Continuity mistake: At the end of "When I See an Elephant Fly," the crows laugh and tumble to the ground. In the two shots of them laughing on the ground, you can see a crow dressed in red and pink with a cigar in his mouth on the left side of the screen. This crow plus the four other crows in the shot PLUS the leader of the crows equals six crows. Throughout the rest of the sequence, there are only five crows, and the extra crow is never seen again.
