Continuity mistake: After the inflated bird is popped by the fly, it lands on what appears to be an ape's head and begins spinning around and tap dancing on its head. The ape has both eyes open and looks pissed as he keeps playing his cello. Before the camera cuts, the bird has spun slowly so it's back is to the camera and the ape still has both eyes open. Then it switches to a different shot as another animal is about to smack the bird with his cello, and suddenly the bird is facing the opposite direction, and the ape has one eye closed.

Continuity mistake: In a saloon, Moe and Curly are playing poker with Longhorn Pete, the proprietor. Among Curly's five cards are an ace of hearts and an ace of diamonds. Moe's cards include an ace of spades and an ace of clubs. They pass some of the cards to each other under the table in the hope that one of them will wind up with all four aces. When their cards are shown again, Curly and Moe each have an ace of spades and ace of clubs. The ace of hearts and ace of diamonds have disappeared.
Continuity mistake: The entries into Quartermain's journal are supposedly covering events during 1881 and 1882. The entries consist of a day and a date, but no month. Taken in order, they cannot fit into the 1881-1882 calendar. For example, the two entries immediately before the June eclipse can only be in August 1882.Noman
Continuity mistake: When we see the animals change seats at the start of the cartoon, you can see there is an aisle in the middle of the theatre, but when the show begins in the next shot, the aisle has disappeared.
Continuity mistake: When Porky arrives home, you can see a window looking outside to the right of the front door, but when Porky shoots the man upstairs a second time, the front door now leads to a hallway with a staircase.
Continuity mistake: When Stan and Ollie arrive at Brushwood Gulch, they show Mickey Finn the deed they've got for Mary Roberts, and it has a couple of holes in it from where Stan has been keeping it in his shoe; Ollie even unfurls it to show the camera it's got holes. But in every other shot after that, whenever the deed is shown, it's got no holes in it whatsoever and is perfectly clean.Heather Benton
