Trivia: Throughout the movie, Aquamarine is always eating salt and putting salt in strange things like ice cream. To film these scenes, they had the actress, Sara Paxton, eat sugar instead.

Brother Bear (2003)

Continuity mistake: At the beginning and end of the film, there is a narration who the subtitles label as Sitka, but at the very beginning, we see that the narrator is actually Denahi.

Drake and Josh (2004)

The Bet - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: During the scene in the science classroom, the teacher draws a circle on the chalkboard and refers to it as a picture of the human eye. In following shots, this picture constantly changes from having other parts like irises and pupils to just being a blank circle.

Spirited Away (2001)

Question: On the DVD, there are two sets of subtitles. One follows what is being said closely and includes sound effects. The other follows the general idea of what the characters are saying, but the sentences are written differently. What is the purpose of the second one? Also, why do even the accurate subtitles show Lin as Rin, Zeniba as Zaneba and Kohaku River as Kalaku River?

Susan Kirk

Chosen answer: This is probably because one track follows a near direct translation from Japanese, while the other subtitle track follows Japanese more loosely but is one that a westerner can relate to better. A normal western person who never had any experience with Japanese would be puzzled why there are sound effects in the text, that is because Japanese has a lot of specific sound effects for many thing, like the sound of someone walking and makes a quick stop, the sound of someone becoming shy etc. And as with Lin and Rin, these are pronounced the same way in Japan.

Paging Dr. Drake - S2-E9

Trivia: When Josh has the broken foot, the hospital he goes to is called St. Schneider's. This is a reference to the show's director, Dan Schneider.

Susan Kirk

Audio problem: During the song "My Lullaby" where Nuka makes his comment which at the end of it causes Vitani to push him off the rock/tree stump, he is still calmly singing his line about half a second after Vitani pushes him off.

Susan Kirk

Continuity mistake: When Rafiki is in the tree and Mufasa formulates a plan, there is a gourd that falls and breaks and Rafiki then picks up to symbolise the plan. Then he says "Are you crazy? This will never work!" and makes a hand gesture, meaning that he dropped the gourd pieces. However, they are not visible in the overhead shot when he says, "I just hope you know what you are doing!"

Teen Titans (2003)

Stranded - S4-E9

Continuity mistake: Right after Beastboy "pulls the red candy cane thingamahoozit", and the T-ship flies toward the screen, Cyborg's hands and forearms are visible, even though they aren't found until the end of the episode.

Shrek (2001)

Question: In theatrical trailers, when the dwarves put Snow White on Shrek's table, he says "Dead girl off the table." In the real movie, however, "girl" becomes "broad", according to the subtitles. Is there a reason why?

Susan Kirk

Chosen answer: This is most likely because "broad" isn't too nice of a word, and children of any age could watch the trailer. Parents wouldn't want their children to copy inapropriate language, obviously.

Continuity mistake: When Garfield is looking for Telegraph Tower, he says it's next to a blue and orange tree. On the Kibbly Kat box however, there is no blue and orange tree on the box, let alone next to the tower.

Susan Kirk

Revealing mistake: When Garfield is in the air vent, he falls out into a box, which topples over. The Garfield that falls into the box is motionless, in a crouched position, and obviously a stuffed toy.

Susan Kirk

Question: In the Chamber, right before the Basilisk blasts out of the water, Tom Riddle says something about Lord Voldemort returning. As he says this, he holds out a hand in front of him and stares at it. Is there a reason for this?

Susan Kirk

Chosen answer: As it states in the film Tom Riddle is Voldemort; as he was at school, and he put the memory of himself into the diary. Whilst in the chamber he is taking the life out of Ginny Weasly to bring himself back and get voldemort back to full power again. So as he pulls the power out of Ginny he is becoming more than a memory and therefore solid - this is why he is looking at his hand, he's watching himself become solid and real again.
