Revealing mistake: Near the end of the film, the mayor, played by Jim Backus, is speaking to Elliot the dragon, who is invisible. The mayor has a cigar in his mouth and smashes it when he turns to greet Elliot. The scene is accomplished by having Backus turn and smash the cigar into a large pane of glass. However, the reflections on the glass are visible.
Trivia: When Doc Terminus is tied to the harpoon shot from the cannon and goes through the building roof, you can hear a "Goofy Holler."
Question: How does Elliot get out of the lighthouse after he lights the lamp? He looks really stuck in there.
