Visible crew/equipment: Aunt Em gives Dorothy a cruller and says to her, "…and find yourself a place where you won't get into any trouble". Just as Aunt Em runs away you can see an equipment shadow fall across Dorothy's dress. (00:05:20)

????

Continuity mistake: During the storm the farm hands let the horses go and Dorothy runs to the back of the house as the wind blows directly in her face. If you look closely a large wood plank is sent sliding on the road, in the wrong direction into the wind. (00:15:50)

????

Continuity mistake: The house we see in the cyclone has all of it's windows intact. When it lands they're all out. (00:18:40)

????

Revealing mistake: When Dorothy runs to the back of the house during the storm a crewmember is moving the rocking chair in the room on the left. The wind never stops blowing, but the chair stops moving after it's left alone. (00:16:35)

????

Continuity mistake: As Zeke feeds the pigs we see his hankie sticking straight up out of his back pocket. He doesn't touch it but later before he pulls it out after rescuing Dorothy, it's hanging downward and much more is showing. (00:04:00)

????

Continuity mistake: When Dorothy runs to the back of the house during the storm the field in the background is not the same as we saw a few shots earlier as Aunt Em calls for her. (00:15:35 - 00:16:45)

????

Continuity mistake: When Glinda starts singing, "Come out, Come out" she's not on the Yellow Brick Road. In the next shot she is. (00:22:55)

????

Continuity mistake: As she talks to the Scarecrow, Dorothy says to Toto, "Wasn't he pointing the other way?". In several of the close up shots wind is blowing her hair around and in others it isn't. (00:34:30)

????

Visible crew/equipment: Glinda sends Dorothy off saying, "Just follow the Yellow Brick Road" and Dorothy walks through the shadow of the camera's crane. (00:32:05)

????

Continuity mistake: As Dorothy and the Scarecrow exchange, "How do you dos" the straw coming out of the left side of his shirt triples between shots. (00:35:05)

????

Continuity mistake: When Dorothy first meets the Scarecrow there are no pumpkins on the left side of the Yellow Brick Road. Later when he starts to dance pumpkins have been added. (00:33:55 - 00:36:50)

????

Continuity mistake: As Dorothy and the rest are chased by the flying monkeys the order of the four changes between shots each time we see them in the overhead shots. (01:15:10)

????

Visible crew/equipment: As Dorothy is leaving Munchkinland the shadow of the camera on its dolly can be seen on the floor to the right of the screen as several Munchkins almost get run over. The shadow of the cameraman's head can be seen on the bottom right of the screen as they pass her house. (00:33:15)

????

Continuity mistake: As the Munchkins send Dorothy off singing "We're off to see the Wizard" the red coated guard is hanging out of his booth as he waves his sword. In the next shot he's inside the booth tapping time with his sword. (00:33:30)

????

Continuity mistake: Before Dorothy leaves Munchkinland she has a blue flower in her basket. She never touches the basket but as she dances out of town it's not there. (00:32:55)

????

Audio problem: When Dorothy and the Scarecrow find the apple trees she says, "Oh, look, apples." The overdub is wrong, if you look closely at her mouth when she turns around toward the camera, she's actually not saying anything. (00:39:20)

????

Continuity mistake: As he escapes Toto runs up the drawbridge and moves a foot to the left between shots than back again. (01:17:30)

????

Continuity mistake: When the Tin Man is attacked by six flying monkeys they take away his axe. Several seconds later he has it again. (01:15:20)

????

Continuity mistake: Talking to the Wizard the Scarecrow says, "What about the heart you promised Tin Man …" and the position of the characters changes between shots. (01:29:15)

????

Continuity mistake: When the Wizard says, "Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain" he pulls the curtain closed and Toto's not there. In the next shot Toto's tied to the curtain again. (01:28:35)
