Audio problem: As the short starts, a hand is drawing several animals with musical instruments to be in the orchestra. And during this there is a music score with the animation. The second one is a pig with a tuba. As the left hand reaches in to pull the picture of the pig away, there is a glitch in the music, it cutting out for a moment with a rough scratchy pop sound, then coming back in as the right hand begins drawing a bird with a violin.

Continuity mistake: After the hands draw the concert hall, the lion conductor walks out on stage to address the crowd. He stops in the center of the stage and turns, facing straight forward towards the camera. But then it cuts to a close up and suddenly his body is facing to the left. You can also tell by his shadow that he is suddenly much closer to the curtain behind him.

Continuity mistake: The lion on stage has a spotlight shining down on him from the top left at him in center stage. But about a minute into the song, suddenly the spotlight is now shining from his immediate right and perpendicular to the stage. Moments later, it is back from above to the left.

Lion: Greetings, my good friends. You all, undoubtedly, have been under the delusion or shall I say, misapprehension, that we of the cartoon animal kingdom, are lacking in the finer sensibilities. Now to disprove this we shall ask you to forget our formal pranks and playfulness. We ask you in the name of dignity, and art to put yourselves in a receptive frame of mind. And not to expect of us the foolery, and clowning you generally associate us with. And now, to an all musical program.
