Continuity mistake: The sign on the door at the beginning of the cartoon initially reads "Goode and Korny Talent Agents", but in the next shot it now says just "Goode and Korny".

Continuity mistake: When Porky tells the fox that he has to wait his turn for his audition, you can see there is nothing beside the wall, but when we see a close-up of Porky in the next shot, a filing cabinet appears out of nowhere.

Continuity mistake: When the grasshopper is performing his audition at the start of the cartoon, you can see there is nothing by the door, but when the door opens and the grasshopper appears, a spittoon and a cigarette end have appeared.

Continuity mistake: When the dog with the flea circus comes in for his audition, he hands Porky his card and you can see that Porky is holding the card with his right hand, but when the camera closes up on the card in the next shot, Porky is now holding the card with his left hand.

Continuity mistake: When the turtle comes in saying he is known as "The Man with 1000 Voices", look at Porky. You can see that the drawer in the filing cabinet behind him is closed and he is sitting directly in front of it, but after the turtle has finished his audition, the filing cabinet has moved a few inches away to the left and the drawer is now open.

Continuity mistake: When the turtle who says he is "The Man with 1000 Voices" is standing at Porky's desk, you can see he has his hat in his hand, but in the next shot he is wearing his hat on his head.

Trivia: Two of the acts that audition for Porky are a man whose trained pigeons fly out of a window, and a fox who does a dangerous stunt involving drinking chemicals. These acts would be re-used in a 1957 Friz Freleng cartoon, "Show Biz Bugs", with Daffy Duck as the performer.
