Continuity mistake: When Victor enters the room it appears that the piano keys are going the wrong way - Emily is playing the high notes with her left hand. I thought this was done on purpose, but when Victor sits down and begins to play, the keys are back to normal.

Continuity mistake: During the opening credits when the two butchers are cutting off fish heads a cat is moving its tail back and forth. If you watch closely the tail will stop moving on the left then change to the right side before moving again.

Continuity mistake: The scene where Victor tells Emily to stay in the woods because he has to see his parents, Emily gets the maggot out of her ear. When the maggot is in the snow you see Emily's head right by the screen and no footprints are spotted. But when the maggot tells her something about Victor, footprints appear only a few inches from the maggot.

Question: In one of the extras, Tim Burton says that he got the idea for Corpse Bride from a story. He said just that it was just a few paragraphs, but what is the story that he is talking about?

Answer: It's a 19th century Russian Jewish folk-tale - the story starts quite similarly, with the lead character saying his vows while putting the ring on what he believes to be a stick. The tale generally finishes with the rabbis annulling the marriage and the living bride vowing to honour the memory of the corpse bride throughout her marriage - which ties into the Jewish tradition of honouring the dead through the lives of the living.
