey, the reflections do not match up with her position of her hands. Most noticeably with the reflection on the right side. (00:05:40)

Continuity mistake: After waking up, Lulu's clothes are suspended from the ceiling and she leaps from the bed down into them, getting them perfectly on her in an instant and then runs off. Her hat is not amongst the items, and as she runs off screen you see that she has nothing on her head. But the shot changes to her running directly to the bathroom, and suddenly her little red hat is on her head. (00:01:10)

Continuity mistake: Lulu dashes to the bathroom after getting out of bed to go brush her teeth. In the side shot as she grabs her toothbrush, it is orange. But when it cuts to an over the shoulder view of her putting toothpaste on it, suddenly it is dark green. (00:01:15)

Question: After the Shoulder Angel appears on Lulu's stick and says that she's playing hooky, and it's a bad sign, the Shoulder Demon then appears and says some snarky remarks to the Angel. I have listened to that part over and over again trying to catch it, but I can't quite make out what the demon says, and the DVD does not have subtitles. To the best I can tell, it sounds like the shoulder demon appears and says "Naaaa! Take a powder, sister! Fishin’s for fishes, hairline." But that doesn't make any sense. Can someone tell me what she actually says? And then after the angel tells Lulu that if she doesn't go to school, she will grow up to be a mule, the demon says another line I can't quite make out, but sounds like she says "Ahhh! your brother's mustache!" as she pulls the Angel's halo down over her. What does she actually say there?

Question: At the end, the teacher makes Lulu write something on the black board 1000 times. It's difficult to make out, but what exactly is it she is writing?

Chosen answer: She writes "I'll never play hooky again."
